Positive nicknames!

WavyshibbyWavyshibby Posts: 165Registered Users
It seems like us curlies get called negative nicknames, such as "brillohead" and whatnot. But what are some positive nicknames that people call you that make you feel good about having curly hair? Share some below!

I'll start: I've gotten Goldilocks, Juliet from Romeo and Juliet, Lucie Manette from Tale of Two Cities, Taylor-twin (as in Taylor Swift), an angel, Shirley Temple, and Eve from Adam and Eve. Again these were all just based off my hair! Obviously I don't look like any of these but it's nice that my hair reminds people of these things :) Share away!

    I've worn my curls blonde before and was called Beyonce back then :)

    I had a short friend, I'm tall, and we went hair product shopping and saw the noodle head collection so she started calling me noodle. I started calling her stump but i forget where I got it from. "Stump n Noodle" we were lol it was funny.

    LOL I got brillo pad, from my step-dad. He said he could use my head to scrub pots. He still goes on about how "terrible" my hair is. I feel better not being alone =)

    I've been called Curly Locks; I thought it was cute. It sure beats "Fuzz Bomb and Brillo Head" like I was called in school for some years!

    I've been called floofy by the BF without irony and it's definitely made me feel cute and neat. I've heard a lot of stories about men preferring straight hair, so I'm lucky if he thinks my 4c hair is soft to the touch and fluffy. It's the little things :)

    Back on Cones,so now my routine is,wash with Deva No-Poo every other day or so. Occasionally use 365 sulfate free,maybe use low sulfate shampoo mixed with conditioner once every two weeks are longer. I condition with Aussie Moist or HEHH. I style with a little GF TN,and finish up with tons of GN Pure Clean Smoothing Cream. No frizz...slippy, happy hair.

    I've never minded being called Poodle, Medusa, Witchy Woman, etc.
    I take those all as compliments.
    I would take Scary Spice as a compliment too. : )
