My first compliment

beeduhbeeduh Posts: 684Registered Users
While I was out and about after work, I stopped by my health food store to pick up some flaxseeds (to make fsg. I'm so excited!), I ended up getting kiss my face gel that smells like grapefruit too, yumm.

Anyway, while checking out, the girl at the register told me I had pretty hair. (insert smiling blushing happy smiley here)
My first compliment since CG. Actually its a first for me from a stranger. I never get told I have pretty hair really. I guess cause everyone sees me with curly hair everyday.

Now I'm rambling. But I'd thought I'd share what happened to me today. It made me feel good about my hair ( even though I don't think it looks that great right now. Ha.). :]
CG as of Feb. 2012
combination hair.
2c on top - low elasticity
3a&b scattered underneath - normal elasticity.
fine texture. thin density. A lot of it.
porosity: normal to high.
loves protein and moisture.
BSACV as needed.

products may vary. i'm a PJ.
loving Curl Junkie, Curly Kinks, and AS I Am.
