    This video is the best! If I had a nickel for everytime I said, "My arm is tired. . . " in relation to my hair I'd be a wealthy woman. And the part about the cotton pillowcase not being part of my lifestyle, man it's so true! It's so freaking true it's not even funny. And I also wigged out in my hotel room 2 weeks ago when I couldn't find my precious kinky curly and had three people looking for it.

    P.S. OMG crazycatlady, that quip of yours has me giggling.

    Friend: you have awesome curls today!
    Me: Yesterday I put olive oil and honey in my hair and I left it in for an hour before rinsing it out.
    Friend: You what?

    Me: Today I will try x on my hair
    Friend: Are you ever going to stop experimenting with your hair?

    Me in front of the mirror in the bathroom at school, with my head upside down and scrunching with wet hands after being outside in the wind.
    My friend brushing her hair next to me: OMG these tangles, I'm tired of them. I definitely hate brushing my hair.
    Me: I only comb my hair once every three days or so, when showering
    Friend: blank face

    Mother: Can you brush your hair please?
    Me: If you want me to look like I have been in an explosion, I can yes.

    (Ps: both the friend and mother are straighthaired, obviously)

    Tell me about it. I should've been more mindful of this fact when I got my layers put in. And now they're growing extra slow because they keep climbing up my scalp. Bouncy little buggers. :sad11:

    People: "My hair is so dry, I need to stop straightening it! But I don't like my natural poofy hair."
