The Only Office Curly

So, I'm the only person in my office of around 100 people with naturally curly/wavy hair. This morning a coworker came over to my desk just to tell me she loves my hair. Bless her sweet heart. She said she wishes she had hair like mine. Then she said, "You don't even really have to work at that, do you?" Oh how that tickled me. I just told her that entirely depends on what I want it to look like. I wasn't about to diminish her sweet compliment by giving her the rundown and frustrations of my routine. Compliments are the best on days when I don't do anything special.

    Nice of her to acknowledge your curls. But the comment about how your hair is no work is kinda funny. :)

    Haha. Yeah, just wash and go, right? I wonder how many in your office are closet curlies though.

    @BrittanyM I've wondered the same thing. Sooooo many women straighten out their curls every single day and wouldn't dream of wearing their hair curly. That would be akin to going out without makeup on.
