Doesn't it bug you when someone with really greasy, fried, just plain gross hair tries to tell YOU to fix YOUR hair when your hair looks fine?

This is what happened to me at school yesterday morning...

I was standing outside the attendance office waiting to get a pass, along with this other group of girls...and one of these girls takes one look at me, turns to her friend, and goes "That girl is a disaster! She needs to fix that hair. She need a perm and some conditioner on that head!" I just laughed and said "really?...I need to fix MY hair?..Okay, whatever.." and got my pass to class and walked off.

I'm not trying to sound cocky or anything, because my hair is faaar from perfect, but this girl had super greasy, fried, black and blonde hair that looked like it'd all break off if she even ran a comb through it...like when hair is super damaged and gets all.."spongey" looking...I guess that's the word for it? I don't know.

I'm really not trying to sound mean or anything....but really...this girl's hair was...scary...I might have felt bad for her if she wasn't so rude to me and everyone else all the time.

    Oh, I can DEFINITELY relate!!!

    There was this one girl in my class. She had wavy/curly hair that she straightened every single day, with regular shampoo and conditioner (no moisturizing product of any kind), and she had the most fried, dull, stringy hair I have every seen!! She could have cared less whether it was frizzy, extremely damaged, or stringy---as long as it's straight!!! I was like, let me get this straight, you would be happy with your hair even if it was thin as paper, so damaged it looks like it caught on fire, as long as it was straight?? Yes. WOW. I may not have perfect curls, but my hair is always healthy and non-damaged.
    Shampoo and Conditioner: Suave Professionals Humectant

    Sorry, but I LOVE to straighten my hair!

    Wow. Great job! If that would've been me, well...let's just say it wouldn't have been pretty!

    Just the mere fact that her hair didn't look fabulous tells you that she can't judge good hair from bad hair. Or she could've even been jealous, who knows.

    I don't mean to sound rude or anything, but why is she telling you to put conditioner on her hair, when hers is fried and damaged? I mean really, who is she to say that?

    Anyway, that really stinks! I feel for you!

    Yes, this girl with the shortest, relaxed, damaged, highlighted hair with split ends told me I needed a perm. And when I said perm breaks your hair she said "No it doesn't, look at mine." I almost died laughing.

    I know EXACTLY what you mean. I see girls with the most busted up chemically damaged hair and they ask me "But why did you go natural?!?!? You'd look so pretty with it straight, your hair would look so healthy." Uhm. Yeah okay because that fried mess on your head is the epitome of health.

    'Grats on keeping your cool. I've had many, many people tell me to straighten my hair (and, yes, many of them have hideous, fried and discolored messes).

    Your stories reminded me of this time when I was in seventh grade... I used to draw really intricate designs all over my hands and this extremely tan kid saw it, grabbed my hand and examined it. I was a new student at this time and didn't really know how to react. Finally he looks up and goes, "You shouldn't draw on your hands. It gives you cancer." I stared for a moment, then said rather slowly, "So does tanning."

    His response was to give me a quizzical look and say "No it doesn't..." :roll:
