I’ve grown to love my curly hair throughout my life, but there’s one thing I don’t love: dumb comments and questions regarding it. I don’t know why curly hair is so fascinating, but apparently it is. Seriously, you guys, it’s just hair. It’s not a magic trick.
Regardless, people loooove asking questions and commenting on curly hair. I understand that it’s different from yours so you’re curious, but you’re being weird. And you’re making me uncomfortable so just stop talking.
“Is that your real hair?”
Yes, yes it is. Is that your real hair? Why are you asking that?
“Can I touch it?”
No for several reasons. First, it’s my hair not a zoo exhibit. Second, if you touch it, you’ll mess it up. Keep your hands off my head.
“Do you ever straighten it?”
Sometimes I do, but I know this is your passive aggressive way of saying I should straighten it so…
“How long does it take?”
“OMG your hair looks so good straight! You should wear it like that more often.”
Gee, thanks. You should not talk about my hair ever again.
“I can’t believe you don’t brush your hair!”
Because brushing it will make me look like an Amazon woman who is in 100% humidity all the time. Because brushes are bad for curly hair and cause breakage. Because I don’t.
“Why do you use so much conditioner?”
Why do you care? I don’t ask you how much conditioner you use, creep.
“Ugh I hate dealing with frizz too!”
“You’re so lucky you can just wear your hair wet.”
Yup, that’s exactly how this works. I just get out of the shower and shake like a wet dog.
“Have you thought about a Brazilian Blowout?”
Have you tried thinking before you speak?
“I wish I had curly hair.”
I know, boo. I know.
