it's annoying and it's rude. What I also hate are the stares. I always have girls looking in my head to see if the textures match. And when they figure out it's a ponytail, they seem relieved. Other times people don't even notice and the looks say they think it looks nice. But just like Buttaflygirl, when I used to relax my hair, people said it looked like a wig. I didn't understand what that meant, I thought it was an insult, but actually they said it looked too perfect. And that's when my hair was short!
But even with my hair natural, my SISTER asks me what I put in my hair to make it curl, and I say 'just gel' and she mocks me saying 'just gelStern Smile' and I'm like huh? Why are you HATIN on me?? But again, like I've said on another board, it's a form of self-hatred. Black women get jealous if they see another Black woman's hair looking long and luscious. It makes them feel bad b/c they BELIEVE they can't grow their own hair if they're not biracial etc etc.. I'm appauled that it's 2006 and Black people are STILL keepin up with this foolishness.
Oh, and White people never askLOL I've even gone in for hair consultations with a weave and they try to undo my 'hair' to see the texture then realize it's a weaveLOL Then they go 'Oh, that's not your hair' And I'm like 'nope'Tongue
But anyway, if someone compliments me and wants to know where I got it done, I'd tell them it's not all my hair. No big deal. But not if they're tryna be smart
