Curly hair, don’t care. That’s a lie. I’m interested to hear reactions today. In many ways, for me, wearing my hair curly is much riskier than wearing it straight. My hair is unpredictable when I wear it curly. Will it come out correct? Will it frizz out and look like a mane to rival that of Albert Einstein? It also takes a little longer to do in the morning, I wash my hair, put some curl defining product in it, and then blow dry it with a diffuser. If it doesn’t work, it’s too late for me to rectify the problem before I have to leave for work. I think it turned out ok though.
First comment of the day was from a co-worker who walked into my room for our typical pre-work chat.
“Oh! I LOVE your hair like that!!! It looks so great!”
“I like your hair like that!” – co-worker
“I was just gonna say that. I just looked up and noticed your hair is curlier than normal.” – co-worker…probably a sympathy compliment as the other two people in the room have complimented my hair and she’s just sitting there.
Some more post lunch comments:
“Is that your natural hair? It looks so good! You should let it be curly like this every day! Did you put product in it?” – co-worker
“Your hair is getting so long! I like it!” – co-worker
And my “favorite” comment of the day goes to the person who said this…
“You know, maybe your student had a behavioral issue today because he didn’t like that you wore your hair curly.”
