The below video is kinda old but I just saw it and it had me rollin’! If only there was a book we could hand to somebody to say, DON’T say that, DON’T do that, its offensive and rude when it comes to our hair. What if you had to make a curly girl etiquette book, what would you put in it?
1.) Don’t weave check me – If you find yourself wanting to know if I have tracks, get over it ‘caz you aint never gonna know’. Am I the only one that gets a little offended if Im asked ‘is that a weave’? Don’t get me wrong I’ve said this a million times, there is nothing wrong with a weave! but if a girl has a weave, youÂ don’tÂ need to ask ‘is that a weave?’ and if a girlÂ doesn’tÂ have a weave, you don’t need to ask ‘is that a weave?’
Unless you plan to dim the lights, eat oysters with me, drink a little too much wine and run your fingers through that bad boy, just enjoy the view. Boo!
2.) Don’t tug on my hair to see how far it stretches, first of all your handsÂ shouldn’tÂ be in my hair without my permission and second of all, why do you care so much? – side eye
3.) I love Shanti’s example where she did her hair, the works, washed, conditioned, deep conditioned, detangled, twisted it into a million little sections, dried it for hours and thenÂ releasedÂ it and all you can think of to ask is , ‘girl did you ‘do’ your hair today’? That one is like…. super offensive, IÂ don’tÂ look at you and ask you if your ish was ‘done’ (in my mind thinking, no she didnt after all that I did last night into the morning!) notÂ becauseÂ you are not rocking your hair quite like mine, means mine is unkempt and yours is perfect!
Â 4.) When you straighten your hair and the compliments are soo overwhelming in comparison to when you rock your flyiest wash and go. ‘Why it gotta be all that? what about when its curly? never mind….Â don’tÂ answer that….forget it… SMH!’
Â 5.) Can you make a ponytail yet? – Really!? did that question make you feel good? So you call that spiky limp thingÂ hangingÂ from that big old fat pink scrunchy a pony tail? -Â I’mÂ about to go HAM on you right now and its probably not even necessary.
Â 6.) Dudes that have way too much to say about how you wear your hair – If your jeans are tighter than mine, and your boxerÂ briefsÂ are showing so much I can see your ‘gigglyÂ goods’ (Don’t even front sweety…. everyone knows you only work on biceps at the gym and you can’t spell SQAT) and youÂ haven’tÂ had a hair cut but you think its cute cause you got a fly snap-back!Â don’tÂ even say ‘hi’ to me much lessÂ criticizeÂ my hair.
When a guy is in your life or not and he wants to say some ish about how you look, what he would rather see you do to your hair and he can’t get it together one day out of the week, that to me is the biggest contradiction and sometimes weÂ don’tÂ want to hurt their feelings but you Â might just have to. Number one rule,Â don’tÂ come at me crazy looking crazy! ~ haha
Â That’s it! thats what I would put in it…. check out what the girls came up with:
I had to put the video at the end because all of a sudden these YouTube videos mess up my formatting ~ EM
