    Why have I not thought of this??? That whole image made me happy, rofl

    I really need to keep this in mind next time someone tries to feel my scalp uninvited.

    ^^This is one of the VERY few regrets I have about not having kids. I've always wondered how much more of a backbone I would have gained had I had children.

    I am not a mean person, but when stuff like this happens, the first thing to enter my mind is that these people who do this type of stuff KNOW that they are wrong.
    So if they are going to be bold enough cross that line with me, I'm going to be bold enough to help them face the results of their actions. Maybe the next time they will think twice.
    Co-signing...I have always been nonconfrontational but especially since entering my mid-40s I've gotten a lot better at checking people when they need to be checked.

    I've said before that a lot of why I don't get a lot of rudeness about my hair has to do with where I live and who I'm around. Just being real...if I were still living in the south suburbs of Chicago I know for a FACT I'd be getting a lot more flak.
    Hello, 2021. Glad to see you. Hope you're bringing us goodness and light this year!

    "You don't do nothing to your hair."
    "You have so much potential, you should straighten it"
    "I'm gonna have to brush your hair for you one day"
    "What is this? ahahha (as said person rummages around my hair.)"

    And I know recently I have hands in my hair most of my time, because frankly, natural hair feels awesome. It amazes me to know I have these millions of tiny coffee stirrer slinkies over my head. And since it's longer than before, I can actually appreciate how cool my hair is. Even though it still lays half an inch on top of my head (because I have a strict no combing and heat regimen) , the year of healthy hair care has made it grow to around 4,5,6 inches.

    I love my hair, and obviously, I don't let comments get in the way of me loving my hair, because I accept who I am and who I am not and what God gave me as attributes I should cherish and love. BUT,what I don't understand is, why do people find the need to huff and puff about my hair, when they do the same straight hair look every single day. If they can do it and noone bothers them, why can't I? The whole situation is starting to annoy me, and while I do find it awesome how some of my friends want to play with my hair and stuff, I think I'm starting to let those snippy comments annoy da heck out of me, thus making me become strict and no-play about my natural hair, when I don't want to do that.
    I applaud you for being proud no matter what. Your hair is about YOU. People are just used to things being a certain way and are having a hard time changing. Trying to erase years of brainwashing is very hard. It's important that you stay true to yourself.

    Ladies, I know its annoying to have people touch your hair, but be careful about reaching for theirs. People are walking around half-hinged these days. They shoot over the dumbest things.
    At this point in my life, I just give the naysayers with a look that says, 'Its really not a good idea to pursue this further'. They keep their opinions to themselves.
    Better keep yourself clean and bright; you are the window through which you must see the world.
    - George Bernard Shaw

    How far that little candle throws his beams! So shines a good deed in a naughty world.
    - William Shakespeare

    You can stand tall without standing on someone. You can be a victor without victims.
    - Harriet Woods
