Her: My co-worker saw your picture and thinks you’re beautiful.
Me: Aww, tell him I said thanks.
Her: But your hair wasn’t natural in that picture.
Her: I like your hair, it’s…different. What did you do?
Me: Oh, just washed and conditioned and then twirled small pieces around my finger with some gel to make spirals.
Her: Did you cut it? It looks short.
Me: *stretching a coil* It shrinks a lot but yes, I did cut about 3 inches last week.
Her: Well, there’s always weave.
Him: Your hair is really short
Me: No, it’s not…it’s just appears short because it shrinks a lot
Him: Your hair looks like…I don’t know…it’s an afro.
Me: Pretty much.
Him: Oh, I know! You look like Alicia Keys’ hair in “Secret Life of Bees”
Me: Is that a compliment or an insult
