Ever wondered what it might be like for a man dating and/or living with a natural haired sister; there is a dark side...
#1. Everything smells like coconut oil.
#2. Keeps using my gym t-shirts to dry her hair.
#3. Getting yelled at for using the olive oil she just bought to prepare us a surprise dinner. My bad I guess.
#4. Night after night, that damn silk bonnet will not come off for anything.
#5. Henna stains.
#6. Doesn't comprehend my physical and mental inability to braid or twist hair.
#7. Countless near death experiences in the shower caused by slipping on conditioner.
#8. Catches me looking (harmlessly, haha) at another sister with straight hair and automatically accuses me of preferring relaxed hair.
#9. That pudding in the fridge is NOT pudding.
#10. The countless hours of Youtube tutorials and actually knowing who Curly Mae is.
#11. Damn near eats me alive for buying her shampoo instead of conditioner.
#12. Bobby pins everywhere... so many bobby pins.
#13. Finding mayonnaise, eggs and avocado in the bathroom doesn't shock me any more.
#14. Ignorantly running my fingers through her hair freshly styled hair... and product primed hair.
#15. Mysterious spray stains on the mirror.
#16. Having to constantly remind myself not to play 'Spot the Weave' in a crowded room.
#17. Other brothers ogling her ;)
This goes out to all our 'significant others' out there. Thanks for sticking with us through all our complexities. xoxo
Reasons why you love us and our hair coming soon...
