21 Awkward Moments Everyone With Curly Hair Understands

DON'T TOUCH MY HAIR.

Posted on

1. Trying to put on a hat, because why not, and realizing your hair is too big for it.

And also knowing that when you remove said hat, what's left is a frizzy ball of POOF.

2. Breaking your hair tie on a bad hair day and being completely helpless to do anything about it.

Really? TODAY this had to happen? Can I borrow someone's tie... I won't break it (I don't think).

3. When you make the mistake of trying to brush out a knot in your hair, only to find THOUSANDS MORE.

WHY DID I DO THIS!?

4. Any time (and there are many) when a brush actually breaks after you use it on your hair.

6. And every summer, when all of the humidity in the air collects directly on your hair and unintentionally makes you 2 feet taller.

7. Trying a new stylist and realizing they have no idea how to style curls, but it's too late...

13. When you're trying to explain to someone how annoyingly long your hair is, and they say, "It doesn't look long..."

14. Getting an actual headache because your ponytail full of curls is so damn heavy.

15. When you complain about your hair and someone suggests, "Why don't you just straighten it?"

Oh, I would, I just don't have 2 hours of free time every day, OK?

18. When you're having a really unwieldy curl day and people call you out on it.

Just like cats, our curls are unpredictable: sweet and lovable some days, heinous clawing creatures the next.

19. Making the mistake of showering right before bed and having to decide how best to proceed...

instagram.com

Fall asleep on it and wake up potentially looking crazy, or stay up all night to preserve it... WHY DID I DO THIS. (?!?)

20. Because when you fall asleep with wet hair, nothing good ever comes of it. Ever.

So pissed right now, tbh.

21. And when you look in a mirror on an AMAZING curly hair day, and realize your hair is so big and beautiful, it will likely take over the world... (and there's no way for you to stop it!)

Not that you'd want to, it's just awkward to think of all those fools who will be cast aside in your hair's shadow.
