People Keep Mistaking African-Caribbean Hairspray For Cooking Oil

"Why do you have sheen spray in your kitchen?"

Posted on

The 20-year-old said she was confused when she saw the spray, because "no one with Afro-texture hair" lived in the house.

Coral asked her friend: "Why do you have sheen spray in your kitchen?"

He replied: "It's cooking spray."

Coral was in disbelief. She explained to her friend that the oil is actually for black hair, but he was still adamant that the spray is cooking oil. "But it's got oil on the front," he insisted.

Coral said she messaged her friend Roisin about this bizarre incident while she was at the party. Roisin then tweeted about it the next day...

And now her tweet has been retweeted over 9,000 times, and it's also been liked over 6,000 times too.

Coral said she was "shocked" that the tweet went viral: "I didn't know Roisin had tweeted it then she sent me a message saying it had all blown up [on Twitter]. I thought it must have 50 or so retweets."

"But I didn’t think I would witness it in my friendship group." she added.

This isn't the first time this has happened. In fact, Coral said, she had seen a similar post of someone confusing oil sheen spray for cooking oil before.

Ya'll tell me WHY i found this in the kitchen cabinet. My mom wonders why her food taste bad. olive oil HAIR SHEEN.

People! Don't use hair sheen as cooking oil. That's not what it's for.
