3 Getting weird looks form the cashier when you buy one shampoo, but four conditioners. One is never enough.

6 Regularly losing your earrings and finding them two days later… in your hair.
7 Dealing with random people touching your head. All. The. Time.
8 Getting annoyed when someone offers to straighten your hair after you think you’ve done a pretty good job of it yourself.
9 Chasing women with beautiful curls down the street to ask which products they use.
10 Putting plaits in your hair to get a wave, and ending up with an Afro instead.

12 hearing your friends complain that you never wear your hair loose for a full day.
13 Having to accept that you will never have a ‘sleek ponytail’.
14 Feeling like you’ve personally funded the entire haircare industry. And then having to ask for a raise to support the habit.

17 Having hair that retains more water than a pregnant woman.
18 Knowing that you will never be an effortless, ready-in-five-minutes kind of girl.
