First dates…loved my many, hated by a minority. Dating someone you know is not as difficult as dating someone you just met. Things you are normally secure about often turn into insecurity. Some people already feel the nerves kicking a day prior to the date. However, when it comes to your hair there are some thoughts you might have on the special day!
Many naturals often do not know what their date thinks of their hair. Especially, when it is someone from a different ethnical background.
- “How will I style my hair?”
These are more or less the thoughts that females have: “If I pull my hair up, he would not notice how I rock these gorgeous curls. But If I wear my hair down it might frizz during the day. On the other hand, frizz results in more volume…hm”
- “Great, it’s a rainy day today!”
The days prior to the date there was no rain. However, when shaking your gorgeous manes you cannot help but notice a weird noise. *Tik Tik Tik* When opening the curtains, you notice the cloudy skies and the rain.
- “Oh damn I am running late…oh well I will be fashionably late”
You try to invent a ‘rain-resistant’ hair do, but really end up wearing a beanie, head wrap or you pull your hair into a bun.
- “Why is he staring so much at my hair? Did I forget to remove the sectioning clip?” *Carefully touches hair* “Oh pview, false alarm!”
- “Where is his hand going though?”
Often a guy politely asks if he can touch your hair. On the other hand, there are many guys who cannot resist the temptation. Can we blame them?
You do not really know how to feel about it, especially when you prefer people not to touch your hair. But then again he is that special someone!
- “Oh he loves my hair, how sweet!”
He comments several times that he likes your hair. He will not say it too often; he does not want to make you think that he has a ‘curl-fetish’. You are starting to reach cloud nine!
He does not want to make you think that he has a ‘curl-fetish’.
So what is the point of this article? Many naturals often do not know what their date thinks of their hair. Especially, when it is someone from a different ethnical background. Remember that you are gorgeous. Besides, your hair is only one of your unique characteristics. There is really one thing you should bring: Your smile!
At the end, you would not be dating if you are not sure about each others appearance.
