It's funny, I do not get as many compliments now that my hair is starting to mature. When it was in what I thought were the ugly stage, many people complimented me often. So, I guess it wasn't as ugly as I thought. One time, I had an Asian lady ask me where I bought my hair from. I explained that it was my own hair and she asked if she could touch it. I let her and she thought it was beautiful and the coolest hair she had ever seen. It's funny that often times, my concern was with what I thought other races would think of my hair (for work purposes). The truth is, I have received more support and compliment from races other than my own. (But that could be just because I live in Hawaii and there aren't many of us here:D). No matter what others think, I absolutely LOVE my hair.

I started my locks with small braids. So the best compliments I get is when I get asked one of two questions: "Who does your sisterlocks?" and "How much did you pay for your sisterlocks?"

For someone to look at my braidlocks that I installed myself and positively compare them to sisterlocks, which is a technique takes hours to learn and perfect, is a WONDERFUL compliment for me.

Last Summer a lady actually follow me from the gas station to McDonalds just to ask me where I got my sisterlocks done.

I received two compliments this past weekend. I was getting my morning dose from Starbucks and the girl who waited on me said that my hair was beautiful. You should have seen the smile considering that I hadn't had my coffee yet! I was in the grocery store and the cashier, who was Caucasian, said that my hair was really cute. Both compliments made me feel really good!

Wow Ladies those are some great compliments. Definitely can put a smile on a girls face. Isn't it ironic that verbal compliments come from other races. Although we know our 'sistas' like it they dont' verbally show it, they just watch and stare. This topic actually goes so much deeper than hair, so I will save that for another time, another day, mabye even a new blog. In any event, thanks for sharing!

An older white lady in the building that my mother lives in said to she loved my hair and that my curls were cute. Now my hair was not curled but so I guess my straight locs looked like small shirley temple curls to her. An older black lady at Home Depot said she loved my hair. Both compliments came last week. They were a surprise to me since generally older people, white or black tend not to like natural textured Afro hair.

These locs have been mistaken for Sisterlocks as well.

The compliment I hear most often is "Your hair is beautiful." The first time I heard this, I did a doubletake to make sure it was I who was being spoken to :)...I'm used to the compliments now. Just last week a guy said he loved the look and appreciated the natural styles my friends and I had (3 of us....all natural....three different looks)

@msfullroller - your locks look great and any compliment feels great. Maybe the 'sistas' in the tri-state just aren't that complimentary. I can't lie I'm not that friendly in public either :-)

@Bee - Lol - doing a doubletake! That was probably a great sight 3 naturals with different looks.

It's a strange compliment but one none the less. "Is that your hair? It's so thick and pretty. It looks like a wig. I like the way you style it. I've never seen styles like that with locks. You have so much hair on your head"

"You are for real locked, the only thing I have seen people do is wear them down or in a pony tail. You are creative with yours."
