  • I Know This Is So Mean ...

     

    but I love seeing permies run like when it's raining outside. It's drizzling this am were I'm at, and boy did I see all these women breaking neck to get out of the rain. One women almost fall on top of this other women trying not to get that hair wet. Oh boy that was too funny.

    When I finally got inside (I was striding with pleasuring) they said "girl it's raining outside". I was like yeah I know!

    At least no one got hurt. I can't imagine having to explain that I broke my ankle ruuning from the rain so I wouln't get my fresh touchup/wrap set wet.

    Yeah know one was hurt, IA can you see yourself in the emergency room explaining to doctor. I broke my angle because I didn't want my hair to get wet and frizz up.

    Yeah I can understand that, but these women were running because they went to hair salon yesterday to get a touch up and didn't want their hair to nap up (as one women said ) and the other didn't want to lose them curls.

    I love that I never have to run now when it's raining. I remember those days, standing there for 20 minutes under a store awning until the rain stopped. Like a damn nasty cat

    You know, one of the things that got me hooked to natural hair, besides the beauty of it, was the freedom it brings. No longer seeing water as the enemy...no longer avoiding the rain...no longer despising swimming (even though I still don't know how to swim ^_^)...and seeing how wonderfully my hair responds to water (it literally looks like its thanking me!) made me instantly attached to natural hair.

    Everytime I hear a woman say that relaxing is an easier option and then see that same woman scrambling to dodge raindrops, I shake my head. But, hey, I was there once too.

    Yep, that's mean, but I'm with you. I don't see it because of where I am. However, I love it when it rains and I just keep walking with a steady stride.

    I'm also thankful for not being scared of water balloon fights in the summertime.

    I too admit to enjoying a bit of a giggle (not out loud...really) when I see sisters running from the rain and/or putting plastic bags on their heads from the local Walgreens or WalMart.

    What makes me stop giggling is when they claim that "this is what black women have to DO" and then look at me like I have a problem. I believe this is one of the few instances in which it's possible to be "too black" and "not black enough" at the same time. <_<

    Good one, I needed that laugh!!!

    I am on the phone with my permie friend and I just asked her does she break her neck to get inside when it's raining and she responded, " How bad is it raining? Do I have anything to put over my head? Did I just get my hair done? " LMAO...she had me almost in tears...then I told her about this topic...and told her Water is not the enemy

    LOL that is so true. the other day I was on a construction site and it started to drizzle a bit. All the other workers expected me to run for the nearest shelter as that is what they usually s e women doing. In my head I was thinking "Good!!! these braids could do with some rehydration"....It's great being a nappy

    Thanks for the Laugh! I remember I use to be one of the sprinters..LOL

    That's weird because i have the feeling that i am the only natural who still own an umbrella and still doesn't stay under the rain.
    Why?
    Because my hair shrinks a lot with the rain and everybody knows that i don't like shrinkage
    So water is my friend only for the shampoos
    Still not singing in the rain but running...

    when i had a perm, i never ran from the rain due to my hair. but then again i alway wore my hair in a ponytail and didnt care if it frizzed or napped up cause , hey i got nappy hair. women always be like, "girl, your hair is gonna turn back." in my mind, it didnt matter cause i got nappy hair and my attitude was "oh well".

    but yes, ive seen women scatter like roaches. it still confuses me.

    LMAO!! I'm embarrassed that I used to be one of those nuts with a grocery bag over my head trying to run in heels when it drizzled... :P
    ...

    ITA. I especially hate it when I hear their explanation to non-Blacks about how caring for "Black" hair is so difficult and what a hassle it is if it gets wet. As if this is the case for all Black women. <_<

    Why?Because my hair shrinks a lot with the rain and...

    Yeah, I would have to agree. I have shrinkage like a mug. I like for my hairstyle to stay the same as I left the house. Plus, the rain makes my hair hard and brittle. So yeah, I run from the rain also.

    I quess I have should've thought cafefully when I posted this thread. I agree that sometimes "we" might want to keep the hairdo looking fresh as ever, due to shrinkage. But these permies may have spent about $60-$150 on their hair and a good rainy day could wash that money right down the drain. Whereas our natural do doesn't cost us (well most of us) much to go back in the house to reado the hair over for little to nothing.

    My thing that cracked me up was this past winter because it was my first winter as a natural and so I'm walking into class with my twists and I look and all the other black women in the class either have their hair wrapped or thrown into a hideous ponytail. I was definitely smiling inside
