Oh, ladies, I've never had an experience with one of those erm, chicks with the fried and dyed weaves...until today. I swear, it's like meeting an alien: you've seen pictures, and you know it's there...but you ain't neva met one.

Welp, I was in the BSS picking up some silicon mix and some anti-poof stuff for my hair so it won't poof up in this stupid rain, cuz I'm wearing some of my stashed VC semi-straightened/wavy. I'm not a mean person, but this chick and her friend walked up to me with the most, erm interesting blending job ever. She told me I had beautiful hair, and first thing out of my mouth is "oh, this isn't all mine." She seemed nice, so we got into a mini-convo about my hair, like what kind it is, how long; etc etc. I'm used to people getting all "oh...what's virgin?", so I just told her it's remy hair and such.

So she asks me how did I blend my hair so well with my own hair, and I told her it doesn't exactly since my hair's much curlier, but I made sure I got something close to my texture. All was going well, until she asked if I thought it could work with her hair and I told her "Mm, maybe. I'd just suggest something coarser, more yaki-textured." Her whole face fell and her friend behind her got this look, and she's like "you tryin' to say my hair's nappy?! *&%^$#@E outta here!"

Poor girl was really mad, and like stormed away, calling me a "mixed bitch" and ranting loudly with her friend about how I "tried to call her out" but I'm just like Stern%20SmileErmmWacko is it really that serious? You rather delude yourself into thinking that it would blend seamlessly without any sort of work or products and that I'm being some sort of texture elitist than just picking up some yaki and calling it a day? People....

Philly. And it's a "whatever, that's life" kind of situation to me, but I didn't think the words yaki-texture would offend someone. Most people in the store were looking at them crazy anyways and the owners see my face all the time, so they were like Shocked

That's too bad, but it sounds like you handled it as gracefully as you could.
