Did you just imply that I don't wash my hair?
I was so upset by this I just had to share with people who would get it. Sunday was one of my best friend's birthday and she had a little get together. There was this guy there whom I'd met only once or twice before. When one of my friends (not the birthday girl) brought up how my dreads where coming along he butt into the conversation with the following:"You don't wash your hair, right?"I was flabbergasted, do people seriously believe that shit? I shouldn't be surprised because he was pretty ignorant on various other subjects but are you seriously implying TO MY FACE that I don't wash my hair?I tried to educate him, explaining that no in fact clean hair dreads so much easier and faster than dirty hair ever could, and regardless of that, if I hadn't washed my hair for the past three months you would smell it, genius (believe me, that is not the case, my friends are not shy about this stuff. If my hair smelled, they would tell me lol) But he wasn't having it and said "No, that's how you get dreads, by not washing your hair."Well, thank you for educating me. not like I have dreads on my head RIGHT NOW. I was getting really irritated at this point and asked "Oh, and you've had dreads before, that's how you know this?" intending that if he said no I'd tell him he should keep his lack of knowledge to himself, and if he said yes I'd say "Well, that might be why you don't have them anymore."But what he actually said was "No, but my sister has."I admit my reaction was not the kindest, but I just said the first thing that came to my head which was "Well, your sister is a dirty bitch if she doesn't wash her hair." At this point the table erupted in laughter and several of my friends informed him that it's not the brightest idea of irritate me because there is no filter on my mouth.Anyway, I just thought I'd share. Has anyone else gotten this kind of reaction from people? And you can tell me if my response was a tad rude or strong lol.
