Whats your Reaction when see another Natural Sis?

Post by slimwithabs on 2nd March 2011, 4:59 pm

[b] Good Afternoon Guys.

What is yr reaction when you see another Natural Sis or Bro rocking Natural Styles i.e. twist, twist out? Do U look, Say something, or just keep walking? Well today when I went out to lunch I pass a Sis with TWA we staired at each other and just before I was going to say Wow, loving yr hair she had gone. I guess she was in a hurry. I usually get a good feeling when I see another rocking Natural style and must talk to them about it. I'm loving how we are all coming 2gether.

I usually stare for a minute to see if they are approachable. Then I may walk over and spark a conversation. Usually I ask their regimen, and it goes from there. You are right most women I meet are so friendly, and they give tons of advice. I usually have a hat on, so I take it off to show them that I am in the club. LOL

@ slimwithabs - my reaction when I see another natural? I give a smile if they're approachable and in my mind I'm like Okkkk Girl!!!

I have approached or been approached many naturals lately and I think its pretty cool. Just a few weeks ago I had a long conversation with a woman in the post office about natural hair. We discussed oils and conditioners that we tend to like or dislike.

I just seen another natural in Trader Joe's an hour ago stocking her basket with sesame oil and olive oil. I wanted to ask her so bad if that was for her hair but she didn't seem too approachable to me lol. .

Everytime I see a "twin" I cant help but to compliment on their style! I have only encoutered 1 young lady that was kind of stand offish (dont really blame her though)....I was just 1 1/2 month past b/c and my "MOM" was like a crazy person. It was ackward, I think we both felt like my mom was trying to set us up for a play group (lol).

When I see a natural whose hair looks good I'll say something. I'll usually give them a compliment, ask them what they used to acheive the look, and/or ask where they got it done. Now, when I see a natural whose hair doesn't look good, I don't say anything. I just can't give out fake compliments. I will smile and keep it moving.

i'm with craving curlz. lol. but to a less extent...

--> i smile & try to keep it moving (i'm usually on my way to/from work) and keep saying in my head "don't stare @ her beautiful curls, don't stare!"

now if someone wants to talk hair & they give me the slightest "in" to a conversation, then its on & poppin!

If I see another natural, I typically always give a comment, like "Girl, you're rocking that TWA" or "I love those coils". Just something to acknowledge that I see them and let them know that they are looking good. It always lifts my spirits when a random person approaches me about my hair.

First off, i usually have to contain myself not to jump up and down and start screaming.... EVERYTIME i see a natural!!! (weird, i know)...
But let me tell ya! i have seen some bad a$$ naturals and i couldn't help myself...lmao!

If they're rocking a nice style...i do tell them that i love their hair...I don't usually ask them questions unless they start a hair related conversation...

But it always makes my day wether i say something or not...

I usually just stare Shocked for a while and smile to myself lol. I haven't seen too many yet. I did appreciate the compliments I received when I first BC'd and the compliments I still get on m twa though. Mostly from women who are scared to go natural and want to know how long I have been and what I use. This always leads to a good convo and I encourage them to join the club Very Happy . When out and about though and when my twa is on point cheers out of my side eye I see many people staring lol!
