Every black girl’s introduction to “Beauty is Pain”. My mama started this shit with me at age 2!
“quit jumping! thats just the grease popping.”
Jesus Lord. We have two of these in the house. I have no idea which was worse: the electric or the stove top one.
Stove top is definitely worse. it’s a crap ton scarier then the electric. That thing looks like it’s touched a lot ears over the years.
THIS is what fucked up my curl pattern. I bet I’d have to shave my entire head if I want to get it back. I’ll just stick with wavy, but this shit was not ok. You smelled like smoke for a day and a half.
I want my curls back, thats all i have to say
I’m cringing just seeing that. UGH.
Good times, Good times.
Yup. Last time I had my hair straightened was with a hot comb (stove top, of course, since electric don’t work as well). I was 15. I’ll be 24 in November. Yeah……
my grandma still got one of these, but we used it so much that two of the prongs bent. Last time I used this was about a few months ago. A lot better than a flat iron, but damn it hurts when you get nicked.
My grandma always use to blow on it like her 98.6 degree breath was gonna make it any cooler -_-
LMAO grease, newspaper, and dat comb.
and if i ever hear “girl, that’s just steam” again, i’m gonna cry.
All of these comments have me literally ROTFLOL!!!
how about my mom sat that joint on top of my head while she was on the phone, and then her ass looked at me like WTF you jumping for, i only sat it on your head you ain’t on fire yet
Had the whole kitchen smelling like hair, bacon, and Pink Lotion
My coworkers are insane. My mom is in town this weekend. I told them that I dropped her off at a nearby Starbucks so that she could enjoy a peaceful morning ALONE reading her Jet magazines. 45min later I get an email titled “Meeting my mother in-law” with this picture attached.
