1. You stayed in the salon for 5 or more HOURS!!!! 2 of which was under the da** dryer!

3. You beat your head like you retarded ‘cause you waiting for a perm and don’t wanna scratch…
4. In 1996 you used gel (and a toothbrush) to revive your “baby hair” (some don’t think that’s funny cuz they STILL DO IT!)
5. You let your mama, cousin, or somebody cut your bang and it wasn’t str8 so you had to wear the swoop….
6. Or better yet you WORE THE SWOOP…every BLACK girl THOUGHT she was Aaliyah didn’t they??? The lil’ piece in her eye….

14. You did your OWN hair and just KNEW it was cute…until you flipped thru some photo albums 5 years later and wondered WHAT WAS I THINKIN’!
