Dry Hair Battle

Me and my eSis NaturallyAlise engage in a heated hair battle on a regular basis. Actually, daily. It started one day when I called her afro crunchy, and it hasn’t ended since. Below is a battle we had on Twitter today (which we are HOOKED on. I’m @LuvvieIg and she is @NaturallyAlise). Cool Kids now e-loiter on Twitter.

Anyway, after reading it, leave a comment on who you think won this epic hair battle. My comments are in red and Alise’s are in black.

Luvvie – I stan for Carol’s Daughter stuff. Have their whole hair line. I also use some oyin handmade stuff. Keeps my fro juicy, unlike Alise’s tumbleweed arid hairhat. Hehe CHALLONJ!

Alise – Don’t trust Luvvie, her fro is rough and torrid. Pine straw abounds on her scalp.

Luvvie – I know you ain’t talking with your cacti-like parched follicles. Ol’ crusty dusty head self. Looffff uuuu!!!

Alise – your tresses are droughty and anhydrous

Luvvie – Your follicles are unemollient and are in a severe moisture famine

Alise – Your hairhat needs electrolytes.

Luvvie – Yourr hairhat is dehydrated. That mug needs an IV

Alise – Your loofah head is Vitamin GM deficient (Glover’s Mane)

Luvvie – Your dried up follicles are not letting your SoulGlo. Ol’ sapless upper regioned face

Alise – If hair was a plum, yours would be a prune…. dry and aesthetically displeasing

Luvvie – If hair was a cucumber, yours would be a pickle. All wrinkled and sour looking. Ur ‘fro is scary me. Ol’ awkward follicles

Alise – Your fro is an abomination and needs to be exorcised.

Luvvie – Your ‘fro needs to be guillotined. Ol’ headless horseman face. Let them eat cake AFTER they moisturize their situation.

Alise – If our hair was a rap battle I would be Nasir Jones circa Illmatic and you would be Plies circa yesterday

Luvvie – If your hair was a symbol of Black history, it’d be T-Pain, aka the Coon of Coloreds Present

Alise – Do you use your hairhat fro as a nail file?

Luvvie – BWAHAHA Ok that made me cackle. Do you use ur dehydrated fro to scrub those stubborn pot stains? Get thee behind me, GREASE!

So… WHO’s SOUL GLO’ed the best? Or are we both so foolish, we both lost? lol

    “Ol’ sapless upper regioned face”

    Uh okay so the hair needing an IV had be laughing, but then ole girl killed it with the prune comment. Then her victory was solidified when you tried to use her ingenious and make it your own with the pickle comment. It would have given you the win if you said it first, but instead ended up giving her props bc you remixed her original. So yeah…gotta give it to your girl on this one.

    I love you though (and your niece)

    I actually loved this as I saw it unfurl live on Twitter, it is where the cool kids chill.

    I attacked this in the way I read my students papers so I actually graded your insults

    Here is how I created my rubric
    1 point for the insult
    2 points for creativity
    2 points for LOL
    5 points for LMAO
    10 points for ROTFL

    I noticed that Alise had only 8 to Luvvie’s 9, but nonetheless Alise killed it several of her comebacks were severe causing me to LMAO and ROTFL (Hairhat as a Nail file, caused me to go into a coma).

    Luvvie 37
    Alise 57
