Not rhetorical:

Is it weird that I (a white woman) watch hair tutorials for kinky/4C/[unsure of correct umbrella term] hair?

I don't really watch any makeup or hair tutorials to actually do the stuff in them, I just find it nice to watch someone femme do their hair/makeup magic and listen to them chat about stuff. (Plus, some of it is "research" to inform my writing of future characters with that kind of hair texture.)

@saffron Sounds like genuine interest and good well intended research to me. Better yet would be to go to such a speciality hair salon and make friends while you observe. 😁
