I get that a lot. I am. My mom is African American and my dad is Caucasian. People tell me I have "a black face with white skin", which makes no sense to me. I have my moms curly hair, but it's curly and fine and grows down, opposed to her beautiful hair that's all nice and tightly curled and black and just... I love it.
But people see me and they automatically ask me if I'm mixed. I'm not offended, but kinda confused. I didn't know it was obvious.
My hair is stubborn. What I thought would help me only resulted in horrible, damaged hair. Straightening my hair is now the only reasonable thing I can do. So, I am no longer CG. Not until my hair gets fixed.
Goal- Long, shiny locks! Currently shoulder length when curly. Goal is to reach around right below chest area. Wish me luck!
