When my boyfriend and I first started dating I wore my hair straight once on a date. A few months later he commented and said..."I really miss your straight hair...it looks so great like that"
so...I started straightening it all the time. Forward three years, and it was getting so fried looking to me....so I finally started getting mad about it and said...that's it! I can't do this anymore, look what you've done to my hair! (hahaa, had to throw a little guilt trip in there) Started wearing it natural again but felt REALLY self concious about it at first. I just knew in his head he was thinking I look hideous or something...(although he never said that) And now he says...he's really starting to love it curly.
But those thoughts still creep up sometimes.
Amazing what one word from another person can do to harm a curly psyche.
