As a junior in high school, I'm definitely no stranger to insults about my hair. I was another one of those who had boy-short hair in elementary school, and it didn't grow out gracefully, to say the least. I had so many insults about my hair in middle school. Now, I absolutely hate it when people tell me "you'd be so beautiful if you'd only straighten your hair!"
I'm a shoulder-length 3b/3c, very dark brown.
