Noppeeee. Lol. But then again I don't wear my hair out. So I don't know what people would say. I have gotten " have waves" from my own family + my then boyfriend. I think people want to touch my hair when I have it in a ponytail because they don't think the waves are real, they try to do it on the sly...lmao. But I'm mixed but not in the traditional sense. I'm a teeny bit of everything, I'm still learning my family heritage through research.
