All my life, I've heard crap like:

"Is that a wig?" (It is not)
"Is that your REAL hair?" (It is)
"It must take you a really long time to do your hair every day!" (It does not)
"That's some seriously big hair" (It's curly, I can't help the volume!)

People are such jerks.

"it looks like straw!"
took me ages to to like my hair n accept it...... only when i discovered this site, earlyer this year i started looking after my hair n seeing its true beauty

my hair: 3c, high porosity, high density and coarse hair (i think i finally figured that all out)
my hair loves conditioner only styling!
my hair goal length is bra strap length when curly.
