My mom was an extreme opposite. Straightening my hair was expressly forbidden, and in my life it's only ever been flat ironed once. It was a weird experience XP And when I was in middle school I went through a huge tomboy phase and always wore my hair in a ponytail, and this drove my mom insane, she always insisted I wore it down.

Now I always wear my hair down XD And straightening is still pretty much forbidden.
