All of my friends either have straight hair or curly hair that they relax. The ones with relaxed hair regularly compliment my hair, but they wont stop relaxing. One of them tried and she relaxed again after about 2 months. I plan on being natural and letting my hair grow as long as it will. I get a lot of the 'you should straighten your hair' comments too. On one occasion it came from a coworker that I dont like and my response was 'nah, im not insecure about the natural state of my hair so I dont need to' Not saying that every curly who straightens, relaxes, or does keratin is insecure, but this particular person is.

Teri Laflesh's book "Curly Like Me" sits on my desk and everytime I get frustrated and an impulse tells me to shave my head, I look at it in hopes that one day my hair will graze the top of my butt.
