Honestly I love my curly hair now! I'm sixteen and for YEARS I hated my hair because I never knew how to manage it! There was a whole year that all I did was straighten it and maybe wore it curly once a semester. Boy did I under appreciate my hair!
And you know what? After years of my relatives telling me that they loved my curly hair and it fit my personality better I started accepting it and just let my hair be curly at the beginning of this past school year. And honestly? I love it SO much!
And it isn't necessarily that guys don't like curly hair. My boyfriend, for one, LOVES my curly hair. When I complain about it he goes on and on about how he'd rather see my hair curly and natural than straightened any day and I love it! It's all about finding the RIGHT guy!
