I'm a rising sophomore and I feel like everyone wants to blend in with each other, stick straight hair included. I used to feel very frustrated over my big hair, and the people I was closer to said that my hair was pretty but that they could not handle wearing it themselves. Those who aren't as close to me think that I'm crazy and that I should just wear it straight. They also pick on me because my hair is so much bigger than theirs. I personally think I look awful with straight hair so I just don't care about what they say.
But I definitely think that many people don't appreciate curly hair. Especially the boys, who think that my hair comes from outer space.
