Me too I got no curly friends. Everyone at school has straight hair. Some even tell me to straighten mine and I'm just annoyed on the inside.

I just read recently that combing curly hair is bad (I always comb my hair because I'm taught to, you know, I live in a straight-haired-people place). So I tried it and I like my hair. My friends were like "omg did you just perm your hair?" I was about to get happy and take it as a compliment but they laughed and chanted "curly curly curly..." I always knew curly hair wasn't too appreciated here.
