Oh that's that green eyed monster called "Jealousy". NEVER allow ANYONE to make you doubt how fabulous you and your hair are! It doesn't matter what others think, it's about what YOU think and feel about YOU that matters. Honey, when they tell u that your hair looks better straight, you tell them: "my hair is GORGEOUS the way that it is, but thank you" turn that head so them curls can slap them in the eyes and walk away with your nose in the air. Do it and I promise the negative comments will stop. Been there, done that.
