This was from a girl with dreads....yes.

I also get asked how I comb my hair and if I just sleep on my hair instead of a pillow. People also always assume that I want straight hair.
The first is just plain ignorant.

Your hair is so CUTE! How could anyone think you would want it straight? Dumb, dumb, dumb.
aw, thank you!

I don't really get why some people go out of their way to tell curlies to straighten their hair. Do they want everyone to conform? I don't know but I think the idea is that straight hair is "normal" hair. When I told one guy that I like my hair curly he suggested to straighten it permanently and then curl it with a curling iron every day.... I can't even try to understand the logic behind this.
