Talking Reactions from friends/family about your transition

Hi everyone!

I'm still early in my transition. I've been relaxer and flat-iron free since July! I have about 4 inches of new growth and my permed hair hangs to my collarbone.
I just wanted to know what were some of the reactions you got from friends, family, coworkers, your signifcant other, etc... when you told them you were trying to transition from relaxed to natural hair?
Where I'm from, having a relaxer or weave is the only thing that is the norm. Here are some of the things that were said to me:

Mom: You're not getting perms anymore? So... I mean... what are you gonna do with your hair then?

Boyfriend: O lord, don't tell me you're trying to be one of those knotty-head girls.

Supervisor: What do you want to do that crazy **** for?


LOL... What are some of the reactions you got?
