Whenever I straighten my hair, people are so excited and I get multiple comments like "your straight hair is so beautiful!" "You should straighten it more!". Even when it's curly, people in high school used to tell me all the time if I ever thought about relaxing it.

Just last week, a guy "friend" saw me when I straightened my hair for the first time in a year and exclaimed "finally you permed it, it looks so much better!" He tried to call it a joke, but def wasn't.

Sad that our society equates beauty to straight hair. No wonder there are so many girls afraid to go natural and embrace the hair they were given.
