im not sure how to advise you on the situation with your parents, (but i understand the frustration when you cant get someone to believe brushing curls is so wrong, although my family like my hair, for a while my nan did not understand that brushing curly hair turns it into a mess) i just thought i should say id absolutely love 2b curls. you could say something like the first time ive felt happy with my hair and you try and take it away from me, something along the lines of as parents youre supposed to be teaching me to accept myself, but instead youre trying to get me to believe my hair is a tangled mess and turn it into something its not...i know its hard to try and tell things to parents who dont seem to listen though
