I work as a cashier at Walgreens and I almost always wear my big wavy hair instead of straightening it. The other day this woman and her child were checking out and the little girl was staring at me. I thought she was looking at my nose ring or my gauges at first, then she shouts " YOUR HAIR LOOKS LIKE NOODLES!!!!" the mother told her she was rude but I think the little girl meant it as a compliment.
Anyway, have you had a child make a funny comment about your waves or curls? I think kids react to curly hair more often than straight hair.
