Don't worry about what other people think. There are always going to be people who will find something – if not this, then something else. It's their problem, not yours.
I used to work with a person who, although neither she nor anyone else had ever seen me with straight hair (a certainty since my hair had never been straight in my life) made snarky comments to the effect that "everybody" knew my hair wasn't curly, I just wanted to think it was. But if not that, she'd pick on something or somebody else because the real problem was that her head was apparently so full of negativity that it just had to seep or spew out.
Fortunately, most people grow up.
