Do you think women with type 4b/4c hair(that isn't long) tend to have an attitude?

I'm specifically speaking about BLACK AMERICAN WOMEN UNDER THE AGE OF 40 with this type of hair. (i'm black american too btw)

Now I have this hair texture, and it is long. But from my personal experiences I've only met a few young natural sistas with my hair texture that didn't have an attitude. I've noticed that this new trend of naturals seem to be doing it as a "fad" or "trend" or because they have no other choice(chemical damage or weave damage). They don't seem to embrace their hair the way the older black sistas do.
And when I say attitude, I mean the attitude of 'low self esteem" or jealous of every female that walks by or complaining about a sista having a weave or relaxed hair (as if she wished she had it).

I mean it's ridiculous. At first I was happy about the new movement, but these young women are not sincere to me at all. I love my 4b/4c natural hair, been natural for over a decade and yes(before the fad) i was teased as a kid(I was an 80s kid teased usually by other girls in high school and junior high because I had longer hair so I assume it was jealousy) about it and didn't care. Now that it seems to be a "fad" these girls seem to not really be sincere about embracing their natural hair. Honestly I think many are going natural just to see if their hair is not a 4b/4c texture.

It's really sad so much hatred among black americans (this includes Caribbeans, south american continent, and the continent of north america), I know it's due to white supremacy, but one way to start combating that mentality is to start with the children.
I have not noticed any attitude from 4bc. Usually my encounters with women with natural hair is generally positive. The nasty looks I get sometimes are from women wearing sewins especially in the bss. But since I stopped going to the black and asian owned bss and stick to Sally's it's not as much because they don't sell as much hair.where black and asian owned hair is like 90% of the inventory. the staff at a few of these stores were rude or not helpful I think because natural hair is not their cash cow.

I have been natural 7 years so no fad here. In high school my hair wasn't very long but a lot of the girls were crazy jealous of me. I hated hs. I refuse to go to any reunions.
Yes, it's real. No, you can't touch it.

In the past I was the only one natural in some cases before the "movement". I can't judge between the naturals and non-naturals because of that. And I did say I was teased in the past.

My teasing was past too.I was teased a lot about my hair in high school and I wasn't natural. I didn't know how to care for it plus I now know my hair hates chemicals. . People talked all kinds of trash about my hair to my face and behind my back. A boy would sing the Just For Me song to me. I was told to go to some salon. Someone came back and told me a so called friend had told people she wouldn't vote for me for student council because I was nappy headed. They were mostly some hateful sobs which is why to this stay I don't f with most of them.

She had the nerve to think she was complimenting me by saying "you have such good hair why don't you relax it." And this was a GROWN WOMAN saying this, mind you i was a pre-teen at the time so yea...So the kids were getting it from somewhere

wow kids can be so cruel! Thats life I guess. I too rmr in grade school when the girls would call my new growth "buck shots" and " biddy b's" (i had a prem at the time but my new growth would kink up so tightly).

Ive never experienced negativity with the new movement, at least not from a fellow natural. I will say that Ive felt some shade from a few natural friends in which they hinted for me to cut my hair. I just assumed they were envious of my length. I dont want to cut my hair i will just keep growing out and trimming but not no big chop or anything like that. Ive had my hair short b4 back when it was relaxed. I dont mind a short styled wig or weave but I like my natural hair to be long. Everyone has what they like.

I dont know why some curlies or non curlies act so hateful and negative though. I love to see more natural hair, its just a beautiful movement and I hope not a fad.
when i used to wear my hair straight all the time i actually did notice an attitude from women with this type of hair very often, especially like at the store when the cashier is someone with type 4b/4c hair. however now that i wear my hair natural and curly it seems like these women are nicer to me and don't give an attitude lol
