I feel very lucky then- a lot of the Jewish girls at my school wore their curls with pride and love. So, my hair wasn't all that unusual. I got most of the flack from my mom's friends and people here on the east coast when I moved here.

It's so sad. It's HAIR. It was put there without anyone's opinion in the matter and how it grows out of your head should be a moot point.
