OMG! I have curly hair and am Indian!! My dad's side has curly hair so I get it from them...my mom is so annoying always telling me to comb my hair saying I have knots etc when my hair is just fine. I love my curly hair. I remember once instead of trying to deal with my curly hair they just took me to get my hair cut, funny thing is it got CURLIER ....I honestly love my curly hair but as I said it's really hurtful when your own mother tells you it looks bad. I think it looks beautiful and that's all that matters, really.
