Carmen I was the exact same as you. My ex boyfriend hated my curls when he found out about them. He also didn't allow me to dye my hair back to my natural color.. and made me keep bleaching it. can you say controlling? He's been in rehab twice and jail once since we broke up, so i can't say i let go of something too special. what a winner.
my boyfriend now also loves my hair. he says it makes me different. Its really awesome to have that happy ending feeling. I wouldn't wear my hair in the style someone else wanted me to ever again. i'm way too confident and independent for that stuff now
