Well, I tend to ignore other's opinions about me...but for the most part, I get compliments on my hair almost everyday. Folks around here are pretty envious, and I love to see a curly head of any ethnicity! I love our hair, we are so beautiful!
I have gotten comments on my hair though, from stylists who have mostly straight hair clients. "Eww, your hair is so thick" (in number of starnds per inch and in diameter...) "wow, a white chick with a fro" (which I don't mind at all...)
"Hey! Come look at this girls hair!" Then they start to feel and POOF it like I am a dog.
I now have a stylist who knows how to cut my hair, although not how to style it.
I think we should start mocking the straight-heads. How Vanilla. How boooooring!
