I totally understand. For the longest time i straightened my hair every day and all she said was "why don't you just wear your hair curly sometimes its looks so much prettier?" so im like ughh okay. so once i started doing that all she ever says is why don't you straighten your hair, you don't even have curly hair you just blow dry it that way. and proceeds to tell me i'm faking my curlieness. sigh...

it sounds like a good idea though to just tell her to support me, and stop criticizing me without starting a fight.
