Default Everyone tells me I look better with straight


I have always straightened my hair - just because I grew up being taught that straight = pretty.

Recently, I started my wearing my hair curly. And everyone, guys and girls alike, tells me I look better with straight and should go back. Now I feel unattractive with curly. What should I do?

Please help.

Do you care about pleasing others or pleasing yourself? It's up to you. There isn't really a right or wrong answer here. Natural hair isn't for everyone. Do what makes you happy.

Sometimes it takes a while for people to get used to a new look. Its different and people are just not used to it yet. Give it some time for people to adjust to your new look. Either they will eventually get used to it and accept you for how you are, or you will realize that making yourself happy is far more important than making others happy, even if it is over something as simple as hair.

The guys I am attracted to seem to always tell me my hair looks awesome straight. The guys that are just friends, and ALL of my girlfriends LOVE my curly hair. I love my curly hair. And so I don't give a hoot what anyone else thinks. I think you should do what makes you feel comfortable, and if you don't feel right in your curly hair, then don't wear it that way! Personally, it took me two years to consistently do my natural hair, and I still straighten it about 2 times a month. Mix it up! Be yourself, people like you for you, and not for your hair. And if that's not the case, then lose 'em!!
