Well, there are men - of all ages - and there are boys - of all ages. A man - who loves his woman - does not make her feel bad about herself. And certainly not over her hair, for heaven's sake. Maybe some people have not experienced suffering and tragedy in their lives. It kind of puts in perspective what is really important. If the OP's b/f dislikes her hair that much, he should find a barbie doll with straight hair. Her hair is part of who she is.
