My mom will never drop-it, will she?

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.
It really does suck when your mom gives you crap about something like that. My mother used to call me Roseanne Roseanna Danna because of my hair. To be fair, at the time, that's exactly what it looked like. She never really gave me any trouble for my hair being curly but if it looked bad, she'd let me know. which was fine because it usually did look bad when she said something. Perhaps a lesson in genetics is in order for your mom. It's really more her fault your hair is curly than yours.

However, with all that being said I will say this. My mom died seven years ago. I'd gladly take the Roseanne Roseanna Danna comments every single day if it meant I could have her back. Let the comments go. There are way more important things in life. Don't spend the time you have with your mom arguing over something as trivial as how you wear your hair. Let her say what she needs to and let it go.
My mom is exactly the oposite. One day (a long time ago) she heard me complain about my curls and she said "You have no idea how lucky you are. People pay hundreds and hundreds of dolars to try to make thir hair do what your hair does naturally"

And curls have nothing to do with being single. guys are always touching my hair. They love it. Ever since I was little guys have just walked up behind me to "doink" a curl.

Something that I find that works with other girls who are critical about my hair is the "I feel. . . about. . . because" method For example

"I feel sad/offended/upset when you critisize my curls because it has taken me a long to time to love my curls this much, and I don't want to start hating them again."

Try not to use the words angry, mad, or other extremely negative emotions because then they get defensive and there's no hope then.
