One of my biggest issues is the media. Everytime I pick up a magazine or see a segment on a TV show about "how to manage your curls" the answer is always to straighten them! It's insulting. This goes along with what everyone else has said about the mainstream media pushing straight hair as the only acceptable option. Just once I'd like to read an article on how to manage curly hair that actually tells me how to manage curly hair not how to make curly hair straight. I'm pretty sure we ALL know how to make it straight! We've spent years doing it!
