I have heard all of these; "you should carry a spray bottle everywhere because your hair is ugly dry" "your curls look so exotic... like a coconut " "why do you mean straightening drys out your hair? I do it everyday,your just dramatic " "you put oil in your hair? That's ****ing nasty eeewww" "just get a Japanese straightener thingy so you look normal" "I bet you curl your hair for attention " "no guy will date you with that hair" "have you tried not letting it be curly?" "Why don't you brush it straight? " "your hair is too big, it's not ladylike" and finally "curly hair causes cancer"
Have you gotten any ignorant / hateful comments?
Wow. Ppl can be soo ignorant. I've had girls call me poodle everytime it was humid outside & my hair got frizzy. But that was 8th grade & now im 20 & haven't heard anything negative since.

Curly hair causes cancer? Haha I've never heard that one before. Once I just scrunched my hair to go to class and one of my male friends looks at me and goes, "whoa! No wonder you straighten your hair!". People always seem to think curly hair is the result of not combing it, because people invariably tell me to "just comb it straight". Growing up in India, where everyone I knew had straight or barely wavy hair, was difficult. People had not seen curly hair often and I got called Maggi noodles ( popular brand of noodles in India), I could never find products that catered to my hair type. My mother used oil on my hair often, which definitely helped.
Once I had my hair curly and was in class, the guy behind me was like, "I bet you hate your hair huh?", no Sir, no I do not.

"How does it curl like that?" - Ask a scientist, not me.

"Is that a wig?" - Why... Too good to be true, or just unnatural? Either way, no.

"Ever try straighten it? I would love to see it straight!" - Well dream on because no.
I wouldn't call it stupid. I just think it was funny. Someone asked me "is that a rollerset?"I said no. Then they said "perm rods?" And I said no. Then they just looked at me so confused lol.

I've had people say my hair looks rough like horses hair, but those who have touched it know that is not the case haha
I've had girls ask me so many times how I get it to curl like that. There was this girl that asked that once, and I told her that I just put gel in there and hope for the best lol.. she asked me what kind, so her could be curly, too. Lol. Wow

A male colleague at my former job told me this before I went on my interview with my current employer. 12 years and 3 promotions later, I still wonder if I would have been hired if I hadn't taken his stupid words to heart and pulled my hair back into the tightest french twist known to mankind for my interview. On the bright side, when I showed up for my first day of work my interviewers almost didn't recognize me and commented on how nice my hair was.

The main thing that people say/ask me is "Is that your natural curl "? It's not stupid or bad, but its what I hear ALL the time. Is that what you all get asked a lot, too? I get asked that so much.

^ not a lot but sometimes. "Is that your real hair?" too. I answer, "yes, it's not a weave." and they look all flabbergasted.

Re: your post. Another answer I use is "yes. I wouldn't do this on purpose."
