#1: Old folks
Last year, I started to embrace my curls after the many years of getting my hair flat ironed. My family thinks straight hair is beautiful, while my siblings and I think natural hair is beautiful. Every time I wear my hair curly in front of my old family members, they always have something negative to say, and nobody seems to stand up for me when they do. It really hurts that as a 16 year old girl loving herself that some of her family don't support her natural hair journey.
