Default Ugh

I just got reallly mad at my mom and aunt cus they want me to relax my hair. My cousin that was natural for 3 years relaxed today and now they think i'm going to want to do the same. I told them how I want to wear my natural hair, and my aunt said "but you're going to college next year so you have to look pretty!" I got offended. As if my 3c curls are ugly or something? God gave me this hair and I'm not gonna ruin it with relaxers to please anyone.

Good for you! A lot of people would give in if their families wanted them to relax, stay strong!

I'm experiencing them same thing. My mom is against natural hair she says it's not "decent" looking which is stupid. She gets upset when I tell her I don't want a relaxer. But w/e I'm 22 and frankly, it's my hair and I don't give a damn. I do what I want with it. Just stay positive and look at what you'll be gaining in the long run by transitioning.

Dont worry. My family is not trying to get me to relax they just want it straight. But im only going to straighten when i want to which may be like 3x a year. Ive worn natural hair in the office and everywhere. It is pretty. Not knocking relaxers but we just dont want them. You stay relaxed, ill stay curly. Agree to disagree. Thats what u should say the next time they want u to relax

And for the relaxed people who go around telling naturals, "you need a relaxer" just tell them nope, i will still be alive tommorrow. Needs are stuff like food, water, shelter, companionship, etc lol
