Teri's story on whether men prefer curly or straight hair reminded me of an experience that happened to me in college. I was so sure that men preferred straight hair, that I decided to get mine chemically straightened. I could tell mid-way through that something was wrong. The stylist had a scared look on his face, and then said he wasn't going to charge me for it - obviously not a good sign. As I was working out at the gym, I noticed big hunks of hair dropping to the floor. After washing my hair in the shower, it was clear that I had received a chemical haircut. I looked like I had mange. My hair was broken off in huge sections. My boyfriend told me my forehead looked like it had grown. The bottom line. Men don't necessarily prefer hair curly or straight. They just prefer that you have hair. To read Teri's original story click here.
