Hi, I'm new!

My hair is naturally black and I have always loved red hair, especially curly red hair! I had a few best friends while growing up who were redheaded. Even as a child I never felt weird around them or obligated to tease them, just absolute adoration of how lovely their hair was. Someone in here commented about how people wanting to touch her red hair was creepy; I understand where you're coming from (my hair has a strange texture so in high school everyone had to touch it. everyone.) but really it's only because they think your hair is gorgeous!

It's awful that for whatever reason most children with red hair, or any distinguishing feature, grow up being teased. I bet those little girls are just mean-spirited and jealous; I hope they are reprimanded for their behavior before some other girl has to deal with it. Sorry if this was a long post!
