: "You look good with straight hair."
I HATE WHEN PEOPLE SAY THAT.
I HATE IT I HATE IT I HATE IT.
I straightened my hair once last year for something different, but I really didn't think it looked that good and have decided not to do it much anymore, and ever since people will say offhand to me, "You looked really good with straight hair," or "You should straighten your hair again." Today someone even said to me "Straighten your hair." They don't understand why I get so offended.
But I take it very personally, and to me it implies that they don't think I look good with curly hair, which makes me mad. It's MY hair, this is how I CHOOSE to wear it, because it looks best ON ME. I feel like it was clear that my hair didn't look that good straightened; it wasn't convincing, it just looked fake and not like me. And yet, people are so conditioned by the media and by what the majority of people have that they all still believe that is beautiful. It's absurd. People don't use their eyes. Or their brains. I believe that I have curly hair for a reason, just like your eye color compliments your skin tone, my hair is supposed to flatter the shape of my face.
Does anyone feel the same way? I really just can't stand it!
