My mom has issues with her own hair. She's Irish-American, and looking at pictures of her when she was a teen, she had beautiful, red ringlets. Just gorgeous. She looked like a milkmaid or something haha. But now she just wears it straight, and it's so boring and she picks at her split ends and whenever I mention that she should wear it natural, she gets irritated with me.

I am mixed, my father is Somali+Indian...and my hair is super curly. She loves my curly hair, but hates hers. It makes me sad for her sometimes.
