Well you've got lots of curly friends here, that's for sure! I do know what you mean, there aren't many textured haired people that I know of, but luckily I don't get many negative comments about my hair, it's more of a novelty to many people I know (your hair looks lovely in your siggie pic btw.) Don't let the 'knockers', get you down. You have a refreshing attitude in being who you want to be and not bowing to peer pressure and you've always got like minded people to relate to here who appreciate how lovely natural tresses are.

Best wishes.
