For the most part, I don't ever recall my parents saying anything negative about my hair. When I was little, my mom would always put my hair in a ponytail because that was the only way she knew how to style my hair. Her hair is super curly, but now she keeps it extremely short. I wish she would let it grow out. In her graduation portrait she had somewhat of a fro. And it looked really good on her. I have another picture when she was like 13 and her hair has a wave to it. It's also big in that picture too. I think she tried to iron it that time. she was told a lot that she had "black people hair". And I was always told the same thing growing up, that my hair was "kinky like black hair".

I'd like to add that my family is white (I know a lot of us put a certain hair type with a certain color, but it's not always true. ).
