I usually only like straight hair based on how long/short my hair is... When my hair was shorter, around chin-length, I wanted to wear straight hair a lot. It's mainly because even with a medium sized afro I just didn't like having to worry about fitting headgear getting it caught in seatbelts/necklaces or dogtags or velcro...Now that I can pull it back I only want to see it straight maybe every 2 months or so.
