"SOS", "Brillo Pad", "********", "Medusa", I've heard them all. Of course, the "well meaning" friends that try to do my hair then give up when they realize it's not so easy.
My Army roommate would say "I've never seen a white girl with hair like that" When I was 14, a boy I had a crush on asked me "How can you stand to have hair like that?" As if I have a choice?? That one stung! 20 years later, people are envious of my curls, even though I'm still having trouble learning to like them myself.
