Thank you all for your wonder suggestions and kind words. My mother just thinks I should do it to make him happy-she doesn't see what the big deal is. I love my curls. They are not uncontrollably big or frizzy or unkempt, they are shiny and soft and healthy and most importantly they're me. I don't know what he has against my hair but my extended family (who I will see on Christmas) LOVES my natural hair and they like that I wear it curly. It's not that I don't want to make him (and my mother) happy-I just don't want to compromise my happiness and self esteem in order to please other people, including my family.
