For a start, I think he is allowed to have his preferences. However, I am not sure why he told you. Did it come up in conversation, did you ask him or did he just tell you?

Secondly, I don't think you're overreacting. It can be hurtful when people don't accept your hair, especially with so much negative messages all around about our curls. I love my hair and I still suffer from it sometimes. A guy I am 'seeing' preferred straight hair before (but now likes my curly hair, just prefers the length from my straight hair - fair enough. I like length too, and length looks better on me), and it hurt a bit.

Remember, he is allowed to have his preferences, but you're allowed to feel hurt or insecure.
