I am black with 4a hair and when I became natural (almost 1 year ago), my husband told me he would be ashamed to introduce me to his friends. He did apologize immediately but it was too late. A lot of black men want their women with relaxed hair. I think this feeling may be more prominent among them than Caucasian men but I may be
wrong. Anyhow, what matters is to have enough self esteem to embark on this journey of natural/curly/kinky hair. Just yesterday though 2 of his friends told me now much they liked my hairdo right in front of him. He said nothing!
