On me flat straight hair looks like crap. In general to me straight hair needs "help" to be interesting. It needs a great cut or some creativity with color or something. Most people I know with straight hair are always using products to spike or poof it up because otherwise they have what I call "there hair". It's there but you don't really notice anything in particular about it. Sometimes it's kind of stringy too. 99 percent of straight haired women who walk past me I never notice their hair. On the other hand my hair doesn't need any help getting noticed. People are obsessed with my hair. I get comments/questions about it all the time. I had to pull it in a pony tail yesterday at a concert because some guy friends of mine kept messing with and grabbing it. I was so frustrated I almost punched one of them.
Yes, it's real. No, you can't touch it.
