After I spent an hour brushing and blowdrying my hair straight:

Casual Friend: "Oh, it looks so much less MESSY that way, you should do it all the time!"

I know she wasn't trying to be hurtful, but its the comments like those that have encouraged me to hate my hair and fry it to death.
Former CG then modified CG, now too lazy :P Type 2B/3A (I think...) and still rather annoyed with my hair :P
