Hi all. This is my first time on these boards and I love reading what people have to say. Can curly heared people be considered a sub-culture?

Anyway, when I was in middle school, people called me "afro" because I had curly hair and unfortunate hair cuts. I am 31 now and I have started embracing my hair in the last few years. I never used to like anyone to touch my head because I hated how dry and yucky my hair felt. Now that I found better hair products, I don't care any more.

Last year for halloween, I dressed up like a tree and put fake birds in my hair. After all the years of having hair like a "bird's nest" I decided to make fun of it. Everyone thought it was great.
