People don't always "get it"

All of my life I've had to deal with this thick mane of mine, and when I was younger,for some odd reason, I didn't want curls. This past November i cut my hair on my birthday. After about 10 straight years of having long, relaxed, hair down my back, it felt like the ultimate FREEDOM. But of course those people who are used to seeing my long straight hair, had there two cents to put in. "Why'd you cut? it" or "It was so pretty, what made you do that?!!".

Since then, my hair has grown A LOT and I have a head full of crazy curls. Now the whole perspective has changed. Now all I hear is "Oh my gosh your hair is so pretty" and "Wow you have the 'good hair' " and "Can I touch it?". I LOVE MY HAIR!! and I don't see myself going back to damaging relaxers again.

    No, it doesn't exactly "fall out". Lol. It breaks off, because some people don't know how to take care of the hair, so it breaks off because the hair is dry and brittle. :)
