People with curls that straighten, and say 'Your's look Beautiful'

I know a girl in my neighborhood who straightens her hair (it's in the 2 types) , it looks good straight but a couple (though very very few) times I see her when she doesn't have straight hair, and I proceed to tell her 'You're hair looks really nice.' She tells me (she's not being rude BTW) 'Thanks, though I straighten it because I don't like. But you have like the most beautiful hair EVER!' This actually happened more then once with different people.

What is it about not liking your hair? She clearly likes curly hair, if she likes mine, is it just that everyone is there own self-critic? I guess she, and many others, need to find that balance of love with our hair, which many times we didn't have when we were younger.

Do you know other curlies that straighten, and never fail to say how much they love your hair? Come on! You love it on other people, love yours too!

    I totally understand!I think curly hair looks amazing on others but terrible on me and I have the added problem of a round face...

    I know lots of people who straighten and tell me my curls are prettier than theirs are. I want to shake them and tell them to quit straightening and get to know and care for their curls. Personally, I think it's a lack of self-esteem that keeps them from embracing their natural curl. ...The grass is always greener on the other side you know. ;)

    Wait!... Who am I to talk - that was ME not so long ago!! :oops: LOL!

    It only took me to the age of about 30 (at least - maybe 35) to figure out that I had some pretty cool curls. ;)

    We are our own worst critics.

    I've had people say this to me. Im sure I've said it myself in the past.
