Forced to Straighten because of rude remarks?!
I just found this site and I'm so glad I did because I feel like the only one who has this issue! I have hair type 3a/3b and it usually looks like a complete bush -_-
Last semester I wore it curly for the first time and I looked across the classroom only to see a guy mocking my hair with his hands out as far as they could go and laughing. So I never wore it curly again the entire semester, which made a lot of split ends.
So this semester I decided to try wearing it curly again since he's not in any of my new classes. But everyone wanted to run their fingers through it, which was not helpful to the volume at all. Also, another guy in my class would NOT stop repeatedly calling me poodle, and even my friend was saying I looked like Carl from walking dead, I looked like Davy Jones because of his squid beard thing, I looked like I had dread locks and dread rolls. That was weeks ago and yet they still bring it up ALL the time to laugh at me about it. So I feel like I'm forced to straighten it! Braiding it while wet doesn't work to made the curls more wavy either.. Apparently I'm stuck with split ends until I'm out of high school
