I personally have always loved it. I think it looks so pretty, and when I was younger I used to want a perm to get it. Maybe it's because I have straight hair, and I've always thought straight hair is pretty boring. I am happy to see more women with textured hair are going "natural" and opting out from using weave or straighteners, thought it's still rare. That's not to say they shouldn't have the choice, but I really like seeing this hair too.
It's nice until it rubs up on your skin, then it's like sandpaper. Wrestled some guys in high school and a common technique to rub your forehead against your opponent to cause pain and make him uncomfortable/distracted. Afro hair magnified this effect like twice, and the guys new it too so they kept trying to do it.
