What do you think about curly hair?

My hair is naturally very curly & frizzy and I absolutely refrained from posting pictures of my natural hair on the internet so far because I don't wanna be drowned in a shitstorm of black people from the US hating on me for, as they think, "appropriating their culture" because apparently they think they own my hair. In elementary school I was bullied for my hair and even now I have random people walk up to me on the street and just touch my hair, sometimes without even asking for my permission!, or ask me if it's "real" if I ever dare to go out without straightening it. So I usually make sure I've straightened it or put it back with a clasp before leaving the house or taking any pictures for the internet which is kinda frustrating because I actually like my curls and am sick of hiding them.

I was wondering why the reactions of people to my hair are always so extreme but mostly what you all think about really curly, frizzy hair on people in general? What is it about (apparently especially white) people with curly hair that provokes so many random people so much?

What do you think about curly hair? For those wondering, this is the kind of curly we're talking..

  • Oh, man. I bet curly hair looks so great on you.
    I love naturally curly hair.

    It's not culture appropriation if you're born with it!
    That's natural.

    I'm biracial and I love seeing curly hair on white women. So few embrace what they naturally have.

  • If the curly hair is natural, I almost always think it looks better on the girl, than if she were to change it! For me, it's like seeing a girl going back to her natural hair color: the fake color may look good too, but there's just something about her natural color that just feels so right on her. :) The same goes for straight or curly hair, in my opinion: I usually find that the girl looks nicer with whatever type she naturally has.

    As a side note, does Taylor Swift have naturally curly hair? Because I always thought she looked better with the curly hair before. xD

    • I don't know about her natural hair but I think that she looks so much better with the bob cut as well, it flatters her face shape so much more!

  • lol, don't worry about the cultural appropriation crap. I'd like to think that most black people don't buy into that garbage (i can only hope). But i'm a fan of pretty much any hair that is natural to the woman. I don't really know what ugly hair really looks like, but if its natural to you then i think its quite cool. I mean, a woman's hair, or overall looks in general, will never be quite as good as mine, but as along as you're trying, that's what matters most

    • Yeah, all that "cultural appropriation" crap is psychotic! America is a melding pot whic is why we're so flush culturally. If anyone's gonna think of a particular hair style as intellectual property, we oughta put em on a bus to Cuba!

    • @palek haha, i agree mate

  • depends on the person and the hairstyle... sometimes I like it, sometimes it's meh... not too much of a fan of that mushroom look

      No idea what it's called so here's a picture 😅 And on moist days when that's not enough I also straighten my hair with an iron and of course I use loads of anti-frizz products too, it's such a pain in the ass 😅

  • I love curly hair!

    Mine is flat, straight, terrible - doesn't hold any hairstyle.
    I feel if I had curly hair just by having that sort of texture there would be less work and more style to it. =)
    Curly and wavy hair is beautiful!

    • That's because you're cool ;D <3
      I'm mainly talking about the less tolerant people here though.
      Haha actually even a British girl asked me if I was "trying to be black" once, I'll never forget that it was like asking someone who tans easily in summer if they're "trying to be mexican" 😂

  • I like it! Hate it when people say its appropriation to have big lips or curly natural hair, some people are born like that, no one owns it lol.
