Im a teen and i dont have a relaxer in my hair, im currently all natural. My natural hair isn't kinky but its just very frizzy and i literally have to put a headband over my head to keep the frizz down. Now that im in high school i feel people might think i dont take care of my hair since it looks really frizzy even when i brush it. My mom suggested that i get a relaxer to straighten my hair so that it will be more manageble and look better but i just really want to keep my natural hair because i want to know how to take care of my real hair and plus chemicals in relaxers are really harsh and can cause hair loss 😅 Also if i was to describe my hair, just imagine a lion's mane that just got its hair blown out with a blow dryer, along with really frizzy edges xD. Anyways do you think i should get a relaxer or try to work with my natural hair? Also encouraging words are nice since this is an insecurity of mine, so be nice : )

I discourage relaxers, honestly. The way that I educated myself in how to take care of the hair type I have is simply by research, and even looking at what women are doing on YouTube, which has greatly increased my hair care in a positive way.
I'm not sure what hair type you have, but maybe if you braid it up, leave it that way overnight, then take it down in the morning, you might have a really neat wavy pattern instead of it being frizzy. Or like somebody else said, flat iron it, but also use some heat protecting spray.
As far as what the kids thing, as you grow and mature in life, you will find that you can't make everybody happy, and you shouldn't live to please people. They will always pick something about you to gossip or judge you over. You can never win with society.2
