I am a black girl and have a short afro. I go to a mostly white school and my friends make fun of me and say no guy will like my nappy hair. I've only had 1 boyfriend (who was black by the way) and he would make fun of my hair too so I'm starting to believe everyone. Please be honest, is black people's hair unattractive?

Nothing is wrong with it. I have relaxed hair, I got my hair relaxed right before middle school because I wanted to fit in. unfortunately there is a stigma against natural hair in the black community. that's why we have good hair/bad hair dichotomy, why so many mothers will perm their child's "nappy" hair when they are young children, and why so many black girls have never even seen their natural texture aside from new growth right before she's about to perm it.
if your "friends" are making fun of your hair then they are not your real friends. you don't put someone down because of their natural features. that would be like telling one of your friends no guy will like her curvy hips or small breasts, you just don't do that!
From what I see, natural hair is slowly making a comeback. I have seen girls I used to go to school with chop off their relaxed ends and rock a short fro, curly and kinky textures and styles are coming back and a lot of guys are growing dreds now.
Be confident and love yourself! you already show strength for not conforming to the "black girl must relax and weave up her hair to be beautiful" mentality.
Natural hair is beautiful Sorry that a bunch of small minded idiots made you feel bad about the hair God gave you that's growing out of your scalp but its not true. they are just brainwashed by the media but you know better!
