I am 18 and I have been wearing an Afro since I was 14 and everybody I meet asks me why don't I get a perm. The answer is always because I don't want to and because I like my Afro just fine. They don't get it and they look at me like I'm some kind of freak for not doing what every one else is doing. Or they say I would look prettier if I had a perm. These are girls talking too not the guys..Why is everyone so fascinated with MY hair? It is MY hair isn't it?
Havent had anyone say this. But when I was on the creamy crack I said this to a girl because I was young and naive and its one thing I wish I could take back. I now love my afro and everyone seems to love it, even guys, so don't let that discourage you. Love yourself and love your hair because its honestly a beautiful and unique thing darlin'. =)
