Does black women's natural hair (locs, afros, etc) bother men?

I wear my hair in a medium length, curly fro and I haven't had a horrible experience, but when I go to the suburbs, people look at me like I'm a character. Thoughts?

  • Ignorance aside, I'd say not too many have much of a problem lest there be no blacks or people mixed with black on earth.

    People in suburbs where you live have never seen Negro race people or negroes with Fro's? Where's this... in Montana or somewhere in the plains? Lol.

    • Thanks for the explanation. The prejudiced part is kinda true with illinois suburbs :/

    • I can understand.

  • Both my parents wore afros for their wedding. I'm 100% white. So...

    It's not inherently unattractive. It's not in style at the moment I think, but any guy that wouldn't date you because of that isn't worth it all

  • I don't like afros and locs, I'm not a fan of curly hair either. It's not that she's black, I just don't like it. I prefer straight or wavy hair.

  • Honestly, it's not a deal breaker but it does bother me a bit. I like running my hair through my girls hair

  • I probably like dead straight hair the best.

    I like 'black women's natural hair' second best.

    I like hair like my own the least :D

    I'll note that 'big' hair looks best on petite/slim women.

    • They might just be looking because it's not that common where they live. So they're like 'there's something interesting'. Some may not like it, some may love it, but it's just not the same thing they see every day.

  • Not at all. I love black women! :-)

  • When I wear my hair natural (I'm Black, btw), I get a lot of compliments from men, mostly because they're trying to figure out my curl pattern (tight ringlets) and how it's so much shorter curly than straight. It's not 'fro-like at all. I do tend to wear my hair straight most of the time, so maybe they appreciate the versatility.

  • I can't speak for men, but I think it can look really beautiful.

    Some of my friends get them in tight braids sometimes (if not naturally down), and wear them half up, or all up. That looks pretty as well.
