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?
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!
I'm biracial and I love seeing curly hair on white women. So few embrace what they naturally have.1
