2 years ago when I got my first job, I wore my hair in its natural state (curly) and my boss had told me that it was "unprofessional" and "unkempt" and I had to straighten it. Honestly I would've walked out of there after she basically told me she didn't "approve" of the hair that grow out of my head but I needed that job at the time LOL.
So how do you describe natural hair on black women/women of color in general?

Seriously she told you that? What was the job? Do you still work there? You should of really filed a complaint at the time. Thats are lawsuit waiting to happen. There are some jobs where they can demand you do something but those are usually model jobs.
I like it when it's natural.2

I hate when people who aren't black tell me my hair isn't professional or looks weird natural. Like kiss my ass, my hair is thick, healthy, and beautiful, and you're just a hater.4
