it is so annoying. Not just other races but black people also. I get so tired of people assuming that black hair doesn't grow long or if its long and nice it must be fake or I must be mixed with something. It really annoys me.
Black grows the same rate as any other race when you stop putting harmful chemicals in it to break it off and using too much heat. In my pics my hair is straightened...but I am so tired of having to "prove" to people my hair is real. It gets on my nerves. Any other black women deal with this.
And no you don't have to be mixed...i have seen plenty of dark black women with natural hair down their backs! Educate yourself about black hair, it grows!

my girlfriend is black and according to her, it's far from easy to maintain. when it does grow, it's tough to make it grow right without extensive and strict maintenance. She's working on growing it longer, but I guess it takes more time to grow it properly than the hair of other races.1
