Do men prefer the "natural" look, regardless of its texture? Relaxed? Straightened (by flat iron)? Weave? Braids? Jerry Curl? lol
Why is this such a controversial topic?

I think its more controversial in the black community that it is outside it. You know, with the "good" hair versus "bad " hair. Who APPEARS to be more mixed and who's not , based on hair type. The natural vs relaxed vs weave. The authenticity of someone's "blackness" based on their hair. Stuff like that.
This is one of those things things where its going to be some do and some don't. You're going to have some that like it regardless and might even have a preference. You're going to have some that's going to like certain hair types or hair styles. These two I just mentioned, like it partly ,if not only because "exotic." In other words, because its something they're not use to seeing, especially on black women. You're going to have some that only like it if is long, regardless of texture. Then you have those who are all about the European standards of beauty. I"m not saying ALL of the men who only like straight , long hair are all about this, but you do have some who are. Then you have some who just doesn't care.
I know you're just curious about what they have to say, but at the end of the day, it doesn't matter what they think about it. I've dated a guy who thought I looked better with the straight hair and suggested me to get a relaxer. I've dated a guy who like my matter hair,because its different and he's never dated someone with natural hair.
