The Top 10 Most Rude Comments Family and Friends Make About My Natural Hair

I think anyone who wears her hair natural after wearing it straight can write a book about the “unique” comments that they may encounter – usually from those closest to us – our family and friends. 

Here are 10 of the most rude comments that I’ve encountered about my natural hair:

  1. What are you trying to do?
  2. Your job lets you wear your hair like that?
  3. Oh, interesting…
  4. I can’t go natural- I want my hair to look good!
  5. I liked the way your hair used to look.
  6. I can tell that you don’t have to spend a lot of time on your hair.
  7. What does your family/partner think?
  8. My partner/husband would never like my hair that way!
  9. I have a professional job so I’d never be able to wear my hair natural.
  10. So, when are you going to straighten your hair?
