    I'm so sick of my mom asking me if I'm going to straighten my hair...

    She doesn't like how my hair is and thinks it would look better straight...

    I keep telling her over and over that I'm never straightening my hair...

    And I'm getting to the point where I'm starting to yell and it's pissing me off...

    I'm sick of it!!!!!

    I'd just ignore her...she'll eventually see that you're not relaxing your hair anymore.

    I saw a thread where you cut it all off like Amber Rose. How long is it now?

    Be nice and patient with your Mother ... no matter what.

    ... and ... "never" ... is a long time

    Just love her through it ... she loves you.

    :heart:

    I was lucky because my mother is the one who convinced me to go natural. Others, however have told me how they don't think it is a good idea. My younger brother asked me if I was sure I wanted to do it, after a few months of letting it grow out, he loves it. My older brother still isn't on the bandwagon, but I am sure he will come around. Just do you, people aren't use to seeing it as much, they associate natural with nappy, and nappy with dirty and unkempt. Just let her know (as nicely as possible) that this is a personal decision and you don't plan on changing your mind. You know how parents can be sometimes, they just feeling like you are raging against the machine...and them, when in fact you are just doing you. Keep going, when she sees the long hair (unless you decide to keep it short), she will come around. My mother's hair is wayyyyy looser and she has bigger curls than me, but she wishes she had my tight kinky coils, because I can do what she can't do with my hair. Just give her some more time to get use to it. Keep hope alive!
