I'm currently having problems with my self esteem, and one of the causes is my hair. I know it sounds stupid, but I'm mixed race and have uncontrollable afro hair. As a result, I straighten it an awful lot, It's the only time I can feel sort of pretty when I have straight hair. I want to cry every time I look in the mirror with my natural hair. People at school make me feel so ugly by always laughing at my hair and I see so many racist posts about black peoples hair. Also, the media makes me feel much much worse! A majority of models and people on tv have beautiful straight or wavy hair and it just gets me down so much. I see posts on the internet of people saying things like "Why do black people have such bad hair". It just makes me so insecure:/ I'm extremely close to just getting extensions because I can't take feeling like this every day because of my stupid hair! Does anyone else feel this way?
