    Dude

    I Used to get bullied alot because a long time ago at my school ,s short hair was popular , but my mother refused to allow me to cut it because of a cultural issue. They used to pull at my long hair and try and cut it when i wasn't looking.

    I was bullied for a lot of reasons,

    most I could never understand, but my hair seemed to be something that caught my old classmates eyes.When I was thirteen-fourteen, I dyed my hair for the first time. Actually, my then-best friend's Mum did. It was supposed to be blonde streaks throughout my natural brown hair...

    Curls!

    I've always had wild, curly hair. In the 90's having big hair was not that much of a problem, but late primary-early high school I started receiving comments such as "frizzball", "frizzbomb", "frizzhead", "hair bear bunch", "Don't you own straighteners??", "Get a haircut" - and...

    In Middle School

    It didn't matter if I had weave, extensions, a good hair day, a bad hair day, regular hair, natural hair, whatever hair... The only time people didn't make comments about my hair is if I was wearing a hat or hoodie and of course at school that wasn't allowed. Now, I know I have...

    Ignorance Is Definitely Not Bliss.

    People can be so cruel sometimes. Not a day goes by that the idiots I'm forced to work with say some sh*t like ¨nice hair, gay boy,” or “rapunzel, rapunzel let down your hair!” It's a wonder I haven't gone crazy. having long hair (as a guy) can be more trouble than it's...
