    I Was Bullied Because Of My Haircolor - So My Mom Forced Me To Dye It.

    I have black hair, and when I was a kid it was very long and thick too. I always were it in a braid. Some guys in school made fun of me and teased me. One tried to burn me with a lighter. My mom heard about it, but instead punish the perpetrator, she forced me to cut  most...

    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...

    Hairy Situations

    When I was little I had long hair. To my arse long. I grew up with my grandparents. My grandmother "loved" my hair and never let me get it cut. Thanks to her, my hair was part of why I was relentlessly bullied. No ***** from her could be given. My mum went behind her back and got...

    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...
