Personally, I think choosing/dating/marrying a partner based on hair texture is a little shallow.
It also amazes me that people who have trouble with relaxed or straighten hair are never volunteers to do the daily/weekly/monthly maintenance and styling of another person's natural hair. If I've got a man that is going to wake up every morning and maintain my (hair)do, then I would probably wear it in whatever style he wants it in!!
Shango67 ... when's the last time you did daily maintenance on a sista's hair?
