If your children are interracial..........

Do you get asked a lot what you put in their hair?  I've been asked 3 times in the past 2 weeks if I give my 4 year old perms.  Her hair is curly.  Doesn't a perm make their hair straight?  Maybe I'm just hormonal but it's starting to irritate the crap out of me.

  • No, but I do get asked this question a lot: "How in the world do you take care of that hair?? It's soooooo curly. I bet it's really hard to take care of" LOL! My daughter has THE most whacked out fro I have ever seen, and she's half Mexican! It's too cute.

  • I do have a regimend, lol.  I think I'm just being an ass.  I keep getting asked all kinds of crazy crap.  Like if her hair is a wig, if her hair is hard to get a brush through.  I don't even use a brush.  Normally I understand the need to talk to other moms and trying to start up a conversation can be hard and uncomfortable but for tonight, I'm letting it piss me off, lol.  Tomorrow I'll go back to normal.

  • BTW, I think there are perms for curling and straightening. I so want to get a relaxer for my daughter's hair, but I've been told not to because it's damaging. Her hair does get on my nerves sometimes. LOL.
