I actually don't have a proper curl pattern it's just a mix of kinks and odd curls and course frizz, I've tried natural no amount of hair product works and I've tried a twist out braid out to try and get some curl in there and it doesn't work. I'm mixed raced which might have something to do with it. Thanks anyway though.(Original post by HopefulMidwife)
Wow, you sound brainwashed. I have nothing to say but check out the links I mentioned. It's upsetting that you believe the only thing to do with afro hair is to straighten it or chemically process it. That's a disservice and disrespect to the many people I know who know how to care for, and enjoy, their afro hair. Wow. Just. Wow.
By the way, all these women have afro hair and are natural. So don't disrespect afro hair just because you're unable to deal with it;

Didn't you hear? We're not allowed to be different. We all have to dress, style, and act the same; it's discipline, right?
The biggest problem with our education system is it stifles creativity, imagination, innovation, never mind extending that to hairstyles.

Also, you being mixed race has nothing to do with it. I'm mixed race and don't have afro hair. Some people are full black and have hair like mine. It just depends, really. Very little is dependent on race, it's just certain races are more likely to have a certain phenotype.
Lastly, if your hair is damaged from poor hair care and/or lots of heat, it's not going to cooperate. Healthy hair is much more likely too.Last edited by HopefulMidwife; 22-04-2013 at 21:54.

I'm actually surprised at your sound logic here! You aren't as bad as you act sometimes. I personally don't see the point in strict rules about hair in schools anyway. Fair enough in the world of work, but seems unnecessary in schools. If anything, short skirts are more of an issue than hair can be.
However I think haircuts are very important. If a guy came in with a complete skinhead, then they were a piece of **** - and no, this is not an exaggeration. Why? Because what type of guys get that haircut? Oh right, the ones who liked to fight, cause trouble, disrupt lessons etc. So what quickly happens is that this haircut becomes part of a uniform for these *******s and they all jump onto the bandwagon and try acting like the first kid who did it. The result? A bunch of wild kids causing trouble.
Now, if you jump on the first guy who does this and force him to grow back his hair or face expulsion, this forces authority onto him (just like in the army). This results in the kid being less of an arse and no one following him. This of course applies to girls getting cheap slapper/chavy haircuts too as it is all about one thing, forcing a good standard and authority onto the bad kids.
So this is why you have a catch-22 situation with kids who have afro-carb hair. On one hand you say their hair is different and they are an exception. Result? **** ton of racism and stigmatisation. Every dumbass kid will claim it is liberal biasing and you will segregate them simply because people are too stupid to realise that hair differs. This leaves you with having one-rule-for-all which results in a pain for the afro-carb kids, though I would say most likely less of a pain.
Obviously this could all be side stepped with a license to have kids so all stupid and bigoted kids are not born, but alas, I think that might be a wee bit harder to implement than the 2 rules above

Who cares? I doubt they are being excluded because of their ethnicity, and they shouldn't receive special treatment because of it.
The school sets its rules, follow them or go elsewhere. It teaches standards and discipline.Last edited by oluwakendrick; 23-04-2013 at 23:47.

Because of 'behaviour'? That has nothing to do with ethnicity. If someone misbehaves then they should be punished, ethnicity should have no dictation on whether or not they are allowed to stay.
