    Default Question for those with straight hair (like me!)

    This is random, but are people always utterly fascinated when they find out your hair is naturally straight? People are always amazed, and can't get it through their heads that I don't straighten it, blowdry it, or have any weird straightening treatments in it. I seriously don't understand why they find it so odd.

    Can anyone else relate?

    Mine is pretty straight, and the reaction I usually get is jealousy, rather than disbelief. Ironically I would prefer slightly curlier hair (although I know it is harder to look after).

    Well... yeah. That too. xD I like having mine straight, it would just be nice to have some volume.

    When I don't have layers, my hair hangs curtain-straight. It is very thin, though, so maybe it's not so staggering to see that way...not sure. I think people do assume I straighten my hair.

    Mostly people don't believe me when I say I haven't straightened it?!

    It takes me coming out with soaking wet hair (summer only!) and them actually watching it dry to believe it's natural straight shiny-ness.

    I find it annoying that people are starting to suggest I have extensions or some brasillian straightening or something again. One of the only pitfalls to long hair!

    Never had anyone ask if I straighten my hair.. I never realized how many people straighten their hair. just never occured to me having straight hair myself I always think it's naturally straight.. I admire people with thick waves and curls it's beautiful..

    I'm one of the people who responds with awe and jealousy to people like you guys. :P My hair is faiirrrly wavy and I just wish it would pick one or the other - either be stick straight or be curly. Blargh. Not fair. I WISH I didn't have to straighten my hair.

    Oh yes. This happens with just about everyone I meet, but I don't mind. It's quite nice, actually - I think I get a great deal of undeserved credit from people who think I put a ton of time & effort into my hair, when in reality I'm so lazy that I often just roll out of bed & go (^(oo)^)v

    I've gotten a couple people assuming that I straighten who are surprised that I do, but thankfully no one has been rude about it (yet)

    I have super straight hair but not many people comment as it's usually in a plait. I used to wear it down when it was shorter for going out, and one friend used to always ask the same thing when she'd had a few ales: "Do you iron your hair ? Go on, you must do ! Do you iron it ? Do you ?" etc. I'd never heard of ironing hair and though she was a bit bonkers
