Hi there,
Don't have as much LSD clout as others, but as a fellow natural I would say go with the first hair style (from the pics from your original post). Your family (and everyone for that matter) needs to come to terms with the fact that your hair is natural and can look good at the same time so a style like that should garner nothing but compliments (and maybe some "can I touch it?" comments from curious/nosy people).

Best of luck with whatever you choose. I'm sure you'll look fabulous anyway.

"can I touch it?" comments from curious/nosy people

is that rude?

i asked if a could touch a friend's fro this weekend bc i thought it looked sexy and i didn't want to jinx him.  it's an old mexican superstition.

Hey Seu,
I know from personal experience that if another black female or even a latina asks me I am not offended, especially when followed by a nice comment. It's usually when a old white lady I work with asks (sorry but I had to go there). That's why I put curious/nosy. Sometimes when I get my hair done people(the white folk I work with or go to school with) are so in my sh*t it gets annoying. Then if I let them touch, they have the nerve to make comments about how my hair is soft like it should be rough like sandpaper...

 But I know when a Black or latina sista asks it's usually cuz they may be considering it themselves at some point in the future.
But as far as the superstition I think I hear that you do have to watch who touches your hair because if they are jealous they might jinx you and your hair will fall out or stop growing. But I am not sure if it is Mexican though...

Don't you hate when white people seem so "fascinated"? "How did you do that? next thing you know you see their hand coming towards your head.. >:( can i touch it please? i could never get my hair to do something like that  >:(.. they'll pull back a NUB

What's the difference between a woman of color asking and a white woman asking? Do you automatically assume that the white woman is acting in bad faith or maliciously?  I mean, there are some hairstyles that black women can wear that white women can wear too.  Some white women have very curly hair textures that can hold many of the styles that you wear.  If a woman like that is interested in wearing her hair that way and she wants to touch yours, would you be offended?
