My hair is similar to this, but the color is natural. White men have always been most likely to remark on it. Most recently, a white man approached me at the grocery store and said something along the lines of him being powerless to keep his comments on my hair to himself and he reached out his hand to me, so I was creeped out enough to run away. (It was in a French braid at the time.)

Women compliment my hair most when I wear it down and very wavy--if I set it on about 9 braids overnight I get very wavy hair versus the sort of wavy hair I get if it's just allowed to dry as is. There is no pattern in race.
