Arrow What is Beautiful in PR?

Hello All,

I'm new to the forum and moving to San Juan in February for my MBA. I am a black woman from California with natural kinky afro hair. I was talking to some friends the other day and they told me that when I move to PR, I would be considered strange or unattractive because I don't straighten my hair, and people may treat me differently because I have what they would call "pelo malo."

I'd like to know if women in PR ever wear their hair natural or if there are even salons for natural hair?

My fiance is Puerto Rican (fair skin and straight hair) and he loves my afro so I wonder what others think about women who wear an afro. What is considered beautiful in PR?

Thanks!

Ps

This link below is what I look like (I don't think i'm unattractive..)
