I, actually, would pay people to touch my hair
. Every great once in awhile, someone will lightly touch my hair and comment on the curls.
My husband, however, knows he needs to feed my wave/curl ego as it's all because of him I decided to let my hair do it's own thing (with the help of 100 or so products over the last couple of years
). So he frequently touches just the bottom and tells me when it looks good.
When someone does touch my hair, it's usually just on one curl or ringlet and they just lightly touch it at the bottom. I would imagine I'd pull back in horror if someone began picking my waves/curls apart, though!
