Haha, soo glad I'm not the only one that feels like this!
Omg I feel like a circus animal at school. When i meet someone they're always like "I love your hair! It's so cool!" Then proceed to fluff it and boing it and make it al frizzy.... Ugh and then I feel bad for telling them off because they just complimented me and everything... Where as my family, they never ever touch my hair. The other day I was like "Mom, how come you guys never touch my hair and stuff, I mean with my friends it's so out of control but with you guys, it's like it's nothing diferent!" My mom started laughing and said "When you were little, like 2, you'd always freak out when we and strangers would touch your hair, we just learned to control ourselves!" So I guess it's been that way forever with me! Hehe but seriously we HAVE to spread awareness regarding this issue...
