Until today, I have NEVER had random people grabbing/touching my hair. I work in a field with very PROFESSIONAL behavioral standards (look at my name and guess what I do), so it's rare for people to be fondling each other's hair.

It totally grosses me out because I know what they've been touching and that some of them only use the sanitizing foam instead of washing their hands before and after each patient.

Nurses all over the floor run their hands through my husband's (who works in the lab) hair.

I've never been pregnant but I think curly and pregnant would super suck with people rubbing your stomach and your hair.
