I have had a co-worker ask me if I have a "perm" but I haven't had anyone try to touch my hair yet (thankfully). I'm reasonably sure I would consider punching them if they did. That is soooooo rude! It would never occur to me to do that to anyone else, not even someone I know well. I'm a firm believer in that 18 inches of space. If you get any closer than that you better be planning on marrying me! (only kidding)

I know that some people feel that anything they find fascinating is public domain, like a pregnant woman's stomach (now THAT takes nerve!).

I agree with the person who said they take a step back. I would try that first... then if the hair grabber didn't take the hint, I'd punch their lights out! Oh wait, that would lead to a lawsuit... never mind, I'll just run!

Really? I take it as a compliment when people bounce my curls (: It makes me feel like I'm doing something right hahaha. It is kinda weird when strangers do it, though, but usually that doesn't happen.

Yea I get frustrated because people usually disguise "weave checking" me with "just playing with it" and my family is very superstiscios and I try not to be but its hard when things are instilled in you all your life. All my aunts and my mom and gma would always tell me not to let people touch my hair or play in it cus it would fall out.

Oh man! I forgot about the "weave check". A woman I worked with many years ago did that! I forgot all about it until I read your post. I had long, relaxed hair then and I guess she just couldn't believe it was all me!

I get irritated when people randomly play with my hair, but not because of a personal space thing. Its bc it messes it up!

I don't mind, as long as they don't run their fingers through my hair! I friend did that, and she frizzed up my bangs. :/

I am a phlebotomist at a hospital. Man the older ladies LOVE my curly hair. "Is it real? Is it natural?" and they instantly grab my hair. I understand Im in your personal space drawing you blood but THAT DOESNT MEAN YOU CAN TOUCH MY HAIR!! ick ick ick. It gives me heebe-jeebies. I feel bad for the little ladies sometimes and try not to get mad. They mean well But honestly.....curly hair and old ladies...what is it!?

As far as playing with hair. I have a habit of twirling my hair without realizing. I was having coffee with my cousin the other day and she timed me for 45 minutes twirling my hair before she screamed "STOP"

Because my hair is so springy (I assume) babies actually like to play with my hair. I use to baby sit a lot growing up and I've never had a child under two not try and play with my hair.

Considering the audience, it's pretty cute...it does make for questionable substances accumulating in my hair though .

I don't understand why my playing with my own hair pisses off or irritates someone else, unless they're jealous. It's my hair, I'm playing with my own hair, what business is it of yours? That's my take on it. I'm not hurting you.
I freely acknowledge I have a habit of playing with, and twirling my curls, but so what? It's not hurting anyone. It's not like I'm picking my nose!
