My son thinks my hair feels like grass

A few minutes ago my eleven year old son walks by and touched my hair he then proceeds to tell my my hair feels like grass (St. Augustines I guess, because its what is in my yard). I tried not to laugh, I felt my hair and it was crunchy from the gel I had in it, so i scrunched out the crunch and asked him to run his hand down my curls again. He said nope mom your hair still feels like grass. LOL!! this is funny, but then not really.
I recently did the BC and my hair is about 5 inches wet and shrinks to about two inches dry. I have 3c hair, alot of it so it feels really thick.
Did anyone elses hair feel this dense when it was short? does it get better as it grows longer?

Kids, ya gotta love 'em. I might end up taking that as a compliment, because I've always thought grass felt kind of soft. That might just be me, though.

I'm to much of a chicken to get my hair cut short, but I know my hair would only get dense if I got it cut that short. Yes, my hair seemed to get thinner as it grows out. That might just be me, though.

Sorry to be of such little help!

Thanks violetcurls that actually made me feel much better. I hope it does thin out as it gets longer. For now, I keep it curly but when I know someone will have their hands on my head (my chiropractor) I rollerset it and wear it straight so it feels softer.
My chiropractor was also taken back by how thick it felt. He actually asked me to take it off, he mustve thought it was a hair piece or something. I laughed and then explained to him that it was just what my hair does when its short and curly.

Did he honestly do that? He must've had a lot of guts. The chiropractor, that is. Some people never cease to amaze me.

yup he actually did that... I wasnt offended as much as I was concerned about the texture of my hair.
