Airport Stories

First off, my curly hair isn't even that "big" per se (I'm a 2c/3a blend). About a year ago I got patted down in the airport because there was some residue on my hands from a product I'd used that morning and they were worried about it... It was a DevaCurl product.

Just recently, I was going through security in my hometown on the way to Phoenix. I'd just washed, dried and scrunched out the gel in my hair so my curls were down and bouncy. I walked through and the security guard was like, "Woah, big hair."

I didn't say anything but I really wanted to be like, "You've never seen curly hair before?"

Jeez, people.

You would be amazed at what people do and don't notice or know.

Nothing about hair but when I was flying out of LAX to Beijing, the TSA agent pulled me aside to do a search and said she was going to touch my "sensitive areas". She then put her hands over my boobs...wtf?!?! I didn't want to make a scene and an airport isn't the best place to call attention to yourself.

I had a trip with my school two years back and on our way back from Europe, in the Chicago airport they stopped me while my friends and teacher were boarding to pat my hair down. It was so embarrassing because my friends all stopped to watch. My teacher came over upset and demanded to know why I had to be patted down like that when there were other girls there with bigger hair (mine was still wet so it was basically flat). It was so irritating. Lately I've heard that they were supposed to stop this, though?

I flew out of Seattle a couple of weeks ago en route to Orange County. At BOTH airports, the TSA agents told me they were going to "pat my hair". I immediately thought of this thread! hahahaha

It makes you wonder how they choose who they choose because I've never had my hair patted on domestic or international flights. I hear people complain about screening people but they're very pleasant to me. We even lightly joke sometimes. It's the customs people that I've mostly found to be kind of rude.

I had them pat my hair once too. It completely surprised me!
