I have been natural now for 8 years and in that time I have perfected the art of "Reflex Hand-Smacking". I DO NOT like when people I don't know invade my private space, and it is now complete reflex for me to smack your hand if it gets within 2 inches of my hair. I'm actually glad I have this technic down pat because I do not plan on having strangers grope my stomach when I'm pregnant and anyone who tries to pet my baby's hair will draw back a stub!
