Oh my gawd, this happens to me ALL THE TIME. I have 3a hair I guess (I literally just found this out about 5 minutes ago) and it's very elasticy, so my friends are always like, "Can I touch it?" because they like to pull curls and watch as they immediately boing back to their original shape. One time this random women just grabbed a handful of my hair and asked if it was natural. Truthfully, I'm so used to it, it doesn't even really bother me anymore.
