Do you mind when people touch your hair without asking?

Like Tree2Likes

I don't hate it but I find it a lil funny. Like for example I was in school doing work and the next thing I know I feel someone playing with my curls, I look behind me and some random girl just blushes than says sorry and I just burst out laughing lol
if they aren't friends or family, its fine as long as they ASK FIRST
i cannot tell you how many times someone has grabbed my head for no reason and i'm just like WTF and they are all "why are you getting so upset" but what they don't get is that you violated my personal space!!!

It doesn't bother me because I always touch my friends hair without asking so they under stand. BUT I don't like it if they play with it to long, because its super curly and it gets tangled a lot. And its funny when some one randomly comes up and touches my hair cause I freak out i'm like "what the" and there like"sorry" lol its so funny!

I just had this happen to me at work a couple of weeks ago.

A co-worker came up behind me and started touching my hair without my permission. Telling me how pretty it was.

I was upset because my hair was still kinda damp and told her to stop because she would make my hair frizz. She laughed and said...."no it won't..." Now this lady has a huge frizzy mullet herself. So obviously frizz doesn't bother her.

She thought I was being silly and when I told that my boyfriend of over 4 years doesn't even touch my hair like that she laughed at me again. She never apologized and continued to make fun of me for several days afterward. Needless to say I don't have much to do with her anymore.

If you want to touch, ask me. Otherwise, don't.

it is so annoying when people touch my hair. I only let my mom and a guy I like touch my hair.
I don't like it when strangers touch my daughter's hair because they like to run their fingers through it. Her hair is 3c.
Yes, I mind. I mind a lot, actually. And I get really angry when people mind that I mind. Lol.

My coworkers, sure. My boyfriend and best friends, yes. My brother, definitely. The random woman in Target who thinks it "looks so soft"...nuh uh. I don't like people I don't know touching me anyway. I'd never touch a stranger, and I think it's disrespectful anytime someone assumes it's okay to just touch another random person without any sort of warning.

Sorry if I sound mad hostile. I just woke up. Lol

There are people in my immediate circle that automatically touch my hair whenever they hug me or greet me. It is always with a compliment. These peopme I don't mind.

I was getting an infusion once and the nurse touched my hair. I wanted to be offended but thought "she just put an IV in my arm, its okay for her to touh my hair".

So to sum it up it all depends on who, when, and where!!

Family and Sometimes Friends. Strangers hell no. They mess up my hair running their fingers through my hair.

No it's the ppl that come at me with the claw hand I dnt like. Open palm fluff up, good. Claw like hand, I will break your wrist
I hate it with a deep passion burning down in my soul. It annoys the poop out of me. I just wanna slap who ever is frizzing up my hair!!!
People at my school actually made a dare out of it. Like as in who dares to touch my hair ... So my hair gets grabbed a LOT. In my country, hair like mine is super rare! everybody has straight or wavy and thin hair, and they think it really fun to touch my hair the entire time. But I don't like at all, it even bothers me when my family touches my hair. The only time i thought it was funny was when I was visiting Las Vegas and a guy came up to me, grabbed my hair and went "it's like a lion!"
I dont hate it. Its just when in school someone could've just finnished eating and without washing their hands they dfig their hands into my 'fro and make it all messy/dirty.
It doesnt bother me so much but when people start pulling to see if i can feel it thats when i get kinda mad cause they pull it to see it if i can feel it.
Hate it. Period. Mostly because the people touching it are usually trying to be wise a$$es. I'd probably hate it less if it was genuine appreciation, wonder, and admiration.

But no... Either you tryna be funny, or see how nappy or hard it is, or if it's a hair piece.

A funny "touch" happened accidentally.

I had my locs and they were in This big bun like deal in the back of my head.... (my usual work style.)

And a dude ran into my hair.... I still laugh about that one.

It used to annoy the crap out of me, but I just got used to it. It isn't often white people have thick, super curly, light colored hair, and know how to de frizzify it. Sometimes through class people will just sit there and pull on it so it "boings" back, or use my curls as a fake mustache.. It seems everyone I know wants to touch it or random grandmas in grocery stores and I don't like to be rude. When they try to comb through it, now that is soo aggravating, at that point I tell them to stop.

For me, it just depends on how my curls are that day, if there average sure you can TOUCH them, don't go running your fingers through them because then that'll create frizz, which isn't very appealing. If I have an awesome curl day just don't even look at them! Lmao, hahah well yeah but for the most part touching them is okay,
I hate when people touch my hair. Manly because my hair is so fickle just the smallest touch or running a hand through it and I lose my waves and curls so when people try and run their hands through my hair or play with it I get so irritated and try and get away from them as fast as possible.
