Do you mind when people touch your hair without asking?
For me, it's okay if my family or very close friends touch my hair. But if some random or friend touches my hair without asking just to see how it feels when it's natural and curly, I get so irritated! I have no idea why, but it just bugs me. My mom says I was always like that. Anyone else?

I don't really care if they touch it, as long as they don't run their fingers through my hair or play with it a lot..

Not particularly, but I'd rather they didn't.

I don't really care, but I always sit there awkwardly and wonder what I'm supposed to do while they play with my hair xP

I don't like when people touch my head. They either pat me like a dog, grab a ponytail/puff, or the shove their hands into the back. I literally dodge people.

There is nothing that drives me more crazy then when people touch my hair!!! Especially when it is wet!!

I hate it but I'm not going to say it.because its not like a total stranger did it but a classmate that I don't really like.they've only touched it when its straight never natural eventhough I wear both in ponytails only.its hard to go natural in school because most girls critize me about it.and when I do flat iron they say comments like 'oh the roots still nappy' or 'is that a weave,nah the roots jus nappy'.....I feel more comfortable with my hair natural and straight when I'm outside of school because I don't feel judged.the only reason I ever started flat ironning is because I was teased by one girl that was a year younger than me in middle school!she would say I need to fix my hair and that I'm ugly and I'm a bi**h...but now I care less that my peers want me to flat iron so I only do it once a month for trimming.I can't wait to go to college whoo!class of '13...also am I the only one that experiences black guys don't hit on you unless your hair is straightened?

Yay class of '13 too ;)
I went natural about three weeks ago. I got frustrated and tired with the constant flat ironing. Now, I'm absolutely in love with my curls! So a few day after, some(not so close) friend of mine just reached out and touched my hair when we were sitting in home room. It was still a little wet since I wet it that morning. I turned around and asked her not to touch my hair and she got a little attitude. The next time, I was walking out of the lunchroom talking with my friend and this girl I'm friends with walked up behind me and patted my head to see what it felt like. I got annoyed. It's like a lot of these people feel the need to touch my hair to see what "black people curls" feel like. Both of the girls, white and hispanic, have beautiful hair also but I don't pat their head just to see what it feels like with out asking. That's just weird. They just don't get it. It's frustrating.

Same here. Usually when people at school touch it, they do it ever so gently :)

i love when people touch my hair. They realize how soft it is and then we go off on long conversations about hair. I should mention that i LOVE to talk about hair

jaybabeex3 12-14-2011 10:32 PM

I don't mind, as long as it's someone I know.

I am okay with it when they are acquaintances at the most, anymore stranger than that and it is awkward.
I love when some people pet my head, it feels nice.. but some people have greasy hands and the mess up my hair.

CurlyTee21 12-17-2011 12:22 AM

I hate when ppl touch my hair when it's curly because my hair will get so frizzy and HUGE when it's touched too much.. But I loveeeee when ppl touch my hair when it's straight.. Everyone that knows me knows I don't like my hair touched when it's curly so they usually don't touch it. If someone I don't know tries to touch my curls I just pull away hella fast..

Yep, same here! My hair is off-limits! I can't stand it when people touch me OR my hair.

I LOVE when people mess with my hair but it depends on who it is. If it's a friend or someone in my family it's okay but I had this weird guy touch it the other day and I flipped out and told him I hate when people touch my hair... Yeah so kinda is my final answer. Lol.

It drives me crazy when people touch my hair. It is okay if a family member does it really quick but when strangers or classmates do it I can not stand it. The worst is when the kid that sits behind you twirls your curls or yanks on them

I usually don't mind as long as they're gentle and don't mess it up! When its a cute guy I DEFINITElY don't mind if they play with it;) lol

I hate it unless it's someone I know really well (sister, BFF......) except my mum because that hurts :/ (she always wears loads of rings)
