People touching my hair !

My hair looks good when I go out of my house but looks really frizzy when i go back home . Humidity ? No. People touch my hair without asking me ? yes ! Every time I go for shopping more than 10 people "comb" my hair with their fingers . And that drives me crazy.. Do you have same problems ?

    Touching hair doesn't mean clawing someone.

    Aurora, first of all, I love your curls. As for the touching my hair part, I don't get that but that would annoy the hell out of me.

    Yes, when they try it I just say don't touch it you'll only make it frizz.

    I know right! I was at a football game the other day and the guys behind me kept messing with my hair! At one point I felt one of their hands buried in my hair!

    I absolutely HATE when people touch my hair when it actually looks good.. They compliment it, and then they touch it and often times mess it up. I know their just trying to be nice and I so completely appreciate what they say, but I put a lot of effort in my hair to make it nice, I just hate when it gets messed up. There's a song I heard that said "I like your curly hair, please don't touch."

    Exactly. Lol

    Was watching a hair program on the weekend - it's still available on iPlayer - in the 70s and 80s lots of White people were getting perms in response to Black people having afros. So I guess older people don't have the need to grab curly hair as they had a perm themselves or had a close family member who did.

    Children will grab or touch hair regardless of how you have it styled just out of curiosity.

    And with adults under 35 it depends how drunk they are.

    I absolutely HATE this. When I went to Germany in high school, I was one of the only people "of color" on the trip. All of the German students were so excited that they would ask me questions and automatically touch my hair. It was so maddening! I would have thought it was a culture thing, but people do it here too.

    Nobody touches my hair except my boyfriend. Until I went to church on Christmas Eve. One of the ladies I knew well when I was younger (and straight hair) saw my hair and asked if it was natural, then proceeded to touch and fluff my hair from underneath. I cringed at every second of it!!!

    It's like.. have you not seen curly hair before?

    Last night I went out for new year's eve. At the end of the night, some really drunk guy basically trapped me in a bear hug and noogied the top/side of my head with his head and wouldn't stop. This was some guy I don't even know. He was with a friend of mine. ugh!!! why do people think this is ok? I don't go around touching people I don't know.

    Not as much as before. Thank goodness!

    I think they're getting the memo finally. Lol. Or maybe it is all of the articles (Buzzfeed) on what not to say/do to a curly haired person. :mrgreen:

    I used to have this problem when I was younger and I was tender headed so it drove me insane!! :cussing:

    Now that I'm older I guess I get more respect...besides couldn't it be considered assault or something! lol.

    My fiance loves his head to be rubbed and in the begining of our relationship he assumed I did too...I had to break that down to him real quick. It's not so bad if we are in for the night and laying down watching TV and just relaxing.

    I do however, love for my stylist to rub my hair when she washes it. I try massaging my scalp like they do but it's NEVER the same. :sad3:

    I flat-out tell them not to touch me and retort, "this isn't a petting zoo!"

    The only people who are allowed to touch it are friends, SO or a stylist. Everyone else back the f off!

    Oh my god, I cannot make it through one period at school without at least 8 people raking through my hair. Like, CAN YOU NOT, PLEASE? I have angered the beast enough already, I'd appreciate for you to not continue to irritate it.
  • NeirelleNeirelle Posts: 126Registered Users
    This just happened to me today..i don't really mind as long as they ask...but i don't get the point of touching my hair?Is it to check if its real?

    I'm actually one of those folks who like my head and hair to be rubbed/touched/whatever but I don't want my hair messed up during the day. In our culture, it's considered very, very rude to touch the head of another person unless you're a family member or a lover (and in many cultures, touching the head is taboo); what's wrong with these people, anyway?
    [SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]

    I'm definitely a "curly" 2c. Sometimes curly and sometimes just wavy upper layer with a ringlety under layer. My hair has been thick and coarse since birth. Strawberry blonde in color that can and does change depending on the type and amount of light.


    All in all, I'm happy with my hair type but almost for sure think yours is prettier. :)
