Can I touch your Hair?



The infamous question. How do you feel when people ask you this? Personally, I don't like it. I don't like being touched in general and definitely not my hair. I've never put my hair on any sort of pedestal I just don't want someone else's fingers running through my puff. What is your response when asked the question," Can I touch your hair?" What about any other questions that can be borderline offensive when it comes to your locks?

When i first went natural my guy friend who is white asked me to touch my hair, hes like obsessed with natural hair lol. it didnt nessasarily offend me, i think i was just like shocked or something. idk, maybe it will offend me if somebody asks me in a sarcastic way...

When my hair was relaxed, it was untouchable for sure. But as a new natural, I ask this so I apologize to anyone I offended, lol. It’s just out of curiosity. (Your pic is hilarious—that’s the way I felt when I was pregnant and random people tried to touch my belly!)
