    For the sake of my sanity i had to decide to embrace it and now it doesn’t bother me anymore. It’s actually helped me bond better with some of my patient. Sometimes i offer a one time touch and feel to some of the sweetest ones.
    I’m going to be wearing a braided wig next week so i’m already preparing myself for the many questions i will have to answer.

    I love this article. For me touching ones hair withou permission is disrespectful. In many parts of asia you can’t touch someone’s hair unless that person is a kid. Permission is needed to touch an adult’s hair. Back to Africa and our supertitious beliefs. There are some parts of our society where it is believed that some individuals touch ones hair with bad hands. What do i mean, they touch to bewitch it. Soon the hair breaks down n you even lose hair. I think if someone is not so close to you stop touching their hair. Just My view.

    Asides from crazy superstitions, its only polite to ask for permission to touch someone’s hair…When my natural hair is out, people stare , only the bold ones give compliments and the really bold ones ask to touch n feel my hair texture. I smile and let them, some might be considering to transition so this kinda encourages them..
    Zara, this something I don’t think you can control; people wanna touch your hair, let them or smile n give a chessy excuse( like a headache).
    BTW, the worst is when I visit a saloon, that gets so awkward…you cant say no.
