I do my own hair but I hate telling people because they assume that I do everybodys hair, I don't. I only like doing my own unless I feel sorry for you.

Don't feel like making a new thread so I'll ask this here...

I've been meaning to ask this for awhile but do you guys feel some type of way about other Black women coming up to you either touching your hair or asking you questions about your hair... in public?

Like...

Omg! You're hair's so pretty! Is it yours?
How did you get that hairstyle?


This has always bothered me, as it is very tacky and rude. I think the general consensus among Black women must be that we are Black women therefore we have a sisterhood, a camaraderie, between us from the jump. Therefore, we can ask these (what I perceive to be) very personal questions in a public forum.

While that's all fine and dandy, I still think there needs to be understanding of public etiquette. How can I tell these women absolutely nothing about me without coming off as a b*tch?

See, I think that's ignorant on her part. I'm not going to get butt hurt because I went somewhere and didn't enjoy it but someone else did. You never know if someone else has the hookup, etc. Experiences are always going to be different.

Asking politely has never bothered me.

Asking while giving me the stank face will give you the answer you weren't looking for.

Touching is just plain rude and disrespectful. You wouldn't think to grab a chick's boobs and be like "omergerd...they look so good, are these real?!". Or would you grab a woman's ass and ask that question followed by "hey do you take suppliments or is that what God gave you?" So, grabbing someone's hair, or digging your face into their head to look for grids/tracks is just ridiculous.

It only bothers me they want to "check" if it's really my hair by digging their fingers in my hair...after I said yes it is mine Confused I wanted to slap a couple women for doing this. I think that is sooooo rude!!

Unquestionably we do, from jump.  For example, why else would we be here?

Somebody had a posted a youtube video of a girl talk about women would come up to her and touch  virgin weave and how rude and ghetto the women can be. So yes that is rude for other women to touch your hair without asking.

When black ppl do I don't mind
In Walmart this black lady shouted to me across the aisle really loud and asked me was the top of my hair mine.
I shouted back " no mam"
She hollered back that it looked real nice and I almost fooled her.
We finally met on the middle so we didn't have to holler and I told her thank you
