My clip ins show up. I was stopped in Denmark and Norway. I just tell the lady the truth, that metal clops hold my extensions in. It doesn't bother me.

AS long as they take me to the side, I'm all for it! Just don't be too embarrassed, it happens to everyone.

I think my underwire bra set the scanner off when I was headed to Houston in October.  That resulted in a patdown.  The TSA agent was hispanic and very respectful of my personal space.  She ran her hands over my fresh weave and I was happy to report no lumps anywhere.  LOL

I'd rather be weave checked if that increases my safety.Clap Go TSA....

You are but ONE of the people working at the airport.
To say that these ladies complaints about being profiled aren't warranted because YOU
pat down everyone isn't fair, because not all workers of TSA are going to pat down everyone.
I will say the one time my hair was pat down, the white women in front of me or behind me were
NOT. So yes there is some profiling going on. Just like my friend who is Middle Eastern "looking" & her family can not peacefully make it through the airport without going through extra security checks. & once they've made it through security since they've been pulled aside you have all the other passengers looking at them wondering "why they were pulled aside in the first place" & act like they are the next big terror threat. Too bad they're from Guyana with 0 ties to anyone in the Middle East.



The hell you talking about. For one I'm talking about the body scanner if the scanner high lights a part it get patted down. And if you come through the airport with voluminous headwear or head dressing it get patted down. Hats anything I guess white men from Texas with cowboy hats is profiled to or how about the packers fan with a baseball hat on is profiled too.. people exaggerate sh*t. Example just Friday I'm working the body scanner black lady come through with a hat with studs on it guess what the scanner highlighted it I had to pat it down she goes on this profiling mess asking why some Asian man who had a fitted skull cap on didn't get it guess what she don't what he got cause he was walking away.

My weave was recently checked going through the Milwaukee airport. I was running a little behind schedule and rushing to put my shoes back on and grab my things. TSA stopped me and I thought to myself "oh crap they about to search my bag". Turns out she just wanted to feel my hair. I immediately thought about the other post that I had read here on BHM about having your weave checked at the airport. So I gave her a show. My weave was about 6weeks old and lifting a little in the back so I pulled up my long hair and exposed some naps and a few raggedy loose braids in the back of my head. She was like okay! okay! okay! I laughed so hard thinking to myself "that's what yo azz get". I thank the member who started the other post, otherwise I would have been offended had I not have known that this is what they do now.
