    Default Is your hair real

    Iím amazed at how many times Iíve been asked this question over the last few years. Last year I even had a stranger yank my braid which hurt a little after asking me if itís real. Is natural long hair really that uncommon? Do people ask you if your hair is real?

    Someone at one time yanked my hair to see if it was a wig. It was fiery red henna hair back then. I'm still thinking, and what if it were a wig, would you have risked embarrassing me in front of other people? Still bothers me to this day.

    Yes, I get that question asked towards me all of the time, and people always yank or pull on it to see if it's real or not, and that yanking and pulling hurts. It's really annoying.

    Never while down but when it was shorter I wore a messy bun a lot and I had someone ask me where I got my cute bun from. It confused me until they explained that you can buy 'hair scrunchies' to wrap around your natural hair. She thought mine was fake because my bun is so much lighter than my scalp due to growing out heavy bleach.

    I havenít experienced it myself but Iíve certainly heard of it happening. For people that try to pull it though, i always think, what was their game plan? Either they pull off the personís wig and look like an absolute jerk, or they pull on their real hair, which hurts them and also makes them look like an absolute jerk. Thereís no win condition. Keep your hands to yourself!

    Touching no. Asking yes. It happens when I have my hair loose or braided.

    I get this a lot. More often when I wear it up.

    I think hair extensions are so common now that people want to know if our hair is due to our patience or pocket book!

    I cannot imagine walking up to someone and touching their hair let alone YANKING it? Why do these people feel so entitled? What do they expect to happen? I am surprised none of you have turned around and whacked them because I think that is the only worthy response!!
