"Can I touch your hair?"

Ever want to ask another natural if you can? You thought this was a post about folks wanting to touch my hair, didn't you? Fooled ya! :P

But seriously, have you seen a natural(or multiple naturals) and found yourself in complete awe of their hair; wanting to break one of the cardinal rules concerning touching(or NOT touching)natural hair? I know I did today. I had to have encountered more than 10 naturals, all ranging from twa's to bigger or longer curls and just finding myself wanting to just reach out an well......touch. Now, we all know that's a no-no, but that doesn't stop us from wanting to sometimes.

I guess the consolation of not being able to cop a feel(wow...that sounds perverted, lol), is seeing so many ladies embracing their natural beauty. Encouraging and inspiring. :)

I thouhgt I was the only one that felt this way. I was at the African American Culture Festival in Raleigh, NC this past weekend and there were sooooo many naturals. It made me feel so good to be around other naturals, especially since where I'm from I'm one of few. I saw hair that I seriously wanted to cuddle with! Also it made me feel good to hear, "I love your hair"...that never hurts...^_^
