Do You Like It When People Play With Your Hair?

With all the barrettes, scrunchies, banana, and butterfly clips we could gather, my BFF and I took turns seeing who could create the craziest hairstyle as kids. Although it's rare I slow down enough to smell the Salon Selectives these days (ha), there's still something refreshing about playing at-home beauty shop.

I know I'm not the only one who spent childhood afternoons this way and, I'm not embarrassed to admit, it can still be a fun way to pass the time while watching movies with my mom or sister when I'm home for vacation. Although nowadays we focus on wild updos and other how-tos that are hard to re-create all alone, do you still like people (read: nonprofessionals) doing your hair?

If there is one thing other than food that I get actual, serious cravings for, it's getting my hair played with!!

When I was in middle school, some kid put bubblegum in my hair under the guise of admiring it. Since then, I only let trusted girlfriends (and occasional younger cousins) touch my locks.

I pretty much only let my sister play with my hair.

No! My curly hair cannot be "played" with after it's fixed. It will get so tangled and gnarly. Ever since I was a kid, people play with my hair without asking. Why!??!

I don't like anyone messing with my hair. Ever.It's absolutely not relaxing for me! lol. But maybe that's because my hair gets tangled easily, and other people playing with my hair/styling my hair usually results in chunks of hair being ripped from my scalp. lol.

I've never liked having my hair played with, even since I was a little kid. I would never let my mom do my hair, or I was never very happy about it. I've recently figured that for me it's kind of a more intimate thing, so in my head I guess I wouldn't mind if a guy I was dating was playing with it, but I donno. I'm a little weird. :)

I didn't know there were people who didn't like their hair played with ever! I can see when you've just gotten it done or when you've just showered and you don't want it getting greasy, but you dont like it EVER? That's new to me, having my hair brushed or played with is one of my favorite things:)!

My hair is hip-length, and while I don't mind if it's touched, I don't like having it styled in any way by other people because they don't know HOW to do it. Most people don't know how to work with hair longer than bra strap length, and even something as simple as brushing is painful and causes unnecessary damage. Sometimes even professional hairdressers can't comb my hair properly. There's no way I'd allow an amateur near my hair unless her own is waist-length or longer.

It depends on who. Friends, loved ones, and hairdresser -- okay. Strangers or acquaintances -- no.

Agree with Jessiebanana, plus ppl touching my hair makes me self concious for some reason :s maybe because I'm stressing about how its going to look afterwards? Anyway if I'm not bothered by it then I usually find it extremely relaxing
