I get asked this question all.the.time. I do take it as a compliment but there's a personal space bubble I'd like to address. First and foremost the question I get "Is your hair real?" I don't mind usually but I have had people pet my hair, tug on my hair (to see if it's extensions), examine my scalp closely by hovering around my face, etc.

Folks, my hair is real. It's as real as real can be. My family has a long lineage of thick massive amounts of hair and it's real. Need further proof? Here it is.

 

It goes without saying that sometimes we're all too focused on others appearances, compliments are super sweet but when it invades someone's personal space - like touching a pregnant woman's belly for example, that's when it goes too far. Please don't pet my hair and other people's hair unless they're totally okay with it.
