Hair is kind of a touchy subject for Black people, and you better keep your hands off of it!
There are just some things you don’t do, and touching a Black woman’s hair is one of them. Only a chosen few get to do it. Why? Because it takes a particular cocktail of potions, special tools and the patience of a saint to get it just right! There’s a lot invested in Black hair, so don’t touch it. Ever.
For some Black people, having their hair touched by random people can feel a little degrading, but it’s mostly a personal space thing. This episode of the YouTube series “Try This Instead” can give everyone a few pointers on how to avoid committing this social sin.
