Hey guys!! So Solange Knowles came out with a new song called “Don’t Touch My Hair” and after listening to the song, I thought it was beautifully written and said. As a black woman, my hair texture is curly and kinky so when I have my hair out other people will stare and ask if they can touch it. I find it offensive because the reason they ask is to say “Wow how do you get your hair like that?,” “I wish my hair did that.,” or “Wow your hair is so fluffy.” It makes me feel like an animal that can be pet on command. It’s weird because no one really asks to touch other races hair like that, it’s usually black women because the way our hair falls is different. It’s appealing to others and it’s intriguing which I understand but you don’t need to touch it in a vigorous way by pulling, grabbing or pressing. There is a human attached to this hair you seek to touch and people forget that.
