In case you haven’t heard of it yet, the You Can Touch My Hair interactive art exhibit in New York City this past weekend offered New Yorkers the chance to touch Black women’s hair and ask questions about it. There were women there with natural, relaxed, weaved and braided hair brandishing signs that read “You Can Touch My Hair.”

Curious New Yorkers obviously took the chance to run their fingers through the women’s glorious manes, while, in protest, another group of sisters showed up with signs that read “I don’t know where your hands have been” and simply, “You cannot touch my hair.”
The exhibition, and the ongoing debate surrounding it has us wondering what kind of hair rules you, dear reader, employ. What lines can no one one, even your boo, cross when it comes to you hurr? Share your thoughts and comments with us below.
