An incredible and extremely relatable article. Being mixed race myself, I have had to endure strangers running their fingers through my hair, sometimes, without persmission. I hate it. Although, I am pleased to say that a close friend finds doing the same thing very relaxing; it relaxes me too. Thank you so much for this article. It is up there with my favourites!
