Look, but do not touch, my awesome fro – Article in Winnipeg Free Press

A fitting title for a growing phenomenon: “Look, but do not touch, my awesome fro”. What you may or may not say when someone lays hands on your natural hair. It may be your co-worker, your classmate, your next-door neighbor, or that extra friendly TSA agent. Chances are, if you are a natural with locs of envy, someone has asked (or tried) to touch your hair. Like many over the holiday season, my hair (and body) were searched by a very thorough TSA agent.

In this article in the Winnipeg Free Press, Winnipeg personality and comedian Aisha Alfa writes about her experiences since going natural a little over a year ago.
