Curly gravity-defying natural hair is often seen as a fascination in Western societies. It acts as a magnet, attracting curious hands from all corners. The intrigue factor of this hair type is prominently due to the exotic nature in which black bodies are viewed. It is also derived from the fact that natural hair receives very little visibility in mainstream media. Black women are often portrayed as having relaxed hair, straight weaves or braids. Though natural hair is starting to take up space in the media, black people still have to deal with total strangers touching their hair out of curiosity.
