My hair plays a pretty reliable role in my life. I have always been able to count on my hair lying flat, holding a curl, and falling right back into place, no matter how I mess with it. That's why I don't mind when people touch my hair. In fact, I love when people play with my hair. It feels good. It's like a massage. I have a strong attachment to my hair. If I ever cut it really short, I would feel a significant sense of loss because my hair is part of what makes me feel pretty.
