    Really we trying to keep our style looking good for them long flights you think we got time to be sticking shit in out natural hair. We trying to make sure The oil stays on our hair. We worried about what the weather is going to do when we go. Get the people you really suppose to be looking for. Leave us and out naturally hair alone.

    Two women have been caught smuggling drugs in their hair. One had dreads the other had weave. I definitely don’t think that a few bad apples should spoil the bunch though.

    After walking through the X-Ray detector, which seems to show every bone in your body, I would think hidden hair objects would show. Still, I was asked for allowance of a hair search. Get more advanced machines, perhaps?

    It’s frustrating. If TSA must search my hair, and they have for two of four flights, I just wish it could be with fresh gloves….and not the gloves just used to pat down some one else. One pair of gloves to pat down clothing on other people – I understand. However, my hair is not clothing, it is skin! A “used” pair of gloves on my skin is unsanitary and totally not hygienic!
