Trial and Error: Airport Hair

Ladies and Gentlemen! This photo was taken somewhere in the 5am hour. I was in the Orlando airport just past security and I am making this face because this is the first occurrence where my hair was PATTED DOWN! I heard rumors of this happening once you went natural but I never expected it to happen to me. It caught me off guard and I truly believe the TSA lady was just as uncomfortable about the situation as I was. So as a future FYI: this puff is not a good airport style. Unless you want to slow down your process and have latex in your fro.
What are your natural hair stories from the airport?
