Vaginal fluids in hair

Hello. I was fingered earlier today and afterwards the person grabbed my hair without washing their hands afterwards. I'm know I had a lot of vaginal discharge come out of me seeing I was fingered. I got home but slept instead of taking a shower. I slept for 4 hours and someone then touched my hair without me being able to tell them it was dirty. They then went on to eat and go to the bathroom. Could I have given them HIV when they grabbed my hair?

Why not?
As u said u had slept for four hours before some one had touched your hair. HIV is very fragile it will be dead
with in minutes once it was exposed to atmosphere. And other thing u cannot get HIV by eating it
Calm down leave all this **** and move on
This answers all of your HIV questions, and if you can think of any more just reread about the 3. You had zero risk therefore  testing is irrelevant to your situation because you had zero risk. HIV is a fragile virus, which is instantly inactivated in air and also in saliva which means it is effectively dead so it can't infect from touching, external rubbing or oral activities. It doesn't matter if you and they were actively bleeding or had cuts at the time either because the HIV is effectively dead.  
Only 3 adult risks are the following:
1. unprotected penetrating vaginal with a penis
2. unprotected penetrating anal sex with a penis
3. sharing needles that you inject with. These 3 are all you need to know to protect yourself against HIV. The situation you describe is a long way from any of these 3.
Even with blood, lactation, cuts, rashes, burns, etc the air or the saliva does not allow inactivated virus to infect from touching, external rubbing or oral activities. Doctors have calculated the risk from what you describe to be less than that of being hit by a meteor, therefore no one will get HIV from what you did in the next 40 years of your life either. The above HIV science is 40 years old and very well established, so no detail that you can add to your encounter will change it from zero risk.
