    "трафик" sounds the same as "traffic" in English. It must be just a word from English language. Russian also has a lot of words from French.

    "я чешу по волосам" - this actually means "I scratch my hair"

    To say "run my fingers through my hair", you would say something like, "Я провожу пальцами по волосам"

    OK. Though, in Russian, we usually don’t use свой when speaking about own body parts or cloths.
    I scratch my nose. — Я чешу нос.
    I put my hand in my pocket. — Я сунул руку в карман.

    As Wise already said, «Я провожу пальцами по волосам».
    Or, maybe, «Я расчёсываюсь пальцами» (?)

    OK.

    Я не знаю, что я об этом чувствую.
    Or, maybe:
    Я не знаю, что я чувствую по этому поводу.

    OK.

    OK. Again, you can omit своё here.

    Quote Originally Posted by grafrich View Post

    Я быстро чешу ухо.
    This sentence sounds better in the past tense:
    Я быстро почесал ухо.
