Galaxies of Hair

Here are some very interesting watercolors inspired by black women's hair.

While mine is not black, it is loosely nappy, and I can really relate to the descriptions of hair as a galaxy, a cloud, a wild and lively thing unto itself.  Mine can tie and untie knots, pick things up and throw them, break confinements.  I imagine it is all the more so for people whose hair is even nappier.

Some things aren't really meant to be tamed.
