a: My hair ~
b: candy corn

What:

"Basically, my hair is like candy corn. It makes me laugh everyday.

Level 1 is my natural hair color, level 2 is the drugstore dye, and level 3 is the combination of the dyes. So throw in the fact that my hair is naturally curly, and you now know more than you've ever wanted to know about my hair. "

a: my hair ~
b: wool

What:

"My hair is nappy. It is coarse and thick. It grows in pencil-sized spirals and tiny crinkles. My hair grows out, not down. It springs from my head like a corona. My hair is like wool. You can't run your fingers through it, nor a comb. It is impenetrable. My hair is rebellious. It resists being smoothed into a neat bun or pony tail. It puffs. Strands escape; they won't be tamed. My hair is nappy. And I love it."

a: my hair ~
b: a mood ring

What:

"I swear, my hair is like a mood ring. On days when I'm stressed, it seems to be particularly voluminous, and when I'm sad, it actually looks like wants to wilt. It makes me feel like I've got a little buddy on top of my head, empathizing with me at all times. "
