“You look a lot like him.”
“Well, yeah, but-”
“And you have the same ridiculous hair.”
“Can we just shake hands?”

“Generally, the first thing they do is let go.”

deadens the leaden thump of a bullet: in winter, it is a warm nightcap; in summer,
a cooling fan of feathers.
37. I don’t advise a haircut, man. All hairdressers are in the employment of the government. Hairs are your aerials. They pick up signals from the cosmos, and transmit them directly into the brain. This is the reason bald-headed men are uptight.

47. Her hair was a glory of tendrils for the snaring of husbands.
48. No one likes it, apart from blind people, and I’m sure even they can sense it’s profound ugliness as it passes by.

I could feel the sweat cooling on her forearms and smell a trace of apples in her hair.

58. Do not make children cross-eyed, by having hair hang about their foreheads, where they see it continually.
59. Have you seen that Chris Rock movie about hair?’ No, I haven’t seen that Chris Rock movie about hair. I don’t need to see a Chris Rock movie about black hair when I have my own head of black hair for reference. But if I had $1 for every white person who has asked me if I’ve seen that movie and then proceeded to educate me on the problems with my own damn hair and the black hair industry I’d have enough money to keep myself in Indian Remy for life.
