My mom used to say that my hair looked like a bird’s nest, but I disagree. I think it’s more like Medusa’s snaky hairdo.
When I get out of the bathroom my hair becomes a tangled horrible mess, but once I comb it, it becomes straight. Age changed the unruly nature of my hair. It became more tame, but like a mermaid who has pretty legs but turns scaly with a drop of water, my hair springs back to its Medusa past every time it interacts with water.
