The work aims to interrogate some of the struggles that black women with natural hair have to go through. Thinking of particular instances where the artist would casually be walking and someone would stick their hand in her hair, so as to feel the texture. In thinking through the practices of texturizing and relaxing, as well as the many smells associated with the products, the artist explored other ways of softening hair. That is where the fabric softener comes in, with the popular trademark ‘soft as a mother’s touch’ by the brand Sta Soft in mind; the artist pours the fabric softener on her hair in an attempt to soften the hair. However, the hair rejects the product and resists.
