As to why this guy has puff balls floating around his head - um, I started drawing a space princess who then turned into a guy in a suit. He likes them. He has little pet names for them and they talk to him in high-pitched voices and make it hard for him to work. He will one day run a large conglomerate and no one will ever question why they are there.
(FYI: "natural hair" in this context is Black hair sans a perm, process, pressing, braiding or weave. There's a lot of variety in African-American hair in terms of texture and tightness of curl.)
