( CNN) The voices in Keris Myrick’s head are “in the kitchen, ” she says.

She’s not referring to where food is cooked. The word “kitchen, ” she said, is how many black women describe the nape of the neck “where our hair is curly and wavy; some people might use the term ‘kinky.'”

“The hair might appear very pretty on top, but underneath, it could be a frizzy mess — and that’s where the voices reside, ” she said. “They’re not up front bothering me or taking my attention away. They simply hang out in that frizzy place.”
