"그녀의 머리카락은 검어요."
Translation:Her hair is black.
Anyone know what 카락 translates? I've only ever seen 머리 alone used for head and hair
카락 etymologically originated from '가락', which means a thin and long material like threads. '머리' means 'head', but it can mean 'hair', too. '머리카락' means 'hair' only.
The pattern is intuitive if you think about slender extensions of your body all as a kind of 가락:
- 손가락: fingers
- 발가락: toes
