Wash Day

Wash Day

 

Use a wide-tooth comb and warm water to part 

the mountains of black coils into manageable sections for detangling. 

 

Light a candle, grab a towel, spread coconut oil for good slip

Put on a movie or long-awaited series.

The mind needs an escape from the repetition of spraying, raking, unlinking, and twisting.

 

Run the water in the kitchen sink until it feels like blankets from the dryer against the skin.

Pour the shampoo into your palm ignoring the quarter-size suggestion on the bottle.

 

Rub you scalp until you are convinced that you love yourself deeply

No hurried motions. You’ve given yourself the entire day for this.

 

Rinse and wrap your hair in a tee-shirt to prevent tangling.

Use a wide-tooth comb and warm water to part

 

The mountains for black coils for deep conditioning.

Use a plastic grocery bag to trap your body heat and activate the conditioner.

Pop some popcorn and dance to your favorite songs for 30 minutes.

 

Run the water in the sink until it feels like blankets from the dryer against the skin.

Rinse your hair and embrace the weight of all that makes you purified.
