Hair it is a part of who we are and our identity. It aggravates us, comforts us, and sometimes shields us from the elements. It is after one of those days I look forward to is stepping into a steamy shower and washing my hair.
The few minutes in the shower is my own time to clear my thoughts, relax my muscles, and wash away the negativity of the day. I look forward to lathering the shampoo into my hair and inhaling the fragrant scent that wraps its blanket around me with comfort.
I then wait letting the conditioner repair and untangle the wavy mess that is my hair. It is by untangling the mess with ease which gives me a small sense of control in the tornado that has swept through my day.
It is in that silent moment I stretch and breath trying to regain a minute of clarity. As the moment passes I slowly rinse with my thoughts running forward thinking tomorrow will be a much better day.
I know in the next wild moments of life when my hair is blowing in the wind and there is no answers that I will get a fragrant scent that sweeps across my face. It is that scent that comforts me and lets me know it will all be okay.
