Is your hair long and straight? Or short and curly? Or perhaps it’s frizzy curly with lots of bounce and knots? Whatever your hair, there is a special treatment to make sure it’s clean, healthy, and untangled. It’s important to make sure the hair is really wet before rubbing in the shampoo that’s right for your hair. A little girl with lots of bounce and knots and frizzy curls needs a good rinse, a good squeeze (to take care of the “juicy curls”), and some special conditioner to tame it and help ease out more knots. When drying, perhaps a towel isn’t the best idea as it only adds static – try using a cotton tee instead.
Jessica F. Norwood’s picture book story, Your Hair is Magic: Wash Day, is a sweet story, one in a series of books that focus on personal hygiene and taking good care of oneself. Told in rhyming verse with colorful illustrations, the plot follows one little girl through her hair-washing ritual. The language is simple and the instructions are clear and provide helpful advice, especially for those with frizzy curly, bouncy, knotty hair like the girl in the story. The author makes the ritual entertaining and, at times, humorous. The important message is about self-care and building confidence in one’s body, and, in this case, with one’s unique type of hair. The story is very realistic, as the little girl shares her hair washing routine with young readers. The idea is to make daily care rituals part of the magic of being alive.
