As a natural, I know the horror that can be wash day. You try your best to avoid it, but you can only wear your hair in a bun or a hat/beanie for so long. It’s the day you must suspend all other activities to devote to the well-being of your hair. That day you try those natural hairstyles you see on Youtube and then cry when they don’t work out. The day you pray to black Jesus, hoping he can bless your follicles. In honor of my recent wash day, here are nine gifs that describe every Sunday for me.
