Indian dream

August 2, 2010

My auntie always used Johnsons baby oil on her daughter’s hair. Summer had the hair i dreamed of. Sleek black, loose ringlets that glistened (probably with the heavy oil lubrication, still…). She was born when I was 8. We looked similar, bar her Indian ‘cooley hair’ and my afro mess. I always felt hard done by. We were from the same family, so why wasn’t my hair good?
