The House on Mango Street Chapter 2 - Hairs

Esperanza ponders the hair of all the members in her family, with the fondest sensory recall of her mother's hair. Her Papa's is like a broom, Carlos's thick and straight, Nenny's is slippery, Kiki's is like fur, her own is lazy, while her mother's is like candy circles and smells like fresh bread. She loves the way it curls after being pinned in curlers all day long. Her mother's hair comforts Esperanza, just like the rest of the memories of her family: her father's snoring, the rain outside, and her mother's fresh-smelling, artificially curled hair.
