Wet hair

I remember the shampoo wouldn’t lather. I remember going to school with wet hair. At morning break it still wasn’t dry, it looked greasy, and I realised I must have used conditioner. So I stood in the playground toilets and tried to rinse it out. I remember I didn’t want to tell anyone and I felt very alone. If you had asked me my age I would have said 13? But those toilets were at Primary School, so I must have been only 9 or 10. I don’t know why I remember that this morning.
