The House on Mango Street Chapter 2 Summary

Hairs

  • Everyone in the narrator's family has different hair – she describes Papa's, her own, Carlos', Nenny's, and Kiki's.
  • But the narrator likes her mother's hair the best – it's all done up in pincurls and smells like warm bread. The smell of her mother's hair makes the narrator feel safe.
