Wash Day
sesame street

It's Wash Day today! It's a special time Gabrielle spends time with her Auntie Kayla, as she washes Gabrielle's hair. First, Auntie Kayla combs out Gabrielle's hair and puts shampoo. Next, Auntie Kayla uses warm water to rinse out the shampoo and puts conditioner to make Gabrielle's hair feel super soft and slippery. Then, a big comb is used to detangle and get out all the knots in Gabrielle's curls. For bath time, Auntie twists her hair up in a shower cap. After rinsing out the hair, it gets detangled one more time. Then she puts avocado oil and the leave-in conditioner to make Gabrielle's hair softer and smoother. Finally, Gabrielle picks out a style for her hair that can do so many different things afro, ponytail, box braids, or afro puffs! Wash Day is really special to Gabrielle and her family.

About Sesame Street:

SESAME STREET has garnered more than 100 awards, including 101 Emmys, two Peabodys, four Parents' Choice Awards and an Action for Children's Television Special Achievement Award.

The series delivers academic and social education that prepares kids for grade school.

Since its premiere, the show's base curriculum has been set by academic research on preschoolers.

Encore episodes focus on music and art and how these tools can be used to develop the whole child - the cognitive, social, emotional and physical attributes.

In addition, "Elmo's World," which looks at the world through the eyes of a three-year-old, continues as a featured segment.

Themes include birthdays, pets, teeth, families, games and more.
