Today's word is helical which I read on page 61 of Ruined by Reading by Lynne Sharon Schwartz.

Helical is an adjective meaning of, or having the form of, a helix, or spiral. It comes from the Latin word helix, a kind of ivy, spiral, which comes from the Greek word for spiral from the Greek helissein, to turn around.

My sentence: I have straight hair but I always wished it was helical.

Thanks to AtoZ, the anonymous commenter who never fails to contribute a sentence. Anyone else want to join in?
