As you may or may not know, I have
dense puff ball I mean natural hair,( I wear weaves about 50%-60% of the time) but none the less I to like to educate myself on the proper care of this fro below the silky treschic tresses I am sporting. So on to the book review:
I think this was a great book for any spectrum of natural hair, whether your transitioning,natural and still figuring it out, or a veteran in the game and looking for some new tips or maybe to try something new. It was great for me because it wasn’t just for your die hard crunchy granola head natural who wouldn’t dare touch their hair with anything that isn’t from the earth, but had something for those of us who like to shave our one side or throw in a funky color, Nikki even advocated wearing weaves*Falls off my sofa*!!!
What sets the book apart from the curlynikki.com website is that everything is perfectly laid out with a built in dictionary for natural speak such as TWAs (teeny weanie afro’s) and it also feature excerpts and passages from other natural bloggers/ vloggers
I really loved the fact that they gave your step by step pictorial styling instructions and she even dedicated a section on how to to henna your hair. It also featured chapters to inspire you and your children how to love your hair. At the end of the book it has a hair product guide that gave great product recommendations for every budgets
Things I’ll definitely be trying post weave: Henna glazing,trying a funky scarf style, and definitely hitting up some of her featured bloggers and naturalistas websites.
I definitely recommend this book and I put my seal of approval on this read. Get your copy at amazon.com and it’s only $8.90
