Good books for naturals!
If you know me, then you know I love to curl up with a good book! As Fall approaches I get an even bigger urge to climb in a comfy chair, make a hot cup of tea and fall in love with a book! Books not only are entertaining but they are so rich in information they are invaluable. There are two books in particular that have helped me while on my natural hair journey! If you get a chance please stop by your local bookstore or library and pick them up. Both of them offer vital information in learning how to properly take care of your hair and grow it to great lengths.
The first book is Ultra Black Hair Growth II. This book is authored by Cathy Howse who is an expert on growing hair to great lengths. Her book doesn't have a selfish agenda and she backs up her information by scientific data. This book is what got me interested in PH balance and what it has to do with the health of our hair. I read this book in almost one setting, it's just that easy to read. You can find this book at any major book retail store or of course at Amazon.com.
The next book is by a fellow blogger, Chicoro. The name of her book is Grow It. I was hooked just by the title, but by digging into the book more, I saw this sister had some wonderful tips on caring for natural hair. She is very big on protecting the hair and being gentle with the hair. She has herself grown her own hair to waist length so I would consider her a "hair-expert"! The information in her book made me change my regimen and really start thinking more about protective styling!
So run, don't walk, to your nearest book store and pick these two books up. It doesn't hurt to have them in your personal library! I often refer back to these books for a refresher and to make sure I'm on track! I hope you find these books as valuable as I do. Happy reading and happy growing!
