“More Of What Others Are Saying About This Book…”

“…There is something very different about Kamau and Janice’s work.”
I’ve read other authors’ books about Black hair but there is something very different about Kamau and Janice's work. Of all the writers I have read, they stand out as the best at breaking down the critical issues of Black hairstyles into easy to understand language that anyone can understand.

“For the first time in my life my hair and I are friends.”
Thank you for writing this book! At first I was reticent and realized that I was resisting thinking about hair as an issue. My opinion, based on my own experience, is that hair for women of African descent is an issue of self esteem and that at its real foundation, hair is an issue of safety and survival…for the first time in my life my hair and I are friends. It is wash and go. My scalp is healthy. I am trying to get the rest of my life as focused and hassle free.

“Instills pride in having Black hair”
This book not only gives the history of present beliefs about Black hair but also promotes and instills pride in having Black hair, being proud of oneself and heritage and wearing black hair naturally and proudly.

—Sharon Stafford— St. Clair Shores, MI

“After reading this book, I found myself staring at everyone…”
I personally, being white, have not given much thought to the matter of African hair…but it was obvious to me that the material contained in this informative book was well researched. Also evident, is the compassion of the authors towards the healing of such a sensitive subject. After reading this book, I found myself staring at everyone carefully; studying their hair.

This book has confirmed some of my worries that I have chosen to ignore for the sake of vanity. It has made me take a hard and close look at what I am doing to my hair and scalp.
