About the book:
Do you love your natural hair?
In this new book some of the world’s most inspiring black women tell us about their attitudes to, and struggles with, their crowning glory. Kinky, wavy, straight or curly, this book will help you celebrate your natural beauty, however you choose to style your hair.
With an overview of the politics and history of black hair, the book explores how black hairstyles have played a part in the fight for social justice and the promotion of black culture while inspiring us to challenge outdated notions of beauty, gender and sexuality for young women and girls everywhere.
The power is in our hair. And we’ve come to tell the world what ours can do!
Contains over 30 exclusive interviews with Black women from 18 to 80+ speaking candidly about their hair journeys.
