About a year ago I mentioned getting my hair loced, well its been over a year now and i'm pretty pleased with the way my hair is looking, i'll post pictures when I get a descent camera that doesn't scream 'battery low" every time I turn it on even when I've just charged it (I needed to rant about that).
A book that has really helped me is titled 'Thank God I'm Natural' written by Harvard graduate Chris Tia Donaldson, the book is packed with lots of fantastic product and routine advice and gorgeous pictures with a variety of natural hairstyles.
Its just nice to finally have a book on natural hair that doesn't patronise you or contradicts itself when it comes to dishing out advise. If you are considering going natural or already wearing your hair in its natural state then you might want a copy of this book, it also comes in handy on one those days where you wake up looking a wee bit like Chewbacca and you don't have a clue what to do with your hair. The book is available in Waterstones.
At the moment my current hair crush is Valerie June, I guess Miss June has always been my hair crush, I went on a bit about her in that previous post, she's the singer-song writer, banjo picker from Tennessee, whose name I google over 50 times a day or something like that, I promise, i'm not stalking her, I just have a bit of a crush on her hair and her general attitude to life and her amazing music.
At the moment Valerie is trying to capture her songs on a 12 song album,
Valerie says "I never had the funds to be able to work in a studio with a capable producer who could help me capture the magic my music gives when I perform live."
Miss June has just 60 days to raise some funds for this album, this is where she needs our help... go here to find out more
