The Science Of Black Hair - A MUST Have!

Thursday, October 13, 2011

I finally got my copy of the infamous comprehensive guide to textured hair care written by Audrey Davis-Sivasothy.

Audrey aka Sista Slick (all you hair veterans know Sista Slick from the hair forums back in the day) has always been someone I look up to in the hair care world. We share the same hair type (4b), therefore; I incorporated many of her practices/tips/suggestions in the beginning of my journey that has stuck with me 'till this very day. Because of her credibility, I knew this book was something I had to own!

I own the special edition, meaning it's a hard cover book and in color so you can see the beautiful images of hair fibers, diagrams etc. This book is by far the best tool to have while on your hair journey. I honestly wish it came out years ago *sigh*. It's the most organized, well thought out, and easy to understand guide to understanding our hair on a deeper level. Once you crack open this book and begin to read it, you won't put it down, seriously! Honestly, when I read this book, I act as if I'm a student of healthy hair care. I literally pick up my highlighter and begin focusing on all the important points that resonate with me. As you begin to read, your attitude and perception about our hair begins to change and eventually it will transform. All your old ways of thinking about Black hair will be abandoned.

As you read, you'll begin to understand why we reach the "shoulder-length plateau", you'll get an in depth look at pH balance, water issues and why it's important where hair porosity is concerned, how to maintain color treated hair, how to trim split ends, why your nightly routine is important, hair product suggestions and much more. Just to top it off, I love the glossary and product ingredient glossary at the back of the book just in case you don’t understand what certain terms mean or you are trying to make sense of the ingredients in your hair care products, you have it all there at your convenience :)

Although I've been on my journey for 4 years and reached my goal of MBL (with occasional trims to BSL), there's still so much more to learn. I just can't put this book down. Audrey Davis made it incredibly easy to begin your hair journey with little to no error on your part. All the info is there for you introducing you to healthy hair strategies for achieving beautiful radiant hair, regardless of your hair type. It will be your "go-to" reference book – it's mine for sure. Get yours today!

Enjoy :)
