My Review.

This has to be my go to guide on natural hair. The science of black hair is my reference book, years later and I still refer to it. I love how it’s detailed and easy to read. You don’t need a dictionary or your science book, it’s pretty easy and enjoyable to read. I read about the moisture- protein balance and ingredients to look for in a moisture & protein based deep conditioner in this book for the very first time.
