This is a non-fiction book about the journey that I have taken in the world of hair through the many different styles, times, and attitudes toward African American women and their hair. It is designed to be a learning tool showing the many challenges and pressures that African American women have put on themselves regarding hair. This book is a true testament of the African-American woman's journey into the pursuit of the perfect and ideal style and how that, at times, ties into a woman's self-esteem. After I locked my hair on December 26, 2001, my mission was to tell a story about my plight in finding myself through my hair, being comfortable in my skin, loving my distinct African features, and truly loving who God made me to be. It is my estimation that women of African descent continually connect hair with self-esteem and self-worth to the degree that we look at extremes; if our hair is "nappy or kinky" then it is bad and if our hair is "straight" or "loosely curled" then it is good. The chapters in this book touch on the hair care industry, your mind, body, and soul and how they play a part in your hair, the devastation of hair loss, and hair from the perspective of women and men.
