5.0 out of 5 stars You'll refer to it over and over again, September 27, 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Hair Raising: Beauty, Culture, and African American Women (Paperback)
I used this book in several college papers I wrote as an undergraduate student, a paper I published on the politics of hair among children of African decent, and I still read it today. Rooks talks about hair and African women in advertising, popular and political culture and she really explains the historical contexts of these hair issues. A great read for any student, and non-student who is interested in diging a little deeper in the hair issues sorrounding African women.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hair Politics, August 26, 2001
By 
Excellent resource for delving into the Politics of black hair in America. From jobs, to advertising, to day to day living hair affects African Americans in ways culturally and historically that many groups never confront. Great resource for women of all races to learn the political truth behind black hair.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Personable and Deep Book..., November 7, 2008
This review is from: Hair Raising: Beauty, Culture, and African American Women (Paperback)
I think that this was an awsome read. It talks about how African American women relate things with psychology, culture and hair. To me this book was very personal. For many women hair is more than just hair and there are lots of complexities as to why we wear our hair the way we may, or who makes those choices and how society may feel about ourt hair (rather straight or kinky).
