When I first heard about the book, I thought that it would contain pretty much the same information that I have read in so many other natural hair books that I have read, but I was pleasantly surprised by the book's content.
Why it's unique...
Nappturosity helps you to develop a healthy hair care regime i.e. washing and conditioning, for your specific hair type with step-by-step instructions; it gives detailed information on dietary supplements that not only aid in hair growth but overall health in general, for loc wearers or those contemplating locs - it breaks down all the stages of your loc growth including details for different types of locs i.e. Sisterlocks, Braidlocs etc. (it even gives step-by-step instructions on the latching method); it lists 'support' groups for both loose hair and loc'd naturals - providing site addresses; and much, much more.
So much information is packed in Nappturosity I can see why some reviewers called it the haircare Bible :o)
I love the fact that the author mentions a product or accessory and actually tells you what it's for and where to get it. Her Harmful Ingredient Review chapter is one of my favorites, along with the easy to follow homemade product recipe chapter with detailed descriptions of essential oils and other natural ingredients and what they are used for.
I would categorize Nappturosity as a pocket reference guide for natural hair, because I constantly find myself referring back to it. This book is a definite must-have.
Both resources were well written, easy to read and follow guides through understanding your natural hair texture to creating your own products! Erin is also a well informed and well versed woman whose confidence radiates from her just being herself.
I recommend this book for anyone considering going natural and is seeking help on how to maintain healthy natural hair and locs.
The book is wriiten in an easy to read way, with letters that are not too small.
Only thing is that there are very few pics in the book (around 8 small pictures), and are they are in black and white, as is normally the case with these kind of afro texture books.
I give it 5 stars for good information!
Not only does it tell you how to make your hair beautiful, but it list the products and what they can do for you....
It also gives you a list of don't s , it helps you recognize the type of hair you have and what's best for your type....
I have bought other books before , I was looking for any information that can help me give this best care for my daughters hair , I guest what I am trying to say is thanks to the author they nail it ......
