Good Foundation

Posted on Updated on

Like anything in life you should have a good jumping off point;  Or should I say a good foundation. Whenever I find a new interest I tend to purchase a book. In the past couple of years I have become interested in photography. Before I purchased my DSLR camera or my Lenses I purchased a photography book. Photography is an expensive hobby so I needed to read up on the subject before I could commit to the hobby.

The same can be applied to healthy hair care. During the five years on this hair journey I have become a product junkie, I do not know how much money I have spent of hair products. But I got to the point that after throwing a lot of hair products out I still had enough products to last me four to six months. So when I started this natural journey my first instinct was to go out and buy products. So I started watching people on Youtube to see what type of products  I should purchase. Coincidentally around that same time everyone on Youtube and the social networks were reviewing this book called: “A Comprehensive Guide to Texture Hair Care The Science of Black Hair” By Audrey Davis-Sivasothy. (The book can be purchased at thought to myself if I am unwilling to commit to photography without a good understanding on the topic, then why would I just dive in head first into natural hair care?

So I decided to purchase The Science of Black Hair and I couldn’t have been happier. I’m not going to go into what I learn point by point but what I will say is that Davis-Sivasothy explains in five units: The Science of Black Hair; Healthy Hair Management; Working with Chemicals in a Healthy Hair Care Regimen; Children’s Hair Care; and The Hair-Total Body Connection. My favorite part of This book is that it provides a list of products that are recommended for our hair type. If you want to commit to your hair journey I recommend that you read this book.
