Book Review: The Hair Commandments

Hello Readers!

I have a new book review for all of you!

The Hair Commandments by Latoya Johnson-Rainey and C. Nathaniel Brown. 

This book was recently released and I was giving the opportunity to review it and share my honest opinion with every single one of you! 

This book is approximately 132 pages long and is full of information about Wigs, Weaves, Natural Hair and so much more. But let’s break it down and see what you can expect to see in this book.
Chapter One through Chapter Four: Wigs

In these chapters you will find everything you need to know if you are thinking about option to sport a wig.  The writers give tips like:

*How to choose the right Wig;
*How to choose the right style based on the shape of your face;
*What is the Wig Cap Size and how to measure it in order to obtain the right cap size.
*The difference between lower and higher synthetic hair, human blend and human hair;
*The pros and cons of the use of human hair in Wigs.

Additionally, you will also have at your fingers tips, information on how to properly care for a Wig.  From shampooing, conditioning, drying, brushing and styling it in order for the Wig to last longer.  If you are not one hundred percent sure on how to put a Wig on, don’t worry this book will also provide you with that information! 

Chapter Five through Chapter Nine: Weaves

Like the previous chapters, under the “Weaves” chapters you will find the different kind and qualities of Weaves.  

Tips on how to properly apply them and care for them. If you are not familiar with the different kind of Weaves that are out there in the Hair Market, and are looking to get a better picture of what the differences are and which ones are “heat friendly”, than this book is definitely good to have. 

These chapters will also give tips on how to determine how much hair you will need to buy and the length of the hair in order to accomplish a particular style.

Chapter Nine through Chapter 15: Natural Hair

I’ve been doing my daughter’s hair for some time now, and I’m very familiar with the majority of the information found in the Natural Hair chapters.  But if you are thinking about going natural or if you are looking to keep your curly kids natural and you are not sure where to start, this is book is for you!!

You will have information on:

*The Big Chop and Transitioning;
*Texture Types and Different Curl Patterns;
*Definition on Co-Washing, Stretching Banding, Twisting, Blow Outs and Bantu Knots.

More importantly, you will find tips on natural hair styles and how to properly flat iron your hair without damaging your curly tresses.

At the end of each section you will find a list of “Shalls” and “Shall Nots” which are great to have!

This book also talks about “The Bald Movement” and its founder Nell Coleman.  The Bald movement was designed to support and empower people all over the world to embrace the essence of being bald. 

You will also find information on CinagrOrganic Healthy Hair Products and its founder Giovan Lane, Ancients Secrets with Temeka Royster, Hairnamics Hair Vitamins with Kim Kearney, and more!

I truly enjoyed seeing all the photographs and reading all the information contained in this book.  If you are new to the Natural Hair world, this is a great book to have.
