This book is a gem! Every naturalista will be able to relate to the hair struggle being absolutely real but also absolutely rewarding. I love the illustrations. The questions are a good combo of insightful and fun. Yes, I remember what my mama first said after I went natural! And it wasn't pretty, but she's come around.
I am SUCH a fan of this book. It's my go to gift for friends (I bought 5 copies!) who are already natural, transitioning to their natural hair or just interested in venting about hair in general. My favorite chapter is "Hair Esteem" because it helped me reflect on my relationship with my hair. I couldn't put this book down because it's like a hair diary/journal and the pics are absolutely gawgeous! Love it!
I love this book! I started my natural hair journey (and that's exactly what it is when you are rediscovering your natural beauty…a journey) three years ago and this book takes me down memory lane but also inspires me to keep going! It's exactly what us 'naturualistas' need- a way of reminding ourselves why we went natural in the first place, how we feel about natural hair, how it makes us feel about ourselves and other people, and a way to laugh about it all along the way. The illustrations are beautiful and a big part of what makes this book special. I've already gifted to a few of my friends!!
A must-have for naturalistas (and a great gift for them too)! The illustrations are beautifully done and the journal prompts are hilariously thought-provoking. I started my natural hair journey about 3 years ago; it was a process, but it was 100% worth it. Naturally You asks questions that are helping me understand why this has been such an important part of finding my identity. I'm also getting a kick out of reminiscing about some of my questionable hair decisions over the years…that Pro-Style up ponytail…WHY? LOL! Definitely will be in my "great gift" rotation!
This book came at the right time. I recently cut all of my hair (about 13 in) because I couldn't fathom spending another second on my hair. Now, I am having some challenges with styling short hair and Naturally You is helping my navigate through the process. I love the "Daily Do" and "Product Junkie" sections. I would recommend this book to the person who creates bomb twist outs every time, the person who can't imagine being natural, and everyone in between. Everyone can gain something from this book, even if it is just understanding your relationship with your hair.
