There are few healthy hair enthusiasts out there who haven’t logged hours reading CurlyNikki.com. The site is a veritable resource for natural hair product recommendations, haircare tips, style ideas and discussion topics.
The four year-old online destination, founded by 29 year-old expert Nikki Walton, is so popular it’s inspired a book, “Better Than Good Hair.” Chockfull of advice to help women achieve healthy hair, “Better Than Good Hair” even includes tips for maintaining your style while exercising and directions for natural hairstyles complete with illustrations.
“It’s not a political manifesto. There’s no anti-relaxer or anti-straight hair rhetoric,” Walton, who has earned the nickname “The Curl Whisperer,” tells The Huffington Post. “There’s no judgement, no harsh stances. This book meets you where you are and offers ways to achieve healthy hair.”
The book, which includes chapters like “The Big Chop: Mama, Friends and Significant Others (How to Transition Without Losing Your Mind)” and “The Terrible Twos: Standing by Your Hair — Even When It’s Acting A Fool,” launches today. It’s available here.
