When I was a little girl, I loved the moments I spent with my mom as she did my hair — not so much getting my hair combed, but the ritual around the process, and the magic we created out of it. First, the banishment of annoying siblings to another part of the house. Then, the gathering of materials: a turquoise wide-tooth comb and brush set, an assortment of candy-colored barrettes, and the jar of blue Ultra Sheen hair grease, a small cup of solidified ocean that bore the swirling imprint, like fossilized waves, of dipping fingers. Finally, there were the stories. I felt powerful.
Yet, the actual caring, styling, and maintenance of textured hair still remains a mystery to many. Diane Da Costa unravels the tresses of textured hair. This book celebrates the diversity and creativity of black women's hairstyles, from traditional and ceremonial styles to the urban twists and turns of modern styling. Plaited Glory gives the lowdown on everything from choosing a braiding salon to differentiating between styles and their costs. More than a "hair-do" book, this is a hari primer with a cultural twist. The book not only describes the phases of this process, but also shares recipes, inspiring styles, and valuable tips to make the transition easy and rewarding. Photographs illustrate each stage of growth and showcase mature dreads.
