Plaited Glory: For Colored Girls Who've Considered Braids, Locks, and Twists
Lonnice Brittenum Bonner told thousands of black women what not to do with their hair in her first book, Good Hair: For Colored Girls Who've Considered Weaves When the Chemicals Became Too Ruff. Now she'll tell women what to do with their hair - braid it, twist it, lock it, and crimp it. In Plaited Glory you'll learn the basics of maintaining locks, twists, and braids, while you get the lowdown on everything from choosing braiding salons to tips for parents with style-hungry daughters. You'll also find out why so many women put up with marathon braiding sessions and why they are willing to pay big money for them. So if you're still wondering if you'll be able to get a job while sporting braids, locks, or twists, or be doomed to stand on a street corner with a sign that reads "I'll work for food and a home relaxer kit", you'll be reassured. Braids certainly haven't stopped Senator Carol Moseley-Braun from addressing colleagues in Congress, and a short-cropped natural with a flirty fringe adorned former NASA astronaut Dr. Mae Jemison. As always, you'll laugh out loud at Bonner's stories about everything from Afros and Stevie's People, to Peaches and Herb and Solid Gold, while learning how to care for your braided, natural, texturized, or chemically relaxed hair.
