What Does It Take To Get Your Stamp Of Approval?
i’m leery of reading any books about natural hair just because there’s SOOO much information on YT and blogs, and within my hair salon. so would you say that you learned anything new, based on all the resources we have at our fingertips through the internet?
So I went back through and realized that no, I hadn’t learned anything new outside of a few hair recipes. However, I still thought it was a great read.
What makes a book outstanding for me is its content. It doesn’t have to be new but it does have to be thorough, accurate and unbiased.
Does it delver? If it’s a book about, say, cutting hair, does it offer pictures of various cuts? Instructions? Types of shears? A book of hair styles…does it explore face shapes? Style maintenance?
Are you telling me that relaxed hair offers more styling options than natural hair? (I’ve actually read this in a book!) Or that dreads were “started” by Jamaicans? (If you agree with this last statement, please see my “Dread Myths.”)
Is every other sentence pushing products from your line of haircare? Do you give more attention to certain hair types than others? Do personal preferences/opinions slant your delivery of the facts?
To me, these are three necessities for a good hair book. Everything else is just icing on the cake.
It’s always nice to discover something new but it’s not mandatory. I’m more concerned with the quality of the content.
