Hey guys! In this latest FIT 411 episode I’ll be talking about natural hair and the real truth about why it’s so hard to care for natural hair. Plus, I’ll be announcing a cool book giveaway that I’m doing in collaboration with a fellow Instagrammer, Dee Fogarty, who runs the account @ILoveBooksAndICannotLie. Dee is an educator and literacy consultant based in Washington DC and she’s ½ of a dynamic duo that’s taken the initiative to form a book subscription service to make diverse books for accessible to children and parents. For the giveaway collabo we’ll be selecting 2 winners to receive two books – my best-selling natural haircare guide, If You Love It, It Will Grow, and my children’s book, Love Your Hair! Check out the details below on how to enter the giveaway (deadline in July 31 at midnight), and also check out the video below to learn more about a topic that I’m pretty passionate about, and it revolves around not just loving your natural hair, but also loving yourself!
Peace, Love & Healthy Living! – Doc
