As we’ve covered here on Triple B before, few things get Black women as emotionally riled up as the topic of hair. Blogger Nikki Walton’s cult following from her blog, Curly Nikki, is yet another example of this. Nikki’s first book, Better Than Good Hair (Amistad) is all the buzz right now and for good reason. The book, co-written by Ernessa T. Carter, is chock-full of useful info on transitioning from relaxed to natural tresses, the big chop, tips on caring for your daughter’s mane, kitchen beautician recipes, product reccos and tons of pics from real women like you. Although I currently relax my hair, I was natural from 2000-2008 and boy do I wish this type of book was accessible back then! Well, Triple B called in a couple of favors and secured a spanking new copy for you! Wanna know how to win it?
Here’s what to do:
Leave a comment below with the name of the celebrity who will most influence or did most influence your wedding day hairstyle. This celebrity can be any race or nationality, can wear their hair kinky, wavy or straight, can rock a low-cut Cesear or a bra-strap length weave — it doesn’t matter. (It will help — but isn’t necessary — if you briefly describe the hairstyle. For example if I could enter this contest, my comment would be Nia Long’s short pixie cut. My friend NH who is planning a wedding in September 2013 would probably comment about Tracee Ellis Ross’s carefree ringlets.)
This giveaway ends at midnight EST on Friday, February 22, 2013.
The winner will be selected by a random, objective source and announced later this month and the book will be sent directly to the winner by March 1st.
I look forward to your comments!
