If you love it, it will grow!
I recently had the chance to read Dr. Phoenyx Austin’s Book “If You Love It, It Will Grow” A guide to Growing Long afro textured hair.
Now there are many books out there such as “Ultra Black Hair Growth“ and Chicoros “How to Grow Afro- Textured hair. All of these book are great in their own way and I own every single one of them. However, the one I will have to say hands down is my favorite is Dr Phoenyx’s If you love it will grow.
This one small compact book is just the right book for those of us with kinky, kinky…., textured hair. It can be so hard to find someone with almost the exact same hair texture as myself., Tightly coiled and no curls nowhere to be found. So when I saw this book, I was stoked! It was just what I had been searching for; a great reference book full of tips and information on natural hair care for us textured hair girlys.
The format of the book is really simple and straightforward, making it easy to digest and apply the methods right away. It does not feel overwhelming, in fact it was a pleasure to read and I almost finished reading the book, the same day I got it!
That’s how delightful it was to read the book.
In the beginning Dr. Phoenyx tells her personal back story on her own issues with the creamy crack, hair breakage and the psychological drama that she experienced from growing up with a relaxer from a young age.
She gives detail accounts on the experiences she had to overcome and learning to love herself and her hair.
” This book is about growing hair to longer lengths, but is also about a deeper message; a message of self love and self acceptance. For many women, hair is not just hair. There is a great interconnectedness between how women feel about their hair and how they feel about themselves. ” ~ Dr. Phoenyx Austin
Yes, this book is one that will help you to realize that loving your hair is also about loving your self in all areas of your life. From choosing the right foods to eat, to making sure you workout and scheduling time to love and nurture your hair.
I love how in Chapter 2 Dr. Phoenyx lets you know, as it says in the bible that love is Nurturing, Love is kind, Love is patient. It protects and shields from harm. She questions you to question yourself whether or not you love your hair. If you read this book you will see why she does this and how eye opening it will be for you as you read the rest of the book.
