A Guide to Black Hair #1 – Relaxers, by Justina Ireland
Justina Ireland is a YA author, and as she says, Purveyor of Awesomeness. She is writing a series of articles, a Guide to Black Hair. Here is the first in the series, A Guide to Black Hair #1 – Relaxers. Hair is such an important part of a person’s identity. Most of us have dealt our entire life with one type of hair – whatever ours is – and it would be easy to write poorly about types, textures, processes, and products that are different from what we are familiar with. So… here is valuable information for getting hair right for our characters!
And Justina, one of my protagonists, Jasmine McKinley, thanks you!
