Got curly hair? Get frustrated by it frizzing, drying, and generally going wild? We know exactly where you are, and sometimes curly hair can be a nightmare to care for. It can take hours to detangle, and a huge heap of maintenance each day to keep it looking good.
You may even have had to resort to straightening your hair every day to keep it manageable. But, of course, that comes with heat damage. Maybe your hair’s out of shape from so much flat ironing and blow drying, and you want to go back to cherishing your natural curls.
Whatever your curly dilemma is, you’re in the right place!
African American romance novels are a hot genre, and no two novels are the same.
You can read about billionaires who get arranged marriages in order to keep their inheritance, or tour guides getting trapped in caves, or fractured families coming together after a bitter divorce, or pastors losing and then regaining their faith. Every story will whip you away in a whirlwind romance.
Even better, most romance novels are written to be a series. Each book is like one episode of a show. These books are easy to digest, so you can read them on your lunch break or on the train or before bed, but they’re so juicy that you’ll be eager for more.
Oh, heat damage. The bane of our existence. But, sadly, every sister in their lives is sure to go through it. Whether it’s because of chemical relaxers, poor blow-drying or just sizzling away on the flat irons, this is definitely the lowest of the low. Broken edges, split ends and brittle textures are not what we want to be remembered for, oh no.
When you find yourself faced with a problem the first thing you must ask yourself is, ‘Can I overcome this?’ Luckily, in this case, the answer is yes. Similarly, when you’ve broken something you must also ask, ‘Is it repairable?’. The good news? It is.
So you’ve been on this natural hair journey for a while and have tried everything under the sun that you can think of to get that soft manageable mane, those bouncing curls, that frizz free hair.
Finally, black women get to take the stage. For too long, popular novels like Fifty Shades of Grey have overlooked women of color. At last, black women have the opportunity to tell their own stories and put black characters center stage. And these stories are amazing.
Whether you’re in the mood for a clean Christian book or a steamy, sexy romance, consider tucking into one of these novels. Grab a mug of hot chocolate and a warm blanket, and settle in for a captivating tale.
