Book Crazy: Building your home library

If you don’t have a natural hair library, what are you waiting for? I love reading hair related books. I would go online to discover books that might help me better care for me and my daughter’s natural hair. I started off borrowing a lot of books from my local library. However, some books I wanted were just not available to check out so I decided that I needed a book collection for home. I like being able to go back and reference the information in these books.

**Here are the books currently in my home library**

Hair Care

Grow It! How to Grow Afro-Texture Hair to Maximum Lengths in the Shortest Time

Naturally Healthy Hair: Herbal Treatments and Daily Care for Fabulous Hair
Relaxed or Natural – You Can Have Beautiful, Black, Healthy, Hair: Comprehensive Guide to Reaching Your Hair’s Full Potential

Thank God I’m Natural: The Ultimate Guide to Caring for and Maintaining Natural Hair

The Knotty Truth: Managing Tightly Coiled Hair at Home: DIY Survival Guide

Ultra Black Hair Growth II: another 6” longer 1 year from now


Natural Beauty from the Garden: More Than 200 Do-It-Yourself Beauty Recipes and Garden Ideas

Reader’s Digest Natural Beauty: Making and Using Pure and Simple Beauty Products

Ingredient Dictionary

Milady’s Hair-Care Product & Ingredients Dictionary

**Here are the books currently on my wish list**

Don't Go Shopping for Hair-Care Products Without Me: Over 4,000 Products Reviewed, Plus the Latest Hair-Care Information
(Previously borrowed from library but now I want a copy of my own.)

Nappturosity: How To Create Fabulous Natural Hair and Locs
(I’m trying to locate a used copy. I just think $27 is a lot to pay for a new paperback copy of this book.)

On various natural hair blogs and social networks, you can find many reviews on some of these popular reads. Upon request, I would be happy to do a complete review on any of the books I own (click here to view my previous book “mini reviews”).

So what is (or will be) in your home library? Do you have any recommendations for me?

Thanks for reading. Be blessed!

I love books but for me natural hair care books are not appealing. I don't know, I prefer to read blogs and forums but not books. I think you should review some of these books on your blog.

Hi Jc: I guess I'm just nerdy that way, lol.

I counted mine the other day after chatted with Chris-Tia Donaldson via email. I have ten and she's sending me hers. YAY!!! I also have four of the Nappily series novels by Trisha R. Thomas
