Don’t Touch My Hair
By Emma Dabiri
β €
πŸ“– Synopsis:
From women’s solidarity and friendship to forgotten African scholars and the dubious provenance of Kim Kardashian’s braids, the scope of black hairstyling ranges from pop culture to cosmology, from prehistoric times to the (afro)futuristic.
β €
Uncovering sophisticated indigenous mathematical systems in black hairstyles, alongside styles that served as secret intelligence networks leading enslaved Africans to freedom, Don’t Touch My Hair proves that far from being only hair, black hairstyling culture can be understood as an allegory for black oppression and, ultimately, liberation.
β €
πŸ“š Bookish Thoughts:
Hair care is a spiritual journey. When I decided to return to natural after years of chemical relaxing, I was born again. And in embracing the way G-d made me, I am learning to love myself. Every day I discover something new about myself, and I make new friends offering advice on styling these never ending tangles. The struggle is real and this book gets it! I’m only halfway done, but my goodness I am loving every page.
