#Black Hair + Books: “Bad Hair Does Not Exist” in English or Spanish

Hello Meltingpot Readers,

This is our last full week of February, which means out last full week to highlight our favorite books about Black hair. Last week I dipped into the archives to find some of my favorites from years past. This week I’m going to highlight books about Black hair written by and/or for people with Black hair who might not be Black Americans. Case in point, today’s title, “Bad Hair Does Not Exist!/ Pelo Malo No Existe!” was written – in English and Spanish – to help Latinas love their natural (aka kinky) hair.

I haven’t actually seen the book. I’ve only read about it, but it sounds like a great idea. The more images young Latinas have of seeing their curls and kinks celebrated, the better. It can only lead to greater self-acceptance and confidence. Kudos to the author, Sulma Arzu-Brown, for writing this much needed book. You can read more about the author here and support her work.

Peace + Hair Grease!
