Product Details

" I had no idea the history of hair could be so fascinating or such an intriguing angle to view black history from. I loved learning about hair follicles, Benin Bronzes and the role of hair products in driving the Harlem Renaissance. Fascinating how in 1920s America hair salons and products enabled a few Afro American women to become millionaires."

Highly recommend for all ages from 9 to 89 years.

Small beautiful presented hardback (perfect size for Christmas stockings), with colour illustrations throughout.

Limited number available with exclusive print and signed book plate.

The Story of Afro Hair takes us right back to the politics and fashion of Ancient Egypt. Speeding forwards to modern times we experience the Kingdom of Benin, Henry VIII's court, the enslavement of African peoples, the Harlem Renaissance, the beginnings of Rastafarianism, Britain in the 1980s - and much more.

With profiles of inspirational key figures in the Afro hair beauty industry, such as: Sara Spencer Washington, Madam CJ Walker, Viola Desmond, Lincoln Dyke, Dudley Dryden and Anthony Wade.
