REVIEW TUESDAY: "GROW IT" By: Chicoro

Today's review is going to be a little different because it's a BOOK that I will be telling you guys about ! This book was presented to me by a youtuber !

Photobucket

It says "How to grow afro-textured hair to maximum lengths in the shortest time". The title alone sold me. It's a book about how to care for not only natural hair, but hair period. What's a more perfect time for me to find a book like this than in the beginning of my transition, right? I was excited when I saw it and ordered it right away from amazon.com. It was $17 and change and that included the shipping!

It's a pretty thin book, didn't take long to read at all and what she explains is how to treat and care for your hair to preserve it's length. She has a six step process that she calls the "grow it process" on how to attain growth and retain length. I don't wanna give to much away because that may mess with her book sales, but I will share the six steps with you:
1. De-tangle
2. Cleanse
3. Condition
4. Moisturize
5. Protect
6. Grow it !

Of course she gives way more detail and example than that, but again..if I gave away everything, no one would buy the book. So if you are interested in those details and examples, you should pick it up!

My Opinion: This book taught me safer ways to care for my hair. One thing I don't have when it comes to hair is patience! So, this process is teaching me to make time and take time when doing my hair. She goes into the science and biology of the hair which, to me, is boring..(not just in her book, I don't like most biology period), but you have to know what you're dealing with when you're trying to care for something! She also explained the Ph of hair. I learned on youtube that any products you put in your hair should have a Ph of 4.0-7.0! And they sell strips to test it! I don't have any yet, but that is on my list of things to buy next!! Maybe I'll do a short video on how those work once I get them! But, back to the book.. The bottom line is if you want to grow your hair to long lengths, you have to learn to preserve the hair that has already grown from your scalp. You'll never have long length if your hair keeps breaking when it reaches a certain point. So you have to be gentle, take the extra time needed to do things to your hair without causing it so much stress. The book is pretty great for someone who doesn't know much about how to properly care for hair(me!).. and it's even better for someone that is transitioning because Chicoro transitioned at one point and now her hair is all natural, gorgeous, and crazy long! If you know someone who just got into hair care, this book would be a nice gift! I can't say much more other than it being a great addition to my journey. I'm happy I found it when I did, so that I could correct any mistakes that I may or may not have been making..And I just hope that what worked for her, works for me too ! ;D I'll keep you guys posted!

Let this be your catalyst to Seventh-Heaven:

'The more you shall honor Me,
the more I shall bless you'
-the Infant Jesus of Prague
(<- Czech Republic, next to Russia)

Love him or leave him...
ya better lissen to DonJuan;
if you deny o'er-the-Hillary's evil,
which most whorizontalites do,
you cannot deny Hellfire
which YOU send YOURSELF to.

Yes, earthling, I was an NDE:
the sights were beyond extreme.
Choose Jesus.
You'll be most happy you did.
God bless your indelible soul.
