Natural Hair Reading List

Books and Texts needed in every home library

If you are anything like me, you love to read and learn new things. Since starting my natural hair journey I realised that there are so many myths and lies we have internalised. This has lead not only to a rejection of our hair and beauty, but several practices which are detrimental to our well being.

I have put together a list of books which will hopefully reeducate and inform us on the best ways to look after our hair.

This list is not exhaustive, if you know of a book that should be on the list send an email to with ‘Book Submission’ in the Title and I will add it.

I aim to review as many of the books as possible, so keep an eye out on the blog and the Snatched Edges Podcast.
