Discover how to revel in your crowning glory

Cosmetologist Arlene Embola shares a lifetime of wisdom gleaned from working with clients going through various transformations in her new memoir, “Call Forth From the Deep” (published by AuthorHouse).

“As I, a young cosmetologist, endeavored to provide the best hair care to working, everyday people, I discovered some very real and traumatic situations such as hair loss, balding, severely damaged scalp and broken hair always exposes a deep inner brokenness,” Embola explains. “I had to do something about it, and having ‘figured it out,’ had to tell it.”

“Call Forth From the Deep” seeks to understand hair from the structural, emotional, mental and cultural point of view. Embola, who specializes in helping women looking to return to their natural roots, both literally and metaphorically, began to notice a correlation between the health of women’s hair and their quality of life and level of self esteem.

An excerpt from “Call Forth From the Deep”:

My love was not enough. I could not convince Denial that relaxers, weaves or braids were not the answer. I colored and treated her unrelaxed hair, and it looked wonderful … to me! I was willing to see her through this if she would just yield. My heart was broken, and after realizing she would not yield to my recommendations, I decided to release her as a client. It became very unhealthy for me. I cried. I could not ‘fix’ her. I did not break her. I wanted to help.

“Discover how to revel in your crowning glory,” Embola writes. “Learn how to replace the generations of erroneous practices, and ‘Call Forth From the Deep’ your true beauty.”
