CASTRIES, Saint Lucia (PRWEB) May 15, 2012
In hew new book “101 Ways to Avoid Hair Loss: For Persons with Relaxed, Natural, and Afro-Caribbean Hair” (published by AuthorHouse) author and veteran hairdresser Mary Juliana Brice offers the knowledge she has built about preserving hair.
While the book is seemingly aimed at the hair issues of persons living in the Caribbean, it is not meant to focus only on the Caribbean population. “Our people have migrated to all parts of the world,” Brice says, “and all persons with ‘black Afro hair’, whether they have it relaxed, permed, weaved, braided or natural will find solutions from it for hair loss.”
An excerpt from “101 Ways to Avoid Hair Loss”:
“The combination of sun, sea and chlorine can have a tremendous bleaching effect on the hair. A day tour on a boat, with sea bathing and sun bathing, can produce dramatic changes in hair colour. The resulting ‘sun-kissed hair’, though lovely and alluring, can become dry, brittle, and prone to breakage.”
Brice is certain of the appeal her book answers. “There is a tremendous increase in hair products and styles that are focused on our Afro-American, African, and Afro-Caribbean hair textures,” she says. That increase, she believes, is driving an epidemic of poor hair care, as users increase the incidence and abuse of hair-care products.
“I want my readers to realize the ways they have been neglecting the care of their hair,” Brice says, “and how easy it is to maintain healthy-looking hair.”
