“This is so amazing to me,” said Nik Scott, author and YouTube guru. “As a publication in its infancy stages, it’s extremely important to position it in front of targeted audiences where readers can feel more connected to the book and to me. My book goes beyond the how and challenges readers to take a look at the why.”
"10 Easy Steps To Go Natural Without Cutting Your Hair Off!" is the first book of its kind and provides unique approaches to transitioning to natural hair, building a strong natural hair care routine and learning how to love your natural hair. Last year USA Today reported the number of women who say they don’t use chemical relaxers on their hair increased from 26% in 2010 to 36% in 2011. This number is reflective of the many women who need support and direction in caring for and overcoming common societal and mental challenges that come when a woman chooses to exclusively wear her highly textured hair.
Scott transitioned from relaxed to natural hair for two years and knows first-hand the ups and downs to going natural. “More and more women with highly textured hair are releasing themselves from chemical relaxers, Scott said. “In response, more and more women are taking note and admiring other’s natural hair without realizing it’s more than a simple hairstyle change. For decades society has subliminally encouraged women with highly textured hair to hide their hair’s true texture with heat and chemicals. Even in the midst of a “natural hair movement,” natural hair is still viewed as unkept, unruly and unprofessional. I wanted there to be a nitty gritty and no fuss resource to support women who want to go natural.”
"10 Easy Steps To Go Natural Without Cutting Your Hair Off!" is available in print on the book’s main webpage at 10EasyStepsToGoNatural.com, on Amazon.com and on BarnesandNoble.com.
