      A few people have called me to let me know I’m listed in your book under Natural Hair Services. It’s funny because they were all like “I found your number in the BIBLE!!!!!” Now first off I live in Vegas and secondly anyone who has ever met me would definitely not put my number in an actual BIBLE 🙂

      So I had to ask what exactly it was they were talking about and that led me here. I just really wanted to thank you and let you know that I will be ordering your book and keeping it in the salon so clients can read it and be motivated to purchase 1 or MORE copies for themselves.

      P.S. I left you a shout out on my voicemail greeting too!

    I’m super excited this book will soon be available in the UK. There is a serious lack of information and resources for natural hair in London which I find shocking. Coming from the US, I thought London would be in the mix as far as natural hair. But I have been approached by so many women who want to know what products I use and how I do my hair. I always tell them about the site but now they too can experience the joy of having the book for there own personal reference. =)

    Superb stuff with one, fella. Ive read ones junk earlier than not to mention youre merely much too remarkable. I�m a sucker for what youve obtained these, absolutely adore everything that youre stating plus and the choice of state it. Everyone make it fun while you even now try to keep on this smart. I JUST won’t be able to hold out to study more with you. This approach is really a good weblog.
