Denman, the UK hairbrush brand, has been announced as the sponsor of Hairlooms: The Untangled Truth About Loving Your Natural Hair and Beauty, due to make its debut today on amazon.com.
The book, written by Michele Tapp Roseman from Maryland, US, provides a first-hand view of the author’s experience and connection to her hair, and includes the ‘hair stories’ of 32 men and women.
Roseman said: “I’ve lived and walked through the words and exercises in Hairlooms. The material is not just something I wrote but something I still use to empower me today.”
Roseman is said to have been inspired to write the book after numerous encounters with women who asked her about her natural afro and shared their own stories.
The book is described as creating a platform for Black women and those who connect with them to create new discussions about natural hair and beauty.
Two book launch events will follow on 11 February in Washington and 11 March in New York. Roseman will also be at Denman’s IBS booth in New York on 12 March from 10am-6pm.
