A: I am a huge fan of Lisa Akbari. You should check out her website. One of my favorite hair books is Lisa Akbari’s The Black Woman’s Guide to Beautiful Hair. I purchased it used for $5 and it was the best $5 I’ve ever spent on my hair. It’s one of the first books I read. The deep condition and recondition method that I talk about a lot on the blog is a tip that I got from her book and it saved my hair.
