Over the last 10 years, the natural Afro hair movement has picked up pace with so many more of us saying goodbye to relaxer and falling in love, sometimes for the first time, with the kinks and coils of our hair. A new book, You And Your Hair: The Ultimate Healthy Hair Masterclass for Afro Textured Hair, aims to deepen that love further by educating readers about the science and beauty of Afro-textured hair.
You And Your Hair author, Sarah Roberts is a healthy hair consultant, educator, and passionate advocate for Afro-textured hair. In the last 10 years, Sarah who is also an Associate Member of Registered Trichologist, has consulted and educated women, men and young people through her platform Saffron Jade, about the science and special care needs of Afro-textured hair, supporting them to develop an individual healthy hair care regimen to achieve healthy hair and longer lengths.
She has condensed all of this knowledge into her new book which offers readers an enriching masterclass on how to nurture and care for Afro-textured hair, particularly from the perspective of our heritage and history.
Afro-textured hair has a complex history. Many of us are still unpacking the connotations and perceptions it comes with while still trying to learn how to love our crowns. You And Your Hair: The Ultimate Healthy Hair Masterclass for Afro Textured Hair will help you understand your hair and what it takes to nurture it daily.

With lots of illustrations, careful explanations about the science of Afro hair and even space for you to add notes alongside the information, You And Your Hair will take you on a journey of discovery and reflection about what it means to develop a healthy relationship with our hair.
“This book goes beyond hair itself to reconnect readers with their culture, heritage and history.”
The book explores the concept of healthy Afro-textured hair from a holistic approach of Mind, Body and Spirit, celebrating our hair as unique and beautiful and refreshingly, moves away from the notion of ‘good’ and ‘bad’ hair, allowing readers to discover their natural curl pattern.
Topics cover “Adopting A Healthy Lifestyle For Healthy Hair, “Our Scalp”, “Hair Loss and Hair Damage” and “The Purpose of Products For Healthy Hair and Longer Lengths”.
Sarah is extremely passionate about her book. Speaking to us about what readers can expect to learn, she said: “This book goes beyond hair itself to reconnect readers with their culture, heritage and history.”
“Our hair is as strong as our physical and mental resilience and has embodied that strength as those of African descent have faced many injustices over the last few centuries. I want people to now move to a place of positive self-identity, emotional wellbeing and productive interpersonal relationships. This book will form a vital part of your personal growth.”
