Good Hair: The Essential Guide to Afro, Textured and Curly Hair (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


An essential, practical guide to caring for Afro, textured and curly hair.

In 2018, award-winning British-Ghanaian hairstylist and Hair Lounge salon owner Charlotte Mensah was the first black woman to be inducted into the British Hairdressing Hall of Fame. Having spent three decades styling thousands of people from all walks of life, she has now written the first guide to loving and caring for your curls.

Featuring case studies of clients who came to her looking for a 'hair fix', and informed by her own story from apprentice to business-owner, this book will dispel common hair myths and give you the knowledge and tools to attain good hair health.

Good Hair is the ultimate guide on how to:

- identify and understand your curl texture(s)

- promote hair growth and find good products

- choose the right protective styles

- overcome hair loss, itchiness or dryness

- do styles such as cornrows, locs and bantu knots

- devise your own tailored hair care routine

Packed with expert advice, nourishing recipes and top maintenance tips, this is a celebration of the unique beauty and history of black hair.

Charlotte Mensah is a hairstylist, owner and artistic director of the Hair Lounge salon, and founder of the Charlotte Mensah Manketti Oil products. She trained at the London College of Fashion in the late '80s, under the guidance of 'The Godfather of British Afro Hairdressing', the late Winston Isaacs. Charlotte welcomes a constant tide of devoted clients, from the business, music and TV worlds. In 2018, she was crowned 'Afro Hairdresser of the Year' for the third time at the British Hairdressing Awards, subsequently entering the British Hairdressing Hall of Fame. Mensah has been at the forefront of the natural hair care movement since the early 2000 and has been a columnist on the subject since 2005. She is recognised as the go-to authority on maintaining natural Afro, mixed and curly textures in magazines such as Elle, Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, NYT and Tatler among others.
