A warm welcome extended to the lovely Jamilah A. Shakir!

Before wearing natural hair was considered acceptable, beautiful or the ‘healthy’ thing to do, Jamilah Shakir was researching and applying intensely what kinky and curly hair needed to be healthy and beautiful. She traveled abroad to study in Senegal, West Africa and throughout the United States. Thousands of hours were invested in successfully transitioning women and girls from wearing hair relaxers to a head full of beautiful kinky tresses. With commitment, she has refined the art of braiding and making women beautiful, a craft passed on from her mother since Jamilah was 9 years old.

Jamilah will join the TheSiren of TheClaudiaMossShow to discuss her beautiful new book, I CAN DO MY OWN NAPPY HAIR: Your Essential Guide to Healthy and Beautiful Hair, and Getting Over Your Hair Issues!

We will chat on Friday, September 28th at 10 AM EST!  Be there!
