Help build a sense of self-love in a curl-positive home with these great children’s books!

Roll call: who got their first relaxer around 6 years of age? If you’re raising your hand, you’re not alone! I got my first relaxer around that time also. My mother never said natural hair wasn’t beautiful or presentable, but it was always explained that straight hair was just more manageable: easier to wash, easier to style and most importantly, easier to comb. I was never teased too horribly about my hair being “too big” or “too nappy,” but a good dose of self-love is always in order!

If you have little ones who are starting to beg for the flat iron, or if you just want to help build a sense of self-love in a curly-positive home, check out these children’s books!
