When I was a little girl I only wanted to play with Barbie dolls that had dark hair. I had one with a crew cut and one with long Rasta braids. My love and fascination for black hair has been there as long as I can remember. You understand that when I spotted Sandra Sprott at an event with her hair in gorgeous twisted braids, I didn’t let her out if my sight. She told me about her mother, who had no experience with Afro-American hair and about her blog where she writes inspiring pieces on black hair.
