So, are you ready for this?!? Dr. Phoenyx Austin is going to make a special appearance at the Hairscapades Meet-Up on Saturday, February 18th in Washington, DC!!! And, she’s not coming alone!
It’s finally here – a book that takes a holistic approach to afro-textured hair care! Dr. Phoenyx Austin has a fabulous new book out titled, If You Love It, It Will Grow! A Guide To Growing Long Afro-Textured Hair. The book is available on her site, DrPhoenyx.com, Amazon and Barnes & Noble. You’ve probably seen Dr. Phoenyx (and her hair) mentioned on a few popular natural hair blogs, and now she’s written a book that shares all her personal and professional knowledge on growing and maintaining healthier and longer hair! Dr. Phoenyx Austin is a medical doctor and her book, unlike many others, is all about holisitic hair care. What does that mean? It means she covers healthy hair growth from the inside out – not hair growth based on whether hair is natural or relaxed. For example, she teaches women to use principles of nutrition, natural and organic hair products, as well as alternative medicine principles, such as aromatherapy and Ayurveda, to achieve healthy hair growth. She also addresses issues such as hair loss in Black women, as well as how to treat forms of scalp dermatitis (i.e. eczema). Overall, Dr. Phoenyx’s book is a fun, down to earth and informative read for women who are looking for a straightforward and educational guide to growing healthy, stronger and longer hair. Without a doubt, ALL women will benefit from this book.
Furthermore, Dr. Phoenyx emphasizes that her book is about a deeper message – a message of self-love and self-acceptance. She says that for many women, hair is not just hair. There is a great interconnectedness between how women feel about their hair and how they feel about themselves. In many ways, our hair is an extension of who we are. And in this book, she’s advocating that women love themselves, love their hair and treat their bodies well to achieve their beauty goals. In this book, she teaches women to start seeing and approaching their hair care from a place of mind, body and spirit!
