October Giveaway Announcement! *CLOSED*


It’s that time again!! So, do you remember a few weeks ago that I did a post about Chicoro’s “Lead Hair” Theory? Well, get this! She liked our discussion so much, she sent me four copies of her popular and acclaimed book, Grow It! How to Grow Afro-Textured Hair to Maximum Lengths in the Shortest Time!

I was stunned when she commented on the post and reached out to me! Then, when she offered to send me books for a giveaway (and one for me to read:), I was even more blown away! I LOVE doing this:)!!

Well, the books have arrived and I have three to give away this month. In order to be entered for your chance to win, all you have to do is send me one of the following by October 31st!

  • STYLE TUTORIALS – Love ‘em, want ‘em, need ‘em. If you are an aspiring, amateur hair stylist with great hair and greater styles, please share!! I’d especially love some tutorials for short and medium length hair as I often get those requests, but cannot accommodate them myself. So, send me a bulleted picture or video tutorial of your fabulous style for inclusion in the “Style Library!” Please use the subject, “Style Tutorial.”
  • REVIEWS – Did you try an amazing, lackluster or absolutely horrendous product, tool or accessory recently? Do you have a holy grail product that just doesn’t get enough shine? Then send your in your Rant or Rave (include the ingredients list for product reviews, please!)! Please use the subject, “Review.”
  • HAIRSTORIES – I still have a few more of these to post, but the coffers are starting to get low! So, if you haven’t sent in your story yet, now is the time! I’d especially love some Transition stories as we haven’t had one of those! There are not set questions for the Transition story, so go wild! We would especially like to learn and see what styles work best for you and how you manage the two textures (products, care, etc.). Please use the subject, “Hairstory.”

So that’s it ladies!! E-mail your Style Tutorials, Reviews, HairStories and GOC entries to hairscapades@gmail.com for your chance to win one of three copies of Chicoro’s Grow It! And don’t forget to include pictures!! Oh, and as an added bonus, I’ll include a bottle of one of my staples, Vatika oil! So, get your entry in now!
