Hair Love By Matthew A. Cherry Illustrated by Vashti Harrison (English Version)

Tender and empowering, Hair Love - A celebration of daddies and daughters everywhere: A dedication to black and brown boys and girls everywhere to learn to love their natural hair.

Zuri knows her hair is beautiful, but it has a mind of its own! It kinks, coils, and curls every which way. Mum always does Zuri's hair just the way she likes it - so when Daddy steps in to style it for an extra special occasion, he has a lot to learn.

But he LOVES his Zuri, and he'll do anything to make her - and her hair - happy. It's up to Daddy to give his daughter an extra-special hair style in this story of self-confidence and the love between fathers and daughters.
