The International 'BTGH' Book Tour Hits St. Louis!

Hola Chicas,

Last night I brought the international 'Better Than Good Hair' book tour to my hometown of St. Louis, Missouri!  More than 600 curlies from as far as Memphis (hey Lisa, boo) and Kansas City, turned out and turnt up at The Coliseum.  The very classy affair, complete with signature cocktails, appetizers, gift bags and some wobbling morphed into a 'bout it ass party by the end of the night!  Warning... this post is incredibly pic heavy as it was another E.P.I.C. night!  I'm talking 'everything possibly imaginable, cuz' type EPIC, I mean, 'every photo is cute' type EPIC, or better yet, I mean 'envious people were instantly concerned', type EPIC. Enjoy!

My SheaMoisture Sponsored #BTGH Book Tour

Started in Tokyo, now we here... D.C. that is, and it was fab.  We brought the 'Better Than Good Hair' tour to U Street in D.C. this past Saturday afternoon, and while it was too early to shut ish down, we tried our hardest.  There were
hors d'oeuvres, good music, grown folk drinks, one-on-one consultations and lots o' pics!  Enjoy the view and I hope to see YOU on the next stop *whispers... STL... we turnin' up...on some real levels*.

I have been natural going on 4 years and I owe every Curl to CurlyNikki, so imagine my excitement when the book was announced! This book is for you, no matter if you are new or seasoned, long hair don't care or TWA, curly, kinky, wavy or wherever you fall...BTGH will help you. What I love the most is it's a collaboration of the natural community. It's not all about Nikki it's about us, everyday naturals trying to keep the curls tight! This book will stay in my will be a earmarked, written in, marked up type situation. Now when I am questioned about my hair, I will simply say get the book, and all questions will be answered.

Yes I Did it!  
love this book. After reading this book I gained the confidence to "BIG CHOP" Feb this year. My TWA is coming long quite nicely. Lots and lots of information for a newby like me. Very pleased with the outcome thanks to BETTER THAN GOOD HAIR. I have recommended this book to several of my friend who are considering going back to Natural for a heathier head of hair.

Better Than Good Hair Review 
This book was amazing. It covered so much information for the curly world. If you are looking to transition or just keep your curls healthy this is a must read. I really found the products at the end helpful. Thank you Nikki!

Great Read
This book is easy to read, informative, and entertaining. The author keeps natural hair care as simple and cute as possible without being overwhelming. This is a great purchase for anyone new to natural, highly textured hair care. It is also a good refresher of the basics for those who have been natural for some time now.

Story Time With Nikki... 'BTGH is a Bestseller'

Gather 'round, family! I’ve got a story to tell...and it's about time I tell it. Sorry for the delay.

First of all, thank you. Each and every one of you. To those who contributed to “Better Than Good Hair,” bought the book, reviewed the book, and to those who wanted to buy a copy but couldn’t, you’re all a part of this. Thanks for putting up with my incessant tweeting/facebooking/IG’ing. Even I was getting annoyed with myself from all of the promoting. It was a little - atypical.

So let me ‘splain. When I first started writing this book two years ago, it was indeed simply supposed to be a resource for all of you. The publishers were mildly excited and I was just an innocent little Smeagol (Lord of the Rings), happy about being an author. As the project progressed, I quickly realized what the new platform could mean for our community... how it would inspire even more textured women to embrace their natural hair and how it could push us into the realm of 'mainstream', getting us ever closer to changing the beauty standard. But for this to happen, we’d have to get attention and the way to get attention in this country through books, is to get on the best selling lists of one of the top five newspapers. And it wasn’t long before I was Golem, vomiting purple and pink all over the blog and bombarding you all with advertising/campaigning in order to get the precious get on the NY Times Bestseller list.
