Sophisticate's Black Hair Styles and Hair Care Guide (An Update!)


Remember when I made this post about my disappointment in Sophisticate's Black Hair Styles and Hair Care Guide? Well, I never heard back from them. In fact, one of our readers posted the link to my post on their Facebook page only to have it deleted. Which is why I was pleasantly surprised to pick up their magazine and see a curly cutie in the children's section with 20 hair care tips. I didn't get a chance to read through all the tips but I was able to snap some pictures. I guess they heard us! I'm going to keep an eye on the magazine, I would love to see more of this. Thanks to those of you who emailed. :)
