Tishawna, tell us about your book?
31 Tips to Healthy Hair is a self help guide to achieving and maintaining healthy and beautiful hair. There are 31 haircare tips to include inspiration and self care practices for women.
How did you come up with the idea for this book?
As a hairstylist, I see many women who spend money consistently on hair services and products but still miss the basic care that the hair needs in order to be healthy and manageable. Originally, I was giving away tips on social media, though pamphlets, and free downloads on my website. After a few conversations I was encouraged to write the book.
What was the most difficult aspect of writing this book?
One of the most difficult aspects of writing this book was getting past the fear of not knowing. I’m an introverted hairstylist who had no interest in writing to sell. I read but never viewed myself in being on the other side. It’s still scary and very weird when I hear author by my name.
Why do you write?
I write consistently in my journals but recently started writing books. I write because its freeing. It allows me to unload and remove clutter which also helps in gaining understanding.
What valuable lessons do you want readers to learn from your book?
I want readers to learn that work and patience are requirements in everything worth having. Although in this case we’re talking hair but even with hair once you follow directions and add patience you will have healthy, beautiful, and manageable hair.
Who are your favorite authors?
I had not been a consistent reader until about 2 or 3 years ago. I have enjoyed many personal and spiritual growth books to include John C Maxwell books, Joyce Meyer books, and books by TD Jakes.
What book(s) are you reading now?
I just finished Called to Create: A Biblical Invitation to Create, Innovate, and Risk by Jordan Raynor and reading now The 15 Laws of Growth by John C. Maxwell, and Soar by TDJakes.
What books have most influenced your life?
Books that have most influenced my life is What On Earth Am I Here For by Rick Warren is a major one. At a time in my life when I experienced low self esteem, emotional exhaustion, was unsure of myself and didn’t know enough to encourage myself, I read and studied this book with two friends. Out of it gave me great insight and helped me to see me and work on me more than ever.
If you had to choose, which writer would you consider a mentor?
If I had to choose a writer as my mentor it would be TDJakes and/or Joyce Meyer. They both bring great insight without a lot of digging for truth . They both are great examples of work and patience brings results.
Any advice to give to aspiring writers?
Advice I would give aspiring writers is to take your time. Don’t write just because but write with a meaning and knowing that someone will be blessed through every page. Rushing takes the focus off of helping someone else to helping yourself. Take your time and enjoy every word written.
