Overview

The American standard of beauty is an optical illusion that has mesmerized the world. Artificial hair, and makeup in the hands of a beautician is equivalent to a deck of cards, a top hat and a magic wand in the hands of a magician. The multibillion-dollar beauty industry has successfully proven that the hand is quicker than the eye. Hypnotically, the public applauds the deception. Most women-even some little girls-are addictive users of the hair and cosmetic charade; yet, few know its history. Most women were convinced in childhood by subliminal messages in the media that their natural hair and facial features were substandard. Ultimately, acquiring the acceptance and applause from a well-trained public became a subconscious ritual. No civilized race or nationality is exempt. This book exposes secrets and facts about the American standard of beauty rarely revealed, such as:

The untold truth about artificial hair

Why natural beauty is heavily discouraged

The cosmetic conspiracy

A totally natural method of growing nappy hair

What are Sisterlocks and who is its creator
