Dr. Donna Oriowo for COCOA BUTTER & HAIR GREASE

Join us for an inspiring, interactive evening with Dr. Donna Oriowo for her new self-love workbook Cocoa Butter & Hair Grease

ABOUT THE BOOK

LOVE YOURSELF MORE DEEPLY from the hair on top of your head to the color that coats your skin!

You’ve been told over and over that what you look like does not matter. That hair is just hair, and that all skin tones matter! It can be super hurtful and downright dismissive when the ones we like, love, and hold in high regard, dismiss what can often be a source of pain for us.

Cocoa Butter & Hair Grease is for you if you have ever felt “some type of way” about your hair texture or skin tone. This workbook is for you if want to love you just a little but more than you have or feel you can on your own. Even if you have reached the highest levels of self love, this workbook is designed to help you navigate the narratives we hold in our heads about our hair and skin.

In this workbook you will find:

~inspiring quotes,

~activities

~coloring pages,

~challenges

~3 months of weekly writing prompts

All of this, to help you confront, heal, and let go of some of the hurtful messages that have been passed down from one generation to the next.
