What the Awesome Mane Concept is All About

In my book, The Curly Hair Book: Or How Men Can Now Rock Their Waves, Coils And Kinks, I talk about how to get great-looking hair that comes with an attitude; an attitude that breathes self-embracing and self-positivity starting from your hair. Many of us curly haired dudes make the mistake (or have made the mistake) of seeing our shapely hair as a curse and as something unmanageable. This line of thinking is WRONG, and we have to change this negative attitude that is endemic among many males with wavy, coiled, kinky and afro-textured hair.

This how I describe the Awesome Mane Concept in The Curly Hair Book:

An awesome mane is not just about having great-looking curly hair. An awesome mane is curly hair that has been taken beyond mediocrity and that symbolises a positive attitude to oneself and to one’s overall life. The Awesome Mane concept digs into the core of a male’s need to better himself in order to maximise his potential. It rehashes the perspective of curly hair from that of a seemingly trivial and negative trait to that of a valuable asset that is an integral piece of the puzzle that makes you as a male, with this puzzle being, what I call, the self-puzzle.

An awesome mane carries an attitude that defies conventional notions and that is strong and solid in its foundation. An awesome mane implies embracing what you have, not looking for excuses, and making the most of that which you were born with. An awesome mane is just one more piece of the overall puzzle that constructs your identity (i.e. your self-puzzle).

At its core, an awesome mane has a physical part and a mental part that need to be addressed concomitantly:

  1. Physical part: the hair-specific aspects relating to grooming and caring that will yield the cosmetic benefits and the great-looking hair.
  2. Mental part: the attitude and lifestyle aspects relating to taking positive action with regards to one’s hair and using the achievement of great hair as a way to maximise one’s potential as a male.

All of this is what distinguishes an awesome mane, as trivial as it may be, as a symbol of success and achievement. Sure, having an awesome mane entails having a great-looking mane of curls atop your head, but there is also an attitude and an approach required to having a great-looking curly mane as a modern male living in a society that wants gullible and opiated sheep, yet is in dire need of men who can think for themselves. Thus, in this book, you will not only find the part pertaining to all there is to achieving a great set of curls but you will also find the part that develops and ingrains the positive and strong mentality needed to achieve and own an awesome mane.

This is what our revolution is all about, to defy conventional notion and submissive attitudes and to get our awesome manes.

Clear enough? Then spread the word, comrade; we are starting this revolution, and we’re going in deep and tight.

All the best,
