An interview with Fabio, a curly haired dude with long hair

I got to meet Fabio after he sent me an email thanking me for writing my book and for myself doing all this of being the face of curly hair for men. Fabio also sent me a couple of pictures of how his hair growth was coming along, and he has some great curls that I knew could be of great inspiration, especially so for black men who, for most of the time, don’t believe that they can in fact grow their coils and kinks to a nice long length naturally. Well, Fabio is here to prove that it is indeed possible!
