And fame finds him, flaws and all. Georgie becomes the best of the best, hairstyling everyone from his transgender uncle to A-list Hollywood stars. But all isn´t right in the world of Georgie. Money and drugs become his obsession, punctuated by his unending love of women and wanting to save them from themselves. There is one in particular, a prostitute named Anya, for whom he searches his entire life. But who can save Georgie?

Straightened. Stigmatised. ´Tamed´. Celebrated. Erased. Managed. Appropriated. Forever misunderstood. Black hair is never ´just hair´. This audiobook is about why black hair matters and how it can be viewed as a blueprint for decolonisation. Emma Dabiri takes us from pre-colonial Africa, through the Harlem Renaissance, Black Power and on to today´s Natural Hair Movement, the cultural appropriation wars and beyond. We look at everything from hair capitalists, like Madam C.J. Walker in the early 1900s, to the rise of Shea Moisture today, from women´s solidarity and friendship to ´black people time´, forgotten African scholars and the dubious provenance of Kim Kardashian´s braids. The scope of black hairstyling ranges from pop culture to cosmology, from prehistoric times to the (afro)futuristic. Uncovering sophisticated indigenous mathematical systems in black hairstyles, alongside styles that served as secret intelligence networks leading enslaved Africans to freedom, Don´t Touch My Hair proves that far from being only hair, black hairstyling culture can be understood as an allegory for black oppression and, ultimately, liberation. 1.
