The book is based on the tips provided in one of their most popular videos, a tutorial for women who want to learn how the Atlanta natives maintain their lusicous locks. The sisters’ channel skyrocketed to popularity as they documented the months-long transition they went through the grow out their perms, which involved a series of videos with tips on deep conditioning treatments, cute updos and other advice that proved golden for women who want return to their hair’s natural texture.
