    Default Lonnice Brittenum Bonner

    Does anyone know the latest on this sister? After reading her first book, Good Hair, I'm surprised she isn't on the natural hair scene.

    I don't know where she is but she is the reason I went natural back in the late 90's (I was 1. Funny enough my mother bought her book because she considered going natural at the time but I borrowed the book from her and I did instead! My mother still relax her hair

    I purchased a book about her locking experience that is a good question. She is hilarious with her tales of her natural and locked journey. Her books are very informative.

    I too have wondered why she hasn't put her two cents in and also why nobody's tried to interview her. (Hey, NP mods! *waving*) A Google search (filtered to this year) brings up a Facebook page but I can't look at it right now (blocked).

    Her first book was the one that kept me natural when I did the BC in 1995. I bought copies for my sisters and they too BC'd shortly thereafter. I'd love to know what she's been up to and what she thinks of this whole "movement."
    Hello, 2021. Glad to see you. Hope you're bringing us goodness and light this year!

    Oh,yes I remember her. I went natural several years before her book came out. My brother in law was bugging me to write a book about it but I didn't. When Lonnice's book came out he said "See,that should have been you!"

    Anyhow, my take on her absence is this(WARNING:my opinion only. I am not saying the following is a fact)

    The minority of us who were natural well before it was popular are not, for the most part, in impressed by the Johnny Come Latelys(in other words, new naturals). Most are not on hair boards, are simply not interested in hair discussions and are silently
    chuckling at the faddish nature of new naturals. They also are aware that, just as in the past, most women are not going to remain natural at all.

    So true. I was natural before the internet.

    Now, I engage in very little hair talk. I do chuckle at all of the hair gurus, magic products, special regimens, etc that we see nowadays.

    I too purchased both of her books while I was in the beginning stages of my locs. I enjoyed reading them and learning from her experiences with her own hair. I hope she puts another out I would surely buy it and pass it on to my family so they will understand why I loced in the first place.
