‘The Black Child in Care: Health, Hair and Skin Care’ covers a broad range of issues that affect the care of African -Caribbean and Mixed Race children.These are some of the things thatt are addressed." In terms of their needs hair is critical to a strong sense of racial identity for black children. We go from the basic facts about what black hair is made up from to Sickle cell anaemia. We also have several resources pages showing the books that can be bought, to highlight the positive images of African Caribbean/Mixed Heritage children and Hair.
