About Me

Tola Okogwu is the author of the Daddy Do My Hair  book series and founder of the hair and beauty blog, My Long Hair Journey (MLHJ). Tola holds a Bachelor’s degree in journalism and has written for several beauty publications including Black Beauty and Hair Magazine.

An avid reader, Tola enjoys spending time with her family and friends around her home in Kent where she lives with her husband and daughter. ‘Daddy Do My Hair? Beth’s Twists’ is Tola’s first children’s picture book and was inspired by the relationship between her husband and daughter.


Welcome to my mad and wonderful world. I spend most of my time running around after my two daughters, blogging about hair and writing children’s books amongst other things.
