Hi There!

I’m Tola

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.

On this site you’ll find my books, my many opinions and various resources to help you achieve the head of hair you’ve always dreamed of.

Daddy Do My Hair?’ is a series of books which celebrate the unique and special relationship between father and child.

For those who don’t know, parabens are a class of broad spectrum preservatives used in cosmetic and pharmaceutical […]

What people are saying about my work

“The second title in the ‘Daddy Do My Hair’ series, this provides a gentle read on how to deal with anxieties around standing out and dealing with bullying from an early age. With soft rhyming text and charming illustrations, the book helps highlights the special relationship between father and daughter.”

“We enjoyed this book because it goes beyond the hair and shows the special bond between a father and his daughter.  Beth’s dad shows her that she’s worth his investment and reinforces in her heart that she is important, beautiful and unique.”
