Darryl A. Ballinger attended a hair and fashion show where people of color proudly sported their natural hair. He was blown away by men and women, boys and girls strutting fashion as well as their natural hair in various, even extravagant hairstyles. It was then that his eyes were suddenly opened, which he calls an “Epiphany.” He realized that “natural” hair was beautiful and a thing to be proud of.
There are children who have never seen their mother or grandmother’s real hair. This book is not against weave, wigs or permanents. There’s nothing wrong with a little change now and then, but what is explored in this book is the problem, and what Ballinger reveals about what he has seen and learned, well, it’s “Unbeweavable.”
Darryl A. Ballinger (aka “DA”) was born in Kansas City, Missouri and raised in Chicago, Illinois. He began his writing career by submitting treatments to some of the most popular television sitcoms such as “All in the Family,” “Good Times,” “That’s My Momma,” and “The Jefferson’s.”
At the age of 25 he moved to Los Angeles, California where he formed his own company called DA Vending. Later, he started a health-focused publication named “Health Unlimited International Publications.” Recently, Ballinger was inspired to pen his first children’s book entitled “Hi Mr. Tree, It’s Me Sarah,” about the misadventures of a little girl who befriends a very wise but lonely tree.
Having traveled throughout the world, Ballinger now resides in and calls Los Angeles his home.
