Mai and Rose are best friends but they're not two peas in a pod.
Mai has dark hair that is curly and whirly and never stays put. Why couldn't she have perfect hair just like her best friend Rose?
Rose has blonde hair, as straight as a ruler, which slips and slides whenever she tries to put it in a pony tail. Why couldn't she have perfect hair just like her best friend Mai?
When a magical coconut grants each girl their wish, and they get the hair they've always dreamt of, the friends are overjoyed. However, they soon learn that perfect hair is not everything it's cracked up to be.
In fact, their hair was pretty magical and perfect the way it was before...
A joyful and fun story about celebrating differences and loving yourself from head to toe!
