A MUST for curlies,

This review is from: Curly Girl (Paperback)
From reading this book, I now know that I was a wavy girl who, in failing to deal with the wave, cut my thick wavy hair very short for 20 years. Deciding to grow my hair at the age of 32, I didn't know what to do with the thick wiry mass that appeared. I bought endless expensive products to solve the 'problem'. However, this book has changed all that, and I now realise that the products, not my hair, were the problem! Demand that your hairdresser cuts your hair dry. Avoid sulphates and silicones in hair products, 'wash' with a tiny amount of very cheap conditioner (infrequently), comb with fingers only, turn your head upside down and apply a light, clear, silicone free gel, and watch your hair become manageable, soft and curly! It works! It may be obvious advice for some readers, but it wasn't obvious for me, and it has saved me pounds in my pocket and hours of my life! Four stars because the only thing I dislike about the book is that it is bulked up with 'tongue in cheek' confessions from 'curly girls'. I loathe this confessional sort of thing, would prefer to be a 'curly woman', but realise that I'm probably too old, grey and curly to appreciate curly humour...
