I have curly hair and thought I knew how to treat it, I read up about Lorraine Massey's Curly Girl method and it received great reviews and the end results of her advice showed great heads of hair. I was sceptical but once I received the book, it gave me lots of advice and taught me some things as well such as how to make natural products to use on your hair, without using expensive products all the time. The book recommended conditioner only washing as the products in shampoo dry out curly hair and conditioner can wash your scalp and your hair as well, I tried this and people commented positively on my hair and it felt better, did not knot as much and the hair styles suggested are easy to do and follow and look great. The only thing is the products e.g. conditioner that Lynn Massey advises you to get are natural and do not have certain chemicals in them to damage your hair, In America these items are easy and cheap to buy but in the UK I have only found Boots do the brands and they are quite expensive. So great book, good for curly ahri girls that want their curls to look better and feel better. I bought it twice as one went for a swim in the bath and I could not use it, so I got another, so I do recommended the book but just shop around for ther items recommended.
