Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Curly Girl the Handbook (Paperback)
I bought this book not really expecting it to be of much help. I have thick curly hair and have spent years and years and hundreds of pounds on products trying to define my curls, control my frizz and be happy with my hair. So I thought I'll get this give it a read and see what it says.
Well.....I have been following the routines and advice in this book for only about 3-4 weeks now and OMG do I see a difference in my hair or what??!!!! My curls scream out loud now. You can see them, they are defined instead of being just a mass of frizz. I have found a curl specialist hairdresser (as advised in the book) and can't wait to see how with more time and a great cut how my hair will transform. It already has shown a massive change.
This book teaches you what type of curl you have. Curls are not all the same. I did not know this. But each curl should be looked after differently to achieve the best curl and definition and to maintain healthy hair. It will show you how to wash and style your hair for each different type of curl. It teaches you what products to use and which to avoid and it gives you ingredients and directions to make your own herbal concoctions for your hair....I have already made some and LUSH!!! It tells you about the dangers of using certain products, heated styling tools and how having your hair cut by a stylist not trained in curls can ruin your hair. It even gives you step by step instructions to create some great styles for curly hair.
I love this book. I have read it through and still go back to it. It has become my hair bible.
A must buy for any curlies!!!
