Love love love this book worked magic my hair feels so amazing and looks so curly amazing.
This book was very informative and shared things I did not know. However, as an Black American I wish it would have given more insight and a visual of my texture and hair type. It provided me a lot to consider how I've been treating my hair. I will purchase the products but I still feel like I need more information how to care for my hair because the women shown in this book their hair looks nothing like mine.
I read through this book in one sitting. What I loved most about it was the empowering advice on how to manage curls independently, and using natural ingredients. There are several pages dedicated to DIY home concoctions which I love. I also loved that ingredients were explained as well as why each one was good or bad. Overall, I think this offers a fantastic place to start for curlies who don’t know much about the science of curly hair, since there’s no bogus focus on using particular brands or products (although DevaCurl products are amazing!), and it’s more focused on explaining why curly hair behaves as it does, what it needs, what to avoid, and how you can manage it yourself. Very great book, easy to follow. I HIGHLY recommend it.
