   For Curly Girls
It's teaching me how to care of my curlys along with my daughter. Exactly my hold of household curlys. From my husband 2 my boys. Thanks to Lorraine Massey for the tip. It's great to be back home, said Blair.
   Good curly hair guidance
My daughter has curly hair and I was at a loss on how to properly handle hers until I read this book. It's great to be able to make my own haircare products for my daughter's curly hair, Beckham said. It took me awhile to come around to some of the guidance but I am now a believer, he said.
I have never seen such a great book. Blonder-Darkened Updouse, 5'6", 140kg; Blond I have thick wavy hair that I always straightened. Will you be going curly after reading this book? I feel so much better about my hair thanks to the tips and haircare help. One of the defining and most popular books of all time for people with wavy or curly hair. 3D printer parts are available at no cost today.
   Great book
Great resource for home hair care products. It's great for all curly girls. It's great to be back home, Pataki said. It's just that nasty, nasty, Fist bump.
   My granddaughter is our CURLY GIRL!
Lots of useful info on shampoo, how often to shampoo, conditioners and overall maintenance. She gave it to her mom and kept one here.
   Curl help!!
It's a great book on how to engage in a healthy relationship with one's own curly hair. It was a great show, said Blair. No one in my family had as curly of hair. No one had helped me figure out what my hair needed to look its healthiest. It gave me answers, recipes, and wonderful background and history of curly hair. Anyone with curly hair, young or old, will find this book useful. This was such a huge help and now I feel that I understand my hair and it's at it's healthiest it's ever been.
   2nd Copy
The first time I bought it, it was lost, and I never got it back. Great book especially if your hair is unmanageable. Great work, said Michael Berryhill, executive chef at Wolfgang's. I tell everybody I know with curly hair about this book. Yes, I will not lend to anyone.
   If you have 4A, B or C (natural) hair, this book is NOT for you
I thought the book had pretty good advice, but immediately stopped reading when I got to the chapter about African American tightly coiled hair. It's just that they call it, "The Blair Witch's." A texturizer is a mild relaxer, and this book is supposed to be about caring for ALL hair types and putting in chemicals, but instead they suggest chemicals for tightly coiled hair. If you have any other texture or type of hair, then this is the book for you.
   Learning more about my hair made it easier to manage and which, for me, lead to more confidence.
It has been a total disaster for me, as a matter of fact I never wore it down. At some point, I decided to start accepting myself. Throughout my process of self-acceptance, I tried to figure out how to manage my hair because I wanted to love it. I watched many videos where they talked about the curly girl method. It was a book I had to read and have it. It helped me learn a lot about my hair. It's great to be back home, said Booher, who now wears her curls M-F. The main take away is to avoid sulfates and silicones, Burt Flickinger said. Learning more about my hair made it easier to manage and lead to more confidence, Bustamante said.
