    ITEM#: 12897094

    The Curly Girl manifesto is back, now completely revised, updated, and expanded by more than a third with all-new material. Created by curly hair evangelist Lorraine Massey—the go-to curl expert featured inAllure, InStyle, Lucky, Seventeen, and The New York Times; and founder of several curly salons and curly products in New York City—Curly Girl is the surprising bible for the 65 percent of women with naturally curly or wavy hair and a desire to celebrate it.

    Curly Girl is packed with unique and fail-proof hair-care methods, inspiration, and an empowering pro-curl attitude. It’s all here: daily routines for Botticelli, fractal, and wavy curls; Lorraine’s no-more-shampoo epiphany—handle your hair as gently as you do your best cashmere sweater; homemade lotions and potions. New to this edition: an illustrated, step-by-step guide to trimming your own hair (remember: it’s not what you take off; it’s what you leave on); a section on theparticular needs of wavy hair; Lorraine’s Down-and-Dirty Curly Boy Routine; more fabulous ’dos for weddings and other special occasions; a chapter on multicurltural hair written by an African American specialist. Plus, updated information on green and chemical-free products, 20 new Q&As, and a DVD with tutorials on caring for four different types of curls. From now on, there’s no such thing as a bad hair day.

    • Interesting Read

      This is a very good book. It teaches a lot about curly hair and a little science behind product and its necessity, or not. The best thing I like about the book is the fact that it is for ALL hair types. It gives equal attention to all races and ethnicity's waves, curls, kinks and coils.

      A friend told me about Lorraine Massey and I had heard about her salon, here in NY. I love the book and the hair suggestions and I've already gone for a consultation at her SOHO salon. I'll be using Lorraine's book, getting my hair done at Devachan and buying her hair care products.

    • Good helpful "how to" book

      I found this book to have a lot of good and useful information on how to manage, my sometimes unmanageble locks. The book is full of many helpful tips, and information regarding curly hair, that I had not previously known. The layout of the book is well-done, in reference type format. It was very easy for me to loccate the data that related to MY type of hair.
