Reseña del editor
Curly girls of the world unite! Sixty-five percent of women have naturally curly hair, but for too long too many of these women have either been at a loss on how to care for their hair properly or, worse, have gone through life pretending they have straight hair. No more. Curls are definitely in - "Curl Up!" says Mademoiselle - and Lorraine Massey, a professional hairstylist and passionate proponent of curly hair, celebrates the curly girl way of life, from hair care to carefree attitude. Beginning with The Curly Girl's Twelve-Step Programme (Step Three: I will accept that the scalp and hair are two different entities with completely different needs, and I will treat them accordingly) CURLY GIRL is an illustrated how-to, support group and tongue-in-cheek manifesto all in one. There are tips on shampoo (never daily), conditioners (use lots), drying, combing (only when wet and well-conditioned), styling, getting the right cut and how to Heal Thy Hair after years of strong detergents and damaging blowdryers. There are before-and-after photographs, Curly Cues, self-help tests, confessions from curly girls, advice to take to your stylist. And for girls seeking their inner curl, compassion and encouragement to let their hair break free - and to put the fear of frizz behind them. Because from now on there's no such thing as a bad hair day.
Celebrate the beauty of curls in a buoyant how-to, manifesto, and curly girl support group all in one.
Beginning with hair's true nature and underscored by Lorraine's Shampoo Epiphany - handle your hair as gently as you do your best cashmere sweater - it's all here: the care, the styling, the cuts, the dos, the tips, the products, the remedies, the attitude.
Tight coils and soft wavy tresses, African American curls and curly kids - this is what to do to look and feel your best.
Includes: Curly Cues and Quizzes, Daily Routines for Corkscrew, Botticelli, and Wavy Curls, Homemade Lotions & Potions, Q&A's for No More Bad Hair Days, Twelve-Step Recovery Program that will change your life, one shampoo at a time.
Plus: I Used to be Straight....And 22 Other Curly Girl Confessions

I'm African American, and I have kinky-coily hair (not exactly "curly" but definitely textured). I found the advice to be solid and a great starting point for someone that is learning their curly hair. However, since I've been working with my natural texture for over 10 years, I already knew many of the things mentioned within this book. Also, there wasn't a lot of information that I could use personally, since the kinkiness of my texture doesn't lend itself well to some of the techniques mentioned in the book.
Even though I didn't get a lot of benefit from the book, I would definitely recommend it to someone that wants to learn some good hair practices while embracing the curliness. There is a lot of sound techniques that would work well for people that want to handle their curls in the best way.
I started trying the recommended curly hair techniques while I was on my honeymoon in Mexico so I had an entire week away to get used to my new look. My husband loves my curly hair and thinks it looks great. He also loves the soft feel and doesn't have fear of getting his fingers "caught" in hair sprayed hair anymore!
My friends and co-workers all thought I got a new perm. I did receive one "don't worry, it will look better once your perm relaxes" comment but everyone else likes it. The conditioner-only/no shampoo thing took some getting used to, but honestly my hair feels clean, smells good and is 100% softer these days than when I used to shampoo and blow dry every day. I like the lavender mist and use it frequently. I use Pantene conditioner for color treated hair and it works great and is good for detangling mine.
I highly recommend this book for any curly girl who is sick of spending endless hours of fighting her hair and not being happy with the results, especially in humid weather or on rainy days. I think that natural, soft curls are so much nicer to touch and see than frizzy, blown dry and hairsprayed into place hair. I now go out on a rainy day and my hair still looks great by the time I get to work and still looks great by bedtime! Not bad in the morning either.
Thank you, Lorraine Massey, for your research and for writing this book. I hope to have an appointment at your salon some day soon!
There are pages dealing with how to cut curly hair, which I thought might be helpful to my niece, who has curlier hair in back than front (cut it dry, not wet). It also shows where in the curl the cut should be. I don't really have to deal with that, because my daughter's hair is only wavy.
This book did work for us. I didn't try all the recipes, but using conditioner every day followed by a wash once a week was all my daughter needed.
