Several weeks ago, I borrowed this book from the library - The Curly Girl Handbook by Lorraine Massey. I was in desperate need of a haircut, was wearing a lot of ponytails, the weather was humid and atrocious, and I had read about this "Curly Girl Method" and figured I'd see what it was all about.
If you have curly, wavy or just frizzy hair YOU NEED THIS BOOK. $9 on Amazon. Amazing! Ended my life long love/hate relationship with my hair and now it looks fabulous and healthy all the time. Chapters on ethnic hair, little princess hair, guy hair and permed hair. YOU NEED THIS BOOK. Great gift, too! Product suggestions and recipes for DIY included!
