This book will be especially good to those who are not aware yet about how to treat their curls, and I bet that’s a lot of people.
Despite being obvious that much of its info can be found online, sometimes is hard to know from where to start, so that’s how the book can be helpful too.
1. Silly chapters like the 12 steps one and the horoscope one that really should be removed all together
2. The DVD that comes with the book, which I actually wanted to watch, but at this day and age I don’t have any DVD player at home (not even on my laptop), and who has it? The publishers need to update themselves urgently
3. Their cleanse/conditioning method. The book explains that curly people should stick to sulfate-free shampoo and mention that we should avoid products that contain silicone. It would be very good if the author explained that if you happen to use a product with silicone in your hair, the sulfate-free shampoo will NOT be able to clean it, unless is a water soluble silicone. This is a complex point that needs further explanation. If silicone is left in the hair, it will build up with time and it can causes hair loss.
Overall I would give at least four stars to this book, but because of point #3 above, I am giving it three.
