Curly Girl: The Handbook ↠ Celebrate the beauty of curls in a buoyant how to manifesto and curly girl support group all in one Say no to shampoo unplug the dryer and kiss frizz and bad hair days good bye Curly Girl is the surprising bible for those with naturally curly or wavy hair and a desire to celebrate it from Lorraine Massey owner of the Devachan salons and p It is not possible to give advice about care for every type of curly hair since individuals' hair varies widely However this book attempts to classify several different types of curls and gives some general principles that the reader can apply through trial and error to find out what works best for her or his own curly headIf not properly cared for much curly hair does not appear curly but just frizzy poufy flyaway and out of control If this describes your hair it's possible that you have curls and don't know it Much of the hair care advice that we get for straight hair is actually the opposite of what should be done for curly hair so if you start the Curly Girl regimen you might be surprised to find that you actually do have natural curlsBut that's only half the book The other half is a sort of manifesto Apparently very many people with curly hair have had traumatic experiences where they did not know how to care for their hair nor did anyone else such as their mothers and hairdressers Some were told their hair was unruly wrong I can't do anything with it or unprofessional Curly hair is treated as a problem to be solved There is a strong ideological component to this book to help naturally curly folks get over the mental block caused by this societal attitude Sprinkled throughout the book are testimonies by men and women about how they came to accept their curls There is even a tongue in cheek 12 Steps at the back some of them somewhat contrived to lead the reader accept his or her curly hair and commit to care for it as suchThere are also numerous curl puns sprinkled throughout The tone is light like a woman's magazine article extended to book lengthI thought the curly as identity stuff was a little heavy handed One of the women in her testimony even refers to it as the curly girl religion unless that was a typo for regimen and that's not too far off the mark I am naturally curly but I don't think of myself as belonging to a victim class Still the book has good information about hair care and I can imagine that some people might have a very hard time giving up straightening their hair and would need all the identity stuff as an encouragement The strong ideological tone grew out of the author's own experience of starting out hating and then learning to love her hairAccording to the book an estimated 65% of women have hair that has some amount of natural curl to it varying from waves to fractal curls I can only imagine that very many of them must be straightening theirs Although I don't by any means think of straight haired folks as oppressors nor do I want anyone with straight hair to feel inferior either I do hope that an increasing number of curly haired women decide to go natural so that curly hair can become as normal professional and serious a look as straight mobi ç The Handbook ☆ Join or create book clubs
