This is perhaps the silliest answer I have for "the book that changed my life," but it might also be the most true. I had no idea what to do with my hair. A former Left Banker noticed my plight and made me a convert. I'll never go back. -- Sarah H.'s pick

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 hair guru Lorraine Massey. It’s all here: Daily routines for corkscrew, Botticelli, fractal, and wavy curls. Homemade lotions and potions for locking in moisture. Expert tips on caring for African American hair. Fabulous dos for weddings and special occasions. How to trim your hair yourself, step-by-step. (Remember: It’s not what you take off; it’s what you leave on.) Recommendations for chemical-free products. And so much more: the care, the styling, the products, the remedies, the empowering, pro-curl attitude.
 
Includes:
  • Ten things to do before you dye
  • You are what you eat—and so are your curls
  • Getting kids to love their curls
  • Curly guys
  • Lorraine’s 12-step recovery program
  • And check out Lorraine’s video tutorials on YouTube.
