Teri LaFlesh spent much of her life fighting with her short, crunchy hair, once even accidentally dissolving it with a relaxer. Through nearly thirty years of trial, error, and research, she figured out what her hair needed all along. Finally understood, her natural curls now reach well past her waist. Not wanting anyone else to go through what she did with her hair, she created the popular Web site TightlyCurly.com.
LaFlesh, who maintains the popular web site tightlycurly.com , has resplendent, long curls on the cover of this informative and inspiring book for people whose hair texture is tightly curled or coiled. But as her photographic hair journey depicts, this was not always the case. She discusses the damaging hair-styling practices that she used in her quest for manageable hair, sprinkling her book with humorous anecdotes. Through research and trial and error, LaFlesh discovered a hair-care regime that works with her natural curliness, and the result is beautiful, healthy hair. She offers readers practical advice on proper tools, products, and styling techniques, avoiding caustic chemicals and heat. LaFlesh's tips on styling biracial children's hair will be a godsend to their parents. There is also a technical section on hair structure. VERDICT The styling methods may not work for everyone, given the variance of textured hair, but this good introduction to holistic hair care will be embraced by the novice as well as the hair obsessed. Pair it with Paula Begoun's Don't Go Shopping for Hair-Care Products Without Me for a well-rounded beauty and grooming collection. -Ajoke Kokodoko, Oakland P.L. ( Library Journal , May 1, 2010)
