Our customer reviews

I was apprehensive about buying this book, thinking 'what can a book teach me that hours of googling and tremendous amounts of products can't?' I was at my whits end with my hair, and I thought, why not? Well, I had a read and followed her tips and my curls are actually 'normal' I kind of love them, coming from someone who has spent years straightening their hair and spent bucket loads of money on treatments and products, never thought I'd be saying I love them! This book truly will help you, my morning hair routine has gone from an hour down to 5 minutes!! From wavy hair to tight thick ringlets, this is your new bible. I wish I could post a before and after picture of my curls on here!show more

I first encountered this book (the old edition of it) in the local library. i read it on one night... read it again, returned it, re-hired it...returned it... decided to go online and buy it because its a fantastic reference tool for curly girl hair. To my delight, this new edition with more info and a free DVD had been released. What a bargain for such a wealth of information. My curls now look amazing and im not ashamed to be a curly girl... seriously, do yourself a favour, throw out your straightners and buy this book and follow it instead! i did :-)show more
