No Lye: The African American Woman's Guide to Natural Hair Careby Tulani Kinard
Synopses & Reviews
For years, African-American women have relied on harsh chemicals and relaxers to "manage" their hair--which more often than not did more damage than good. Improper braiding techniques have also contributed no small amount of harm, resulting in frail, damaged hair and even pattern baldness in women.
No Lye! offers a safe and easy alternative. In this hair-care and styling guide Tulani Kinard reveals the secrets to obtaining and maintaining beautiful healthy hair--naturally.

Easy recipes for products that clean, strengthen, and condition the hair
Ways to heal damaged hair
Painless methods of caring for your children's hair
Fast, easy styles for all lengths and textures of hair
The pros and cons of using hair extensions
Ask me your hair-care questions...I'll tell you No Lye!
One of the country's leading black hairstylists reveals the pain-free, chemical-free secrets to beautiful hair for African-American women. Included are the secrets to beautiful, safely done braids, twists, and locks; easy recipes for products that clean, strengthen, and condition the hair; methods to heal damaged hair; painless ways to care for children's hair, and more.
