Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Discover...

The art of making braids, terrific twists and lovely locks

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!
