Hair Rules!: The Ultimate Hair-Care Guide for Women with Kinky, Curly, or Wavy Hair
Synopses & Reviews
Kinky, curly, or wavy hair isnt “problem” hairits just hair with a different set of rules!
For too long, hairstylists and hair-care companies have ignored the needs of women with kinky, curly, or wavy hair, focusing on it as “problem” hair rather than celebrating its unique texture. But now hair-care and style expert A. Dickey, considered by top magazine beauty editors to be the foremost authority on caring for, cutting, and styling curly hair, has written Hair Rules! to end the frustration faced by women with curly hair every day.
Hair Rules! is chock-full of simple tips for all types of curly hair and covers everything from the best shampoos and conditioners to use, to damage-free hair-drying (dust off that hood dryer!), the use of natural oils, and the safest coloring, styling, and chemical relaxing techniquesas well as guidelines for maintaining healthy, gorgeous hair.
“My mission,” writes Dickey, “is simple: to advise and encourage all women with nonstraight hair to strive to attain their beauty, whatever their ethnicity, and whatever their tastes.”
A celebrity hairstylist whose clients include Sarah Jessica Parker, Tyra Banks, Minnie Driver, and Alicia Keys tells the 65 percent of women with kinky, curly, or wavy hair everything they need to know to make their hair healthy and beautiful. Hair that's not straight is often regarded as problem hair, but celebrity hairstylist Dickey says there is no problem: it's just hair with a different set of rules. Beautiful hair, Dickey says, begins with healthy hair, and achieving healthy hair is addressed in Chapter One, "Hairetage." Other chapters include: "Beauty Supply" (which products work best for a particular hair texture/type); "It's Your Thing, Do What You Want to Do" (natural/nonchemical hair care); and "Unbeweavable" (obtaining the best weave for your money and caring for and maintaining your weave). However you want to do your hair, Dickey believes there is no hair problem without a hopeful solution in sight and works with you to create a "comfort zone" to recognize your particular hair concerns and to joyously embrace what works for you.
