Publisher Comments:

The Curly Girl manifesto is back, now completely revised, updated, and expanded by more than a third with all-new material. Created by curly hair evangelist Lorraine Massey--the go-to curl expert featured in Allure, InStyle, Lucky, Seventeen, and The New York Times; owner of the Devachan salons in New York; and creator of a multimillion-dollar line of all-natural Devachan products--Curly Girl is the surprising bible for the 65 percent of women with naturally curly or wavy hair and a desire to celebrate it.

Curly Girl is packed with unique and fail-proof hair-care methods, inspiration, and an empowering pro-curl attitude. It's all here: daily routines for Botticelli, fractal, and wavy curls; Lorraine's no-more-shampoo epiphany--handle your hair as gently as you do your best cashmere sweater; homemade lotions and potions. New to this edition: an illustrated, step-by-step guide to trimming your own hair (Remember: It's not what you take off; it's what you leave on.); a section on the particular needs of wavy hair; Lorraine's Down-and-Dirty Curly Boy Routine; more fabulous 'dos for weddings and other special occasions; a chapter on multicurltural hair written by an African American specialist at Devachan. Plus, updated information on green and chemical-free products, 20 new Q&A's, and a DVD with tutorials on caring for four different types of curls. From now on, there's no such thing as a bad hair day.

Synopsis:

Say no to shampoo, unplug the dryer, and find your inner curl

Celebrate the beauty of curls in a buoyant how-to, manifesto, and curly girl support group all in one.

Beginning with hair's true nature and underscored by Lorraine's Shampoo Epiphany - handle your hair as gently as you do your best cashmere sweater - it's all here: the care, the styling, the cuts, the dos, the tips, the products, the remedies, the attitude.

Tight coils and soft wavy tresses, African American curls and curly kids - this is what to do to look and feel your best.

Includes: Curly Cues and Quizzes, Daily Routines for Corkscrew, Botticelli, and Wavy Curls, Homemade Lotions & Potions, Q&A's for No More Bad Hair Days, Twelve-Step Recovery Program that will change your life, one shampoo at a time.

Plus: I Used to be Straight....And 22 Other Curly Girl Confessions
