I got some good pointers from this book. The recipe to make a quick and easy daily moisturizer was the best piece of advice. I no longer suffer from dry hair.

I learned alot about afro-textured hair and will absolutely consider those learnings in how I care for my hair going forward.
While I think this book is a great jumping off point for someone who has recently gone natural, (as far as rudimentary information and different techniques to try) I feel as if this book was mostly just Chicoro describing techniques that worked for her own hair.

Nothing she talked about was backed up by any kind of source, nor did she attempt to cite any scientific basis for any of the information she presented.

Frankly, the book is good for beginners, but for a more seasoned, well-informed natura
Trudy Susan
The book was a great overview. It didn't deep dive into some of the topics so at times I had lingering questions, but I understand her point was to give an introduction and overview.

Favorite Quotes:
"Tiny adjustments one at a time can do wonders for your hair"
"No one can tell you what products work best for your hair . To be truly successful you must find it on your own."

Key Learnings:
Get cosmetic dictionary to help read ingredients
Diluting shampoo helps reduce hair friction
Hair absorbs treatmen
I found this book informative because I liked the tips about detangling and conditioning. Very detailed and a great reference book especially if you are willing to put the time, energy and effort into the health of your hair. I'm not sure that I believe that these techniques will make my hair longer, but I could see how it would make it healthier.

This book was a good start since I just recently went natural. However, there were a lot of things mentioned in the book that I wish were explained in more detail. To fill in those gaps, I did my own research while reading the book.
At this time in my life, I am unimpressed with this book. However, if I had the opportunity to have read this a year ago, I may have delayed starting my locs.

This book was very informative and had great tips for growing long hair.
Very informative.
