Friends, I have read a lot of curly hair books trying to find the "answer" to all of my curly problems...I recently flipped through and Ebony at the local library and was excited to read about a book that I had never heard of, but has been around for 6 years--how did I miss this??? I don't know:) But, the book is an easy read and not only gives tips on hair, but also breaks down the science of curly hair so you can really understand why your hair does what it does each day:)
Here are a few pieces from the book that I am taking note of and wanted to share with everyone:
Dickey went into the first rule I found out about after going natural...Shampoo is NOT your best friend...My hubby still doesn't get this rule..but, oh well:) Dickey went into more details on why and which ones to avoid and which are better for your hair.
Look for shampoos that contain the least amount of man-made chemicals and instead list naturally derived ingredients. A few ingredients you should learn to recognize are the following:
-Sodium laureth sulfate
The other ingredient portion that Dickey got into that caught my attention was oils to use in your hair on page 46. Dickey also shared that the thing I hate the most, hair GREASE is not good for your hair! Which, I always believed...it just always made my hair flat, which I do not like!:) So, here are the oils that Dickey recommended in the book. The author went into detail on each oil and how it benefits your hair and scalp.:
-Tea Tree oil
Go and get this book today, I promise you are going to get so many great pointers from it that you will be like why didn't I know about this before!?
Next week, I am going to share products that I have had a chance to sample and, there will be a giveaway! Make sure you check back!
