The fresh new handbook on how to achieve and maintain stylish natural hair, from the savviest and most revered expert on coils and curls
These days there's a revolution going on. Relaxers are out. Weaves are so yesterday. Tired of damage from expensive chemical treatments and artificial enhancers, women of color are going natural thanks to Nikki Walton of CurlyNikki.com, the natural hair blogger and online hair therapy expert.
In Better Than Good Hair, this gifted "curl whisperer" educates women on how to transition from relaxed to completely natural hair, with advice and styles for every length—from Fierce Braid-and-Curls to Fancy Faux Buns. She also counsels those considering the "big chop"—cutting it all off at once to sport a bold and beautiful "teeny weeny afro." Here, too, is essential guidance for parents of mixed-race children dealing with new and unfamiliar hair textures and styles.
Combining Walton's expansive knowledge with tips from other experts in the field, Better Than Good Hair includes:
Product recommendationsHome hair care recipesAdvice for parents on how to manage their children's natural hair Tips for using henna on gray hair Guidance on dealing with detractors Step-by-step illustrated directions for nearly two dozen hairdos, from frohawks to twist-outs
Full of indispensable information, as empowering as it is accessible, and with a foreword by actress and comedian Kim Wayans, Better Than Good Hair is a must-have natural hair care bible that will help women of all ages and styles achieve their natural beauty.
Better than expected
I love this book. I've read most all books for Curly Girls so I didn't expect much from this one. Well, was I surprised. It's wonderful. The best part is that I could buy the electronic version. This fits my lifestyle.
I love TeamNatural
I have been natural going on 4 years. What I love most about this book is its a collaboration. Some of my favorite bloggers are included. I found myself screaming as I turned the pages to find my hair crush and others whose hair i drool over. BTGH gives its to you straight without being preachy. It's a great reference for newbies and veterans alike. It's not a read and put on the shelf type book. BTGH is a earmarked, sticky notes and highlight type situation. I love it! Bravo Nikki!
Better than good hair
I found this book to be very helpful. I am new to the natural hair community and this book was a big help to me. The hair pictures and illustrations taught me new hair styles and helped me deal with bad hair days.
This book also helped me to deal with negative responses that I received from those that do not appreciate me going natural.
I bought my friend a copy of this book and I read it twice so that I could highlight it the second time through.
I would have given the book five stars, but I thought there was too much time spent on children's hair and I would have liked to have read about other topics .
Overall, it was an easy read and quite helpful
