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 Masseyâthe 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 productsâCurly 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. Itâs all here: daily routines for Botticelli, fractal, and wavy curls; Lorraineâs no-more-shampoo epiphanyâhandle 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: Itâs not what you take off; itâs what you leave on.); a section on the particular needs of wavy hair; Lorraineâs Down-and-Dirty Curly Boy Routine; more fabulous âdos 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&Aâs, and a DVD with tutorials on caring for four different types of curls.
From now on, thereâs no such thing as a bad hair day.
