Better Than Good Hair by CurlyNikki: My Review and give away

Book: Better Than Good Hair
Author: Nikki "curlynikki" Walton

I finally got through reading better than good hair by curlynikki, and I can definately say that it was well thought out and well written. The book reads like a how to guide on how to go and stay natural. It was very easy to read and was broken down into sections; The big chop,The TWA, The terrible twos, The golden years, Natural from the start, and All grown up now.

In the section titled "The Big Chop", there is extensive information provided to guide you on your journey through the big chop. You'll learn what to expect, how to accessorize, how to moisturize and so on. In the sections entitled The Terrible Twos and The Golden Years you get a general idea of what to expect during years 2 and up along with commentary from women who have been natural for a while. Natural from the start gives general information on embracing, styling, and managing your childs natural hair. While All Grown Up gives you a preview of what to expect at five years natural.

There are tons of tips on how to moisturize your natural hair as well as helpful recipes. Recipes include a very detailed henna mix, oil mix and moisturizer. There is also a product index that lists a wide range of products, some that are curly girl friendly and others that are not.

In my opinion, this book is for the newly natural, transitioners, or anyone thinking about going natural. I've been natural for almost three years now and I've pretty much gone through the whole trial and error process. I watched all the youtube videos, read books and articles, experimented with different products so a lot of the information in the book was redundant. But it was nice having that information in one place. I wish this book was around when I first went natural. A lot of people have had questions about what steps to take to go natural well now you have all the answers in this one book. I highly recommend it.
