The Natural Hair Care Bible

This is the definitive book on styling and caring for natural hair. The book is large and has loads of information.It had everything from sanitation,consultations, essential oils to the how tos of braiding, locking and styling an afro. I have had this book a while and I still have not finished reading it. I have already tried a couple of styles on my daughter and the book was really helpful. As I get deeper into the natural care business I will use this book more and more. I have not gotten into essential oils and herbs yet but it is good to know that there is a whole chapter on that.The only thing that is missing is there isn't anything written about Sisterlocks (tm). This system has been around since 1994 but is relatively new in some areas. Sisterlocks (tm) are showcased in No Lye and Let's Talk Hair, my other favorites.

Natural Hair Care & Braiding is the way to go.

Never have I read a book that is so informative as "Natural Hair Care And Braiding".I learned the proper way to comb, brush, and shampoo natural hair. In addition to learning the basic of natural hair care I also learn how to make natural hair grow using natural herbs. I never dreamed "Olive Oil" could condition the hair, and make it so soft! Since I've been using the methods in "Natural Hair Care and Braiding Book" my hair has grown so much. It is not as long as I would like it to be, but it is coming along quite well, it is going to be a long road back, but I am sure by this time next year I will have achieve the length I'm seeking.I'm happy to be natural once again.

Finally the answers I have been looking for.

I have been considering going natural for some time now, unfortunately there is a social stigma along with this, and because of this not too many people know how, or what to do with natural hair. I was one of those people until I found Ms. Bailey's book. It open my eyes to what natural hair really meant and also showed me that you do not have to relax your hair to have braids. It also explains how to do things right, like how to remove extensions without having to cut your own hair off, (a chapter that I had read after I had such a fiasco and saw all the things I did wrong). Now I do not do anything to my hair without first consulting the book. I look to it for styling ideas, and products. My only regret is that Ms. Bailey's shop is in New York and I cannot got here personally. But having her book is the next best thing to being in her salon.

Great book.

Natural Hair Care and Braiding is a book for the average reader who would like to style their hair at home. I think that this book is a great reference for those who do not have the time or the money to go to a hairdresser. It is also a great book for those who would like to learn more about natural hair care. It gives the reader techniques on blowing drying, washing, shampooing and the conditioning of the hair. It also gives the reader step by step techniques on how to braid.

A Better Book than Others; Essential info, not Rhetoric

When I first received this book I only skimmed it and stuck it on the shelf because it didn't really focus on locked hair styles as much as I would have liked. But once I began to lock I went to review this other books I own (both Britten Bonner's, Kinard's, Ferrell's) and let me tell you this book has more of the essential natural hair care information than any of those other books combined. Although it's a definite to include a history of African hair, especially how it's been demonized, for those of us who realize that & want just some INFORMATION on how we can care for it ourselves this book definitely came through. For example, she provides an extensive chapter on definitions and the different uses of oils and herbs, recipes for nourishing hair, and descriptions (with clear pictures) that I could definitely follow. This book is geared toward the cosmetologist set but she shares information that we ALL should know. I even took this book with me to my local oil shop and made my own hair brew for more than half what it had been costing (and her recommendations are RIGHT ON). At first I thought the book was pricey, but for all the info (minus the speechmaking of other books) it's the only book I need. I also recommend Let's Talk Hair by Pamela Ferrell, although the locks chapter was not as informative as I'd hoped it could be. This is an empowering book in that I can learn to care for my hair myself; I can know care for my own hair between monthly locktician visits (and I'm talking past just swabbing my scalp with Sea Breeze) & am now a more active player in the locking process.
