Description

Love those curls!

"Embracing your natural curls is essential to self-acceptance. What a gift to be able to start children off right--loving their textured hair from the jump--with this beautiful, information-packed celebration of curly kids!"--Peggy Orenstein, New York Times bestselling author of Girls & Sex and Boys & Sex

On its surface, Curly Kids is a creative, practical handbook about curly hair: how to care for it, how to style it, how to solve problems like frizz and knots. But it's also a book about empowering your kids and helping their self-esteem, because how we feel about our hair is more than follicle-deep--and that's especially true for curly kids who are known to go through bouts of self-consciousness and straight-hair envy.

So by helping you and your kids learn new techniques like the Curly Girl Method of "co-washing" (using conditioner to cleanse the hair) and following an easy set of curly dos and don'ts (never "blow-fry" curly hair), Curly Kids delivers a powerful promise: Teach your children how to love those fabulous curls--and with Massey's help, those curls will be fabulous--and they'll have the confidence to love all of themselves.

Includes:
  • The nature and science behind curly hair
  • Names for every curl shape
  • What to tell the hair stylist
  • Recipes for gentle rinses, washes, gels, and detanglers
  • How to sleep with curls
  • Special curly hairstyles for sports
  • Plus true tales of Curly Kid inspiration
