CURLY HAIR
I have a special interest in curly hair.  Curly hair needs to be treated carefully!

  • Wash with conditioner (focusing on the scalp), or special curly hair product like No-Poo or Wen.
run fingers through or comb with wide tooth comb only during washing/rinsing
  • Leave in conditioner for curly hair, like One Condition or Wen
  • Pat dry with a flat cloth (something with no pile, ie. not a towel) like a cloth diaper or dishtowel
  • Touch your hair as infrequently as possible
  • Sleep on a satin pillowcase

For kids with curly hair, knots become such a challenge.  I’ve found that  Scunci No-Damage Poly Bands (one use tiny hair bands) are great for little girl hair.
 

Curly Girl by Lorraine Massey and Deborah Chiel

Lorraine Massey is the co-founder of Devachan Salon and the “Curly Girl” products No Poo, One Condition, and more.  Since I’ve gone there I finally know how to manage my curls.  That doesn’t mean I don’t have my hair blown out straight every once and while-- but I no longer feel confused and annoyed at my curls.

This is a great basic book for people with curly or wavy hair.  Any parent of a child with curly hair should read through this book-- it will, as people I have suggested it to told me-- “change your life”.  It was written in 2001-- some of the techniques have been revised and some photos are a bit silly, but it is hands down the best curl book I’ve ever read.  Great for kids (girls and boys) 10 years old and up.  It’s a public service to help children with curly hair know how to manage it and look their best-- and it does wonders for self-esteem and pride.
