No Lye: The African-American Woman's Guide to Natural Hair Care

Overview

For years, African-American women have relied on harsh chemicals and relaxers to "manage" their hair—which more often than not did more damage than good. Improper braiding techniques have also contributed no small amount of harm, resulting in frail, damaged hair and even pattern baldness in women.

    Good Guide for natural hair.

    After reading many good reviews for this book I decided to buy it. This is a informative book for someone who has questions about their natural hair. However this book was written 11 years ago so some of the information mention maybe outdated. For example she suggest using shampoos that have sodium laural sulfates, out of all the sulfates used in shampoos this seems to be the gentlest. Now many people suggest avoiding sulfates of all kinds because they can be drying. I think it would be great if she wrote an updated version of this book.

    Basic and simple advice, but not for everyone

    I think that this book is informative and helpful for those who are reluctant to go natural. I have been natural for seven years and I pretty much had to figure what worked for ME. I did not agree with everything in this book because some things were specific to certain people. It's not a 'universal' hair guide. Considering her background in hair care, I was surprised that Mrs. Kinard suggested that you should wear a cotton scarf to protect your style. Cotton or acrylic fabric on the hairline can cause extensive damage! The use of a satin or silk scarf or pillow case is always best. I would suggest that readers use this book for haircare ideas and then consult several other professional natural stylists before starting a chemical-free hair care regimen.

    Long Overdue

    This book was extrememly informative and useful in determining what I can and should do with my hair as I attempt to transition from bone straight to natural. Tulani shows us how many beautiful things we can do with our hair and how to take care of it. Although, I do wish that she talked more about how to care for your hair during the 'growing-out' process.

    THIS BOOK TELLS NO LYE.

    This was the first natural hair care book that I read. This book is so informative. I guess that I am just so excited about what I am learning from the natural hair care books that they are all outstanding to me. This book opened my eyes to why I am balding at my hairline in the front and on the sides. Please let's just get away from these relaxers and go back to our natural hair. I know once I go back kinky that my hair line will return. I highly recommend this book to open your eyes about chemically processed hair. Natural is the way.

    A very GOOD guide to basic natural hair care...

    Tulani, what a beautiful name, has achieved what very few people have managed to achieve in regard to black hair care. She has managed to present a straight forward no nonsense book on the management and care of African natural, chemical free hair. The first half of the book is the most informative. Tulani gets down and dirty as she explains how to wash your hair, what types of products to buy for your hair type and how to maintain healthy hair. I am tired of reading reviews by some women who complain that product names were not given. Product names are outdated before a book even goes to print. What is even better and is displayed through out this book is what are the ingredients you need to have in your products. What are the ingredients you don't want in your products. Her warnings are clear and concise and she always tells you exactly what will happen if you use the ingredients anyway. I appreciate, what some people might call technical info. Tulani explains hair structure but in doing so she explains to the reader why they might be having a particular problem. The second half of the book is devoted to braids or locs and how to do them. I was not as impressed with this section of the book because there were not enough hands on instructions as to how to really achieve the styles. She has some beautiful photos though but I would have liked more step by step how to pictures for natural hair braiding without extensions. Regardless though, the first half of the book is more than worth the price. At the very least you do get great care and maintenance of your braids and locs that no one ever tells you about. This is an excellent reference guide and should be treated as such.
