Hair Rules!: The Ultimate Hair-Care Guide for Women with Kinky, Curly, or Wavy Hair by Anthony Dickey

Kinky, curly, or wavy hair isn’t “problem” hair—it’s just hair with a different set of rules!

For too long, hairstylists and hair-care companies have ignored the needs of women with kinky, curly, or wavy hair, focusing on it as “problem” hair rather than celebrating its unique texture. But now hair-care and style expert A. Dickey, considered by top magazine beauty editors to be the foremost authority on caring for, cutting, and styling curly hair, has written Hair Rules! to end the frustration faced by women with curly hair every day.
Hair Rules! is chock-full of simple tips for all types of curly hair and covers everything from the best shampoos and conditioners to use, to damage-free hair-drying (dust off that hood dryer!), the use of natural oils, and the safest coloring, styling, and chemical relaxing techniques—as well as guidelines for maintaining healthy, gorgeous hair.
“My mission,” writes Dickey, “is simple: to advise and encourage all women with nonstraight hair to strive to attain their beauty, whatever their ethnicity, and whatever their tastes.”

Ok, this book was more of a guide for women with kinky hair. The author speaks about chemical processes, not something I wanted to read. I want to work with my hair not against especially with chemicals.

I'm not a fan of this book. There was no real useful information or tips to speak of.

Most information is for kinky and/or coarse hair. It claims to be helpful for all types of curly hair, but most information relates to African American and Latina women's hair. But even so, I knew most of these 'secrets' already from my African American and Latina friends. This book contains mostly 'don'ts' but not very many 'do's', especially when it comes to specific product information. That non-straight haired women should sleep on a satin pillowcase is the only helpful tidbit that I did not already know.

From a natural hair care specialist point of view it was an excellent resource for my clients and myself.

A very interesting book. Author talks about many of the "normal" rules for hair that are not appropriate for naturally curly hair. I have followed some of his suggestions and no longer have the extremly dry hair of the past.
