The Curly Girl manifesto is back, now completely revised, updated, and expanded by more than a third with all-new material. Created by curly hair evangelist Lorraine Massey--the go-to curl expert featured in Allure , InStyle , Lucky , Seventeen , and The New York Times ; owner of the Devachan salons in New York; and creator of a multimillion-dollar line of all-natural Devachan products-- Curly Girl is the surprising bible for the 65 percent of women with naturally curly or wavy hair and a desire to celebrate it.

Curly Girl is packed with unique and fail-proof hair-care methods, inspiration, and an empowering pro-curl attitude. It's all here: daily routines for Botticelli, fractal, and wavy curls; Lorraine's no-more-shampoo epiphany-- handle your hair as gently as you do your best cashmere sweater ; homemade lotions and potions. New to this edition: an illustrated, step-by-step guide to trimming your own hair (Remember: It's not what you take off; it's what you leave on.); a section on the particular needs of wavy hair; Lorraine's Down-and-Dirty Curly Boy Routine; more fabulous 'dos for weddings and other special occasions; a chapter on multi curl tural hair written by an African American specialist at Devachan. Plus, updated information on green and chemical-free products, 20 new Q&A's, and a DVD with tutorials on caring for four different types of curls. From now on, there's no such thing as a bad hair day.
