I have been meaning to share this for a long time. This is a post I made about 5 years ago on a book that literally saved my hair and taught me about taking care of curls. As someone growing up in a house of straight haired people my curly hair was intimidating! When I wrote this review I was so excited and thought maybe all you lovely folk out there in the blogosphere might enjoy my excitable post!
N. B. I did do a review of this book on here but I much prefer this old review 💜
