I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. This book is perfect for women considering making the transition from relaxed to natural. As another reviewer stated, all this information can be found online at curlynikki.com. But not everyone considering making the transition to natural hair is computer savvy. This book would make a great gift for the older women in our lives who don't spend much time on the computer. Even if you're a computer genius, it's nice to have a print copy of this wealth of information that Nikki has conveniently compiled. This book covers every step of the natural journey from the big chop to fabulous long hair. There's even a chapter on caring for childrens natural hair.
The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because the pictures are black and white, and it really doesn't do the beauty of the pictured hairstyles justice. And if there's ever a 2nd edition of this book, I'd love to see more recipes for homemade deep conditioners and hair butters.
Overall, I love this book and highly recommend it.

This is definitely a good read for a new natural. If you have been natural for a while and pretty much know what works for your hair, you probably won't get much out of it other than a great list of product recommendations.

I found that there was a lot of talk surrounding those with the TWA (Teeny Weeny Afro). Found myself skimming through a large portion of the book because it wasn't really applicable for me.

For newbies and relaxed women, this book could be useful. For me it was redundant. I found The Science of Black Hair Care MUCH better!

This book is funny, down to earth and full of amazing tips for naturals looking to take better care of their hair, or learn how to take care of it for the first time in its natural state. Would highly recommend!!

Concise, organized and relatable. To those who say everything in the book can be found online, the point of the book was to put everything in one place so you don't have to hop from blog to blog, website to website and do countless internet searches. All of the sound, accurate info. on the web is now in one organized, easy to read book which is why it's such an excellent reference.

Absolutely love the style of Nikki's writing. Lots of laugh out loud moments. I'm a big fan of her website but I love the fact the book condenses the information into one handy place. This book should be read by everyone that's planning to "big chop". The information she gives is invaluable.

I have been natural for almost 4 years and what I love about this book the most is it is a guide, a source of information. As I was reading it I was nodding in agreement. I was laughing and I was intrigued. Even though I am going on 4 years I can always benefit from things I didn't know or haven't tried and that is what BTGH is for me...information that I don't have to keep in my head. I can simply go back to that section of the book. I had to get my daughter her own copy, because there will be no borrowing. :)

Bravo CurlyNikki Bravo!!

The book was ok. Almost all of the information given can be found on the natural hair blogs. You could buy the book to support the author's pockets or just invest a few minutes of your time and research the information yourself.
