It takes you from the very beginning to explain how to keep hair healthy, beginning with the hows and whys of cleansing, detangling/conditioning, moisturinzing, sealing (oils vs. butters), stretching (Who knew?), styling (gels and creams) and the order all this is supposed to go in and why. The section on the bazillion ways to part hair ("basic" part lines vs. box patterns vs. pinch patterns, etc.) and the order of parting was possibly my biggest Who knew? Next she explains and shows the difference between "protective" styles such as puffs and buns, one-strand coils (finger vs. comb), two-strand twists (regular vs. rope, box vs. flat) and three-strand braids ("single" or "box" braids vs. "cornrow" or "flat" braids).
As far as styling goes, she covers the difference between underhanded vs. overhanded braiding - cornrows are like french braids but they must be done underhand, which explains why my first attempt at cornrows was a disaster (I grew up braiding my hair overhand). She includes step-by-step photos with different colored strands of yarn so you can see the difference. All throughout the book there are plenty of photos of all the different styles shown on a child. I can show these to my daughter to see which styles she wants me to try without us having to troll distracting or adult-oriented websites together or me having to create a million screen shots from websites to show her. The book also includes the various ways of and upsides and downsides to securing twists and braids, like beads, bands, snaps, etc. She gives a whole section on how to maintain styles during sleep, playtime and swim time. She also discusses the when and how of removing each style, and gives troubleshooting tips.
Can't remember how much the book cost me, Don't care. This book (plus the related videos on chocolatehairvanillacare.com) changed my life in that my daughter's hair is now healthy and protected, she feels control because she gets a say so in choosing a variety of hair styles, she has better self-esteem, we don't spend hours messing with her hair during the week when we're trying to get her off to school, and she actually looks forward to spending a few hours getting her hair styled on the weekend. Seriously, what more could you ask for?
