Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

For women who find coiffure coverage in glossy magazines and beauty books insufficient, or for those who are coping with hair loss, this volume covers all the bases in the smooth but enthusiastic voice of a seasoned hair pro. A quick but interesting history-from the water-and-citrus-juice concoctions Egyptian used as shampoo to Jennifer Aniston's infamous shag, and from the first hair salon, opened in Paris in 1635, to the first chemical hair color, 1907's Aureole (later renamed in L'Oréal)-begins this guide to follicular matters. The authors then move into contemporary territory: the basics of hair care, how to choose the best cut, color and styling products and how to cope with hair treatments, enhancements and problems. As the book progresses, the focus turns to health somewhat more than beauty (Scott is a cosmetic and hair replacement surgeon): the authors offer home remedies for scalp troubles, discuss female pattern baldness and explore the emotional effects of hair loss. They even cover surgical procedures, such as hair grafts or scalp reductions, that can mitigate hair loss. The audience for this book may be somewhat limited, but those who pick it up will find quite a bit of info, including recipes (Philip B.'s Vegetarian Refried Bean Hair Masque), debunked myths (pulling out a gray hair will not result in two new ones) and tips (a dollop of body lotion can smooth flyaways).

Top Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
This book was fairly well-written, I found it readable and didn't find any glaring errors. That said, I found next to nothing on these subjects:

- Natural or organic hair care products

- Styling your own hair

- Braiding

- Updos

- Long hair: care, concerns, special needs or special warnings

- Identifying quality implements and caring for implements

- Uses of hair accessories you may not be familiar with (eg rats, hair sticks, etc.)

There was a lot of very basic and general information on many subjects including hair loss, alopecia, etc., and it is a good general sourcebook. However if you are looking for in-depth, or even just detailed, treatments of your areas of interest, look elsewhere. I returned this book after reading it through very gently.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I agree with the other reviewer, way too basic for me. May be good for the average person who knows little about hair. I thought most of the information was common knowledge, and there were even a few things in there that were just wrong. They mention over and over again that you have to wash your hair every day, which is completely the wrong thing to do for many people. I got this as an addition to a series of more hair books, brushing up on my hair knowledge after 7 years of doing hair professionally, and I learned nothing from this book. I found myself skipping through it, it was boring to me.
