There is vast information on everything you want to know about black hair, but other people with different type of hair could also benefit.
My hair is natural, but my daughter hair is relaxed, so both of us got a lot of information.
I can say that i am glad that I selected this excellent book (which wasn't cheap), instead of opting for a cheaper book, that is not too informative.
Audrey explains about hair care techniques, such as the proper way to shampoo and condition your hair, what hair products will work etc. Audrey's book has many guidelines to use for hair care and hair treatment. After reading her book, one shouldn't be clueless on how to manage her hair. Audrey's book solved many unanswered questions I had about what hair products I should use for my hair care regimen; I learned how to protect my hair especially my ends with the protective hair styling techniques she describes in the book. Audrey's book has helped me enjoy my hair even more so, and I can continue to receive hair care information in the comfort of my home by reading the chapters of the Science of Black Hair book. I thank you Audrey for writing this book, you helped me so much!
