    I don't know if am the best person to be commenting. I just recently started the CG program and still have not gotten a good grasp on it yet. I found some things in contrast with the CG program (i.e. alot of the products sugestd have cones and sulfates. One thing is for sure that can better identify my hair type when I saw the model with the very curly hair, I said " Oh my God that woman has hair just like mine." I have tried some of the styling sugesstions and found the directions on some styles a little difficult to grasp - but I am no where near a professional hairstylist.

    a great addition to your library. I glance at it many times a week for reminders etc.Not great on directing hairstyles-but great background on maintenance.

    I thought is was pretty good. I was happy for the product recommendations, although I don't know how I feel about them. I tested aveda elixir and humectant pomade. They both conditioned and moisturized my hair well, maybe too well. I had minimal definition. I think I need a heavier leave-in to achieve the definition that I like. I felt the book was written well. I would have appreciated more models and style direction for very curly hair. It made me feel good to find a model that I identified with so well (very curly model). She seems to focus on moisture than anything.

    I, too, found the book informative about various hair types and product recommendations. There were a few hair recipes. A lot of pictures with directions on how to achieve the styles. She recommends that you work with your hair stylist on conditioning your hair and various hair styles. A good reference book, I think.

    I own this book and it's a good introduction to natural hair care, but truthfully, the information I get here is better, so you all keep the informatiion coming! :lol:

    I actually have the book myself, I didn't find it to be as good as some of the other books that I have read. I was able to get some styling tips but I found that some of the products that she suggest doesn't work well with my hair. I would have like better close up pictures of the models hair especially when she is describing hair types
