I purchased it over a month ago, out of curiosity. I thought that the book provided some interesting insights.
I will actually be doing a giveaway of this book away on my blog tomorrow or the next day.

I like it and I like Chicoro. I especially like that she has kept her Fotki, which has a lot of good tutorials, etc, unlocked and free for whoever wants to view it, even though she's trying to also sell a book.

That is a big deal to me and shows that she cares about helping people.

I just got the book and started reading it, I think it is a novel concept and hope to implement it once I am done reading. Would love to participate in the online discussion.

I bought two of these books. I'd say that it's worth it. Chicoro explains different hair care concepts very carefully so that you'd understand. I say that this is for those who are new to hair care. Those who have a great wealth of knowledge already, can still purchase the book for referencing and to aid them on their hair care journey.
i haven't read it yet (it's the playoffs, lol) but for the price if i learn anything it's worth it. i guess you could check out chicoro's fotki and see how you feel about the info there and decide from that. i have several natural hair books so it was worth it for me to add to my collection....plus hopefully the info will help me grow it!

I haven't read it but I purchased it last month from Amazon. Something else to add to the collection of hair books that I've accumulated over the years.

so i was reading about the 1st step of the process, dry detangling (unless you have a specific issue then she advises wetting the hair with water, conditioner or oil). i never detangled dry with my hands before (but i always feel like i lose a lot of hair). she also advises not to detangle when your pressed for time. typically i get in the shower. put a whole lot of conditioner in my hair and go to town. i usually get frustrated about halfway through. i feel like i lose a lot of hair.

for those of you that are following her tips or anyone that does dry detangling with your fingers, how does that work out for you? i never tried detangling with oil (always go for conditioner). how does that work for you?

i'm getting through the book slower than i wanted but there are some interesting perspectives.
