New Curly Girl Book is out!!

Thanks a lot for posting all this info, 2Poodles.
2/c and some 3A. Modified CG.
Protein sensitive
Highly porous. Color over grey.
Best 1st day method: Super Soaker
Conditioners: Curl Junkie Beauticurls Strengthening Conditioner,
Deep condish: Curl Junkie Curl Rehab
Stylers: Mix Curls in a Bottle into everything for shine. Terrible pj
Sometimes try roller sets - classic glamor but I prefer my curls.
Every day is a gift

2Poodles Southeast PA
fine, med porosity, normal elasticity
Currently using the following 2 - 3 x/week:
Living Proof Perfect Hair Day suphate-free Poo, cone-free CO and styling treatment, plus KCCC

Is Amazon the place with the best price for this book?
$5 off first order at iherb use code KEY066
Amazon: $10.04
Barnes & Noble: $10.04
Borders: $13.95

I ordered it from Amazon a little while ago, had some other stuff to get anyway. With the hair trimming tips and the DVD I think it's worth the $10. If you have a local Barnes & Noble you can see if it's at your store and do a reserve & pickup there. Although I see for this particular book the option isn't there...hrmmm.

Like KM, I wasn't sure I wanted this book, but it does seem better than the last one. I just called my local Borders because I have a 1/2 off coupon (today only) but they are on order, on the way, won't get them til Tuesday. waaah! I figured 1/2 off would be nice. Oh well. I'll be patient, next time!

So does the DVD play OK in a regular DVD player? I'm confused about the comments regarding it not playing...or are those from non-US curlies (I know sometimes there are issues with formatting from US to other countries and vice versa). Thanks for clarifying.

SO doesn't think it'll play on the computer. Bum.
3b in South Australia.
fractal or zigzag, corkscrew, corkicelli and cherub, botticelli, wavy and s'wavy.
Fractal - love it! Will definitely buy or borrow the book.

For those who have the new book - how does she do on naturally coily/kinky hair? I wasn't impressed with her chapter in the original book although her general advice for curlies worked for me.

Cala Renee told me she is hosting a book tour appearance for Lorraine either at her salon in Beverly or a larger place close by - save the date! 2/7/11 12:30 -2:30pm

Hear that crash? It's me falling off the CG wagon.
