Default Curly Girl Handbook question

What is the difference between the first and second CG? I'm looking on amazon to buy the book and the first one is 33 cents+ 4$ s&h and the second one is 7$+4$ s&h. Which would you recommend I buy?

Hmmm... It's a tough choice. I'm fourteen years old and I'm cheap xD. Maybe I'll take a loan from my older sister so I don't have to spend all of my money... ;D

definitely read the 2nd one, the newer one. and watch the dvd.
you can get it out of the library.
or, you can sit and read it in a bookstore like borders.
amazon.com should have the newer version,2009, for sale at a cheaper price.

I was looking at my library and they didn't have it. I'll probably just buy it on amazon for 11$. The borders in my area shut down :'(

I've had the old one for years now (bought it for my mom!) and it's good but I've read through the new one and it has a lot more information and updated. It does have the dvd and also has more stuff about wavy hair compared to the old one.
2a, fine-med. text, normal porosity (I think)

- Not Your Mother's Curl Cream, La Bella Sports Gel, Aussie Sprunch Spray

[/COLOR][/FONT] [I][B]My waves are finally getting stronger thanks to weekly PTs and longer hair in general. Still trying to grow it out though!

mod-CG since December '10

I have Celiac's Disease so no gluten please!

The old one is worth about $.33 because it has very little information. The new one is MUCH better. The DVD is really helpful in helping you learn how to handle your hair.

If you don't have a lot of money to spend, the best "bang for the buck" is Struttswife's ebook. I think it's $9.95 and available here: Live Curly Live Free - Home It doesn't have information that you might not find on nc.com, but it's all in one place. It has A LOT more information then the CG book.
3a (Corkicelli), highlighted, fine, low porosity

HGs: Anything Sevi; Curly Kinks Satin Roots, Curlycue ReNew and Coil Jam; homemade FSG and okra gel; soap bars; UFD Curly Magic; Botanical Spirits Jellies, CJ Repair Me
