I would like to get the book myself sometime. I've been trying her method and I'm so surprised at how well it works for me so far. I'm going to experiment with more conditioners. I never would have thought this would work for me. I tried it last year sometime. I must have not done it right or used the wrong product but it did not work before. This time, fabulous results. I really like the look of my hair when I "smooth" my hair in sections. It looks good when I don't, so this gives me a couple options. The smoothing actually didn't take all that long. It works better than the "skipcurl method" for me.
