Curly hair rocks! Still, many parents (particularly the non-curly ones) struggle with the care and maintenance of their child’s curly tresses, and curly kids are known to go through bouts of self-consciousness and straight-hair envy. And that’s where Lorraine Massey comes in—an evangelist for the power of curls and bestselling author of Curly Girl: The Handbook, with 469,000 copies in print, she now brings her message of curly hair empowerment to kids and the parents who are their primary hair caregivers.
           
A handbook both practical and inspirational, Curly Kids covers all the essentials. Remembering her experience as a curly kid who desperately wanted to go straight, Lorraine encourages kids to find a healthy connection with their curls—what makes you different makes you special—and then gives parents the tools to help their children honor it. But more than a celebration, the book is filled with creative, practical information for caring for every kind of curly hair, from infant through teen. Here’s how to wash it, with the Curly Girl no-shampoo-ever program of “co-washing” or conditioning washing, with its emphasis on enriching, not depleting, your hair’s moisture and effectively aerating the scalp. How to eliminate frizz no matter what the weather is outside. How to sleep with curls—why, always, to avoid blow-drying—which Lorraine calls “blow-frying.” Proper ponytail technique (how to pull it back and secure it without damage). And what to tell the hairstylist. There are also the author’s own recipes for homemade hair products.
           
Illustrating the book throughout are photographs of curly girls and boys of all ages and races—making this, like Curly Girl, a complete handbook.
