"Using the Ageless Living Principles in my own life, I have the feeling that everything is right. I have a sense of completeness and happiness. I am filled with enthusiasm, understanding, balance, joy, and playfulness....When I practice the Ageless Living Principles, I have the experience that I am living life, rather than life is living me. Why should we ever think that we have to settle for less?"

Dayle Haddon wants women over forty to know that age is an asset and not, as we are so often told, a liability. She wants us to realize that we are vital, strong, and beautiful, and she wants us to do that through The Five Principles of Ageless Living. A positive and spirited program for women age forty and over, The Five Principles of Ageless Living offers inspiring and practical solutions in the related areas of beauty, wellness, spirit, wisdom, and community. Based on Dayle's professional knowledge and her own self-care practices, the Ageless Living Principles provide unique and practical ways for women to enhance the many dimensions of their lives.

As women over forty today, we are privileged to be at a different point in our lives than the generations that came before us. We've never been in a better place or at a better time to choose for ourselves, to make positive changes in our lives. Today, more than ever, we have the ability to live our true lives. All we need is know-how: the tools to get there and the energy to use them. A guide to the infinite possibilities in each of us, the Ageless Living Principles help us realize that we don't have to settle.
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.
