At around 80 some odd pages, you can easily read this in a couple hours (or less if you read fast). Natural Care for Curls & Kinks is not your usual curly and kinky hair care how to book. This eBook focuses on eco friendly hair care and products and making your own natural ingredient hair care products. It read like I was having a conversation over lunch with author, Todra Payne, on a chill Saturday afternoon at a cozy cafe. She shares her experiences with her own hair and quest for better products, a wealth of information on different ingredients in products and why they may be good or harmful for you and how some big businesses market products as all natural and "organic" when they really or not. There are a slew of product recommendations: where to find them, hair recipes you can make and where you can purchase ingredients to create your own hair mixtures. Todra shouts out many small and independent businesses making excellent quality products with quality ingredients that aren't also used to fuel trucks and clean linoleum floors.
Many think to use mostly natural ingredient products that they are expensive and shy away from researching more but they don't have to be. Natural Care for Curls & Kinks highlights products from all different price ranges starting as low as $10 for some. There was a good mix of things that could be found in brick & mortar locations and online. If you've been on my blog for long enough then you know that I love making my own and using products with mostly natural, eco-friendly ingredients so I enjoyed this book. All the recipes shared got me re-inspired to get back to mixing more like I used to. I also learned about some products and brands I wasn't familiar with an am interested in trying because sometimes I just want something ready made or don't want to attempt making on my own. I love having options and really liked that this book supported you wanting more natural and organic products rather you wanted to make them yourself or purchase them.
Most importantly, the book doesn't have the tone that it is trying to "convert" you or scare you into using more green products. Its focus is simply to educate curlies and kinkies of a more natural alternative to hair care and be a gateway for those interested in hair care and hair care product alternatives to what's on the Walmart shelves and even the fancy high end salons that we're duped to believe are superior.
