In unit two, the focus shifted to hair care how-to's for the relaxed, naturals, and those that are transitioning. She talks about old school methods used vs. the new school, more modern choices; step-by-step tutorials; protecting hair when swimming; and a routine to follow for no breakage.
- "Your product choices and styling techniques will determine if you love or hate your hair."
- Looking at the first (top) five ingredients, which may be the most effective in the product.
- "You will find the best products for your hair by reading the labels. Not just the front of the bottle that uses hyped up words like "nourishing", "replenishing", and "restoring", but the back of the bottle where the ingredients are listed."
The catch phrase for the book is "helping the product junkies of the world buy SMARTER, sort through marketing HYPE and save MONEY!" Coincidentally, some of the products featured in the book, in my opinion, are full of hype and would cause you to [possibly] waste your money. (Sorry, that's the 'I prefer natural and worthwhile products' part of me coming out.)
Is it a quick, easy read? Yes. It's only a few pages long, I read it in about two hours (with distractions). Would I recommend it? I can't fully say that I would, at least not at the price listed on the site ($14.99, I'm not sure if this includes shipping and if taxes are added on). Would I use my copy again, as a reference? Definitely yes. Again, I did learn a few things and there were some helpful tips; however, I just wish that there was a well-rounded focus on other ingredients and products, those that don't contain sulfates, silicones, and other chemicals. If you're in to some of the big name, somewhat popular companies, where their products aren't 100% natural, then this may be a great book for you. Even if you're not, you may still get something out of the book, as I did.
If you do get a chance to read this book, come back and share your thoughts. I would love to hear your perspective!
