The simple secrets to growing your curls healthy and long.

Tightly curly hair isn't like any other type of hair, and it needs totally different care to make it happy.

Do you spend countless hours—and untold dollars—on weaves, perms, salon visits, and products that promise to change, heal, or make your hair more manageable, only to end up even more frustrated? Do you wrestle daily with hair you can't get a brush through? Do you struggle to keep from hurting your child when you comb through her tight curls? Would you like to grow your tightly curly hair long and healthy?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, this book was written for you. It gives you the information and techniques you need to celebrate—not fight against—your very curly hair. You will learn how not only to care for your curls, but to cherish them, all the while saving time, effort, and money.

Curly Like Me is the off-the-grid, do-it-yourself owner's manual for tightly curly hair:

  • Learn how to wear your own curls in their natural curl patterns
  • Over 250 photographs and illustrations
  • Includes the best products, tools, ingredients, curl-enhancing hairstyle ideas, tips for growing out your perm, and more
  • Shows you pain-free techniques on how to comb and style your curls or your child's curls
  • Over thirty easy, curl-enhancing hairstyle ideas, tips for growing out your perm, and more
  • Helps you save money by avoiding costly treatments, products, marketing misinformation, and frequent salon visits so you can enjoy your own curls without pain, chemicals, or the use of weaves or extensions
  • The story (with lots of photos) of Teri's journey from hair broken by relaxers, texturizers, improper care, trying to force it to conform, and fighting her weave addiction to finally understanding her own curls. Now her natural hair reaches to her hips.

End your struggles with misunderstood, damaged hair and begin your journey to thriving natural curls. Applying the ideas and information in this book will show you how to love your hair the way it really is. Curly Like Me empowers you to take back the care of your hair so you can let your own beautiful curls shine.

Teri LaFlesh spent nearly thirty years working to find a way to make her curls happy. Not wanting anyone else to go through with their hair what she did with hers inspired Teri to create the popular Web site TightlyCurly.com and to write Curly Like Me.

From the Back Cover:

"Curly Like Me made me laugh, with and at my hair. It allowed me to secretly cry over a childhood spent wondering, 'why won't my curls behave, or my hair wave in the wind.' Today I embrace my texture, the unique perk of being biracial, and live for 'natural is the only way to go.' Thank you, Teri, for your book, which every girl of color with curly hair who has spent years with hot combs, chemicals, and frizz, should read."
Rain Pryor, author of Jokes My Father Never Taught Me: Life, Love, and Loss with Richard Pryor and winner of the NAACP Theatre Award

"Curly Like Me is down-to-earth, fun to read, and chock-full of useful information for curly girls everywhere. Kudos to Teri LaFlesh for showing the world that curly hair can be a blessing, not a burden."
Lori Tharps, author of Kinky Gazpacho and coauthor of Hair Story

"A great hair guide for coily heads that is easy to read, fun, relatable, understandable, and full of tips and advice that will make living with humid-sensitive hair enjoyable."
Mireille Liong-A-Kong, founder of Going-Natural.com and author of Going Natural: How to Fall in Love with Nappy Hair

"You'll read this excellent how-to guide to get Teri's envious beautiful curls, but you'll love this book because you'll have Teri's gentle and endearing voice in your ear for a journey to acceptance of your curly-haired self!"
Heidi W. Durrow, author of The Girl Who Fell from the Sky and co-host of Mixed Chicks Chat

About the Author:

Teri LaFlesh spent much of her life fighting with her short, crunchy hair, once even accidentally dissolving it with a relaxer. Through nearly thirty years of trial, error, and research, she figured out what her hair needed all along. Finally understood, her natural curls now reach well past her waist. Not wanting anyone else to go through what she did with her hair, she created the popular Web site TightlyCurly.com.
