Curly Kids: The Handbook | By Lorraine Massey
How to Care for Your Child's Glorious Hair.
On its surface, Curly Kids is a creative, practical handbook about curly hair: how to care for it, how to style it, how to solve problems like frizz and knots. But it’s also a book about empowering your kids and helping their self-esteem, because how we feel about our hair is more than follicle-deep––and that’s especially true for curly kids who are known to go through bouts of self-consciousness and straight-hair envy.
So by helping you and your kids learn new techniques like the Curly Girl Method of “co-washing” (using conditioner to cleanse the hair) and following an easy set of curly dos and don’ts (never “blow-fry” curly hair), Curly Kids delivers a powerful promise: Teach your children how to love those fabulous curls––and with Massey’s help, those curls will be fabulous––and they’ll have the confidence to love all of themselves.

- Names for every curl shape

Here is a practical note from Lindsay, our founder:
"For those who wonder and wander: The Curly Girl Method for children continues here. This book is the primary starting point of reference for any parent wanting to teach their children how to love their curls.
It contains a wealth of practical knowledge in how to care for the curls of little children and teenagers, and it's written in a way that is simple to understand and follow. I highly recommend this book to any parent or child."
