Worth every penny!

I learned of this book while researching locs online. I started my braidlocks myself 9 months ago and needed a good reference for self maintenance. The price made me hesitate because I imagined the book to provide similar information as all the other hair books I had purchased for a fraction of the cost. I couldn't understand why it was priced so high and hadn't planned to spend so much. I contacted the author directly through a hair forum we both support. She explained that her book was informative enough to be used as a text for training professionals in loc installation and care. I decided to take a chance on purchasing the book because of the excellent input she consistently provides on the hair forum--I wanted to hear more of what she had to say. I wasn't disappointed. Her book includes a brief history of locs, societal perceptions, a scientific explanation of the process, product recommendations, recipes, tools for determining how to determine what kind of foundation will work well with a person's lifestyle and personality type, step by step maintenance techniques and options--all supported with pictures detailing the process. I loved the testimonies of different people with different forms of locs and the detailed explanation of their processes. I was inspired by all of the beautiful pictures. Had they been in color, it would have been difficult not to cut them out of the book for a display in my office. This book touched on everything I've ever wanted to know about the locking process and some things I hadn't considered. I highly recommend it.

This is all you ever wanted to know and more about creating beautiful healthy locks. This author has shared all
of her scientific research to encourage the natural hair locking process in a readable and very informative manner.
The photographs illustrating the process are excellent. This is a book/manual that would be a great tool for instructors in Cosmetology Schools, and for the average person who is serious about getting the healthiest head of locked hair. That you for filling the void in this field of natural hair care.

I bought this book 7 months ago after deciding to loc but before deciding on the method. I conducted what I thought was extensive research on line. Nothing compared to the knowledge I gained from this book. It is indeed worth every penny! I waited until now to post a review. I started the locking process 6 months ago using 2 strand twists and interlocking via a loctician. I found the timeline chart of the "locking" process to be invaluable and accurate. I wasn't aware of the extent of shrinkage and condensing possible. I also wasn't aware of the various stages. So after 7 months after reading the manual and going through the process, I can say it is right on target. My hair is not fully locked but it is well on its way.\

This book helped me to understand and care for my locks. I have shared it with 2 other family members. It's great!
