African-Caribbean Hairdressing (Hairdressing and Beauty Industry Authority) (Paperback)
by Sandra Gitten (Author)

Book Description
African-Caribbean Hairdressing, Second Edition is an updated essential guide covering all aspects of African-Caribbean hairdressing techniques in this area. It and is the only book written in the UK for students and professionals studying and working with this client group. African-Caribbean hair is more delicate than other types of hair and the techniques and procedures require a specialist knowledge and expertise. This book takes the reader step-by-step through each skill area with the aid of illustrations and photographs.
The bad news?  When bought new, this book costs $42.95 plus shipping.  it is a paperback book.   It's from Thomson Learning which is based in England.   
The good news?  When purchased through there are used books available ranging from Used - Very Good to brand new for less than the $42.
This 300+ page book has lots of step by step instructions, good drawing and photos.  I actually purchased my book at a half price store and it was in good condition.  It has basic instructions for all sorts of hair styles and includes how to color, relax and related tips.
I am always cautious to rave about a book because I know everyone has different interests and requirements.  However, I do like this book even though I have do not have relaxed hair like the majority in this book.  It also includes weaves.
You may be able to find it in a library.  I did notice that some cosmetology schools with libraries have this book in their listings.
I would love to hear your feedback about this book.
Did you love it/hate it/or had mixed feelings?
Please share your thoughts.  Also, do you have this type of hair and would you classify it 3 or 4 or in some other way?
