In The Curl Revolution: Inspiring Stories and Practical Advice from the NaturallyCurly Community, Michelle Breyer has curated some of the best information that NaturallyCurly’s experts and community members have collected over the past two decades. Rather than focusing on one method, product, or ethnicity, The Curl Revolution tells story of the entire curly hair industry and features many of the leading curl innovators. It also functions as a how-to guide and Breyer takes readers through every step of the curl experience. They will learn to:
• Identify their hair’s texture type
• Build an ideal hair-care regimen that suits their unique waves, curls, and coils
• Learn aboutthe important role of ingredients
• Find the right haircuts and styles
• Be inspired by the voices from the curl community
The Curl Revolution includes everything that a curlie needs to unlock the potential of their gorgeous natural hair and face the world frizz-free.
“Growing up, this book would have empowered me to appreciate my curls at an earlier age. There are so many voices that tell us who to be and what to love and this book will stand out among them. What a beautiful illustration of embracing and loving who you are! It makes my heart happy to be a part of something that will uplift and celebrate all who have curly crowns! CURL POWER!"
—Jordin Sparks, singer
“With NaturallyCurly, Michelle Breyer created the first online resource that addressed curly hair textures. Michelle did an excellent job of creating a community for people who have been largely ignored.”
—John Paul DeJoria, cofounder, Paul Mitchell hair products and Patrón Spirits Company, philanthropist, entrepreneur
“Naturally curly is my FIRST source for all things curly, wavy, kinky, coiled and textured. When I started think about building HAIRiette—my own hair care line—it was, far an away, the most comprehensive source online, hands down. What I love most about NaturallyCurly is their ability to embrace everyone with texture—black, white, or Latin. They've got a great team and Michelle has become a dear friend in my curly world. I am grateful for their steadfast commitment to women (and, ahem, men!) with curls!”
—Tanya Wright, actress Orange is the New Black and True Blood
“NaturallyCurly has been an incredible advocate of the natural hair movement. It has given curly-haired women a platform.”
—Richelieu Dennis, cofounder, Sundial Brands (makers of SheaMoisture)
“The texture revolution happened because of the world wide web and NaturallyCurly.”
—Anthony Dickey, curl expert and author of Hair Rules
“Those of us with curly, kinky, and coily hair have often been rendered invisible, easily divisible, or marginal by the mainstream beauty industry. The Curl Revolution disrupts the notion of a straight rigid standard and centers the lens on a mighty and diverse dynamic community made of individuals where no two curls are the same. It expands images and the collective imagination.”
—Michaela Angela Davis, image activist
