4.0 étoiles sur 5 Disappointing 22 novembre 2002
Par Michelle - Publié sur

I wrote the original review for this book 10 years ago- wow! I've changed the rating from 2 to 4 stars, for a few reasons:

1. Not sure I conveyed this in the first review, but the 1st edition was a magical book. The idea of good care for black hair had never occurred to me, and it was an awakening. This was the first book of it's kind on the market, and started a revolution. I'm incredibly grateful to the author for that.

2. It's hard to rank this book. At the time the first edition came out, it was easily a 5. Didn't like the current edition as much (as stated below). The first just had this more fun vibe and I enjoyed reading it over and over again, and included a recipe for conditioner. Years later, there is a lot of amazing info out there - black hair care forums about growing long hair, youtube channels with black women with long hair sharing their tips, black long hair blogs, etc. I might put the 1st edition at a 3-4 today - a good read, worth a purchase, but not a complete resource (which is fine- you'll probably want to read/see lots of things to learn your own hair).

3. What is good about this book, and why you should consider purchasing it: it lays out some basic, simple rules for black hair growth. Growing long hair for black women is preventing damage, keeping the hair moisturized, and avoiding cutting too much.

With this book, I was able to grow my hair to past collarbone length (which was a big improvement). I'm happy to report that after I discovered black long hair care forums, my hair is now touching WAISTLENTH and still growing! My hair is the longest, healthiest, and thickest it has ever been! The keys for me were:

* stopping using relaxers (advocated in the book- it's very possible to grow long hair w/ relaxers, but they just damaged my hair and it looks so much better natural. Get lots of info online if you relax- there's much more not covered in the book.)
* stopping using heat (advocated in the book, although I've seen many w/ long hair use direct heat sparingly and then airdry, rollerset, or do any number of curly sets most of the time.
* Many, many other things I learned from online forums that's not covered - protective styling, different regimen (I don't use her conditioner recipe anymore!), gentle combing & detangling techniques, and much more.

Basically- this is a good book to incorporate as part of your learning about growing long, healthy, beautiful hair. No one book should be taken as the be-all and end-all, so make sure to do lots of research online.

Happy hair growing!

Here's the original review:
I read the first edition of Ms. Howse's book when I was a young teenager, probably about 10 years ago. This was the first book I had ever read about Black hair care, and the length and health of my hair improved when I followed her guidelines. There were not many books about caring for our hair on the market at that time, and as a hair care beginner, this book helped me tremendously. The book was riddled with spelling errors and editing problems, but this was not a big deal to me, as I was reading the book to gain information and not for entertainment.

I saw the newest edition of the book in a bookstore, and decided to reread it. The spelling and editing have been improved, yet are still far from perfect, as many other reviewers have noted. There are two major differences in the two books, both of which disappointed me tremendously:

1. Much of the second edition is dedicated to ranting about her personal disagreements with hair care professionals. This is irrelavant to the purpose of the book, which is to learn to care for and grow your hair.

2. Secondly, and most disturbingly, she now uses the book as a platform for selling her haircare products. Many reviewers have been bothered by this, and so was I. In the first edition, Ms. Howse tells you the formula for making conditioner. This was written before she went into the business of making hair care products. I cannot speak about her products that she sells, as I have never tried them. But, I will tell you that the recipe that she gives in the first edition is the best product I have ever used on my hair, and I have tried everything! So, here is the recipe for conditioner that she reccommends in her first book (please note that this is a variation, as I have long ago lost the book and have been making the recipe for years, so the amounts may not be the same as in the original book):

Mix these ingredients together:
1 32 oz. bottle of protein conditioner (I use Mane & Tail)
6 oz coconut oil (you must liquify this in the microwave)
3 oz olive oil
.5-1 oz (personal preference) peppermint oil (must be real essential oil)

In my opinion, this was the most valuable information in the book, and it wasn't even in this edition.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 MYTHS DISPELLED!! 27 décembre 2003
Par Celeste - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I have read the other reviews with great interest and I have come to the conclusion that you can't please everyone. However, I noticed that there were references to other books about black hair, specifically the Shamboosie book. I don't know Cathy Howse, but as a black scientist and a physician
I do know that there were NO SHAMBOOSIES or Bamboosies 15 years ago who were writing intelligent guidelines to care for the hair of black women.
CATHY HOWSE is the FIRST author to seriously address and dispel the myths and the subculture attitudes of black hair grooming and growing. The other epigones are too late as far as I am concerned.
I have had professional hairstylists and hairdressers "take care" of my hair all my adolescent and adult life. I was so afraid to wash it by myself. I just scurried off to the hairdresser once or twice a week; had relaxers placed according to THEIR schedules and followed their "advice" to the letter. After all, they were "professionals". Yet, my hair remained less than 3 inches in length. That is, until I happened to stumble on to Cathy's book on this past August. The book literally CHANGED MY LIFE!!! It has become my bible and my daily guide. Her website is also awesome. There are many questions that she answers on her website that do not appear in the book ([...] I have ordered her products and the products of others, including Dudley, Motions and Pantene. Believe me, her products are FAR SUPERIOR than those offered by the other hair companies. She really has done her homework!! Some may find them expensive, but, "you get what you pay for". The only question that should be asked is, "Does this product promote the healthy growth of my hair?" If the answer is yes, then buy it!
I have always been driven by "evidence-based" science, not by hearsay. That's why I always went to a professional stylist. Well, those days are over. Now, I am confident enought to take care of my own hair now and I dictate to the hairdresser what I want and what I don't want.
Cathy is a Godsend and all the naysayers should be aware of the fact that SHE was the first person who put her experiences in writing from which we black women can benefit. For that alone, she should be given a medal.
My "exp-hair-iment" is proceeding quite nicely and I owe it all to Cathy Howse.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 UBHGII has been a lifesaver! 4 août 2001
Par M Patterson - Publié sur
I first came across UBHGII while I was on the net trying to get as much information as I could on addressing the needs of my hair. I was having problems following the use of Rio products-yes, I made a grievous mistake, and believe me for the last seven years I have been paying for it-severe breakage, dryness, lack of texture-it didn't feel real; and no visible growth at all. And, yet it was not my hair I was concerned about. I have 4 little girls ages 12, 11 10, and 7-that means I have alot of hair to take care of. I relunctantly made the decision to put a perm in the 3 older children's hair, and shortly after that, breakage. I couldn't believe the amount of breakage we experiended. My girls went from having hair that hung just below their shoulders to hanging just at their ear lobes. My heart was broken. It's one thing for me to mess up my hair, but it's a far more serious situation for me when it comes to my children. With tears in my eyes, I promised them I would learn how to properly care for their hair, and I would do something to help facilitate growth. I frantically got out on the internet, and started reading all the information I could find. One day, I came across UBHGII. Immediately, I was impressed with the before and after pictures of Mrs. Howse. As I browsed her sight, reading all the information, I became increasingly more interested, so I ordered the book. As soon as I got the book in the mail, I practically inhaled it. I must say, I found it to be so refreshing. Many of the questions I had struggled with were answered in the pages of that book. I couldn't believe the wealth of information. Important things, like the need for protein to rebuild your hair following chemicals. I had always, always put conditioner in the girls hair. How was I to know it was just being rinsed down the drain. Everything I had learned, all the myths about our hair were suddenly gone, and I was left with-truth. I now had something I could work with.
Well, I have been using the products for six months. I have seen more growth, in the last six months than I have in the last seven years since RIO. My hair feels like hair, again. But, the most exciting thing has been the benefits to my children's hair. It has been in such good condition. And, we are beginning to really see the benefits of using the "Howse Method". I immediately went out and got a heatcap once UBHGII explained the importance of heat when conditioning. My girls now wash their hair and get under the heat cap every week. They are getting to the point where they enjoy, and look forward to washing, and conditioning their hair. It's not just something they have to do-it has become something they want to do. They moisturize everyday, and are really doing well.
I am so thankful they have the opportunity to learn how to care for their hair at an early age, and can avoid many of the mistakes I have made.
Thank you Mrs. Howse for taking the time to learn how to care for our hair, and then sharing your findings with others.
M Patterson

1.0 étoiles sur 5 DON'T BUY THIS BOOK 1 mai 2001
Par Un client - Publié sur
This book is ridiculous.
I read it in one sitting and only found out things that I already knew, like taking vitamins, having good nutrition, avoiding overprocessing, avoiding double-processing, avoiding repeated use of heated styling tools, and avoiding too much blow drying.
This book is only one woman's point of view, since she happens to have long hair. She grew it and she wrote this book. But she seems to have more fun dancing around the crucial information that you need to know in order to have healthy hair.
The most important thing that you should know is that this book does not give you pointed information on what to buy and how to apply it to your hair. For example, she says to buy a good shampoo, but she won't tell you which ones are "good". She says to get a "moisturizer", but she won't tell you how to know a moisturizer when you see it, how you should apply it, and how to style your hair after using it. She says not to use hairspray, but she doesn't say WHAT to use to keep your hair from blowing around in the wind when you step outside. Furthermore, she does not give ALTERNATIVES. She says, don't do this, don't do that. But then, she forgets to tell you what to DO with your hair after you've washed, conditioned, moisturized, and airdried your hair. Now what. Do you just walk outside as is?
There are just too many things missing from this book. Don't waste your money on it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Just in the nick of Time! 10 janvier 2001
Par Mycheal Smith - Publié sur
"Ultra Black Hair Growth 2000" is a book every woman, hairdresser/stylist should read. Ms. Howse's "common sense approach" to black hair growth will enlightened any one who reads her book. You will see results if you follow the program the book suggests. After I purchased and read the book and began to follow the steps as stated in the book, within a very short time I began to see and feel a difference in not only my hair but my daughter's hair as well. It was in the nick of time because I was about to have my hair cut very, very short and I did not want to do so.
I was searching for information to help me with the problems I was having with hair breakage, dry itchy scalp, and damaged hair. The "common sense approach" made sense to me. I have changed my overall hair care regimen, (caring for total me also). So I say to woman who likes to keep her "mane" together, looking its best, "Ultra Black Hair 2000" is a "must have."
The book is very easy to read and follow. Once you begin to read it, you won't stop until you have read the book cover-to-cover. This is not a book on hair styles, so don't even go there, but if you are looking for sound advice, go ahead and buy the one book that makes sense.
Thank you again, Ms. Howse for sharing your wealth of information on the subject of hair growth and hair care. May God continue to bless you.
