About the Author:
With clinics in London and New York and a client list that includes stars, celebrities, politicians and royalty, Philip Kingsley is widely recognised as a leading authority on his subject. Called “The Hair Doctor” by The Times and “The Hair Guru” by The New York Times, Philip Kingsley, born in London, has been a practising trichological consultant since 1957 and a Fellow and past Chairman of the Institute of Trichology. After being a consultant trichologist to a prestigious Mayfair hair salon, the first Philip Kingsley Trichological Clinic opened in London in 1960. In response to demand for the service in America he founded the Philip Kingsley Trichological Centre in New York, which opened in 1977. The list of Kingsley's clients reads like a world's Who's Who. He even created the product Elasticizer specifically for Audrey Hepburn, and has continued to develop a wide range of award-winning hair care products. Philip Kingsley regularly contributes expert advice to newspapers and magazines and has appeared on many television programmes, both in Britain and the United States. He is author of The Hair Bible, published by Aurum.
Philip Kingsley is to hair what Dr Spock is to child rearing - an authority on his subject. In this book he provides readers of all ages, both sexes and all races with a complete guide to preserving, caring for and enhancing one of their most vital personal assets. This handbook shows you how to identify your own hair type and choose shampoos and conditioners to match it. Philip Kingsley discusses the science of shampooing, together with hair drying and other procedures that he considers potentially perilous: curlers, rollers, pins, brushes and combs, permanent waves, colouring and bleaching. He deals with everyday hazards such as split ends and dandruff, as well as more serious problems caused by illness. There is also a full and frank discussion of hair loss/thinning, its treatment and mistreatment. Whether you consider your hair to be your crowning glory or a problem that won't go away (or is going away all too rapidly!), this book provides reassurance and practical advice that can be put into immediate, beneficial effect.
