With the holidays quickly approaching; like seriously, it’s right around the corner! I know a lot of you may be stressing at the idea of what to get the curly girl in your life; sometimes there can be way too many hair products to choose! And once you do decide, how do you know that you’re getting the right one for their specific hair type or texture? Well, I’m here to help! (more…)
