Stay Away From Chemicals
Using Heat to style your hair is like getting shot in the head, INSTANT, But! Chemicals that you don’t know about are like “cigarettes”, it’s a slow killer. Using chemicals to Straighten, Lighten, Bleach, Dye or do anything regarding your hair, is being like Hitler to your hair. Use the natural remedies.

You Are What You EAT
