Before ever using anything, whether the newest hair trend, product or style, please do your research, see the reviews about it, that way we can try to avoid hair dilemmas.

Took 1 full year to figure out what my hair required, it’s likes and dislikes, so listen to your hair ๐Ÿ™‚ no really, it will let you know when it adores a product or when it hates it, you will know by how your hair reacts, so treat her well and she will do the same.

Thank you for reading Beautiful Lilies & Happy Healthy Hair Days.
