If you know the players in that sentence, please know that I still love those brands. However, they did your girl and her brows wrong this one Saturday. However, my brows and I were able to regrow and prosper again thanks to patience and one product. That product is Jamaican Black Castor oil.

Personally, I love dry shampoo, because it has helped me prolong hairstyles, tie me over until I can wash my hair, and added volume to dull hair. For those reason, dry shampoo is an ultimate lazy girl beauty product. However, it’s been hard finding a dry shampoo to use to refresh and revive my thick, naturally curly hair. Therefore, when stoked when I saw this Cantu Dry Co-Wash Shampoo.

Aside from needing extra time to warm my car up in the morning and having to up my moisturizer game, cold weather brings some other problematic things into my life. During the colder months I find myself fighting dry scalp. Yes, your girl’s scalp gets dry in the winter, too.
