After 30 years of getting my hair relaxed I finally feel the joy of my hair. After 30 years of stinky chemicals and hours in the shop every other week … After 30 years of wasted time in the morning trying to recreate what was achieved in my stylist’s chair… I now have care free hair. Just run my fingers through it in the morning and I’m out the door. After 30 years of slavery to my stylist, I’m free!
