Product Review- Karen’s Body Beautiful Pomegranate Guava: Sweet Ambrosia Leave-in Conditioner™

Short Story This product does what it claims, but it has a runny consistency that does not suit this packaging and it has to be re-applied frequently to keep my hair moisturised if used alone.

AFRICAN THREADING

From my previous post about my washday which can be found here, I styled my hair using rubber thread as it is locally called.   I prefer to use this thread because it stretches and gives a shiny finish. . The thread was left in my hair for two days for my hair to completely dry underneath and I was careful not to make it tight.
