So you know how it’s usually supposed to be a compliment when people say “oh your hair grows so fast” probably because they’ve noticed that you gain 6″ of hair per year while they’re still struggling with 3″ and you’re supposed to smile and say thank you? lol. I mean its nice but what these people don’t know is that the rate at which your hair grows on your head, it grows 2 times faster in the armpits, legs and even down there. And as a decent human being, You can’t be walking around with hair in your armpit so that usually means you have to shave at least 2 times a week. Story of my life!

Hi guys. I’m back again with a product review and this time, it’s not the usual banter. It’s the real deal so please grab a popcorn.

Anti- frizz conditioning yoghurt.

As the title suggests, I’m going to share a few tips for us girls on a budget on how to minimize your hair products and make them last longer. I actually go months before I have to buy new hair products because I’m skilled with managing lol. So here goes:

You can decide to shampoo your hair 1 out of 4 times you wash.
