Optimum Amla Legend Blow Dry Mousse

I’m quick to admit that my hair can be challenging. So, when I try something new and it is a success, not once but twice, I want to shout from the mountain tops or at least blog about it…and share it on Instagram…and maybe Twitter…and maybe my Facebook page. [Social Media much?] Anyhow, one such recent success [...]
