Wow, I haven’t done a conditioner review so long (seriously, my last one was in June). Today I will be reviewing one of two Suave conditioners I recently purchased: the Aloe and Waterlily Conditioner. The review for the other conditioner will be up in the next few weeks. (more…)

My Transition to Natural Hair
