your hair. This ensures that you do not get a reaction to the chemicals
you would be using along with the dye.
"It is also essential to use conditioner on dry and curly hair in a
humid climate. Your hair is like a plant so it needs to be trimmed
regularly to ensure healthy growth as well as to get rid of split ends,"
"We roller set the hair instead of blow drying. Our setting lotion
was beer. I cut a few of my friends' hair," she said.
