At-Home Hair Oils

These are some very good hair oils.

the boottique blog

One of our favorite local bloggers, Tamara from Champagne and Macaroons, turned us on to at-home hair oils.  Tamara always is sporting soft, pretty locks – so naturally we were sold on giving it a go.   But which one to try?  It seemed risky to choose one at random without doing any research – after all, not all hair was created equal.

IT IS SO SHORT AND IT DOESN’T EVEN CURL UP! I HAVE MADE A HUGE MISTAKE” Rocky talk. When you use a lot of heat and don’t transition, most likely your hair doesn’t even…
