Don't get me wrong, I don't hate my hair. I just hate to spend extra amounts of my precious time styling and blow-drying it. My hair takes forever to dry naturally and ends up looking like a shrub. In order to go out in public, hot styling tools are essential in my routine. Yes, I'm fully aware that I should cut down on this to stop damaging my hair, but I just can't bring myself to do it. Instead, I take extra care to prevent my hair from getting damaged in other ways. For example, I've started making my own conditioner! Here is my recipe. Try it out and tell me what you think!
