Anytime someone mentions a hair woe to me, I’m instantly transported back to my own days of hair hell.
There’s something truly magical about summer; maybe because the warmth takes me back to my homeland, maybe it’s the slimming effects of a healthy glow, the mood boosting properties of sunshine, or perhaps that all my best childhood memories include beach cricket, summer BBQ’s and afternoons in the pool with my sister.
