Hair removal experiences
Posted by mandyf on October 24, 2008
For many years hair has been my friend and my great enemy. I say this because I love the hair on my head, almost everyone does. I am blessed with a natural wavy curl that looks great but drives me nuts. If ever you want to see a pack of angry women just stop by the beauty parlor when I request a straightening after a cut.

After following the three month treatment course for five months just to be sure I gave up but stumbled in kalo. This was another bust but thankfully this time I realized it after only three months.
