Your Guide To Making & Keeping A Realistic New Year Resolution

Firstly, Happy New Year #SlayFam. As I’m writing this, we turned 14K! YAYAYAY! Thank you for your immense support and love and for making our dream a reality.

So considering we just turned 1, we decided to retrospect the year gone by. Last year at about the same time, both of us made new year resolutions.

We know how upset someone gets when somebody feels its their job to tell how dull your hair looks, how thin it has become, why we decided to cut/colour our hair and that it was much better earlier or which shampoo to use. We also know how you feel when these things are actually true. But the one thing that we all have probably regretted the most is the amount of money we have spent on buying an expensive hair products without trying it first and have it not workout for us (goodbye savings!). What if we tell you there’s a better way out of this? Because there is. Continue reading
