Managing Your Natural Hair Type…

Personally, I believe that knowing what hair type you have, is a great starting point to managing your hair and keeping it healthy. This does not only apply to Natural girls but also to girls with relaxed, permed, or naturally straight hair. I’m sure many of you would have figured out by now, what your hair type is.
