I’ve always taken for granted the fact that I’ve never experienced an allergic reaction. I hear the horror stories of children being rushed to the E.R. for ingesting some type of nut or fruit and at times bee-stings are the culprit.

I stepped into my local beauty supply store and purchased the prettiest curly hair i could find at a reasonable price. I came home, did my best at cornrowing my hair and installed my crotchet style.

Today I will focus on the most feared natural hair killer – heat damage.
