Excellent!!! Comments By: Destiny on 2007-09-11
This was a great source. I am a African-American female and my hair has become really brittle and I am having difficulty with breakage, so I decided to take matters into my own hands and use some natural products to heal my hair. So I decided to make my own. Thank you
