*Happy New Year Peeps!!! Welcome to 2012! This will be my first post of the new year and I’m excited to say it is about my hair!!!* I have no clue how many hairs I have on my head but I know I have a lot!!! And boy!!! It can be tough to manage. (not including the face that my head is somewhat large, at least to me and my husband…) This time around, I wanted to share a little of my “Natural” History with you guys.
