    Dove Advanced Hair Series

    I guess I should start this post by apologising for disappearing without a formal notice, things have been quite hectic on my side, but that’s a story for another day. I’ve been trying to work out a schedule where I  can produce more content for you guys so let’s see how that goes (hides face). Anyway… I’ve teamed up with Beauty Bulletin to bring you this review so shall we? If you’ve been following my blog or IG, you’d know I decided to go all natural, meaning no bleaching etc. I’m not going to lie and say it was easy, I was so used to having a different color every…
