Until recently. When my hair broke after minimal highlights, I knew I had a problem. My hair lacked moisture, so I went back to the line of products I trusted and looked for something specifically for dry, damaged hair. I found Cloud 9 Miracle Repair Treatment, and within a week, my hair felt completely different.
Not only did it feel moisturized, my curl gained new life. It had been flat and dull for a while, but this product changed that completely. I leave it on my hair for about 5 minutes before I rinse, and then comb it out in the shower. I highly recommend it.

I pray that call continues.
As encouragement, here's the video my church has been playing as a reminder regarding the importance of relationship:
"And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity" (Colossians 3:14).
