The Lipstick League – week of 2.20.17
Question of the Week: Quick! What were the last shampoo and conditioner purchases you made, and how are they working for you?
EauMG’s Answer: My last purchase was Matrix Oil Wonders Volume Rose Shampoo and Conditioner. It smells absolutely amazing and this is really the only reason I purchased it. It’s not really for my dry, course hair type but I can use it once a week as like a “clarifying” treatment. I
