Giovanni Direct Leave-In Weightless Moisture Conditioner

My Experience This creamy, slightly tacky leave-in spreads like a dream. It wraps around each strand, soaking in and getting right to work imparting plumping moisture, pretty sheen, and uber softness. I was highly impressed with how fleecy and cashmere soft my hair was after using this. (It did reduce frizz–albeit slightly.) With this, beloved …

Giovanni Smooth As Silk Conditioner

I’m quite pleased by the Giovanni line. The products do benefit my hair greatly. This silk conditioner is no exception.

Thankfully, it washes away …

In my (admittedly) short life, I’ve had the privilege of navigating a variety of tragic and glorious experiences. I endeavor to offer something of value in sharing what I’ve learned, …
