    Pro-Tip

    If there's one thing we've learnt during the 2020 pandemic, it's that we need to be self-sufficient. Frequent parlour visits may not be on the cards every month. So, what do we do then? We incorporate some healthy, organic products in our hair-care routine and we'll be good to go. Head over to our Shop On LBB section to shop for products for all kinds of hair - frizzy, dry, curly, straight.
