    Constantly blow drying and straightening takes a toll on my hair in the form of AWFUL split ends. I’ve been looking for a good serum that does more than just moisturize, and from this description, this one seems like it might be a winner. I love that it is made to actually strengthen the hair, and gives you more bang for your buck. I am also partial to products that are made with natural ingredients. Great post!
