Hi, I'm: newseason
I love: Shea moisture curl enhancing smoothie
My Splurge is: Shea moisture products. I won't spend much more than that.
My Cheap Fix is: Tresemme naturals radiant volume conditioner. I love that stuff. Nourishing moisture is great too but radiant volume just agrees with my hair.

My Little Secret is: finger coils- my go to 'do. I love this style. It just works for me. My coils last a week and even after I can do a coil-out. Can't wash n go, can't do a a braid out. But finger coils? They just work.

I also really enjoyed Darcy's Botanicals Pumpkin Seed Conditioner. Again, it wasn't the same but it will tide me over nicely until I pick more up.
