Aww that's awesome! My mom has been my biggest compliment-er lately!
I'm kind of a hair idiot, so I didn't realize that if I scrunched my conditioner in in the shower, my hair would absorb it more and become softer.
I started doing that like 2 weeks ago, and literally the first day i did it right when it dried, she asked me what I did to my hair to make it so shiny and bouncy!
