    Please enter me in the giveaway. My favorite was Simple & Fast Hairstyles. I’m always looking for something different to do with my hair. I also like to do things as the title suggests simple & fast. I’ve always loved Dove soap so I’m sure I’ll feel the same about these products. I’ve gotten best results from store brands so I’m anxious to try these. Thank you.

    Deep Conditioning, because it’s true, nobody wants to spend the time and money to get deep conditioning salon treatments. It seems weird to use the deep conditioning thing as an everyday conditioner though…
