The Herbal Hair Conditioning powder is an elusive product but thanks to a lovely friend (Thanks Emma!) I was able to get my hands on it.  The package indicates the product is manufactured in northern India.

Roll Tuck And Pin #16

The onset of unforgiving winter compelled me to shelf the roll, tuck and pin hair styling challenge. For those who may not know – l am very challenged (but getting better) when it comes to styling my light density 4c hair.
