Struggles Every Girl With Thick Hair Has Experienced Before

Nobody understands the beauty struggle better than a woman.

One main part of the beauty struggle is hair. Yes, that stuff on top your head. Most women spend ages in the salon just to get their hair to look amazing. The money women spend on weaves, hair extensions and salons yearly is enough to fund a small country.
