As someone who can only wash her hair once a week, I know all too well that sometimes I need a little more than shampoo to get rid of the grease and product buildup on my scalp. To add to that, my hair also has a bit of a dryness problem thanks to my highly porous strands that sometimes make it impossible for moisture to retain itself. Thankfully, I've spent the past few months listening to my hair needs and trying to figure out what kinds of products it benefits from the most, one of which is ...
