My De Lorenzo Hair Routine

Price: From $17.95 AUD Where to Buy: www.delorenzo.com.au for stockists If there's one thing I usually get complimented on, it's my hair.

I love De Lorenzo products because they're 100% Australian made and owned, environmentally responsible and use plant-based vegan ingredients that aren't tested on animals, of course! Now that I work full time, I have even less time to devote to my hair routine so over the past few months I have got it down to a fine art. Step 1: Wash I only...
