Surya Brasil Color Fixation Restorative Conditioner

Surya Brasil Color Fixation Restorative Hair Conditioner #review

I love experimenting with hair color, whether it be a one step color, Balayage or highlights, for me experimenting with my hair color is a lot less scary than trying a brand new haircut.  After all, if the color comes out terrible it can always be fixed without having to wait months or even a year for my hair to grow out.
