Summer is not the best time for hair. It’s hot, humid, and for a fine-haired lady like me it’s almost impossible to have a good hair day! I spend an inordinate amount of time trying to do my hair, then I step outside and poof: it falls flat, frizzes, or curls up.

Suddenly, I was having breakouts and dryness at the same time. It used to be that any old product would work on my face, but seemingly overnight, my skin started to reject everything. So I took my friend’s advice and bought Ole’s Three Little Wonders.
