It's light in texture, like lightly whipped double cream, and not like those really thick and hefty masks that usually are all that's on offer for dry hair and can be too much for tresses that need a boost but not an all out oil bath! I can see this becoming a regular treatment for a...
Look there I am, the epitome of the elegance of travel last seen in a bygone era, soignee and sophisticated, my butler Carson is tarrying behind as usual, bowed under a ziggurat of scented monogrammed valises made from ostriches hand reared on a diet of Jersey double cream and rose petals.
