Curly Sue

The fantastic frock discovery that could abolish straighteners and irons.

18 January 2010

Enter the fantastic frock discovery that could abolish perma treatments and change the nature of your hair.

For beauty, the scientific discovery means that eventually we might be able develop mechanisms to make hair curlier to more straight. Bye bye Brazilian Keratin. Sayonara straighteners and serums. Soon it will be all pop a pill for curly, pop a pill for straight.
