We love a good beauty hack here at #TeamCoco HQ, so we have put together a few simple haircare product hacks, for those of us who like to use our products for more than just what they were intended!
We have chosen 5 haircare products that can be used for a multitude of other beauty and haircare issues, all can be purchased online and some from the high street.
Hack 1 – Fudge Urban Matte Wax
