Tash Runs: My First Half Marathon – I did it!

Before the gun triggered, we all sang to the National Anthem of South Africa. Here was an emotional point, I recalled making my resolution to run the OMTOM as my first half marathon, I flew to Cape Town and here I was at the start line.

Ola Ola Olaplex (not the ice-cream ;)) After much reading and fighting my inner and very argumentative thoughts, I tried out the Olaplex hair treatment. I initially assumed that this treatment is for coloured hair and that it is a treatment used to minimise the harsh effects of hair bleaching and colouring.
