Yes, I'm guilty. I was one of the many people that stayed up until midnight to purchase this glorious palette only to find out that it didn't launch till later to prevent the webpage from crashing.

First of all, there are tons of benefits of adding olive oil to your hair and scalp. Second, I found that the glitter was starting to slip away. 

After massaging it into your hair and scalp wash it out of your hair and boom, no more evidence of your glitter escapades.

Face

I would recommend using coconut oil. You can use it for just about anything; Cooking, your h...
