    ✔ Minecraft: How to make Giant Trees

    How to make Giant Trees Today I’ll show you how to make a GIANT* tree for your adventure map or fantasy world! Start by making the trunk of the GIANT Tree Make 5-10 blocks tall.

But once I was ready to make a color change, I decided to fade my hair as much as humanly possible. I used sulfate shampoos, vitamin c, washed my hair with hot water — all the the things you’re not supposed to do with color treated hair. Then, it was time to bleach my roots and start completely over. I recently posted that…
