What I'm wondering is if the prices are the same in the stores as on boots online and if the R.M Williams store is the best place to go in Brisbane or if there is another place that...

I guess my other question is what "tools" do I need, if any? apply the conditioner with a towel or with a brush? I don't have anything in 'roo.
