Special thanks to Walgreens and Resourceful Mommy Media for making this post on hair innovations possible. All thoughts and opinions are my own, as always.
My hair is STRUGGLING through this rough winter season. It is dry, frizzy, and a bit on the dull side. Anyone else out there having similar issues?
I’ve actually been trying a few different products that I had on hand under my bathroom sink (recovering beauty/style product junkie, right here). But I just wasn’t getting the results I wanted.
And then I got a little package in the mail from Walgreens. They sent me some things they thought might help my hair beat the winter blues, and I’m excited to tell you about them in case they might help you!
The first product wasn’t the right fit for me, personally (I have thick hair), but if your hair is on the thin side, you might really like Dove® Advanced Hair Series with Oxygen moisture. I’ve had great results with other Dove products, so I feel comfortable recommending it as something worth trying out.
I also tried the TRESemmé® Keratin Smooth 7 Day Smooth line. So this isn’t something I would want to use every single week because it takes a bit of time, but I would definitely use it again if I had a week with several meetings or outings scheduled, as it is designed to keep your hair looking nice and smooth for up to 3 washes. I wash my hair every other day, so it lasted a week, and while I found that I still needed to straighten my hair after each wash, my hair did seem to cooperate faster, which mean less time spent working with the flat iron. This is also a great way to get to try out the look of Keratin treated hair without going through all that time and expense at a salon.
But the product I totally fell head-over-heels in love with is the Suave Moroccan Oil. I only had a few samples to try, and I actually used up my last one today, which means that I’ll be headed to Walgreens in the next 48 hours to replenish my supply! It smoothed my hair out beautifully and gave it LOTS of shine (healthy, not greasy!). It only lasts until you shampoo your hair again, so that is one of the key differences in the end effect from the Tresemme product I tried.
Maybe you’d like to try some of these products to help lift the spirits of your hair this winter? Walgreens has a great pomotion going on right now, where you can earn 2,000 rewards points (that’s $2 worth) when you purchase 2 of these products. And they are also 25% off on top of that balance rewards offer. I’m all over this deal, friends!
And once you have tried them, be sure to share your opinions about them on Facebook and Twitter and tag it with #tryandtell so the brands can hear what you thought!
Have you tried any of these products yet? And is your hair begging for signs of spring like mine is???
