SPONSORED POST: HEAD AND SHOULDERS



I was given the opportunity to try Head & Shoulders Apple shampoo and conditioner recently and wanted to share my experience. You may remember I tried their Eucalyptus shampoo and conditioner a while back and loved it, so of course I was excited to try this product!



Because I am going natural (no more chemically processed hair), I don’t wash my hair with shampoo as much as I used to. Nowadays, I shampoo wash my hair maybe twice a month and the remaining washes consist of conditioner only.



It has been about a week and a half since the last time I washed my hair (at all), so it really needed to be washed. Plus, later tonight my husband and I will be heading out to go to his sister's surprise party!

(before washing)



Can I say how much I love the fresh green apple scent of this shampoo?!

I usually wash my hair in the shower, but because I wanted to give a detailed review of this product, I decided to start washing before I got into the shower!





After wetting my hair, I started using the shampoo



head and shoulders review 028



(You can see I already put a little in my hair!)



Then after a good rubbing, I worked up a lather.

Another thing I love about this Head & Shoulders shampoo is it doesn’t take a lot to get a good lather.

Now that I have “washed” my hair for you in the mirror, it’s time to hop in the shower and finishSmile I will also be using the conditioner.



While I’m washing my hair, let me point out a few pointers about Head & Shoulders shampoo and conditioner:



Their advanced formula relieves scalp itch, dryness, irritation, and helps prevent flakes while improving hair and scalp health. I can attest to that because with my short hair, I had some dryness and scalp itch. That’s no longer a problem of mine!




Their product cleanses your hair and scalp, leaving a fresh green apple scent. It absolutely does! The apple scent smells so good!




Its gentle and pH balanced for everyday use even on color treated or permed hair. I’m not so sure about the gentleness on permed and color treated hair because I don’t have either one.



I have noticed that the way my hair feels after using the shampoo (before the conditioner) is no different than other shampoos I’ve used before. I’m not a big fan of shampoo myself, but hey, this one took my itchy scalp away, so it's all right with me!



Alright, here is a shot of the conditioner in my hair.



head and shoulders review 040



The Head & Shoulders conditioner is very thick, and I love that! The conditioner does not fail when it comes to leaving your hair soft. Like I said earlier, shampoo in general is not my best friend, but as long as a conditioner can make up for the way shampoo leaves my hair feeling dry, it has done its job!

So there you have it, another great product from Head & Shoulders!

Sadly I haven't had a date night in about 9 years. We have dates at home. I get ready with some Victoria's Secret vanilla spray because it's my husband's favorite.

I get ready for date night by picking an outfit first, that way I know what color my makeup should be. Then i make sure to have the right fragrance to suit my mood and attire. Getting ready for a night out is always so much fun!

My routine for getting ready for a date night starts with a shower. I have very greasy hair and I need to wash it every day. Then, simple make up, hair-do and pick out the outfits….maybe my husband’s too.

I don't get to go out on too many date nights these days, so I make sure I put on my sexiest pair of skinny jeans, hair down and perhaps a bit of shimmer in the makeup.

Angel Jacklyn said...

After I take my 45 minute shower, I take another hour or so doing my hair, makeup & choosing what I'm going to wear. It's a tedious process & I'm often running late! Lol

Unfortunately I have forgotten what date is. But when the chance does arise, my routine is simple. Something simple to wear, take a quick shower, do the hair up, a little makeup and there you have it. Thanks for the review and giveaway!

We don't have very many date nights with 3 kids and no family/friends living near us to babysit for that. But every now and then when we do get out I wash my hair the day before because it's easier to style the day after.

Welcome to My World said...

My routine for date night is a long shower, my fav perfume, a manicure and straightening my hair.

I like to shower just a few hours before my date and I also like to curl my hair when it's barely damp. It last longer and curls better that way. ❥

abitnerdy said...

Tee-hee thank you for the pic by pic demo! love it :)

My date night routine is a shower, shave, lotion and spray my favorite fragrance all while listening to the good music to get good vibes going. Then I give my hair a bouncey blow out while listening to the latest news just so i'm caught up and not caught off guard if any current events come up. Last but not least I stare at my closet or am in and out of outfits for the minimum of 30 minutes trying to find something that makes me feel comfortable and look great. Lol* even if I try to plan an outfit a head I still spend forever on clothes T___T

Thank you for the opportunity!
