Head and Shoulders Review and Giveaway

I tend to be a little flaky. And Iím not talking about my timeliness or lack of responsibility. It seems that during the winter, itís not only my skin that gets dry. My scalp gets all kinds of flakes, which is totally awesome since my hair is almost black. Those white flakes donít show at all! (yeah right.)

Despite these issues, I never try dandruff shampoos because I am afraid they will smell like zinc and will strip my beautifully applied hair color (H would not be a happy camper).

When I got the chance to check out new Head & Shoulderís Apple Hair Care I was excited to try something new. Especially when I found out it was safe for color treated hair!! Holla for my pre-conceived notions being wrong!

Does anybody else ever pretend they are in a shampoo commercial when they wash their hair? This is how I felt when using this shampoo. After using it, I was amazed by how flake-free and salon-beautified (looking) my hair was!

I swear I was like the girl on the hair commercial with bouncy hair and (bonus) no embarrassing flakes on my shoulders!

The next thing I noticed was the fresh green apple scent of the products. I basically smelled like fresh apple crisp all day. Every time I would move my hair or adjust my bangs, I caught a whiff of the delicious fragrance. It was really exciting to find a shampoo and conditioner that delivered so muchóat such a great price point!

How easy is it to run to the local grocery store and have confidence in the shampoo you buy there?

PS As usual, my husband just had to try this product. He was totally won over by the fresh apple scent and the moisturizing nature of the shampoo! Looks like we will both be using this to get ready for date night this weekend.

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.

It's kind of funny, but I keep an extra "Secret Clinical Strength" deocorant (preferably kiddie-size) in my purse in case the need arises. For instance, I get really nervous, anxious, hot, etc & begin to over-sweat. It comes in handy for those bathroom breaks!

I guess you could say my "secret" to getting ready for date night is to go easy on the makeup. I choose what I plan to wear earlier in the day, and that saves time.
