Head & Shoulders New Moisture Care Collection for Textured Hair

Head and Shoulders Moisture Care Collection Head & Shoulders New Moisture Care Collection for Textured HairI suffer from chronic dandruff and it’s a very embarrassing condition. So embarrassing that in the 7 years I’ve been blogging, I’ve never discussed it. But I recently tried a new line of hair care products that I’m so excited about that I just had to break my silence.

A few months ago, I was in CVS walking through the beauty section – and some cool new products from Head & Shoulders stopped me in my tracks. I was kind of in a rush and didn’t have time to read the backs of the bottles, so I took a photo with my iPhone so that I would remember to investigate later.

When I returned home that afternoon, there was a FedEx box on my front step. Inside was a bunch of beauty goodies for me to review…including two of the Head & Shoulders products I spied in the store.

Whish Shave Crave Shaving Cream Review

Daneen – I know that you like your razor*, but wow, this stuff is awesome!

Do you remember where you were when you learned how to shave? Believe it or not, I was in Tennessee! My Dad was driving our family to Orlando, from New Jersey, for a trip to Disney world. He had the tendency to take the long way to stop at obscure places for sight seeing. I was 10 or 12 years old, and I recall my mom saying that it was time to learn. She took a disposable razor and his Barbasol shave cream and showed me what to do.

Since then, I always got the $1.00 Barbasol shave cream to use. But since it always left me feeling dry (and smelling like a man, ha!), I decided to splurge and get Skintimate – which was definitely better. I never thought I would use anything more “luxurious” than that until Whish Shave Crave found its way to my shower.

Wash Your Hair Without Water: Klorane Dry Shampoo Review

klorane dry shampoo Wash Your Hair Without Water: Klorane Dry Shampoo ReviewFor years, I have read in magazines or heard my hair dressers talk about how it’s not necessary to shampoo your hair everyday. This concept was outrageous to me because mid-way through the day when I don’t wash my hair, it feels and looks oily.

Over the past year or so, my friends started to talk about ho

w dry shampoo has changed their lives. In particular, my friend Elise would bring up dry shampoo anytime we would get on the topic of beauty products. Her hair is similar to mine, so I decided to try the award-winning Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk. I selected the dry shampoo with oat milk with the aerosol spray.

Baby Your Baby With Noodle & Boo

noodle and boo baby products1 1024x616 Baby Your Baby With Noodle & BooWhen it comes to cosmetics and toiletries, I am difficult to please. I’m even more discriminating with products I use on my kids, 4-year-old Westley and 3-month-old Arwen. So when I rave about children’s products on this blog, there’s no doubt that they are the crème de la crème.

Last month, Noodle & Boo sent me their Newborn 2-in-1 Hair & Body Wash and Baby Balm to review.

From Arwen’s first bath with these products, I’ve been hooked. Addicted!  (more…)
