Happy Manic Monday Everyone!
I can remember the days when I had what felt like an eternity to get ready for work or a family outing, taking my time putting my makeup on and styling my hair. This eternity did not last long once I had kids, in fact, I don't think I've been alone in the bathroom since my first daughter was born. These days, I have mastered getting dressed and having my hair done in under ten minutes, meaning I throw my hair up and put on the first shirt and pair of pants I can find.
For the most of my life I have kept my hair about shoulder length for easy maintenance and once I had kids, I went even shorter, so I could just get up, brush it and go. It was simple and what I needed at the time but as times have changed, so have my tastes.
Having ridiculously thick hair, I have never had the urge to grow my hair out long, it would just mean more time in the bathroom. I decided to finally give it a try and today my hair is halfway down my back. There are days I don't mind it and love being able to try different styles and then there are those other days when I just want to chop it all off.
The problem that drives me crazy with long hair are split ends, forcing me to put my hair up every day until I have a chance to get it cut. With summer here now, I am usually wearing tank tops and with my hair being so long, the feeling of split ends is almost to much to handle.
I usually go to a salon a few times a year to get my hair colored, highlighted and cut, but there are times that it just doesn't work with my schedule, so I'm forced to deal with my split ends until I can schedule an appointment.
Recently I was shopping and was looking for any product that could help until I could make an appointment at a salon. I grabbed a bottle of conditioner that said helped with split ends and breakage, and hoped for the best.
I purchased TRESemme Anti-Breakage Conditioner with vitamin b12 and gelatin. I left it on for the 2-3 minutes that the bottle recommended and could feel the difference immediately. As soon as I washed the conditioner out, I could see the difference and my hair felt much better. I wanted to know if it would feel the same when I blow dried and styled it with a round brush. I was extremely impressed after styling my hair, it felt better and looked great.
Using this conditioner, I was able to hold off getting my hair cut for four weeks because I didn't notice my split ends anymore. I have been using it ever since I got my hair cut as well and still feel the difference every time. I am looking forward to going back to the store and purchasing the shampoo and styling products which are not ridiculously priced like others. You can find this conditioner at Walmart for $3.48.
I recommend this to anyone, especially moms who just don't have the time to make it to the salon. For more products visit TRESemme's website here. If you have any hair or beauty products you recommend, feel free to comment.
