A while back, I wrote about how the hair care product I’ve been using for the last 30 years is being discontinued.
Since then, I’ve been doing some pretty extensive testing.
During this time, I went to BlissDom, a blogging conference in Grapevine, Texas where I kept getting sucked into one particular suite. Women were getting beauty makeovers and stylists were doing hair. I learned Alberto VO5® has a new Salon Series. Someone helped me figure out which shampoo and conditioner would be right for me, and I was given a deep conditioning hair mask and a styling cream to try when I got home.
I had low expectations.
You know, because I’ve tried all kinds of expensive hair treatments – mousses and gels and creams — and none of them has worked as well as my cheapie mousse.
Y’all, I’ve been using VO5’s Anti-Frizz & Shine Cream for three months now, and it works better than any other product I’ve tried.
After I shampoo and condition, I comb my wet hair and apply a quarter-sized amount to my fingertips and work it in.
Somehow, it tames my curls without making my hair crunchy or greasy.
The only bummer is that VO5’s Salon Series isn’t available in my area yet. (If you live near the stores listed here,
you know what to give me for my birthday, you’re lucky! And no, Wegmans doesn’t currently carry VO5’s Salon Series.)
For now, I have to order the Anti-Frizz & Shine Styling Cream from soap.com.
I was already ordering my old stuff online, and I like the results I’m getting from VO5® even better than my old product.
After 30 years of being completely brand loyal, I can hardly believe I typed those words.
But it’s true.
And guess what? VO5® has been kind enough to offer a little pack of goodies! One lucky winner will receive one free VO5® Salon Series™ Shampoo, Conditioner and Anti-Frizz & Shine Styling Cream.
