As a busy full-time work at home mother, one thing I refuse to give up is pampering myself. And now that my hair is shoulder-length and all but the ends are my natural hair color, I no longer have to worry about using super-expensive, sometimes-hard-to-find hair products. This is a definite relief for my wallet (pampering products without the typical pampering price tag!), not to mention my sanity (driving 12 miles each way just to buy overpriced shampoo and conditioner is not exactly my cup of tea!). Now that my options are wide open when it comes to shampoos and conditioner, I’m exploring the different options available. I recently had the opportunity to try out VO5 hair products, specifically a shampoo, conditioner, and hair cream from their Salon Series line. VO5′s Salon Series line of products all contain 11 revitalizing oils (quinoa, honey, red algae extract, papaya, broccoli seed extract, soy and wheat proteins, almonds, kiwi, marigold, and aloe vera juice), and are designed to gently care for your hair, while also nourishing and pampering it.
VO5 Salon Series Color Shield + Radiant Shampoo: a shampoo that includes a protective formula as well as a UV blocker, so while hair is cleansed its color is also protected and enhanced.
VO5 Salon Series Color Shield + Radiant Conditioner:the perfect follow-up conditioner that also helps to lock in color and enhance shine, while moisturizing and softening hair.
VO5 Salon Series Anti-Frizz & Shine Styling Cream:the perfect after-shower leave-in cream for hair. Lightweight and nourishing, this cream is designed to smooth hair and boost shine.
I have been using all three of these VO5 Salon Series products for about a week now, and my husband has been using the shampoo and conditioner, and we’re both pleased with how well the products work. The shampoo and conditioner do a great job of cleansing and leaving hair feeling and looking and feeling healthy, shiny, and smooth; and the Styling Cream is my must-have after I shower, and even in the morning if I’ve showered the night before. All three products smell great, and also leave our hair smelling great. One thing I will note is that while VO5 Salon Series Color Shield + Radiant Shampoo does help to promote health and shine for color-treated hair, it does contain sulfate, so if you color your hair with red or pink dyes (the ends of my hair are currently hot pink), you may want to use only a small amount, or try a different shampoo instead. But I can’t recommend the Anti Frizz & Shine Styling Cream enough for taming frizziness and flyaways (I get those around my hairline)!
