Somehow I got on the Aveda gifting list. I don’t know how but I have been rejoicing for the past few months. Once a month, I get a box in the mail with a couple Aveda products and each time it arrives I squeal for joy. I’ve been an Aveda fan for decades. I used to hide my Aveda products back when I was a trainer for The Body Shop because I didn’t want my colleagues to know I was carousing with the competition (though Be Curly is worth being caught cheating).
I love my hair in the summer. It craves the humidity of DC and while others deal with frizz, I end up with high-volume ringlets. But as September ends, so do my good hair days. I hate to admit how much I’ve spent on random styling products I’ve seen promoted on blogs and in YouTube videos in an attempt to make my winter hair look healthy, shiny, and stylish.
When Pantene reached out asking if I’d like to try one of their product lines,
I’ve written about dry shampoos before. I’ve said I found my holy grail, but it was because I figured it was as good as it gets. But honestly, I hardly ever use it. I’ll use spray wax, I’ll shower, I’ll do anything to not deal with the weird sticky, tacky, dull, overly scented, ashy hair that comes from using dry shampoos.
