BUT. Guess what ? Joluxe turned 1 year old today :o) I can't believe it !! I'm looking forward to the next year being much more productive.
Why haven't I blogged in 2 months ? My only (weak) excuse is that my two "real" jobs (the ones that pay me slightly more than nothing) have been pretty hectic. And also I was being very lazy. About writing. NOT about trying products. I'm just as obsessed with that as ever. So I've been saving up PLENTY of material.
Today I want to talk about some of L'Oréal's new haircare products. I was really excited when the Advanced Haircare line came out. I thought it was especially interesting because they seem to have loaded the formulas up with ingredients that you usually only see in skincare products (ceramides, sodium hyaluronate, antioxidants). First I tried the Total Repair 5 Damage Erasing Balm.
After the Damage-Erasing Balm debacle, I was hesitant to try anything else from the line. With hair products you almost ALWAYS get what you pay for. But I couldn't pass up trying out the products that are specifically for dryness. And I'm really glad I did, because I LOVE the Power Moisture Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner.
These are right on par with salon brands I've used. I have a sixth sense about hair products; I can tell if I'm going to like a shampoo or conditioner as soon as it touches my hair. Both of these are rich in texture and feel immediately hydrating. The morning after using them, my hair is hydrated and soft, but not at all weighed down. And they retail for about $4.99 each !!
So if you have normal to dry hair and are in the market for a good quality drugstore (or high street) shampoo and conditioner, you have to pick these up. I haven't tried the Power Moisture Rush Mask yet, but when I do, I'll post a review. I'd like to compare it to my holy grail hair mask, the Kérastase Masquintense for thick hair, although I'm skeptical that anything could come close to it.
That's all for now, folks. I'll be back before 2 months, I promise :o)
