Happy Friday! This post was supposed to be up a while ago, but life got in the way so here it my first sponsored post!
I am always trying new products in my hair. I am constantly on the look-out for something to make my hair softer, less frizzy and just more manageable in general. So I was pretty excited when Influenster and TRESemme sent me samples of a new shampoo and conditioner system. I have a rotation of different shampoos and conditioners that I use and TRESemme is in the rotation.
I have to say I was pretty skeptical about using the Beauty-FULL Reverse Wash Shampoo & Conditioner at first. Using conditioner before shampoo seemed weird, but I am always open to trying something new in the hair department. I decided to use my samples on a day that I was blow drying and straightening my hair.
I have to say that using the conditioner first threw off my shower routine. I have a certain order to my shower and using conditioner first meant I had to really think about what I was doing. It’s not a huge deal since I’m sure I would just fall into a different routine the more I used it.
I have to say, my hair did not feel as soft right out of the shower. I realize that this softness may be contributed to the conditioner residue that this system is supposed to solve, but I like that softness.
My biggest issue didn’t come up until I started drying my hair. I went through my normal hair routine. I sprayed both Matrix Style Link Turbo Dryer Blow Dry Spray & Matrix Total Results Miracle Creator Multi-Tasking Treatment through out my hair and then brushed it out before starting to blow dry. As I was using my dryer, I noticed my hair was starting to tangle. I have never had an issue with my hair tangling, so that was a little disappointing.
Ten minutes later, my hair was dry so I put the finishing touches on with the straightener. Nothing really stood out as I finished up my look.
I really enjoyed this opportunity to reverse my routine and try a new product, but I don’t think it is something that I will be picking up off the shelf. There wasn’t anything about that stood out as just great and there were just a couple tiny things that bothered me. I will probably just stick to my regular hair and shampoo routine for now.
Have you ever tried something that you felt pretty neutral about? What type of new products are you open to trying?
