Beating Winter’s Dryness with Suave Professionals®

2072-669797-B_L_P_MoroccnInfusionLotion_300x300 Hey girls, How does your skin respond to winter? My skin is already dry naturally, but the cold weather and lack of humidity makes it even worse. I have to lotion multiple times a day or I’ll get itchy. (And I think Roey has inherited this trait too.) I already told you about my love affair with Suave products. They’re always the right price and work very well on my skin and hair. John even loves them too. (And by loves I mean he doesn’t grumble when I replace his empty bottles of products with the new full bottles of Suave.)

Suave Professionals® is my favorite part of the range because they work exactly the same as the premium brands without the premium price tag. You see Moroccan oil (Argan Oil) everywhere these days, and now Suave has two new Moroccan Infused products that I’m enjoying. The Body Lotion is already a fave. I love the smell, and it works well (up to 24 hours of radiant, non-greasy hydration).

I think I want to keep it in the bathroom to use after I wash my hands, instead of in the bedroom, because then I’ll use more of it and can get wafts of the light, luxurious smell more often. It absorbs really fast and is non-greasy, so I’m not greasing up the doorknob or have to open the door before I lotion my hands. (Yes…I’m very particular about some things… don’t get me started on the process of picking out a kettle…) Bonus. I think it may even taste good because I keep catching Roey trying to eat it. :)

Rohan Loves Suave

I have a love/hate relationship with dry body oil sprays but so far the Suave Professionals Moroccan Infusion Dry Body Oil Spray is on my love list so far. I haven’t used it alone on bare skin yet. I’ve only used it to “seal” in the moisture all over my body after using the body lotion. (The same way I do with using an oil after a moisturizer to seal in moisture on my hair.) It’s non-greasy formula works well for me. Since I’m SUPER dry, especially in the winter months, I don’t think I’ll try to use it alone until the summer.

Have you tried the Suave Professionals® Moroccan Infusion Body Care line yet?

Tendril Tuesday Linkup: Herbal Essences Naked Review + Giveaway

herbal-essences-2

OK Ladies, it’s time for an Herbal Essences Naked Review and Giveaway! In THIS POST I told you about the goodness that is the Naked line from Herbal Essences. I was so excited to try their dry shampoo out.

Well.. I tried it…and…let’s just say, it wasn’t for me. I think it would work a lot better for someone who’s hair is nowhere near as coarse or curly as mine. It didn’t leave my hair feeling any better or much cleaner.

The Naked Shampoo and Conditioner however, I loved. The Naked Souffle was great as well.

Volume Shampoo

So, my hair was super oily and greasy (loads of coconut oil was used the past week) and I did one shampoo with the Herbal Essences Naked shampoo and it was all clean. It is sulfate, paraben and dye free, and my hair was left feeling clean, just on the border of squeaky clean, but still soft and not that dried out feeling that some clarifying shampoos leave you with!

Volume Conditioner

The conditioner had some slip, but wasn’t the thickest/creamiest in the world. I finger detangled the top of my hair easily with the conditioner in. And it smelled divine! (Oh, and the scent lasted a while throughout the day too. I’d catch whiffs every now and then)

Volumizing Souffle

The mousse, called a Souffle was great. It had solid hold, but when I used my hands to adjust where my curls were laying after it was dry, the hair wasn’t stiff or crunchy at all. I didn’t wear a scarf that night and woke up with curls that were still in tact (tho smushed from sleeping) so I just used my fingers to readjust and it was perfect for day two.

I forgot to take pics on day one, but here is day two hair:

(First off, thanks to Walmart and Herbal Essences for providing the product, info, and giveaway prize.)

OK girls, have I got a goodie for you!

Have you ever tried Dry Shampoo? I haven’t.

Well, I just ordered this limited edition Herbal Essences Naked kit from Walmart:

herbal-essences-naked

You can order it HERE

And I’m excited to try all of the items, but I am most intrigued by the dry shampoo. I feel like it’s a lazy girl’s dream! Did I say lazy? I mean…busy. A busy girl’s dream. ::avoids eye contact::

OK, here’s what Herbal Essences says about it:

Naked Volume Dry Shampoo

- Great for days when you don’t have time to wash your hair.

- Refreshes your look for lightweight, clean hair — even on days when you don’t wash.

- The natural tapioca formula absorbs excess oil and transforms lifeless, oily hair into fresh hair.

- Delights senses with the crisp essence of citrus and mint.

- How to use: Gently spray on and work into roots, brush out as desired.

I hope it works well. I cannot wait to try it.

  • Naked Volume Shampoo, 10.2 fluid ounces;

Holiday Hair and Pantene Truly Natural Giveaway!

pantene-giveaway-prize-pack-okdani-blog

You already know I love Pantene and have spoken about their Truly Natural collection, among other products in their range. Well….our friends at Pantene are sponsoring a huge giveaway of 9 full-size items from their Truly Natural, Pro-V, and Expert Collections!

I’m thinking…it’s time to go straight! I haven’t straightened my hair since….well before the big cut… but I am ready to try it out and see how it looks. It’ll be perfect for the holidays, for a different look…and I’ll be able to wear a hat in this cold weather without jackin’ up my curls :)

Normally for the holidays or a dressy occasion I would do an updo like my beloved bow bun:

bow-bun-okdani-natural-hair-blog

But now I have no hair for that! Thank you for inspiring a new look for me, Pantene. I’m sure it’ll come out OK. I’ll be sure to use their deep conditioner to start off with super moisturized hair. (This is KEY for getting natural hair super straight) I’ll post next week to show you the results…

So back to the giveaway…..Check out the video below to see all the goodies you’ll get if you win!  

 

Are you excited? I am. I love giving away products I just know you’re going to love!
