Besides the goodies I get spoiled with in my allure beauty box, I blame my roommate for exposing me to some of the finer things in life. “Try it! It really makes a difference!”. I know it will benefit my overall appearance but it will hurt my wallet!
She tried Olaplex shampoo and conditioner which supposedly works miracles on highlighted hair. It actually repairs broken hair bonds making it feel healthy and thicker. I managed to stay away from it because I am sure it will be love at first try….
Until I asked my hair dresser how she manages to get my dyed brown hair so soft and shiny. Well duh! The expensive salon stuff of course. I was having a bad night so I decided to go for it. Wouldn’t you know it; this stuff seriously works. Whelp.
It’s Cibu Repair shampoo and conditioner. As we age our hair needs a little repair. Plus we need the color friendly sulfate free stuff too since the majority of us dye their roots as well. It contains silk proteins and almond oil. The latter strengthens your roots, the silky stuff makes your hair shine. It also contains biotin. We all know that strengthens and adds bounce to your hair. Prior to this I night I had already purchased the CIBU Shine Squad Argan Oil. My hair doesn’t like oil but a tiny bit of this goes a long way. The only down side; the smell. It smells like Christmas in a department store!
Conclusion is that sometimes it is ok to spend a little more to pamper yourself. I can justify the purchase of the shampoo since I calculate that it will cost me an average of 75 cents a day if I use it every other day for 3 months! That’s a steal for bouncy shiny hair!
With that being said…yes, I will also vouch for the following; Perricone Tinted Moisturizer and the Strivectin neck potion. I still don’t buy these until they are on sale somewhere! It requires some time to stay on the up and up of the sales but it’s worth it in the long run. Justifiable “splurges”
