My very thick, coarse, wavy hair (that tends to frizz) has been through the ringer these last 10 months. It all started when I decided that I wanted to dye my hair blond and lob it, but long story short my hair was dyed darker so it was all one color, and then ultimately highlighted blond. As you can imagine, my hair was absolutely fried and in very poor condition.
Due to the damage incurred I’ve cut my hair monthly since October, and thankfully nearly a year later the ends don’t look as awful as they once did. My hair has always tended to be on the dry side, but unfortunately this summer it got even worse. In May I tried just conditioning it because I heard that was better for my hair, but that didn’t work as well as I would have liked. I was left feeling desperate, embarrassed and wanting to wear a wig!
I’m an Aveeno Ambassador, and thankfully I get to try new products throughout the year. I tend to think of Aveeno as the skincare authority, and completely forgot that Aveeno makes shampoo and conditioner as well. I mentioned to Aveeno the hair struggle I’ve been dealing with and they suggested I try the Nourish + Shine Shampoo and Nourish + Shine Conditioner. I looked up various reviews on the web and I was excited to see how much people love this shampoo and conditioner! As someone who has spent an arm and a leg on expensive shampoos and conditioners, it was amazing to see that the Aveeno Nourish + Shine Shampoo and Aveeno Nourish + Shine Conditioner are beloved by so many people and both have 4.8 out of 5 stars. I contacted them right away and told them I’d love to try both products, please! 🙂
I received the Aveeno Nourish + Shine Shampoo and Aveeno Nourish + Shine Conditioner, and washed my hair as soon as Fed Ex dropped off my package, I just couldn’t wait to try them. I immediately felt the difference after washing it. My hair felt smoother, and it was actually wavier! In fact some of the ringlet curls I had when I was a kid were back – I couldn’t believe it. My hair is really big and frizzy if I don’t heat style it, that’s never going to change, so I made sure and styled it a bit after letting it air dry. I then rubbed a small amount of coconut oil for added shine.
I couldn’t be happier with the Aveeno Nourish + Shine Shampoo and Aveeno Nourish + Shine Conditioner, I love both products. It’s great to feel confident about my hair and overall appearance again. I’ve recommended this fabulous shampoo and conditioner to friends and family who have commented on how good my hair looks and have asked what I’ve done differently, and I’m excited to share my review with my blog friends too. Aveeno has a wide variety of shampoos and conditioners that will fit your needs, please be sure to check them out, you’ll be thrilled that you did!!! Thank you to Aveeno for sending these amazing products! I’m one happy Aveeno Ambassador.
