The hardest part of the job was trying to figure out which brand I was using. I can honestly say that the first time I used the Mystery Brand shampoo, I thought it smelled just like the shampoo my hair stylist uses. I mean, that's not saying much since I go to the department store of hair stylists where I get a fairly decent cut from a lady who can remember my name even though I only see her about twice a year. Yes, I am a hair neglecter. I even cut my own bangs - but that's a whole other blog post!
I just can't rationale spending $50+ on my hair at a stuffy, uncomfortable salon where they try to up-sell you on coconut water butt infusions or something. I mean, I'm sure a coconut water butt infusion is lovely, but I'll stick with my simple cut and blow dry. I'm easy to please.
I thought the shampoo and conditioner samples I was sent were lovely (especially since I usually get mis-matched hair products - whatever I can find on clearance). They complemented each other well and I felt like I got a pretty decent hair cleaning out of them.
My favourite product out of the samples had to be the split end serum. My hair has taken a lot of abuse lately with my Psoriasis treatments. Having the extra protection when I blow dried my hair was very much needed. I even wore my hair down for the first time in months after using this product. It gave me some much needed split end confidence.
After the trial, I was convinced I was using some salon brand that I would never be able to afford again.
Imagine my surprise when this box came in the mail a week later containing a brand that I am in fact familiar with, but that I had actually just purchased a product from the week before the trial began! I was so relieved to know that should I continue to use this product, I can purchase it from any regular old store and not some over-priced salon!
I am really enjoying this product. Like I said before, I usually go for on sale items so having a whole set of one product made me feel pretty spoiled! My favourite thing about the product would have to be the smell. I am pretty big on scents and the smell of this product just smells clean and natural. I was a little worried because I do have a very sensitive scalp (especially in the winter) but I had no problems using these products!
My least favourite product would have to be (sadly) the reconstructing butter. Mostly because I am usually in a hurry in the shower. Usually when I have to leave products on my hair for 3-5 minutes it's because it is a medicated product for my scalp psoriasis. I am a little too impatient to leave a product on that long unless it is medically necessary. I wish they could build it in to the shampoo/conditioner or have it as a separate leave-in. Although the split end serum does pretty well on its own.
I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes
