Sallys Hair Products

I don't like my hair because it's always dry, frizzy, and in need of taming, everyday!! Ugh. So to help out my fellow dry haired readers (if you're out there) I have posted a picture of some products to share. The hair products are lined up in order from most liked to least favorite. The first product has a little heart in front of it for winning my heart! I am not going to individually grade them but instead provide you with a little review on each.

Mane 'n Tail Herbal Spray Therapy- This product is my favorite hair product at the moment because it smooths out and vanishes fly aways. And I personally like the fragrance, it smell clean. Right out of the shower, I spray this on my hair and it makes styling faster because I have less trouble areas. I spray it on finished hair to smooth and prevent frizz. <3

Generic Paul Mitchell The Cream- Other people say this makes their hair stiff and it can but just use it sparingly if you are worried. On dry hair it instantly smooths out coarse ends.

Argan Oil- A thick oil helps my hair but it is not a cure all for bad hair days. I do enjoy it and I love the little bottle. I believe pure Moroccan oil may work better than this product at making your hair soft. The major ingredient in it is dimethicone there is less real product as advertised.

Miracle 7- It works but the amount of product you get doesn't last long. I like to drench my hair in this it makes your hair feel healthy and soft. It may be number four in my list but must try this because it is a highly rated product from sallys and one of their major sellers. It might work for you and I recommend testing it out for yourself!!

Beyond the Zone Protein Cocktail- It smells like sweet-tarts which I like but I didn't notice a change in my hair. This product seems to have more value for someone who has brittle hair.

ApHogee Keratin and Green Tea Restructurizer- I was drawn by the rave reviews, the ingredients, and the smell but again didn't do much for me. I think that my hair is just too dry to gain a benefit from this product.

For more reviews please visit Sallys Beauty site

Now its your turn to share, for the good of others (myself included), please comment and tell me which of these products you've used, how you use them, and your own rating. Maybe I am just not using them right!! Thank you all.

Sephora Haul

Out of the products I purchased one stands out as my favorite- Smashbox Heartbreaker Fushion Soft Lights in baked starlight. The blush is a beautiful shade of pink and it looks natural. The other products were mediocre especially the Korres cherry lip kisses set which was a huge disappointment since the colors in the set looked promising.
As for the Tarte kit I bought it for only $6 so I cant complain. I wouldn't pay full price for it because I prefer the elf studio line brow kit because I get better results. The Rare Minerals moisturizer by bareMinerals didn't meet my expectations as well. It didn't make me breakout but the product would not sink into my skin as predicted. It made me feel like there was a layer of dust or film once it dried and my makeup didn't go on as smoothly as it does with other products.

Smashbox HeartBreaker Fushion Soft Lights= A
Korres Cherry Lip Kisses Set= C+ (I can still wears these and like the colors despite texture)
RareMinerals by BareMinerals= C
Tarte the Toolbox= B (I like it just a little more than the urban decay version but not elf's kit)

Happy to be back everyone!!
