Let me just be right up front about this. I have complete and total crap hair. I have approximately 13 hairs that I swirl and fluff in an effort to hide 3 vicious, award-winning cowlicks, (one is actually in the Cowlick Hall of Fame,) as well as a three inch scar where I dropped a couch on my head, (long story.) I state this upfront because if you happen to see me, don’t judge the following product based on how my hair looks. That just wouldn’t be fair. It’s doing the best it can.
Pureology Shampoo and Conditioner really do make a noticeable difference. I know this because I stopped using it for a while because the product is pricey (an 8.5oz bottle is $27.00 at Ulta) and I was trying to cut back where I could. As it turns out, as concerns my hair, there will be no future cost saving efforts. When I switched to a cheaper brand my hair felt waxy and looked flat. But with the Pureology brand it looks full, and feels soft and silky, as if angels were sleeping in my follicles. And experts agree! It was voted Best Splurge at the Allure Best of Beauty Editor’s Choice Awards.
I will be putting the brand to the test in two days when I’ve decided to go platinum, (barring my hairdresser telling me it is completely ill-advised and would threaten the survival of the 13 aforementioned hairs.) If future posts show a picture of me in a ball cap you will know things didn’t go quite as intended, and that there is only so much a product can do when a 50 year old woman with crap hair tries a little too hard to be cool.
*I was in no way compensated for this review, but if someone from Pureology sees this post and cares to send me a moving truck full of product, I’d be good with that.
