My Thoughts

I have heard more than once that you really aren't supposed to wash your hair every day because it strips it of its essential oils. Well, that might be fine for some people, but I have extra oily hair. By the end of the day, it can look greasy and dirty. There is no way I could possibly go a day without washing it because I will look like a total dirt ball.  At least, that's how it used to be. Now, I've found a product that will eliminate the need for me to wash  my hair every single day and I will still have fresh, clean hair.  That product is Philip B Russian Amber Imperial Dry Shampoo. 

I know it sounds crazy. I really didn't think it would work. It actually took me a few days to work up the courage to skip the shampoo when I was in the shower. But finally I did it. I got dressed and was horrified and my stringly, greasy hair.  I sprayed in the Fresh! thinking it couldn't posssibly do anything and I would have to jump back in the shower. Well, I couldn't have been more wrong. After spraying the Fresh! on my roots and combing it through, my hair looked great. It was healthy and shiny and even had more volume than it normally does. Plus it saved me the time of having to shampoo and condition and rinse both out. In ten seconds I had perfect hair. I was amazed! I really can't recommend this product enough. Especially to busy moms with little babies who sometimes don't have the time for a shower.
