Blonde Moment Purple Treatment Shampoo

I have bleach blonde hair whereas my natural color is the darkest brown. I have to have a purple shampoo on hand to use twice a week to keep my hair looking fresh and keep the brass out due to having well water. I have tried many purple shampoo brands: jhirmacks, shimmer lights. GVP purple shampoo by Sally’s brand, ect.. all of the latter made my hair very very DRY , and since my hair is long , when it gets that dried out in the shower it tends to tangle so I try to stay away from drying shampoos because of that, and because my hair is processed and need all the moisture it can get. I am in love with this *not your mothers* purple shampoo because not only does it work, but it also doesn’t make my hair dry and/or strip it when I rinse it out, it actually was moisturizing and i didn’t have to use as much conditioner nor did I have to use leave in conditioner to brush my hair out. So it works and it doesn’t dry my hair out to the point of a tangled rats nest like the other brands that I’ve regrettably used before. So glad I found this because purple shampoo is a MUST when my hair is blonde, and I’m Glad I picked this up on a whim at Walgreens for less than $10.

Beach Babe Texturizing Dry Shampoo

I decided to try the entire Beach Babe line and regret not doing my homework because the ingredients in this are exactly the same as the Clean Freak dry shampoo and it made no visible difference in my hair. Both make my scalp itch. I dunno, maybe because I kept on adding more and more out of frustration. I envy anyone who can use these because the price is super cheap.

All Eyes On Me 10-In-1 Hair Perfector

I wanted to add a little extra moisture and heat protection to my dry hair before using my curling wand, so I gave this a try. I already use (and love) the Redken blowout lotion on wet hair pre-blowdry. Although on the bottle of this spray it says it can also be used on dry hair, I would argue against it. It made my hair feel tangled, rough and almost greasy. It never really "dried" and also had a really strong product smell that gave me a minor headache. It is definitely not a lightweight styler and created more problems than benefits. It was almost more of a "beach texture" effect rather than smoothing or softening! I lost a ton of hairs brushing and styling with this in because it made my hair so rough and sticky. I ended up having to wash it out, the result was so unpleasant. Although I've liked some of the other NYM products in the past, this one was not a winner for me. Outcomes may vary on wet hair or other hair textures, obviously (I've got long, in between wavy-and-straight hair with some several months old growing out balayage dyed sections) but you may want to try to mini version and see if you like it before buying the full size. That's the one good thing going for it - at least NYM's products are always reasonably priced!
