Rusk, you did it again

I know that I just gave Rusk some love, but they deserve some more. Not too long ago, one of my fave gal pals gave me one of my fave things – free samples!! I just tried the Rusk Deepshine Color Repair (that’s a mouthful, right?) and it was much more amazing that I expected. I used both the shampoo and conditioner. The shampoo gave a good clean, but light enough that my hair didn’t feel stripped. The conditioner made my hair feel awesome. Both smelled great, like walking through a flower garden almost – light and sweet, not overpowering. I have enjoyed most of the sulfate-free products I’ve tried, but these definitely rank among the best.

Another Great Giveaway

I just can’t help myself. Who doesn’t want the chance to win free stuff? This one is for Hair Flairs.A friend of mine recently told me about something similar – Color Bugs – but they are from Australia (Kevin Murphy) and only stylists can get them. These are basically a fun way to do temporary color, if you are not ready to fully commit to the dip dyed ends and color streak trends.

If I Raved about Every Product, My Opinion Would be Worth Very Little

I just wanted to reiterate my open honesty in this blog. I try my best to express the good and the bad and my explanations for why, to truly give you a useful and well rounded review. Not to be mean, but some people are impressed by everything, and it’s very difficult to see differentiation between awful and awesome. If took that approach, it would not help my readers at all. Sooooooo . . .in that light, I thought I’d let you know about a couple of products I was completely unimpressed with.

The first, Matrix Amplify Full Body Texturizing Spray, prompted me to write this post when I realized it had been taking up space in my medicine cabinet forever because I am too cheap not to use something for which I paid good money (is there bad money, really?) On that note, there will be an upcoming blog on uses for products you don’t like, have too much of, etc.

I just feel like this does little to nothing for me. It might be because I have so much hair. Someone with very fine hair could probably experience a different result. I bought this on a buy two, get one free Matrix deal at Ulta. I love their Sleek and color care lines, so I thought I’d give the amplify a shot – fail.

The second, Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray, I found to be a huge disappointment. I had read so many positive reviews about this being the perfect product for beachy waves and I found it to just add mediocre texture and not hold very long or well. Maybe my hair is not long enough to hold the wave with this type of product, but at $25, I felt like it was money poorly spent.
