I am sick. Boo. Sore throat = no running because sore throat limits breathing. I think this is because of my wonderful run the other night, when I was so cold but felt so good. Yuck. I will be better soon though, especially for this weekend's 1/2! I will be hitting up the gym tonight and maybe coughing on everyone and getting them sick too. I kid. I kid. Onto my new obsession.
So I want shiny hair. I try to take crazy intense care of my hair. I get it trimmed every 7 weeks. I wash it twice and condition it once. I try not to "over wash it". I try not to straighten it too much, which is kind of hard because I do have naturally curly hair. And then there's working out. Working out which kills my hair because I run so much, and I sweat and my hair gets really dirty, gritty and gross. I also have a TON of hair and it grows like crazy, which I'm totally okay with. Washing my hair as much as I do because of working out though has begun to take it's toll on the shiny fluffy full factor that I used to have when I was a little bit rounder from not working out and eating Twinkies all day.
Hey my hair was looking pretty good even if my waist wasn't!
Anyways, I have been looking for something to replenish the shine. I have tried jojoba oil and it made my hair a greasy mess, since for some reason my hair likes to keep oil in it. I also tried some stuff from Herbal Essences and Treseme and both helped make my hair softer but nothing was replacing the shine that I was missing. I wish I could buy much more expensive products for my hair, but alas, spending over 10 dollars for hair products that will be washed out the next day is a little ridiculous to me. So then I read about the John Frieda Shine Collection.
I hoped this new find would be what finally would perk up my limp locks. I went and got it at Target where it was around 8 dollars. I read the directions and found out you are suppose to use it after a conditioner and leave it on while showering and then rinse it out. Once a week you can also use it for 20 minutes and get extreme shine. I used it once for three minutes while in the shower and let me tell you, my hair hasn't looked this good in a long time. It's soft, smooth and SUPER shiny. I couldn't believe the results myself.
Random but true. So shine on.
Tomorrow will be full of any deals I can find and maybe I will find some cool people at the gym to discuss. :)
