I got a Dominican rollerset and blowout the other day. Actually the stylist was Cape Verdean, but the technique was the same. She rolled my hair up with Mizani Heat Protector and Matrix Biolage Smoothing Shine Milk . Then she blew out my roots and wrapped my hair. I like how my hair came out. It's bouncy and looks healthy. It didn't come out as shiny as it usually is, but I went home and moisturized it, which created more shine. I really went because I have an event this weekend and I wanted to try the salon first. I know I shouldn't be getting a blow out 2 weekends in a row, but after that, I probably won't go again for a couple of months.

Product Review: Hair One Cleansing Conditioner

I've been wanting to try the Hair One Cleansing Conditioner for a while. I was in Sally's last week, so I bought the sample pack for $1.49. I bought the Olive Oil for Dry Hair.

My Experience
I followed the directions and used the product like a shampoo. With the packet, I was able to apply it twice. I liked how it made my scalp tingle, and my hair felt moisturized as I worked it through. I rinsed and deep conditioned as usual.

My hair felt clean, and overall pretty much the same as it usually does after it does when I use a moisturizing shampoo. I didn't feel much difference. My hair doesn't really care for olive oil, so maybe I should try one of the other formulas. I'm glad I only bought the small pack. When I run out of some other products, I'll try it again.
