Oh Ontario, will summer ever get here? After shoveling the front and back of the house this morning, I was happy to speak on the new swatch ‘Swatch The Eyes’ collection-I’m California Dreamin’ right now.
*This is a #beautyunited post*
I’ve put my hair through a lot of processes for the past 30 years-it’s time to give back. Several days ago, on my quest to achieve THE perfect blonde, I went to the salon and had several hi-lift blonde shades put into my hair. So right now, my hair is quite fragile and needs a lot of TLC. I’ve been using Pantene Age Defy Shampoo & Conditioner for almost 2 weeks (prior to the hi-lift application) and I’d like to share my ‘findings’ with you.
Bought and paid for with my own $$$
My hair is fine in texture. I have a lot of hair-but it’s flat. I can get it big and voluminous with a lot of different products and some styling tools. I added this shampoo to my repetoire as one more step towards ‘going BIG’
From the website:
Body-building shampoo for BIG hair and loads of shine
Over half the base of Big shampoo is made with sea salt, giving massive volume to hair in need of a boost. Sea salt is also full of minerals and de-greases hair, removing dead skin cells and dirt without stripping natural oils for a fresh, squeaky clean feeling. We balance the sea salt with seaweed infusion and extra virgin coconut oil for soft, nourished locks. Finally, fresh citrus juices are squeezed in for incredible shine.
This is a shampoo you have to get used to. It is granular and that can feel a bit ummmm ‘different’ than a standard shampoo. I scoop it out with my hands and massage it into my scalp. Once you get it into your hair, it will lather (not a ton but it will). I usually work it in from root to about halfway down my head, and then let the shampoo trickle down to the ends. I follow that up with veganese conditioner (another post coming on that eventually) which is light but provides enough moisture that my hair isn’t static. Then it’s off to the races with a volumizing mousse or a texture spray (let me know if you are interested in seeing/reading about what hair products I use!).
I like this shampoo-it’s different and leaves my hair feeling clean and refreshed. It’s more than I would like to pay for it, but the results are good so I’ll pay it once in awhile. If you’re craving volume, it’s best to start with a clean scalp and hair-try this one out!

*I was sent 3 of these products for review!*
I received one of these products for review and purchased the other one with my very own money!!!
Asian skin care-it’s not a new trend.
Honestly? My significant other and I don’t really exchange gifts on V-day. There are several reasons for it, mainly that, we have Christmas, then his birthday, then mine, then our anniversary (don’t give gifts there either) 2 days prior to the 14th. That’s a lot of gifting.
