You know that sinking feeling.
The one where you’ve arrived at your vacation destination, only to discover you’ve left your favorite beauty product at home.
Well, just buy another one, you say.
Hmmm… not so fast.
That might be feasible with a $7 Revlon lipgloss or even my $25 Olay night cream. However, the thought of kicking out $53 for a new tub of my forgotten Kerastase Nutritive Masquintense conditioner makes me a bit queasy.
Don’t get me wrong. Kerastase has infused for my relaxed, colored-treated, thinning hair with bouncy, swingy life. And I will re-purchase it – but only after I’ve scraped every precious, pricey drop from the bottom of the jar.
So I dropped by CVS to see if they could provide me with a temporary solution. After a half hour of sifting through various conditioners, I decided on Neutrogena’s Triple Moisture Deep Recovery Hair Mask.
Still, I have to tell you, I wasn’t expecting much for my $6.99. I certainly never thought I’d be blown away by this conditioning and moisturizing powerhouse.
After shampooing, I slathered on this thick, deliciously-scented mask and let it sit on my hair for 5 minutes (hey, I’m on vacation and don’t have all day!). I rinsed and went through my normal blow dry/flat iron routine.
This conditioner is pretty good substitute for my much loved regular conditioner, and it left my mane feeling and looking healthy.
I’ll keep a tub of it on hand for times when I have to cut into my hair product budget to buy shoes!
And a big THANK YOU to Chic & Sassy Designs for my new blog makeover!
