L'Oréal Professionnel Absolut Repair Lipidium Group Shot

L’Oréal Professionnel Absolut Repair Lipidium

The last time I used a L’Oreal hair product I felt like I was washing my hair with Tide. It was a soapy, overly-lathered, big mess…the products also kind of smelled like Tide. At about $3.99 for a shampoo and conditioner you can’t really complain, but needless to say it was not an experience I want to replicate.

I can’t live without dry shampoo. My hair is so thin that if I didn’t break out of my habit of washing it everyday I was going to go bald before the age of 40 (especially because more often than not I also have my hair up in a tight ponytail…bad, very bad…).

Living Proof No Frizz Nourishing Styling Cream: Beating the Heat
