Pamper Your Hair ~ Salon Naturals Review & Giveaway

natural hair care, eco friendly beauty products

hair, hair care products, premium hair products,

With all this pampering going on, it's absolutely essential to not forget about your tresses!
My daughter and I both have fairly long hair and lots of it - but it's fine in texture.  Finding the right products has always been a challenge.  

Thanks to Lorrie of Salon Naturals, we were given the chance to try a fabulous assortment of products made especially for our hair type, from the Salon Naturals organic line!

Before trying the products, I did a bit of research on the Salon Naturals line and I was quite pleased with what I discovered, especially availing myself to the plethora of information found on the Salon Naturals website,  on facebook and on the Salon Natural's blog. 

Salon Naturals, natural hair products

Put to the test:

Salon Naturals, eco firendly hair products
At Lorrie's recommendation, my daughter and I tried the Sleek and Shiny shampoo and conditioner formula.  This formula is appropriate for a variety of hair types and is designed to "nourish, strengthen, add shine and lock in moisture".  

Whatever you need for your locks, Salon Naturals has a special formula for you!
You can learn about the full line and find your perfect match via the product descriptions on the Salon Natural site.

I tested the Sleek & Shiny formula for a full month and it exceeded my expectations!  I found the texture of the product to be just right and easy to work into my hair.  The after wash result was as promised: sleek, shiny and healthy looking hair with a light fresh, clean scent.

I did encounter two unexpected results.  

The lather, oh, the luxurious lather.
Often, even with top of line products, with my longer hair, I often need to use a significant amount of product to achieve a lather that I can work through the length of my hair.  With Salon Naturals, I needed to only use a modest amount.  Just after working into my hair, as soon as the water hit my head, I experienced an incredible, blossoming lather.  I can only compare it as a spa for my head!

The second unexpected result was fabulous "day after" hair. I almost always wash my hair daily.  Truly, the only time I tend to skip a wash is on a rare, lazy weekend when I can get away without leaving the house!  After starting my test of Salon Naturals, I found that my "day after" hair was fantastic!  Although I couldn't call my hair sleek, it was still clean and fresh, but with a lively lift and body!

I've tried a number of top end hair products and Salon Naturals is by far my pick for quality ingredients, responsible production and phenomenal results.

My teenage daughter took the lead on testing the Salon Naturals Ultra Hold Styling Gel.  Again, we both have long, fine hair, but lots of it.  We are able to curl, scrunch and style our hair so it looks fabulous for the, say, first 15 - 30 minutes, but gravity conspires against us and not long after styling, we end up with dull, coated, limp hair.

Both my daughter and I were astounded with the results from the Salon Naturals Styling Gel.  Granted, gravity was not to be put off forever, but upon returning from school, my daughter's hair still looked shiny, healthy and styled!  Kudos, Salon Naturals!  Thank you on behalf of fine-haired gals who crave some variety in their look!

Homecoming ~ Pampering All Around

Prom, High School Formals, Teen Celebrations, Teens, Dances 

This photo by Sean McGrath illustrates exactly how I feel about fall, football games and ...


This is my daughter's sophomore year, so our second go around for formal and semi-formal dances.  LOVE IT!

Admittedly, we could shave an hour or twelve off the "perfect dress" hunt without hurting my feelings, but I relish the opportunity to pamper my daughter and don't mind the built in excuse to pamper myself while we're at it!  Not to mention the chance to admire (well...okay...maybe a little purchasing, too)
some gorgeous shoes!

With our busy schedules, it seems increasingly difficult to find quality time together.  So I enjoy the excuse for a pampering day together ~ nails, hair, facials ~ to recuperate from the shopping!
Not to mention, plenty of "girl talk".

Homecoming Game, Football, high school sports, teen celebrations

So, hooray for Homecoming!
And, Go Warriors!
