Selling Out in Style

It's an LD blogging first!!! I have both a product review AND a giveaway (comment below to win).

Suave Keratin Infusion dry shampoo

Amazon and Suave sent me two bottles of Suave's new Keratin Infusion dry shampoo. I haven't yet jumped onto the dry shampoo boat, but I've certainly been toying with the idea of becoming a dry shampoo supporter. Typically I wash my hair two or three times a week, but always have those in between days where my hair looks sloppy and gross. My solution has always been a peppy ponytail and a quick bang washing in the sink. Dry shampoo has been getting rave reviews as the cure for bad hair days and I have a handful of lady friends who swear by it.

Suave's Keratin Infusion dry shampoo is the 2nd brand of dry shampoo I've tried and I'm SOLD! My first experience was with Bumble and Bumble's Hair Powder in brown, and while I really liked it, there was NO WAY in hell I would pay $35 for 4 ounces of the stuff. Suave's Keratin Infusion dry shampoo even references the Bumble and Bumble product on their container as their main competitor and after using this product I understand why. It's the same quality for a 10th of the price tag!

I screwed up by not taking a "before" photo, but this is how my hair looks when it's in desperate need of washing:

The product is simple to use. Just hold the nozzle about 8 inches away from your head, spray your greasy roots in the same fashion you would spray hairspray, and gently brush through your hair with your fingers to blend. Whenever I used the Bumble and Bumble product, it left a large brown spray paint area in my bangs and my fingers were stained after blending it through my hair; not a sexy look. Suave's Keratin Infusion left no white powder and blending wasn't even necessary.  The result:

Happy hair

I was hoping to have a "pros and cons" section of my review, but honestly I can't think of a single negative thing about this product. It's easy to use, made my hair look and feel as if it had just been shampooed and blown dry, smelled as pleasant as a dryer sheet, didn't leave any powdery residue, and only costs $3.49 for 5 ounces. The days of drippy wet bangs being washed in the sink while I'm running late for work are over. I'm a Suave Keratin Infusion dry shampoo girl from now on.

Honestly ladies, this is a completely unbiased review of my new favorite beauty product and I couldn't be more excited to give one of you a free bottle. So, please leave a comment below and tomorrow at noon I will randomly select the winner.  In the meantime, you can buy the product directly from Amazon here and I'll see what I can do to get a free case for a lazy ladies beauty night.

I use a dry shampoo made in France from French goat milk, but I'd be willing to experiment.

Nevermind Jessica. It would be nice to use a dry shampoo doesnt cause a powdery mess! Im excited, I love dry shampoo.

I'd try it but I'll try anything.

I LOVE dry shampoos! I've tried a lot of bad ones, and a couple of good ones. The one I like best is Rene Furterer, but it's like a thousand dollars (gross exaggeration) and I just can't afford to spend that. I'm excited that Suave has entered the picture.
