So ULTA plays these mind tricks on you to get you to spend more money. First they send me an email saying that the new Urban Decay Full Spectrum palette is on sale for 35$. Done. Then they say “you can either spend 7$ on shipping or spend 15$ more to get free shipping”. Done. Then they say “if you buy one more ULTA brand product, you’ll get a free gift bag”. Done. So basically, I got all of this goodness for just 65$ and I’m pretty excited about it. Here’s what I think about some of the key products from my March 2017 ULTA haul….
Juice Organics Repairing Shampoo / Conditioner
The first thing I tried was the Juice Organics repairing shampoo and conditioner. I only received a small sample of this for free with my purchase, but I wanted to review this too. I have mixed feelings on this product but my experience might have been slightly skewed. Let me explain…
I used it like you regularly use shampoo and conditioner in the shower and really enjoyed it. It smelled heavenly, lathered up nice, and my hair felt really good after rinsing it out. The packaging says that it “repairs, strengthens, and nourishes with coconut & soy protein,” it is for “damaged or color-treated hair” and “formulated without: parabens, silicones, phthalates, sulfates, propylene glycol, artificial colors and synthetic fragrances”. So all of that sounds great right? What is my problem, you ask?
The only issue I had was that my hair did seem to be a little more frizzy than normal after using it. Here’s where I think my experience was skewed: so, I am 9 months pregnant, and the happiest part of my day is when I soak in the bathtub for an hour every night with epsom salt. What I sometimes do is take a shower first, wash my hair and do everything else I need to do, and then I soak. While I was soaking, I think it is possible that my hair fell into the bath water with the epsom salt. Also, my hair was air drying, while smashed against the wall of my bathtub, creating unfavorable drying conditions. This all could have added to the frizz. I would be interested in trying this product again and I plan on purchasing some in the near future.
