TRESemme Fresh Start Dry Shampoo-For All Hair Types!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of TRESemmé for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.


I have to admit that I have never used dry shampoo. I insist on showering every morning. Yes, I know it is recommended to wash your hair every other day if you can get away with it-I've never tried finding out, though! However, after learning about the TRESemm√© Fresh Start Dry Shampoo, if I do ever have a need for a dry shampoo, this is certainly the one I'd go for! I like that the line includes product for different hair types. Strengthening, volumizing, smoothing and even a moisturizing waterless foam shampoo that removes oil but still moisturizes! This complete line is sure to have a product to fit everyone's needs. This is the perfect way to revive your hair and keep a fresh, clean look on the days in between the days you wash your hair! (I also think the fresh citrus extract burst sounds absolutely fabulous! So your hair not only looks great, but smells great too). If you have kids that are in school or college, you should check this out. Dry shampoo is probably one of the Top Hair Products for School.

TRESemme Dry Shampoo also appears to be extremely easy to use. After shaking vigorously, lift your hair and spray in sections at the roots. Do this in short bursts, holding the can 8-12 inches away from your head. Do not, though, spray continuously like a hairspray!  Leave in for 1-2 minutes, and distribute throughout your hair with fingertips or a brush. If your nozzle gets clogged up, simply remove and wash under warm water, then reattach.

Ricky's NYC One-Stop Beauty Shop!

I recently was offered the chance to review a couple items from Ricky's NYC. I have heard of Ricky's before, but I was not aware of just how many different beauty supplies, tools and accessories they carried! Hair care, makeup, skincare, bath and body, with an overwhelming array of products in each category. Of course it took me a little bit of browsing to settle on a couple items :) However, I chose and received the ME Ballet Collection Nail Polish in Tutu Pink and a set of RickyCare No-Frizz Combs. I was really looking forward to trying out the combs especially, as I fight a daily battle with frizz. I love my curly hair, but the frizz gets aggravating! The No-Frizz comes in a variety of combs and brushes, and I received the Rat Tail Comb, Rake and Handle Curved Teeth Comb. The combs are made with a special process that actually bakes olive oil and NANO right into the comb! The resulting comb (or brush) eliminates frizz, adds shine, redistributes your hair's natural oils, and is anti-static! These are absolutely the best combs I have ever used! I can really see a difference in the frizz; while this comb doesn't necessarily make my hair frizz-free, it drastically reduces it. The Handle Curved Teeth comb is my daily stand-by now, and I can't imagine styling or combing my hair with anything else! 

The Pink Tutu Nail Enamel is a very sweet, feminine pink color. I applied this the day my package came in, and the first thing I noticed (aside from the very lovely color) was how fast it dried! Normally I have to wait 15 minutes or so between coats, but this dried super-fast and I was able to get both coats on both hands in a much quicker time. It adds a nice hint of color to my nails without being too bright or bold.
