Head & Shoulders Damage Rescue Shampoo/Conditioner

Two weeks ago, I received a lovely surprise by Influenster.  If you don’t know what Influenster is, it is pretty much a website that allows you to try out products for free and review them.  Click here for more info.

I received the Head & Shoulders Damage Rescue Shampoo/Conditioner and I couldn’t be happier.  I was on my last drop of my shampoo and was planning on purchasing a new one when this came in.  

According to the product website, “the Head & Shoulders Damage Rescue system was developed specifically to nurture the scalp AND dry damaged hair with intensive care, leaving hair up to 10X Stronger in Just Four Washes. Because of the carefully balanced combination of ingredients in the formula, Damage Rescue delivers both, intensive hair and scalp care with the proven anti-dandruff efficacy of Head & Shoulders.”

I’ve had problems with my hair for many years now.  My hair is dry, frizzy, and coarse that it requires a ton of products to achieve that healthy, shiny looking hair every woman desires.  I’ve tried plenty of products from drug store brands to high end salon brands and nothing seems to work permanently.  Lately, I’ve been putting my hair up in a bun or ponytail because I  get so frustrated with my hair and don’t want to spend hours trying to make it look nice and shiny.  Also, my scalp has been quite dry due to the weather and dandruff city has taken over.  So you can all imagine how excited I was when I received this shampoo/conditioner.

My first impression when using this was that it smelled really good.  I love good smelling shampoo so this definitely made me love it already.  I also noticed that I only needed about a dime-size amount to wash my short-medium hair and it lathered really well.  After washing with the shampoo, I used the conditioner and O.M.G. did my hair feel soft and smooth.  Yes, I know a lot of conditioners give you that feeling but I’ve experienced some conditioners that leave my hair feeling sticky and not so smooth.  Finally, after getting out the shower and air drying my hair, I noticed that it was a bit softer and silkier looking than other previous shampoos I’ve used.  I didn’t want to get too excited about the product until I used it a few more times which I did.  I have used this product for 2 weeks now and so far so good.  My hair is softer and dandruff has slowly diminished but unfortunately my hair is still frizzy and dry looking L  However, when I use a hair straightner it is less frizzy looking so that’s good but I want to stay away from hot hair tools as much as possible.  I’m going to keep using this shampoo in hopes that slowly my frizzy, dry hair will evolve into beautiful, healthy, shiny looking hair. 

Have any of you tried this line from Head & Shoulders yet?  If so, what are your thoughts?
