Who said you needed to break the bank to pamper your hair? Nowadays drugstore beauty brands have stepped up their game and are vying for a piece of your paycheck. And we couldn’t be more thrilled with the cool new haircare products on the market. From shorter blow drying times to scalp treatments, there
Blowout Shortcut: Garnier Sleek Shot
Garnier just introduced one of their latest blowout remedies. If you style your own hair daily/weekly and complain about the length of time you spend blowdrying your hair then you need to pick up the Garnier Sleek Shot In Shower Styler, $7.
It’s an in-shower styler that mixed with your shampoo should cut a few minutes from your blow dry time. They claim to cut your blow dry time by half. I don’t know about that, for me the styler cut off 10 minutes from my drying time.
I played around with the Garnier Sleek Shot and
Second Day Haircare: John Frieda Day 2 Revival
People are looking to extend the days between their hair washes and John Frieda is looking to fill a void for a second (or third day hair). The haircare brand wants to give you that second day hair freshness that we sometimes need to extend out styles. And John Frieda has been by my side since I was a teen just figuring how to deal with my curly hair.
Riverdale actress Camila Mendes is the new spokesperson for John Frieda’s Day 2 Revival product line. “As someone with naturally textured hair, I tend to avoid washing daily so I can stretch my style for a few days,” Camila said. “But after a day or two, my waves just don’t look as good. I love that now there are products that can prolong my time between washes but still keep my hair looking freshly styled.”
Tip: A few other drugstore brands are jumping on this trend so look around.

The lightweight, detoxifying formula helps remove scalp buildup and protects against flakes and itch.” This pre-wash mask is especially great for all those dry shampoo lovers, but it also aids those with dandruff or flakes.

And since I don’t always have time to deep condition my hair or I just forget. But I definitely have 1 minute in the shower. I usually wash my hair 2-3 times a week. I will probably replace this with my daily conditioner at least once a week. And on a side note, I was totally attracted to the packaging of the bottle. The colors drew me in.
