Happy New Year !

Happppppppy New Year !

Happy Neeeeeeeeeeeew Year !

How do you say it ?

I'm more the Haaaaaaaaaaaaaapy New Year types.

Unless of course I feel like a Happy Neeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeew Year. Then I just say that.

How many of you stayed in welcoming the new year ?

I did. I stayed in, tucked under blankets catching up on episodes of The City. And just so I don't feel totally like a loser I wish someone else says they did too. Go on say it. Its the new year, make a good girl feel better...

I really don't know how much more longer I can refer to myself as girl. I'll be 26 in eight days. Indian Lady just has a very weird tone to it. Oh yes, I know, you know what I mean. Lady...

Anyways while I sat at home all bundled up I had something shiny to be happy about among other things. So happy that I even tweeted about it.

My hair.
My hair was awesome.
Totally awesome.
Totally awesome in a Jennifer Aniston kinda way.

I've been using The John Frieda Root Awakening Nourishing Moisture Shampoo & Conditioner for Dry Hair. The shampoo & conditioner contain Eucalyptus & Peppermint Oils that add a blast of life to my hair and scalp. The peppermint isn't very strong so I'm not left shivering in the shower. And the scent of eucalyptus reminds me of when I was ten. My school was surrounded with eucalyptus trees and its amazing scent ! So calm and refreshing...


Zero Frizz Y'all !

The conditioner is good. Very good actually. But the real hero is the shampoo. Twice I went without using the conditioner and my hair still felt good. I never go without using a conditioner. Haven't in over ten years but just after cleansing with the shampoo my hair was already feeling good. So I got out. There was a little frizz that I had to take care of but other wise it is brilliant !

With the conditioner I have zero frizz. This is a first for me. I didn't have to set my hair or my bangs. Everything just fell into place on its own. That's big given how much hair I have on my head.

Winter Flakes

Before I started on this John Frieda shampoo, I'd been having an issue with dry scalp.A dose of Nizoral, couple of times took care of it. I wanted to throw this in because its winter and a lot you could be facing some unwanted flakes. On my dry scalp this pair of shampoo & conditioner worked well to restore its moisture and has kept me flake free. I haven't had to use Nizoral for weeks now ! Give it a try if you've been having similar issues.

Complete With A Downside

This is one of the most complete shampoos I've tried in a long time. Softness, shine, no frizz, soothing scent, refreshing, non drying - great on all fronts !

Except on the quantity. We only get 8.45 fl.oz for $6.99. Most other drugstore shampoos come in nearly 12.5 fl.oz packs. I'm gonna see if Costco carries one of those humongous sizes of this one. Will let you know if I find it.

As for 2010, this is my year.

I entered 2010 with great hair. You know what they say right ? Anything that happens on the first day of New Year will continue happening all year long. Any year that begins with great hair is going to be a great year !

Y'all agree ?

Love,
Indian Girl

Hi Pri !

Happy new Year !
I tried Frizz Ease and hated it ! LOL ! I think I even blogged about it a year or so back. But this one has been a winter savior !

I love their Brilliant Brunette conditioner! It works great for my hair. My sister hates it, though, so they're very hit and miss. Should try this one.

Oh, and I stayed in too, girl. I went out for dinner with the boy, but was home before midnight so that we wouldn't have to contend with revelers traffic. A shot of Baileys, a nice book, good music and a warm blanket. Perfect evening! I don't think there's anything loser-ish at all!

I stayed home too hun and it's good to know I wasn't the only one. There's nothing loser-ish about it at all!

I loved this conditioner (haven't tried the shampoo) but found it pretty comparable to a Back to Basics litre sized conditioner I got at Ulta for like 10 bucks, which was more cost effective since I ran out of this one in like a week. This one is a little lighter but they have the same effect on my hair--I have to heat style a lot less.

Ooooh just saw this stuff on the Ulta website and it's buy one get one 50% off right now! I think that makes the price to product ratio a little easier to handle :)
