I Got My Favorite Shampoo From the Gym, and It's Been My Best Beauty Hack All Year
I'm just going to come right out and say it: I love my hair. It's long and thick, with just the right amount of wave. Even though it has its issues (ahem, frizz), I still wouldn't trade it for anyone else's. I use an amazing hair serum but tend to stick to drugstore shampoo, and that's about as far as my haircare routine goes. I didn't really see the value in fancy shampoos or overly expensive products, but that all changed once I started going to the gym.
There's a Barry's Bootcamp a stone's throw from the POPSUGAR office, and I started going in the morning before work. If you've ever been to this class, you know that a post-workout shower is a necessity. In the bathrooms, they stock Oribe Signature Shampoo ($44) and Conditioner ($44). As I continued to go to Barry's, I noticed that I really liked the way my hair looked after class. I always air-dry my hair, but this time, it felt softer, silkier, and shinier than ever before. I liked it so much that I decided it was time for me to invest, because as great of a workout as it is, I can't go to Barry's every single day.
My hair looks shinier and healthier than ever before, and I actually look forward to washing my hair, which can sometimes be an arduous task.
This might just be my favorite beauty product I've ever bought. My hair looks shinier and healthier than ever before, and I actually look forward to washing my hair, which can sometimes be an arduous task. But I think the most important thing I learned from this is the benefit of self-care. This was something I bought for me, and I feel so much better because of it. It's pricier than my typical shampoo, but the results are so worth it. Plus, it's something I actually use, not an investment that just sits on my shelf.
If you're thinking about investing in a beauty product, consider this piece of advice: it should be something that brings you joy. This shampoo and conditioner bring me more joy than I could've imagined, and to me, that's worth every penny. If you want shiny, healthy hair that makes you smile every time you look in the mirror, you've got to give this a try.
