In Which Bella Falls Hard For a $5.99 Shampoo

When you're on crutches, even the smallest tasks can be daunting. (You just try to carry a glass of water while carrying yourself. Can't be done.) In the name of simplicity, I've minimized my grooming routine, which means that I haven't been blow-drying my hair. Normally, letting it air-dry makes it flatter than Flat Stanley under a steamroller. And yet, I've been getting compliments left and right on my hair. What gives?

Then I realized that it had been about a month since I'd switched my shampoo/conditioner combo. Since then, I've been using John Frieda Luxurious Volume shampoo and conditioner ($5.99 each). They promise to make hair look fuller, and, well, they deliver. Even without using a hair dryer, my hair is bouncy and shiny, and the products smell good, too. I know I might seem like some crazy shampoo proselytizer, but it is always pleasing to stumble upon a product that does what it says it'll do. And it's even better when it's reasonably priced. So while my body may have limited mobility, at least my hair has body. (It's the little things that make my day.)

I just picked up these products and you are right - they're great. Even if I shower at night and let my hair air dry - in the morning my roots are lifted - but the ends are soft. Great stuff.

John Frieda is a top shelf brand here (You pay US$5.99 we pay US$25), the stuff works an absolute charm and lasts forever! My frizzy haired mum swears by it as a quick fix that lasts a while.

Hmm, you know, I'm almost out of shampoo & conditioner. I've been buying Dove Go Fresh, which I love, but now I kind of want to try this! Will definitely keep in mind.

Thanks for the well-wishes. I've taken to walking around the house with a tote bag around my neck. It looks like a feed bag. I feel classy. ;)
