A Product Review (& Coming Tomorrow.....)

Every once in a while I decide that I need a switcher-oo in my daily routine. Here recently, that switcher-oo is in my shampoo/conditioner. After having Isaac, I reasoned in my brain that my shower time might be super short and it might be the only "me time" I get during the week, so I allowed myself to indulge in some really great shampoo & conditioner. Like, as in, I'm embarrassed by how much money I shelled out. My hair is colored and I also reasoned that IF a better shampoo & conditioner could help me stretch out the time between salon visits, then it'd be a little more worth the extra money spent.

I went with Bumble and Bumble Color Minded shampoo & conditioner

I've been using it for almost 4 months now and honestly I'm not all that thrilled with it. Maybe it's the price that's got me down, or maybe I just dont think it's done what it's promised me. Here's the breakdown:


  • My hair is noticeably more shiny!
  • A small amount goes a long way. I balked at the 8oz bottle initially, but it's lasted me a lot longer than I anticipated. 


  • $$$$ It aint cheap. Have I made that abundantly clear already? 
  • Tangles galore! The conditioner seems very light and my hair gets tangled very easily.
  • I couldn't tell any difference in the overall color protection. It seemed just as faded & washed out when I got it re-colored this morning as usual. 
So, bottom line is that I probably would not have re-indulged in this combo unless it completely revolutionized my hair. And it didn't. So bye-bye Bumble and Bumble. I shall continue my quest for a new shampoo/conditioner routine. I'm probably equally curious about trying Kiehls and Ojon. I'm taking suggestions! 

What's your favorite shampoo/conditioner combo?? 

Starting tomorrow, I'm doing something really special on here. A Month 4 Moms starts bright & early March 1st and will run all the way until the 30th. Check back here tomorrow to read a little more about A Month 4 Moms and what you can expect over the next month! Tell your friends! Tell your family!! Tell your friend's family! See you back here tomorrow!

PS. I didn't receive any compensation of any sort for this review. Just thought you'd like to know what I think about some shampoo. Over & Out.

Yeah I have a hard time spending a lot of money on shampoo and conditioner! For the most part, the basic stuff works for my hair. Maybe one day I'll branch out to the fancy stuff just to see how it works! :)

I'm boring. I always use herbal esscense shampoo and conditioner. I did however buy a frizz-ease conditioner yesterday. Oo ahh. I'm living dangerously now straying from my usual. ;)
