Fab Friday: April 17

While it has been difficult to concentrate on anything with the siren call of sunshine and 65 degree temperatures beckoning outside my window, I have finally settled on my Fab Friday choice:

Did you know I am vain? Oh yes, it's true. Despite my current outward appearance (I make my 24-year-old self CRINGE sometimes), I am vain. Maturity and a reorganization of disposable funds have collided to make my vanity far less obvious than it once was, but one of the things I am most secretly vain about is my hair. It has taken me many years to come to terms with my hair. And once I did, pregnancy changed it & forced a reevaluation upon my sleep-deprived brain. But one product which has stood the test of time, grey hair (not that I have any yet - No, No!), and 2 body-chemistry-altering babies is Terax Conditioner. It's described as ultra moisturizing, and it is. I only wash my hair about twice a week, and on one of those days I use Terax. I dispense a quarter-sized amount, massage it in, and INSTANTLY my hair is softer, smoother, and tangle-free. I love it. Love, love, love it.

Now ladies, this miracle product does not come cheap, but think of it this way: your hair is your crowning glory. Don't you want to have soft, beautiful, bouncin' and behavin' hair? I know I do. So pamper yourself with regular trims, and treat yourself to this miracle elixir. 6.7 oz. will cost you $22 at Sephora. A tube this size usually lasts me a YEAR. When you use quality products, you don't have to dump on a handful like you do with the cheap stuff. At approximately $0.42 per application, I think this is well worth the money.

Oh, darling, were we separated at birth? I harbor much vanity about my hair. I hide my shampoo from the kids. I LOVE a good conditioner. I use expensive brushes and I adore product.

I write the date of purchase on hair care products, so that when they run out I can evaluate their cost and decide whether it was worth it. My liters of good shampoo last a Looonnnnggg time (just like you, at least a year.)

My favorite anti frizz product (b/c I had to find a good one when I moved here!) is Morroccon Gold Miracle Oil. It's awesome.

I will be trying Tetrax conditioner very soon.

Amy, I generally don't like to admit this to other people, but I TOTALLY have hair vanity too. I don't always make it look beautiful, but it's the one part of me that I KNOW I can make beautiful if I treat it right. I'll have to try is magic elixir someday...
