It’s no secret that being a mom is hard work. It’s easy to get so caught up in taking care of everyone else, that we actually forget to take care of ourselves. This is a horrible mistake that so many of us moms make. Even worse is the mom that knows she should take time to take care of herself, but the very thought of it makes her feel guilty. Yes, you know what I’m talking about! We can often feel like we are being selfish by taking time to care for ourselves instead of spending that time doing some for our family or home.
Something you have to realize is that not only is it important to take a break from taking care of others, it’s critical to your mental health. If you don’t take care of yourself, chances are nobody else will! If you let yourself go by the wayside, you eventually won’t be capable of taking care of your family properly, either physically or mentally. This is why it’s so important to take some pride in your health and wellbeing.
A mom who feels good about herself is more likely to go about her day with a happy positive attitude, which makes cleaning poop off your carpet a little less miserable. You know it’s true. Think about how you feel when you are magically having a great hair day, and for no good reason. Doesn’t that feel good? Doesn’t that just tickle you pink and make you feel a little more confident and capable of doing everything you need to do?
Think about the last time you went to the salon… Didn’t you come out of there feeling like a million bucks?! (If you didn’t, get a new hairdresser!) I know the last time I went to the salon (6 months ago!) that I came out of there feeling gorgeous, sexy and more confident than when I walked in the door. It’s amazing what great hair can do for our confidence and wellbeing.
You don’t have to make time to visit the salon though, and if you have a family to take care of, finding time to even go to the salon sans children, might be an near impossible feat. Thankfully, with the right hair care regimen, you can achieve the nourished, vibrant, and lustrous hair that you desire right in the comfort of your own home.
Nexxus New York Salon Care hair products contain premium, salon-quality ingredients that leave your hair looking healthy, enriched, and gorgeous. You can get that fluid, soft, lustrous hair that will give you that extra bounce in your step that makes it easier to get through your busy day. No matter what happens in your day, be it stains on your new shirt, melted crayon in your carpet or muddy foot prints across your kitchen floor, you’ll feel confident to pull up your big girl panties and be the supermom you are, thanks to a great hair day.
This spring, I swapped out my usual hair care products in favor of Nexxus New York Salon Care hair products…
Nexxus New York Salon Care Hair Products
I’ve been washing and conditioning my hair with Nexxus Emergencee Repair Rebalancing Shampoo and Nexxus Emergencee Repair Restoring Conditioner for about a month. With these two amazing products alone, I feel like this is where science meets hair care. They are truly revolutionary in the way they wash and condition my hair.
First off, the shampoo smells great, lathers up nicely, rinses clean, and a little goes a long way. If I have a ton of styling products in my hair like beach sea salt spray and mousse, then I need to shampoo my hair twice to get it really clean. Otherwise, one shampoo and rinse is all I need before applying conditioner.
The conditioner is top notch. It’s quite thick like a leave on conditioner that you would scoop out of a tub with your hands, but I find that having it thick like that really helps it stay put wherever you want it. I concentrate a blob of it on the ends of my hair and it stays put for the recommended 3 minutes. I generally apply it on my hair immediately after shampooing and rinsing. I then proceed to wash my face, my body and brush my teeth before rinsing the conditioner off.
Unlike most heavy conditioners, this has not caused any build-up in my fine hair. I also haven’t had a problem with it feeling greasy or weighed down like most moisturizing conditioners tend to do. I have found that I only need about half the amount I would normally use of an average conditioner. I think this will make the bottle last quite a bit longer.
On top of leaving my hair smooth, silky and lustrous, I think it has a nice, mild scent to it that my husband loves. This conditioner has really done wonders for my hair. After seeing what amazing results I had from using it, I started using it on my son’s hair (he has gorgeous, long hair!) and now I don’t need to use a spray-on detangler on his hair anymore.
In addition to the shampoo and conditioner, I’ve been using the Nexxus Emergencee Repair Reconstructing Treatment every other week. This stuff is truly amazing. If you have damaged, brittle hair from coloring, bleaching, or just life in general, you should absolutely try this treatment. It has an odd texture and feels quite strange in your hair (as the instructions mentions it might), but after you rinse it out and use the Nexxus Emergencee Repair shampoo and conditioner, you won’t even believe it’s your hair. My hair feels and looks healthier, silkier, softer, and totally renewed! I am in love with this reconstructing treatment and will continue to use it on my hair.
I’ve also been using Nexxus New York Salon Care Mousse + Volumizing Foam, Nexxus New York Salon Care Dry Shampoo + Refreshing Mist, Nexxus New York Salon Care Maxximum Finishing Mist.
The Mousse + Volumizing Foam seems to be a different formula than the old Nexxus Mousse that I was used to, but I still like it. Less is more with this Mousse and Volumizing Foam. Start by adding just a grape sized amount to hair and work up from there. If you use the appropriate amount, you will LOVE the results. Soft, shiny, touchable volume. It doesn’t have a strong hold though, so it works best on conjunction with the Maxximum Finishing Mist.
On two and 3 day hair, refresh your style with the Dry Shampoo + Refreshing Mist. This is probably the best dry shampoo I’ve ever used. It’s light, doesn’t have an intrusive smell, and it just gently refreshes your hair so you don’t have to wash it as often. I personally like dry shampoo because I don’t have time to wash and style my hair every day. Honestly, I only wash my hair 2 or 3 times a week. In between washes, I can refresh and revitalizes my hairstyle with this Dry Shampoo and Refreshing Mist. For someone with colored hair, this is an excellent product to have on hand because being able to go longer in between washing your hair will help your color stay vibrant, longer. This one is a must-have!
As you can see, the results of using Nexxus New York Salon Care hair product speak for themselves.
