Formulated with 11 Essential Oils and VO5’s proprietary Five Essential Vitamins, Alberto VO5’s new Salon Series line penetrates your hair from roots-to-ends for salon beautiful hair at an affordable price."


My Thoughts:

I don't know about you, but once I had my daughters, showers/baths seemed to become a luxury.  Early on, I was lucky if I could hop in the shower before lunchtime.  As they have gotten and stopped napping twice a day (oh, do I miss those days, as I got to get in a cat nap, too), I find myself having to get up at the crack of dawn just to fit a quick shower in.  A good day in our house is being able to shower and have a HOT cup of coffee before the girls get up.  If, by chance, they are up at the same time as me - all bets are off, and I am a slave to their schedule. :-)

I have come to realize why so many of my friends love going to the spa -- even just for their birthday's or one time a year.  It is not only a way to pamper yourself, but also be able to unwind in peace, and rejuvenate.  But, for those of us who have little ones or don't have the money, a spa day may not be in our cards.  So, what can we?  We still deserve to pamper ourselves and feel great. 

With Mother's Day fast approaching, why not ask the kids to put together some of their allowance money and pick up a selection of Alberto VO5’s new Salon Series products, along with some scented body washes and maybe some nice body and hand lotions, and make a little in-home spa basket for you.  It will not cost a lot, and you get to treat yourself to a nice hot shower, while trying out this wonderful new line of hair care products from Alberto VO5.  

I was recently sent samples of the shampoo, condition and leave in conditioner to try.  Since receiving last weekend, I have been using the shampoo daily, followed up with the conditioner every 2-3 days (as my hair gets dried out and flat if I use conditioner daily).  I can't believe how silky soft my hair is.  I have been letting it grow so that I can donate my hair to the "Locks of Program" in celebration of my 5 yrs. out of cancer treatment.  Because I have been letting it grow for the past year, I find that the ends become brittle and I have a lot of split ends. But, after using this new line of Alberto VO5’s new Salon Series products, my hair feels and looks amazing. :-)  As for the leave-in conditioner, it does what the label states "All-in-one Hair Miracle -- Smoother styling and manageability for all hair types."  On days that I don't use the conditioner in the shower with the shampoo, I spritz a little of this product in my hair.  It makes brushing it easier, and leaves my hair with a nice shine -- like the ones you see on television for the hair care products. :-)

So, why not pamper yourself this Mother's Day with your own in-home spa day.  Instead of breakfast in bed, ask the kids to give you extra time in the shower,  as you enjoy the new Alberto VO5’s new Salon Series product line, that they have given you as a gift -- or, that you picked up to pamper yourself with. You deserve it!

Happy Mother's Day!
