The Drybar now available at Sephora and QVC and a #giveaway
Last year, I attended BlogHer in NYC with my friend Darlynn. We arrived a day early to get a little city vacation time in during our trip. We both started our early morning arrival to the city with hair appointments. Darlynn got a blow out at The Drybar while I got a braid at The Braid Bar. It was the best money either of us spent starting off our vacation. While my braid was suggested to last 48-72 hours, I was very impressed with how long Darlynn's hair stayed movie star perfect.
When I heard the news that The Drybar is now selling their famous products to the public nationwide at Sephora, QVC and Drybar, I squealed with delight. I am what some may call a beauty product whore. The amount of beauty products I have on my bathroom counter / cabinet would freak most people out. I am the person who buys product just to buy it. Of course I was instantly intrigued with this line, who names their products after adult beverages.
Happy Hour Blowout Shampoo and Conditioner, Southern Belle Maximizing Mousse, Detox Dry Shampoo, 100 Proof treatment oil. How cool is this line! The product names are beyond awesome.
I received two products from The Drybar product line to try out. I have to state, I had a hard time choosing two - I was leaning towards selecting on name vs. the products results. Marketing geniuses..........
The Chaser Shine Pomade
This product blew me away. I am always using my boyfriends pomade to settle my flyaway's. This pomade not only smelled perfect but added the perfect amount of post styling shine. While one may find it costly at $28, it is well worth the price. The Chaser Shine Pomade instantly smooths hair to prevent frizz and flyaway's. It never makes your hair look dry and it leaves it with a perfect polished ending.
Hot Toddy Heat Protector and Frizz Fighter
A letter to this product: Hello Lover. You have jumped every product in my collection to be my favorite beauty product. I could not imagine a day without you in my life. I. LOVE. YOU.
OK, so that may be a little dramatic but it is how I truly feel about this hair product. At first sight, I was taken aback as I was expecting it to be larger. Yet, you do not need much of this product and the small bottle will last a long time. Especially mixed with a treatment oil (like Drybar's 100 proof oil). You use this product before blow drying to create a breathable, protective barrier against heat. It helps fight frizz by sealing the ends and the restorative formula helps condition and repair hair. LOVE in a small bottle for $33. Well worth every penny.
So here is the good news. The good people at The Drybar will give a lucky reader of mine the same two products I am in love with!! This is retailed for over $60!
I want to know what your favorite hair product is. Would you spend extra money to have a non-permanent hair treatment such as a blowout done?
