What are you doing? I'm just feeding my Scalp!

Once the New York City summer humidity starting kicking in, I got a strong urge to chop my hair off, so I did. I cut it in a short, layered sassy style that I absolutely loved. Until I had to re-create it myself that is. I couldn't quite get it to look the same the stylist did. But I also cut it to make sure I nipped split ends in the bud, and now I want to be sure to keep it as healthy as it looked when I cut it.

My hair and I have had a lifelong battle, and I am not sure either of us ever win. We are both stubborn and want things our own way. My hair goes nuts when it's humid out, but I'm over ponytails and pulling it back, that's why I cut it, to force myself to style it more and not cop out with ponytails, buns or some other slicked back hairstyle.

Years ago I read this magazine article where they suggested changing your shampoo and conditioner periodically helps when your hair doesn't seem to be responding to your favorite shampoo and conditioner. With that in mind, I came across something new and thought I'd try it out.  Seems like there may be something to this theory!

When the hair gets frizzy, the hair goes SHOPPING!

Ascending Butterfly holding Duane Read Circular, time to shop!

Can't hurt to check out what's on sale right?

Look Up - It's the Haircare Aisle!

CLEAR Scalp & Hair THERAPY Shampoo & Conditioner

What's This? I spot the NEW CLEAR Scalp & Hair THERAPY Shampoo and conditioner! There were quite a few choices, after reading the descriptions of each, I selected the one called 'Strong Lengths' for my hair needs, but you can actually pick out which one works for you before even hitting the store, take the Clear Scalp & Hair Beauty Therapy Quiz, it's only 7 easy questions to strong, beautiful hair! There is another interesting test you can take that measures the strength of your hair. 99% of hair's natural strength and beauty comes from the scalp. So feed your scalp right, and you will be feeding your hair right!

I decided on 'Strong Lengths' from Clear Scalp & Hair Therapy

The Strong Lengths Strengthening Serum will help make hair stronger in only 7 days. It's a Scalp & Hair regimen that's ideal for hair prone to breakage. And because I tend to wear ponytails a lot, my hair is definitely more prone to breakage and split ends. (I for one can't imagine working out without picking my hair up and putting in a ponytail or bun, that part I just can't change!).

Duane Reade, What's in my basket?

Found additional sales I just couldn't pass up! AquaFresh Toothpaste on sale for only .99 cents, not the small size, the regular size! Pretty hair and pearly whites too, who can resist?

Duane Reade Shopping Basket, getting MUCH fuller by the minute!

Wait! How did those two pints of Ben & Jerry's get in MY basket?

I'm thinking it may be time to head to the cashier before I get tempted buy more snacks!

Waiting for a Cashier, Duane Reade

Trying to keep focused and ignore the snacks to my immediate right!

Manager signing a rain check!

Turns out they didn't have enough of the AquaFresh Toothpaste in stock so the manager gave me a raincheck so I could come back when they are back in stock! He was able to find me one (I had selected the wrong ones), so at least I was able to nab one at the great .99 cents sale price! SCORE!

Had to make sure I put the ice cream away first when I got home! They seem quite happy in my freezer next to an organic chicken! LOL

My new shampoo & conditioner and toothpaste!

My new finds in my bathroom on my fave 'zen shelf'
