Does a trip to New York and a #Hair styling session with Antonio Rosales sound like a Dream Come True? #alRescate #DamageRescue - cc @HSforWomen @Influenster

I think something that resonates with almost everyone is wanting to have a 'great hair day'.  We all know it's pretty much a euphemism for a day that's going well! For me a great hair day is a multi-step process that starts with rinse and repeat and ends in me pretty much frying my hair to get it silky-smooth, and glossy-straight.

I really have tried to embrace my natural hair, oh how I have tried. It's fine, thin, and frizzy. Why did Mother Nature give me such a difficult cross to bear when it comes to hair? It is pretty much the tri-fecta of hard to style hair. Most hairdressers want to cut it short to bring out the natural curl and I protest because after all the years of experience living with it, I know that will just make the frizzies harder to tame.

So for the most part I stick to the same cut with the major difference being with or without bangs, depending on what I'm feeling at the time. For me to get the great blow-out, fresh from the Salon look that I love, I have to blow it completely dry then Flat Iron it. The results are worth it, but on a day-to-day basis the cumulative damage that does starts to really add up. Fried and frayed looking ends, and hair that gets dry at the ends and splits.

A year in and out of the hospital and the crazy meds they gave me has also made my hair go more nuts than usual, so what's a butterfly to do when her tresses are less than impressive?

Well, as an influencer who is also an influenster you sign up for a fun campaign and discover a new product that you immediately put to the test because it so fits a need you have!

I signed up for the Head & Shoulders Influenster Campaign, and have to admit I was pretty excited to try it out. I think we all have that area where we haven't yet found the product that gives you 100% of what you are looking for. And for me, it's two things, my hair, and acne, they are my daily battles and I will probably road test new products until I'm old and gray in search of that elusive product nirvana.

Unfortunately when my Vox box arrived, I got a box of Goo in the mail! (I have a funny feeling Santa's little Postal Elves punctured my package!). When I let the very nice folks at Head & Shoulders know that I got a box of Goo in the mail, they sent out a replacement. I couldn't wait for the replacement to arrive, because as un-appealing as a box of Goo sounds, the SMELL was fantastic and I couldn't quite get it out of my head.

I put the replacement products to work right away! And I will tell you I'm in LOVE with the scent of the new damage rescue collection from head & shoulders!


Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Works to relieve dry scalp and dandruff - (I know sometimes we think if we have oily hair in front that the scalp is not dry, and that is not necessarily true, your scalp could be dry and in need of mouisture even the strands in front look oily or greasy to you.) Remember the scalp, especially for my ladies with shorter hair styles is taking that direct heat, that can cause flakes to appear.

My Take:

After a year in a hospital bed, I am so excited to be out of the hospital and back home! I spent Last Christmas, New Years Eve, and most of January in one hospital undergoing exploratory surgeries where I even woke up a few times during which was horrible,and then switched to a new hospital where I spent my birthday. and I've been locked up indoors way to long. As for me 2013 will be a year of change on every single level conceivable, spiritually, emotionally, professionally, and personally. I want change, and I know I have to make that change, by stepping forward and being bold, not being afraid to try new things, embark on new adventures and journeys and most of all to take risks. If you don't take a risk, you never truly gain. I am ready for change, and this sounds like the perfect one to start with! And as a Latina, I love that the stylist is Latino and will be able to understand my concerns and hopefully find ways to transform me into a completely different butterfly. I guess taking me from hair chrysalis stage, and right OUT of it's cocoon straight into glossy, bouncy tresses Butterfly!

I love the fresh peach scent of the Shampoo and Conditioner and I didn't notice any new splits this week despite the fact I blew out my hair the same amount of days per week usual, I may just have yet hit on a drugstore find that rivals more expensive shampoo and conditioners that I've tryed. Bouncy, manageable hair that smells so good you want to smell yourself after you use it, AND that turns the head of the cute guy in the subway standing next to you? UM YES PLEASE!

Amo Tu Cabello/Love Your Hair - I'd say that's indeed possible with Head & Shoulders New Damage Control Shampoo and Conditioner! (I'll bet your hubby and your kiddos will start hugging you randomly for 'no reason' but it's just so they can smell your freshly washed hair!).

You can enter this contest too, so what are you waiting for, use the direct facebook link under the get social section to get started! If you win, please come back and let us know so we can congratulate you, and of course tag a picture of your new fab hairdo to us on Facebook so we can all see it and cheer you on! I promise to do the same if it's me! I've got my fingers and toes crossed on this one!
