I know I don't usually post at 9 o'clock on Monday nights, but I wanted to go ahead and get this out to you all while I had time, because... I got another VoxBox!
This one was the Tresemmé Reverse Your Routine box with a full sized shampoo and conditioner.
This is a Volumizing system, and is reffered to as "Reverse Your Routine" because you conditioner before you shampoo... Weird right? I have to say I was a little confused and skeptical at first.
The concept is that when you put conditioner in your hair and rinse then residue is left on weighing down your hair. My thoughts were that the residue left were the moisturizing properties and that you wouldn't want to rid yourself of all of them... It just seemed a little pointless.
I have been using this combination periodically for a few weeks now, and surprisingly I actually really like it! When I get out of the shower my hair does feel much lighter than usual. Though it is hard to tell if I have much more volume because my hair is so long (about an inch below my back bra strap), my hair does kink and curl up much better after (since I have naturally wavy hair). Because volumizing shampoos tend to be drying anyway I thought this would really dry out my hair. I haven't had a haircut in two months and have been using this a few times a week, yet my hair seems as soft as ever with no split ends!
When I use this I generally use a pump of this conditioner and a pump of my regular conditioner. This conditioner seems pretty thin and it would take a ton to get combed through my hair, especially since I have to do it before washing, but the combination has been working well. I let that sit in my hair a few minutes and then rinse and wash. The only real downside I've noticed is more shedding because it is difficult to run the conditioner through my hair before washing, and then my hair is re-tangled after washing and stepping out of the shower.
Overall I really enjoyed this and plan to continue using it! Thank Yoou Influenster for introducing me to another wonderful product!
