Let Beauty Week Begin...

It's a new week, and with the help of constant perusals of Beauty Blogging Junkie and Lucky magazine, I have decided to crawl out of my recent beauty and fashion rut.

In honor of my renewed desire to be awake, alert, and fashionably-attired for work each morning, I'm going to post about all the beauty products I know and love this week. 

First up: Garnier Fructis Style Smoothing Milk.  

I'm not typically a "branded" girl when it comes to haircare; over the years, I've found that most shampoos/conditioners/stylers do a fine job on my hair, regardless of price or brand. 

Then about 3 years ago, I was turned on to Garnier Fructis Style Smoothing Milk by a friend.  I literally do not straighten my hair without it anymore.  

My hair is sort of frumpy-half wavy by nature, the only benefit being that with a little styling, I can have either bedhead waves or slick straight hair.  Straight and smooth hair seems to look less messy and more "done" so it tends to be my hair texture of choice.  But, detangling, combing, blowdrying, waiting for the straightener to heat up, and gliding the iron over my thick head of hair takes a bit longer than my "always running late" self would like, and most rushed mornings, I stick with the easy to manage wavy look.

By combing a dime-size drop of the smoothing milk through the ends of damp/wet hair, achieving the straight hair look becomes just as simple.  The hair lotion reallyyy helps with detangling, and I swear blowdrying my hair is 10 times faster when I use it. The hairbrush glides through my un-tangled hair like a dream I tell you, and I only need a light once-over with the straightener (if anything), to get the smoothest, sleekest straight hair I so badly want.

The first time I used Garnier Fructis Style Smoothing Milk, I was so impressed, I couldn't stop running my fingers through my hair.  I was in love and I never turned back.  I bet you won't either. 

Garnier Fructis Style Smoothing Milk is available at most drugstores, including Rite Aid, Duane Reade, and Walgreens.  It can also be found on www.drugstore.com for $3.48.  Not a bad deal.
