Oscar Blandi Instant Volumizing Shampoo

Travel size $11

So once again I reached into my box o' samples and pulled out this volumizing shampoo.  I had visions of bouncy hair ... blow drying it to volumized perfection.  Instead I got the biscuit (as my husband would say).

First off let me just say that it smelled like pine-sol with a hint of citrus.  I thought hmmm ... not so great so maybe my conditioner will cover up the smell.  Then ... INTENSE BURNING!  Seriously as if my head was up against a blow torch.  Immediately washed it out and then you guess it ... STRAW!  I conditioned my hair twice and still sounded horrible when I brushed it.  So I put some more conditioner in my hair to sleep in overnight.  Hopefully my hair will be back to normal tomorrow.

Needless to say I cannot recommend using this product and now I am afraid to use any of the other shampoos in the box for fear that they are all just as bad.  

Have you tried this?  What did you think?


  1. Can't say i have tried this but i will stay away from this product. Where did you get this sample?

  2. Not a fan of this line. I haven't use this product but other products, didn't think they worked well at all.
    Hope you hair is feeling better today!!
    Best, Mree

  3. I haven't tried it and can say that I won't ever try it! Thanks for the review!

  4. Never tried it and now I won't ever! Great post!

  5. Oh no! Thanks for sharing with the rest of us... stinks that you were the guinea pig, but we all are grateful for it!

12 Things You Need for Successful Weight Loss

1) Get your head in the game! Weight loss doesn't happen without dedication.  You have to have the mindset to get it done.  I've said in the past that motivation for me is like a light switch ... when it's on it is ON.  Even though motivation is one of the key things you need ~ you also need patience, understanding, time, and willpower.  You have to make a commitment to yourself and stick with it. 2) Track your progress! Tracking keeps you honest to yourself.  Without tracking you can sabotage yourself into overeating.  For example, tell me EVERYTHING you ate on Friday off the top of your head, not so easy right?  Also, there are tons of apps out there that you can quickly track or you can do it the old fashion way of writing it down.  Find what works for you and do it daily.  Also, as a rule I normally track my whole day in the morning.  Breakfast, Lunch, Snack & Dinner.  This also keeps me in track.  I can budget out my day and make changes if things arise or when y…

It's Okay Thursday/Hello Monday #5

... to be so productive that you "forget" to blog!

... to have tire issues on April Fool's Day and have to preface every text with ... this is NOT an April Fool's joke.

... to buy 11 items from the dollar days area at Target in an effort to get organized.  {hmmmm ... maybe a good idea for a blog post.}

... to forget to finish this post!

Hello Monday#5 It is truly amazing how much better my makeup and hair look on the weekend. So if you have never tried Starbucks Via Iced Coffee - I highly recommend. So I just watched Into the Woods over the weekend.  Why did the music sound EXACTLY like Sweeney Todd? Seriously I even googled that sh!t and came up with nothing. Why is it on weekends I am all about managing my down time  like it was my last meal or something.  Um no, I cannot do XYZ,  that is a total lack of consideration to my weekend of staying at  home and doing nothing for 48 hours straight.  
How are you doing today?
