Beauty Buy: L’Oréal Repair Remedy Mask

Although I periodically write about beauty products, I don't really consider myself a beauty blogger.  But every once in awhile I fall in love with something I try, so why should I keep it to myself?  That was the case with this Repair Ready Mask from L’Oréal Paris.

I confess that I wash my hair at least four or five times a week, which is a lot more often than hair professionals recommend.  I'm the kind of person who cannot really feel clean without clean hair, and hot, humid weather or exercise can leave it feeling pretty gross.

On top of that, blow dryers, flat irons, curling irons and all of the heat-blasting tools connected with TV appearances really take their toll.  

I have tried products to repair heat damage, but never really found something I loved.  Besides, most were pricey salon formulas, while I definitely prefer more affordable things I can scoop up at Walgreens or CVS.

On a recent visit to the "beauty closet" at Alison Brod PR, I picked this up.  I stuck it in the bathroom cabinet, and promptly forgot about it during my heavy travel schedule. With a few days at home this week - most of them hot, humid virtually make-up-free days - I decided to give it a try.

One use - and I am hooked!

My hair went from dry with lots of flyaways to feeling super-soft and silky smooth after just one use.  Since they recommend using it twice a week, I am looking forward to adding it to my routine. 

Did I mention it is only $8.99 tops?  That's a double-win in my book.

What are your must-have hair products?  What do you save on, and what is worth the splurge?
