A few weeks ago, I came back from the grocery store with a cart full of food, and a little something extra for myself.
I mean, I was buying all kinds of goodies for the kiddos, so why not something for me? I couldn’t help myself. On sale, I saw these.
All orange and pretty, calling my name. I absolutely love some of the other TIGI Bed Head products, so I was anxious to try this shampoo and conditioner, Self Absorbed.
They smell pretty good. Not like a natural orange scent, but more like an orange creamsicle. I had pretty high expectations, especially since they say “Mega Nutrient.” Although I’m not quite sure what that means, it sounds promising, doesn’t it?
The shampoo was just ok. It doesn’t do much for detangling, and that’s a necessity for my curly hair. I’m sad to say that for me, the conditioner was one of the worst I’ve ever used. My hair absorbed it, but it did nothing to detangle, smooth or soften it. I conditioned twice, hoping for the best. The best was not to come. I gave it a few more tries over the next two weeks, and ended up giving it to my 11 year old daughter (who, by the way, tried it and didn’t like it either).
It was a major disappointment, especially for the price. (I paid about $22 for the shampoo and condition at the grocery store.)
I guess I’m just not a Self Absorbed kind of girl.
