Hair we go again
I am almost embarrassed to say how many hair products I have purchased, let alone how many I have purchased in the past two weeks. When I passed by the Redken store yesterday my inner junkie voice said go inside and I obeyed. I know that sales people are there to make a sale so why oh why do I find myself asking them, “anything good in here?” Of course they will say yes. As the woman began naming each line and its purpose she told me that she has only been working there since March, so I didn’t know if her recitation was really for me or to refresh her own memory. I asked her for a product with the word butter in it because I heard it was good and she began raving about it herself. She walked over to the shelf and bent down to get the treatment. As she was reaching for the product I was examining her tresses, hey could I really trust her recommendation if her hair was a mess? lol Since every strand on her head seemed to be in order when she handed me the product I gladly accepted it.
Smooth Down Butter Treat, doesn’t the name of this product just make you feel like your hair will be silky after applying this treatment? After shampooing your hair, you apply this treatment for 5-15 minutes and when you wash it out your hair it wll feel so smooth and silky. This treatment is marketed toward those with "dry or unruly hair". I enjoyed this product, it not only felt good in the palm of my hands but when I washed it out, my hair was indeed silky. You know I have to tell you about some of the ingredients, macadamia oil, candelilla wax, and cationic refiners which is used for frizz control. I would buy this product again especially since it was only 14.99. I am heavy handed when it comes to hair products so I know this wont last me for very long and when the time comes I will certainly buy it again. The sales woman was kind enough to throw in a few trail size products so I had an overall pleasant experience at the Redken store.
Slightly off topic question of the day.
If a sales person makes a recommendation and they claim to use whatever they are recommending if that part of their body/hair is not looking good do you still make the purchase? For example, a sales woman with scaly, flaky skin once told me that she lives by a particular skincare line; I thanked her for her time then quickly returned the items to the shelf and made my exit.
