John Frieda® Brilliant Brunette® Visibly Deeper Treatment - #AHairBetter

Hey guys! For today's post, I teamed up with John Frieda®.

Their delicious products transformed my flat, dull and somewhat frizzy mane into the sleek, rich and enviable hair that every girl wants!
Ever since I had Taylor, I've felt a little too much like his personal assistant to leave much room for 'me time'. It's a slippery slope that every new mom comes to and I promised myself that I wouldn't fall off. In the past, I've always made time to gussy myself up and I'm finding it even more important now that I'm a new mother. Lately, I've learned that a 10-minute shower could be the difference between a midday meltdown (and I'm not talking about Taylor!) and a blowout can change the way I greet my husband at the end of the day. They say, 'sleep when your baby sleeps'. I've taken it a step further to: 'sleep, shower and primp'. It may take several naps before you get to the primping part, but it is so worth it to keep your pre-baby identity. 

This post is littered with pictures of my new and improved do, but here's what I looked like before I started using the John Frieda® Brilliant Brunette® Visibly Deeper TM shampoo and conditioner. Don't worry, I know how tired I look and how dull and dead my hair is; that's what got me interested in the line!

I (like the rest of the population) would love to spend the day (and a small fortune) at the salon getting my hair revamped, but it's just not realistic. Instead, I swapped my daily hair products for the Brilliant Brunette® Visibly Deeper TM Colour Deepening Shampoo and Conditioner and plugged in the Brilliant Brunette® Visibly Deeper TM Colour Deepening Treatment (heaven!) I topped this weekly ritual off with Frizz Ease® Forever Smooth TM Anti-Frizz Primer, before letting it air dry or giving myself a quick blowout. This weekly moment of zen was crucial for me going from a groggy zombie to a hot mom with killer hair!

Most of you have seen the John Frieda® Brilliant Brunette® Visibly Deeper TM Treatment collection in stores or have potentially used it before. Personally, I didn't expect to see a difference after the week, let alone in just one wash. Especially since my hair is mostly my natural brown, save for the grown-out ombré. I had forgotten how rich and lustrous my hair could be! My favorite product in the collection is definitely the Brilliant Brunette ® Visibly Deeper TM Colour Deepening Treatment because it adds so much dimension in very little time. I left it on for 10 minutes and it looked like I had gotten professional work done at my favorite salon.

Enough about me! Our friends from John Frieda are holding #AHairBetterContest where YOU could win a hair makeover and a stylish weekend getaway for two! Get your luscious locks over to their contest page for more info. Good luck!

Thank you John Frieda® for sponsoring this post and helping me out of my beauty rut. You saved me from marching into a salon and spending a small fortune on a cut and colour just because I was ready for a change, but didn't know what that change was. This collection satisfied my itch and made me realize that you don't need to shell out the big bucks to get the look you want; sometimes it's staring right back at you from the beauty aisle.
