* my thoughts* When I saw this I was in awe, My children’s eyes were as big as saucers and with their mouth’s drooling to get a taste, yes this was a good enough size for me to split and share among 3 children. With each of them savoring  their piece of  the Blue Raspberry gummy bear on a stick. I of course had to taste this for my self and  I found it quite delicious and the flavor is just right.. it was truly savory and quite good..and mess free which is a plus in my house..

John Frieda Root Awakening

May 10, 2009

Thanks to Bzzagent
I was given the chance to experience an invigorating Shampoo and Conditioner from the John Frieda Root Awakening Collection, While in the process of Lather rinse repeat a tingling sensation over came my roots and hair like a drill sergeant yelling at his cadets to stand about face . My hair has been through mother hood, perms , numerous colorings and many heated styling tools. My hair frizzes when there is the slightest humidity in the air, On goes the frizz control gel, Mousse etc, Which means another pony tail day Well after 2 days of using The John Frieda Root Awakening no frizz no pony tails, I can let my long thick hair flow and with a shiny healthy look. I will buy more and I can actually say I love my hair.

Have you tried The John Frieda Root Awakening Collection
I would love to hear about it
