Nourish Your Hair with Shielo Intensive Hair Mask

Is winter all but a distant memory yet?  Well....it's been a bit of a struggle between Old Man Winter and Mother Nature here, but I think that Mother Nature is slowly, but surely winning the battle.  (Finally)

With an extended winter, that includes more time inside in dry heat then wanted, comes dry, damaged hair.  I was dealt the dry, damaged hair card - it is definitely something that I am used to.  But, it isn't something that I need to become accustomed to when I have great products like Shielo Intensive Hair Mask. 

Nourish Your Hair 

Intensive Hair Mask does the job of your favourite conditioner - just better.  I find that I still use my go-to hair shampoo & conditioner system, and simply mix it up by using Intensive Hair Mask in place of the conditioner once or twice a week depending upon my needs.

The first thing I noticed was that I only needed a small amount of product to fully coat my shoulder length hair and I loved that beautiful, tropical smell.  Even with just one application, I could see and feel lasting results.

Being almost mid-forties, I find myself constantly colouring my hair to try to stop the impeding gray hairs.  In fact, now I have more gray than natural colour anymore.  In combating that gray army I am constantly colouring my hair, sometimes at the salon and sometimes at home.  Colouring my hair makes it super dry and often my colourist makes a comment on how I need some intensive moisture therapy.  I've been using Intensive Hair Mask for four to six weeks (weekly) and on my recent trip to the salon to have my hair coloured, I was told my hair was in the best shape it's been in for quite some time.  The only thing I've changed is adding this product to my showering routine.

You can find and purchase this product through Shielo for $32.00.  It's a great investment and your hair will thank you.

Shielo is well known for their high quality hair products containing organic ingredients.   

Disclaimer: I sampled this product to give my honest opinion. I was under no pressure to write about it or say that I liked it. All opinions are mine based on my experiences, yours could be different.

Don't Forget Mom: Mother's Day is May 8th #LoveHallmarkCA

April has been a bit of a struggle - temperatures had a difficult time getting up to seasonal, and there was even a couple of days with dreaded snow in the air.  BUT,  the calendar has changing to the month of May, and I only envision plenty of lovely Spring days ahead.  And, with the month of May, comes Mother's Day. 

Do you realize that Mother's Day is next weekend?   It's time to celebrate Mom with Hallmark.   I love Hallmark for choosing Mother's Day gifts.  They always carry the sentiment I am hoping to convey, Hallmark has a great selection, at an equally great value.

Last year on Mother's Day, our family arrived at Walt Disney World.  While, I doubt we'll be able to top that this year, we can plan a day together which might involve a barbecue or something along that lines.

Lovely Gifts, Galore

Find the perfect gift for mom at Hallmark.  Here's a little inspiration to get you started...

 You just can't go wrong with picture frames.  

One of my favourite things is seasonal tea towels - this one is very pretty and spring(y)
The notepad is cute for keeping on the kitchen counter and perfect for making a quick note. 

Carry your morning coffee in style with a new travel mug. 

Fairy Gardens are huge, I see them popping up all over the place and hallmark has a great collection, which is weather resistant.   You'll want to stop in to check out Gardenfair.  

And, my very favourite item: Lights in Bloom Round Ceramic Lantern is absolutely gorgeous with or without a lit candle. 

How's that for a little Mother's Day inspiration?  Hallmark is the place to be for sweet and thoughtful gifts.  Happy Mother's Day to all Moms, I hope you feel the love this weekend.

Rate and Review your Favourite Products at P&G Everyday #PGMom

Disclosure: I am a P&G mom. As part of my affiliation with this group I receive products and special access to P&G events and opportunities. The opinions on this blog are my own. 


Did you know that you can rate P&G products you use in your home every day, in and out,  at P&G Everyday?   P&G wants to know the good, and the not so good.  What works for you and what doesn't.  This is your chance to be interactive with one of our favourite household product companies and also interactive with other consumers who know and love these great items.  

Recently, I took a few minutes to tap into P&G Everyday to connect with and share my thoughts on a few select products.  

Charmin Bathroom Tissue 
We are really picky about bathroom tissue in our home.  As a family of five, with a couple of those family members with digestive issues. (sorry if that is TMI) we need a bathroom tissue that not only is cost effective, but also one that does it's job well.  Charmin Ultra Strong is great for our family.  We love the 2 ply sheets that are soft and effective.  

I like that when you pick up a package of double rolls you are getting four packs of 4 rolls.  Just recently my daughter went on a trip to the Dominican Republic and had to take her her own toilet tissue - this was so convenient for her to travel with! 

Swiffer Duster 360
Swiffer products are my (absolute) favourite P&G products.  There isn't a Swiffer product which hasn't help to make my life more manageable.  The Duster 360 is absolutely no exception.  I adore it for helping me reach all that out-of-the-way dust that seems to be never ending in a cement plant town.  The handle extends and eliminates having to stand on step stools or pushing chairs around.   And dust clings to the duster, you can use it time and time again and it never fails to pick up dust, hair or what have you. 

Pantene Moisture Renewal Shampoo & Conditioner
This may age me a little, but, I can remember when Pantene came out as a hair care line.  It was affordable luxury for your hair - and, it still is today.  After a long, dry winter I was keen to get some moisture back into my heat-ravaged hair.  Pantene shampoo and conditioner does the job well and can be used as part of your daily routine, plus it smells great and lathers beautifully.   

There you have it.  Some of my thoughts on a few of my favourite P&G products.  We invite you to share your thoughts too.
