One quirky fact about me is my sincere love of good smelling hair, so when I was offered the fitting opportunity to try out the new Fresh Scent Technology Collection from Head & Shoulders I was excited for the experiment. Their revamped line offers their famous clean, dandruff free scalp guarantee with the added benefit of a water-activated fragrance boost. All of their shampoos and conditioners are color safe with a gentle, pH balanced formula which includes invigorating scents like Green AppleOcean Lift, or the more specifically targeted Smooth and Silky for frizz control, and Damage Rescue for repairing and reversing dull, dry locks.

received the Classic Clean scent which is similar to what I remember using when I was young, only it's now amplified with a potent fresh linen scent. I love how silky and clean my hair looks and feels and also how wonderful it smells all day long, even when layered with other styling products. The formula worked well for my naturally curly hair and maintained a proper balance, leaving it neither too stripped or overly moisturized. In the photo above I created my favorite, easy twist hairstyle by parting my wet hair to the side after washing and conditioning with the Head & Shoulders pair, then taking the front and braiding two half inch pieces together, each time gathering more at the base (similar to French style). 

I wanted to share their current sweepstakes for a chance to meet the vibrant face of Head & Shoulders Sofia Vergara at an upcoming advertising shoot. Her family as well as mine has been using the brand for years with consistent results and hair that is healthy from the source. The simple rules include following @HeadShoulders on Twitter and posting a picture of your gorgeous, flake-free hair with the tags #PartofOurFamily, #sweeps, and @HeadShoulders. You can enter until Monday, September 1st so snap and share as soon as you can to be eligible to win

Which scent or formula are you excited to try from the Fresh Scent Technology Collection?

And kid, you've got to love yourself. 
You've got wake up at four in the morning, brew black coffee, and stare at the birds drowning in the darkness of the dawn.
You've got to sit next to the man at the train station who's reading your favorite book and start a conversation.
You've got to come home after a bad day and burn your skin from a shower.
Then you've got to wash all your sheets until they smell of lemon detergent you bought for four dollars at the local grocery store.
You've got to stop taking everything so goddamn personally.
You are not the moon kissing the black sky.
You've got to compliment someone's crooked brows at an art fair and tell them that their eyes remind you of green swimming pools in mid July.
You've got to stop letting yourself get upset about things that won't matter in two years.
Sleep in on Saturday mornings and wake yourself up early on Sunday.
You've got to stop worrying about what you're going to tell her when she finds out.
You've got to stop over thinking why he stopped caring about you over six months ago.
You've got to stop asking everyone for their opinions. Fuck it. Love yourself, kiddo.
You've got to love yourself.
