The Shampoo That Changed My Life

I’ve been known to be a bit of a drama queen, but when I say that something has changed my life, I mean it. Case in point: TiVo. My husband. Uggs. Trader Joe’s. A merino wool sweater/wrap thingy that looks really chic but feels like I’m wearing an Snuggie. And, this Kiehl’s Rice & Wheat Volumizing Shampoo:

Let’s just look at it for a moment. So pretty.

I know I speak for many of you when I say that finding volumizing products that actually work is nothing short of a miracle. Although I recently fell in love with Living Proof Full, I hadn’t yet found a shampoo that plumped AND smoothed my strands without weighing them down—no small feat I realize, but really? With all of the beauty products on the market, I have to search for a good SHAMPOO? I shudder to think how many I’ve tried only once before relegating to the guest bathroom. But after three consecutive good hair days (read: full, thick, manageable) of using this golden-hued elixir, I knew I had something. The secret ingredients: HONEY for hydrating, and WHEAT & RICE PROTEINS for body. And the scent! Fresh roses. There’s also a conditioner, which pretty much means I’m calling off the dogs.

    ABOUT BETS
    Born and raised in Minnesota by surprisingly low-maintenance parents, beauty writer and lifestyle editor Elizabeth Dehn (aka Bets) spent her awkward years buying Mood lipstick and whipping up DIY face masks before founding Beauty Bets in 2009 as a way to share candid product reviews and real beauty advice for smart women everywhere. When she’s not test-driving the latest beauty treatment (bee venom facial, anyone?) or serving as the beauty editor for Mpls. St. Paul Magazine and ClementineDaily.com, Elizabeth can be spotted running the Minneapolis Lakes with her white lab, Molly Thomas, or sipping champagne on a killer patio. Pass the sunscreen.
