Get knotted!

We've been using the Johnson & Johnson 'no more tangles' range for a month now, click on the video below to see what Bella and I think about it. 




Ok, you can't access Youtube at work? My accent is grating? Here's a brief rundown without the clip.

Firstly, I haven't done product reviews before because it's not something that was ever an aim. I don't have a   review policy or a mediakit.But when I was contacted by a company representing Johnson & Johnson, it seemed like a natural fit. I'm a Mum, I have a website/blog that's full of baby and kids products and, more importantly, our house is already full of J&J products. See below- this is just what I pulled out of Ashley's change table... there's also wipes,Junior shampoo and Strawberry detangling spray. 

The products I was sent to try were the 'no more tangles' shampoo, conditioner and detangling spray. The shampoo and detangling spray are 'no more tears' too! 

The shampoo and conditioner have more 'grownup' packaging and scent than the Junior products. The shampoo has a texture that reminded me of the shampoo my hairdresser uses.... it's not as lather-y as a lot of shampoos and felt really nice. 

A note on the shampoo (not the spray or conditioner)... as I mentioned in the videoclip.... here in Australia and several other countries there are small amounts of chemicals used which are banned in other countries. There's a link below for you to read about it and then another link with Johnson&Johnsons response, indicating that the levels are low and safe but Johnson&Johnson are working to remove those chemicals from all J&J products globally in response to pressure from consumers.

My favourite product is definitely the detangling spray. My hair is frizzy and dry and gross. If I'm in a rush or whatever, I've been spraying the detangling spray into my hair to eleviate the frizz and it's been working, yay, without making my hair oily or crunchy, double yay. I know I should fix the actual problem but this bandaid solution works nicely for now ;o) The lid also twists to lock (found out accidentally) so it doesnt accidentally spray everywhere in a drawer or when the kids get hold of it.

And... it works!! 

See below, a picture of Bella's unbrushed hair when she's woken up. I sprayed the hair, started from the bottom and brushed out the little tangles. There was a fairly large knot on one side (on the righthandside in the pic below) so I gave that a direct spritz, stuck the brush right into the knot and slowly combed downwards and it came loose.

 Another thing I love... the value for money. The other detangling spray is $3.33 per 100ml, this one is $2.37 per 100ml AND being a bigger size, you don't need to worry about replacing it as often! Also... see how it has no cap to lose? That's because of the twist-lock top I mentioned earlier.


So yes, I am very happy that I was made aware of these products and supplied with them to try out. I'll definitely be a continuing customer. 

Stay tuned for details of my giveaway.

Believe it or not, just by sitting down during this
bicep curl workout will actually add a degree of intensity.
Take a chest press for example; the main muscle worked is the chest, secondary maybe the
triceps. Preventing repetitive stress injuries through exercise will also help prevent this kind of problem on the
job.

I can't overstate how critical it is to maintain proper tire pressure for your car. Since on his days off we're blowing out sprinkler systems
for the winter (I am master of the sprinkler clocks, and can program nearly any style of clock available- yay me), we have access to a
giant, powerful air compressor that he hitches onto the back of his POS pickup while we drive around
town. Take the hanger and untwist it, or cut it,
so that it is just a straight rod.

They have had them on since, and haven't once tried to remove them. So you won't have
to stumble around in the middle of the night to turn
up or down the heater. Here, we will discuss only about the electric space heaters.

You would never dream of leaving something cooking on your
stove-top all day while you were at work, but the slow cooker enables
just that. Move any flammable objects away from the slow cooker.
