This is a compensated review from BlogHer and Pantene Full & Thick
Although my daughter did recently tell me that 50 is the new 40 - making 40 the new 30 - I'm still not real comfortable with the idea of not being a spring chicken. I'm doing some things to combat it, trying to make lifestyle changes to make the process less tiring, and some things to make it less noticeable; what I'm not really doing is anything to reverse the signs of aging...except when it comes to my hair.
I get that grey hair can be colored (which I'm not doing yet) and I'm still ticked off that I can have pimples and grey hair at the same time; what I wasn't ready for is the other things aging & hypothyroidism have done to my hair.
I have always had a full head of fine hair. Fine hair I could deal with as long as it looked good, had a nice texture and was manageable. Never the master of my hair I have always had "help" along the way from various products, friends and more than occasional stylist intervention. Sure, I have had more than my fair share of bad hair days so I was certain that as I aged the cosmos would balance themselves out and I would be one of those really lucky people whose hair got better with age. I was, quite apparently, wrong.
Over the last year things have changed; my fine hair has gone through a texture change, it is not naturally lustrous anymore, it has thinned, and there are these wild looking wiry grey hairs popping out everywhere. The hardest things to take have been the changes in texture and the thinning so when I was approached by Pantene to try their Full & Thick Shampoo and Conditioner I was immediately on board.... and it's working.
Sure, I still have those wiry grey hairs popping out here and there, but I really feel like my hair has a better texture, I know for a fact that the thinning has slowed considerably, and I might even refrain from calling my hair fine for the first time ever.
After just 2 weeks of use - I'm sold.
So - I bet you're wondering about that contest I may have mentioned up there....

I don't suppose it's fair that I demand you tell me about your worst hair day without going first....I have so many to choose from.....the poodle perm in high school comes immediately to mind (when I was hoping for one of those really neat perms that were all the rage in the 80's)...I'll go more recent....something fresher....
Eleven years ago my company decided to make some major changes and, as part of the changes, every employee was to have new head shot taken and be part of the great big company photo. Given my history of bad photos I was paralyzed with fear and rightfully so. as the details of this photo shoot unfolded.
The morning of the big shoot I spent a lot of time and used a lot of "product" in hopes of taming and keeping calm my hair in the overwhelming July humidity. Knowing I would be outside for only minutes (from house to car and from car to office) wasn't comforting, my hair only needed seconds to stage a rebellion.
I went heavier than I typically would with products and I sprayed my hair within an inch of it's life (my apologies to the ozone I had no idea). I dressed carefully, even requiring assistance to get my sweater over my head without disturbing the hair that had taken an hour to shellac, and braved the elements.
The first phase of my trip wasn't too bad, the humidity was shockingly high but my hair managed to stay calm and I appeared well kept. I know because I checked my hair and make-up obsessively as I navigated through heavy traffic. During the drive I began to sweat from nerves and anxiety over my hair....so I turned the A/C on full blast and pointed all the vents directly at my fact to reduce the chance of my make-up running down my face.
And then the worst thing ever happened; it started to rain and I had left my umbrella at home.
Despite my usual "no running" policy I ran from my car to the office door, but all my effort was futile. I arrived looking like a drowned rat and had no hope of restoring what had been. I tried to comb out my hair in an attempt to look somewhat presentable but all of the product I had used that morning began to reacting against each other and started making these little white balls of goo all over in my hair, not even a ponytail made things okay.
The look was so awful HR offered to reschedule my head shot for a different day - but the big company photo, well that lives on.
Fortunately I won't be having these kinds of hair days anymore, all I have to do is figure out why I keep getting pimples... I bet it can be blamed on stress from the teenagers.
