ESALON MATCH UP JAN 2016 - items 1

Get Heated Repair Thermal Protection Mist – 4 fl oz, value: $14

I liked this a lot! I’m big on heat protection for my hair. I used only this right after towel drying, and it seemed to even help with detangling as I combed, which I was really glad for.

Paddle Brush – value: $15

I don’t know about you but the brush I was currently using before getting this was one I had been using for, I don’t know, more than a few years. I’m happy with this brush – the red body feels grippy.

Devoted to Hue Color Enhancing Mask in Golden – value: $19

This mask is supposed to help revitalize your hair color, and comes in different colors. This golden is supposed to be good for blondes and brunettes, so I grabbed it to help between dyes. Honestly, I didn’t really see much of a difference, so I’m glad I didn’t pay full price for this.

Verdict: I’m happy with this month’s match-up, but one item just wasn’t a hit. I liked the other items though, so it works out okay. I’m already looking forward to picking my next box.
