Pamper Your Hair with the Alberto VO5 Salon Series Line {Review & Giveaway}

Alberto VO5 logo
With all that moms do day in and day out, I'm pretty sure that there should be more than one Mother's Day per calendar year. Or at least we could add in a few more (e.g. SuperMom Day, HeroMom Day, etc) so that she can be celebrated for the continuous way that she takes care of her family. Who's with me?

Being as there aren't too many moms that sit around enjoying hours of free time to pamper themselves, a great way to spend the holiday this year is to give Mom (or yourself) a few minutes to relax and rejuvenate.

Plus, with the new Salon Series from Alberto VO5, in that short amount of time, she can be back to performing her SuperMom duties, but with hair that shines and is silky soft!

Alberto VO5 Salon Series

Alberto VO5 (VO5 stands for 5 Vitamin Oils) began as a conditioning hairdressing created by a chemist and hairdresser, Alberto, in California. After being purchased by Leonard Lavin in 1955, VO5 moved to Chicago where it was expanded into a full range of haircare products.

Alberto VO5's newest collection, the Salon Series line, still contains VO5's proprietary Five Essential Vitamins, but is now also formulated with 11 Essential Oils to penetrate your hair from roots-to-ends for salon beautiful hair... at an affordable price.

The 11 Essential Oils include:
  • Sweet Almond — moisturizes to keep hair healthy.
  • Kiwi — highly cleansing and removes impurities within hair.
  • Marigold — highly cleansing and nourishing to help keep hair silky and smooth.
  • Wheat Protein — penetrates hair easily and helps create stronger hair.
  • Aloe Vera Juice — excellent moisturizing properties help keep hair healthy.
  • Quinoa — packed with amino acids, vitamins and minerals to help create stronger hair.
  • Honey — a natural hair moisturizer that keeps hair healthy and supple.
  • Red Algae Extract — a natural hair conditioner for fuller hair.
  • Papaya — rich in proteins and vitamins essential for hair growth.
  • Broccoli Seed Extract — imparts shine and gloss for full, thick hair with lots of body.
  • Soy Protein — penetrates and helps create stronger hair.
With four different Shampoo and Conditioner options (Hydrate + Nourish, Smooth + Sleek, Full Body + Shine, and Color Shield + Radiance) and an array of hair repair and styling products, you simply focus on what help your own hair needs the most and go from there.

Considering that I have spent years trying to tame and smooth my hair so that it can remotely resemble how frizz-free it looks when I leave the salon, I was more than ready to put the Alberto VO5 Salon Series to the test to see what it could do for me.

Alberto VO5 Salon Series review

Beginning with the VO5 Salon Series Smooth + Sleek Shampoo and Conditioner, I was happy right away with the gentle, sweet scent of each and the way that my hair felt shiny and manageable when I stepped out of the shower.

VO5 shampoo and conditionerWhile I have tried shampoos and conditioners in the past that have claimed to perform miracles when it comes to reducing frizz, I was happy to see that these bottles indeed lived up to their claims. Their smoothing complex took my unruly hair and managed to calm it down to lay more sleek than with my previous hair care.

Following the cleansing and conditioning, I'm always on the lookout for great styling products that will fight the frizzies from returning — and the Anti-Frizz & Shine Styling Cream and Simply Stunning Leave-In Conditioner have done just that!

Alberto VO5 styling products
Each of these lightweight, sweet-smelling creams are easy to use (simply smooth a dollop through your hair from roots to tips) and manage to nourish and protect while reducing frizz and boosting shine. What more could I ask for?

I have tried other products that, once my hair is fully dry, seem to disappear and let my locks go wild, but the VO5 Salon Series have proven that they can hold all day, which is great!

Whether you have tight ringlets, a soft wave or a stick straight bob, Alberto VO5 Salon Series products will help give you a healthy, frizz-free, easy-to-manage hair lifestyle. Breathe life into anything from healthy, strong locks to dry, damaged or limp hair with this interchangeable selection of options that can address your hair's specific needs.

Even better, instead of breaking the bank or having to make continual trips to the salon, these high quality products can provide beautiful, manageable hair in an extremely affordable way. All of the shampoos,  conditioners and Perfect Hold Styling Products (hairsprays, mousse and gel) retail for only $2.49, the Anti-Frizz & Shine Styling Cream and Simply Stunning Leave-In Conditioner for $3.99 and the Total Recovery Deep Conditioning Hair Mask for $5.49.
