Aveeno Nourish & Living Color Shampoo Giveaway

Well, we’re almost there – the end of summer

As an Aveeno/Recyclebank Ambassador I am able to gather some styling and hair tips from our friend, Celebrity Hairstylist, Patrick Melville to get you through the next few months!  Patrick gave us his tips on how to transition hair from summer to fall. By following these tips, you’re sure to be a stand-out beauty this coming season.

Patrick says:
“When going to the beach those final days of summer, apply any of the AVEENO® NOURISH+ conditioner throughout hair to protect hair from the UV rays. In addition, always bring a hat or scarf to cover hair from the sun.  Coming out of the pool or ocean, make sure to rinse hair well with fresh water and apply some NOURISH+ conditioner and comb evenly through the hair.  This will remove the chlorine or salt from the hair and put moisture back in.”

“After the hot summer, you want to cut off those beach/pool frizzy ends. Shampoo and Condition hair with AVEENO® NOURISH+ line to restore hair vitality and elasticity.  If you color your hair, it is time to go a little warmer with your color. Try using AVEENO® LIVING COLOR™ to help restore shine back into the hair that was lifted out from the UV rays during those summer months.”

“Now that we’ve finally beat the humidity, hair will be a little smoother with less texture and you will be adding more shine to your blowdry. Coming out of summer, I always feel hair length should be brought up the neckline a bit. This also helps rejuvenate the hair after those summer months.”

Now that’s some advice to follow!
If you have Amazon gift cards from Swagbucks purchase yours on Amazon for only $6.99 & eligible for FREE Shipping.  Otherwise you can find it at your local drug store or retailer and use the $2/1 Aveeno product coupon from Recycle Bank (only 75 points) for a great saving.

Aveeno NOURISH+ Shampoo and Conditioner line that Patrick is LOVING for the fall season.  Two Freebie Junkie Readers will win an Aveeno  shampoo and conditioner from the NOURISH+ Revitalize or NOURISH+ Volumize lines

Disclosure:  As an ambassador for Aveeno/Recycle Bank please note all opinions are of my own, others opinions may vary.

Stay away from the harsh stuff and use a good deep conditioner.

Barbara Mayes said:

To smooth out curly/frizzy locks, blow-dry with a large round brush and spin the brush while drying that portion of your hair. Clip other sections out of your way, until you are ready to do them too. Really makes my hair look shiny and healthy too!

I'm kinda challenged when it come to beauty tips. I'm lucky enough to not have to do things to my hair. I only product it when I'm trying to do something special. Otherwise I just scrunch & go.

If you blow dryer your hair or use a straightener, use a Heat Protection Spray to help protect your hair from damage.

blow drying leaves hair less frizzy

ericka coello said:

i brush my hair in the shower to massage the scalp and rinse it very well. for me, the hairbrush is better than using my nails.

JC said:

A bit of olive oil goes a long way to smooth hairs.

I haven't set foot in a salon in 18 months and my hair look better than ever. No color, no styling products, no curling iron or flat iron. Let nature take care of it.

My best hair tip is to accentuate what you have!! If you have curly hair don't try and make it straight just make it the best curly you can, and vice versa!

Erin said:

Do not over color hair! My friend dyes hers all the time, and now it's brittle like straw.

Unknown said:

Don't wash your hair every day - your hair will be less dry and your color won't wash out so quickly

Jessica said:

My best hair tip is to use a straightening iron as little as possible. It ruins your hair! Try blow drying as straight as you can and finishing off with the iron.

I always use the shampoos that say they repair split ends and it makes my hair stay good longer!

Use dry shampoo when you don't have time to wash your hair. It gets rid of the oil and it looks great. My newest find!

Unknown said:

I wish I had one, I have bad hair days almost all the time, I just put it up and back now

BethElderton said:

I have fine, straight hair. A good tip is to lift the hair with a brush and blow dry the roots while lifted. It adds some body.

My best tip is to keep up on trims to cut back on split ends.

Darcie K. said:

When you don't have time to wash your hair, use a little bit of baby powder and brush out.

Laura said:

Use protein treatments (not the hot oil type) to seal the hair cuticle. Your hair won't keep moisture if the cuticle isn't good.

Always make sure to thoroughly rinse your hair after shampooing and conditioning. Left over shampoo and conditioner builds up on hair making it greasy and unmanageable.

Thanks for the great giveaway. ~Pauline

Washing your hair daily "washes away" essential oils and nutrients that your hair needs. I prefer every other day, and make sure you massage your scalp when you do to stimulate healthy hair follicles. I absolutely love Aveeno, but I can only wish the prize is cheaper. Hope to win this give away ^-^ God bless!!1

The Flat Irons make your hair look shiny and leaves your hair feeling really soft and also straightens out any creases in your hair from pulling it up.

My best hair tip is to use a really good conditioner and stay away from those that the first ingredient is alcohol! :)

My dermatologist said wash your hair every other day to avoid drying out your scalp.

Marissa, Brianna, Benny, & Tara said:

Don't wash your hair every day. I don't follow this, however.

Keep your ingredients natural. Soaps strip away nature's protective barriers, while plant oils clean and keep you skin's natural pH.

Unknown said:

Comb it in the shower, with the conditioner in it!

msjamesteagall said:

Overwashing your hair is horrible for it. It ruins your cuticles. For this reason, I wash my hair every 2-3 days so that it remains super healthy :)

Before getting out of shower, rinse hair with cold water to seal the cuticle to make hair shiney!

A dab of leave in conditioner goes a long way at smoothing out the frizzies, and leaves your hair smelling yummy.

Susan Bates said:

use white vinegar in your hair for itchy scalp OR if hair dye breaks you out!!

Julie M said:

i wash my long hair 1 or 2 times per week, don't use a hot source and it growth very fast !

ETowns said:

Treat it with care as you would your body. Coconut conditioners and oil will bring out the brilliance and softness.

Michelle Sharma said:

My best hair tip is try not to use a blowdryer if you have curly hair.

LiliumHigh said:

I can totally agree with a lot of these tips, one thing that I do...I start off with washing in hot/warm water and after conditioning I rinse with cold water so it keeps that extra moisture in.

Katie said:

Buy the right shamppo and conditioner for your hair type

Good conditioner is a must,

Angela W said:

I use a spray on/leave in conditioner when I spend alot of time outside in the sun.

keeley said:

go a day here and there without washing your hair, the natural oils in your hair will moisturize it if you have dry hair.

Jess said:

Wash your hair first when you get in the shower. Apply conditioner and let it sit while you are washing your body, shaving etc. Rinse the conditioner out last. Hair will come out super soft and tangle free.

JessGratz said:

Massage your scalp as you wash your hair. Spend a little more on a good conditioner.

Unknown said:

Once every three months (or monthly, for really dry hair), massage two tablespoons (a big handful) of coconut oil into your scalps, rubbing it into your hair to the tips. Leave overnight (or for at least an hour), then rinse with hot water and wash as normal.

My tip: Wash your hair every other day. Washing it every day dries it out, and if your hair is colored, takes the color away quicker too.
