Dancing Pet Best Groomer’s Pet Shampoo Review and Giveaway

First of all, I need to wish Sophia a very happy “Gotcha Day”.  Sophia has been with us for a year now, and I have to say that she has changed so much in that time.

Sophia 2014When Sophia came into our home, we right away had some issues that we knew we were going to have some trouble with.  For one, she was not potty trained.  Maltese are hard to potty train anyway, but Sophia had an addition problem; she was already 2 1/2 years old.

Sophia was also very very afraid of grass and dirt.  We right away knew that she was not going to be the one digging in the yard, but it also made it very challenging for potty training.  It took Michael and I weeks of picking her up and placing her in the grass or gently leading her into the grass to get finally get Sophia to walk unassisted into the grass by herself.

IMG_0775 IMG_6612Another problem we had was, the previous owners I guess didn’t know what they were getting into when they bought Sophia, and the poor dog’s hair was matted down to her skin in places.  Her first haircut I gave her, she was awesome.  I had to cut the hair all the way down, and she never once complained.

Over the past year, she has obviously overcome that fear of grass (dirt is a whole other issue), we are constantly working on getting her to pee and poo outside.  She is doing so much better, but there are still days where she has accidents inside, so we have just learned to watch where we walk and the best ways to clean up the mess.

I made a promise to Sophia after that first grooming, that I would never let her get that matted again.  I try to completely shave her every three of four months, but in between that those total cuts, I use detangling shampoo.

Dancing Pet Review

Recently, I’ve been using the Dancing Pet Best Groomer’s Pet Shampoo. It’s great for dogs that are prone to tangles and dry skin.  Which is definitely Sophia.

I love this shampoo because it’s an all Natural Formula – no harsh chemicals, there is no oatmeal to irritate – only a grain-free alternative to soothe, no alcohol to dry or damage skin, no tea tree oil to sting or leave greasy residue, no hydrocortisone to break down the skin, no toxic stuff like MEA’s or DEA’s, it’s eco-friendly, all plant-based naturally-derived ingredients, and the biggy Doesn’t Deactivate Topical Flea Treatments.

I also love the the Dancing Pet shampoo because it leaves Sophia so soft, fluffy, and makes her hair super white. It also smells great.  The shampoo has a very fruity smell, and deodorizes great, there was no “wet dog” smell after her baths.

Overall, I love this shampoo, and I would recommend it to anyone who has a dog with long hair.  If you are interested in purchasing a bottle for your dog, you can find it on Amazon here.

Argan Oil – 100% Pure & USDA Organic Review

argan oil

I’ve been reading and hearing a lot about the benefits of argan oil.  I figured it would be another one of the passing trends, but when I kept hearing about it, I wanted to try it for myself.

First of all, it’s always nice to know what the product is and where it comes from.  Argan oil comes from the seeds of the argan tree in Morocco.  It is pressed into an oil, and traditionally has been used in foods and to treat skin problems in that culture.  And I have to tell you something, I think they are on to something.

I have been using the GoPure Argan oil for a few weeks now on my hair.  I was having some real problems with dry hair with split ends.  To use, I just take a quarter size amount in my hand and massage into my hair, I wait about 5-10 min and rinse.  I’ve read that if you leave the oil in loger, the benefits are greater, but I’ve really seen a difference in the amount of time I’ve been using it.

My Nonna (grandmother), also helped me out with this review.  She has been using the GoPure Argan oil on her hands, arms, and face as like a sort of lotion.  She reports that she has noticed that her skin has not been as dry, and looks and feels more hydrated.

Overall, I think I will keep using the GoPure Argan oil on my hair.  I am really loving how it’s working for my needs.  As for my Nonna.  She loves the Argan oil too, and has been asking me if I can get her some more (hahaha I think she is addicted to it). We both love that it is all natural and free of any dyes and chemicals.

If you are interested in purchasing some GoPure Argan oil, you can find it on it on Amazon (PRIME!!!) or the GoPure Naturals website.  My bottle was sent via Amazon, and I had no problems with it.  The box was very sturdy and arrived right on time.

 

 

I have to apologize.  I have photos of my hair after I started using it, but my computer is pitching a fit tonight.  So, when it decides to act like an adult, I’ll upload the photos. Disclaimer

Hair Symphony Detangling and Soft Hair Brushes with Cosmetics Bag

21043_252378909412_49918_n

When I was a kid, I was very very “tinder” headed.  I hated to have my hair brushed by anything other than my hair brush, which was one of those slicker hair brushes that don’t really brush you hair or get the tangles out.  I soon learned that if I wanted my hair long like I wanted, I was going to have to deal with the pain of brushing out my hair.

Detangling and Soft Hair Brushes with Cosmetics Bag Review

But, what if it didn’t have to be that way?  I know my daughter wants to keep her hair long.  So last year I found a detangling brush on Amazon, and instantly fell in love.  These brushes are so easy to use, and I know that I have reviewed another detangling hair brush in the past. When I saw that Hair Symphony was looking for people to write reviews, I wanted to review another brush of this style, so that Goose could help me demonstrate how easy the brush is to use.

Detangling and Soft Hair Brushes with CosmeticsBag ReviewYou may ask yourself, what is so special about the Hair Symphony detangling brush, aren’t they all the same?  Well, here is how it is different…

The pink detangling brush is specially designed by European top engineers alongside beauty experts with years of experience in hair care.

With its smooth rounded tip bristles it manages to successfully detangle any type of hair. It will not be a problem for either short or long, thick or thin, straight or curly hair. The alternate heights of the pins and the pattern at which they are placed work to glide through any tangles easily and without any pain. Don’t be fooled by the “cheap” imitations you may find online. Quality is essential for this brush to actually work. We have done several tests for the endurance and elasticity of the pins, and always updated the composition of the plastics used

Here is Goose showing how easy the Hair Symphony detangling brush is to use.

The Hair Symphony soft styling hair brush is really great too.  I love how the handle is nice and sturdy, and fits my hand really well.  I tend to gravitate toward this brush more than the detangling one, but they are both great!
