SolReya Spa Wrap Review & Giveaway (ends 6/22)

SolReya Spa Wrap

Treat yourself to the luxury of a spa experience in the comfort of your own home with the SolReya Spa Wrap. If you wrap your hair with a bulky towel after you wash your hair, then you will love the SolReya Hair Wrap. This luxurious wrap is made of 100% richly textured cotton. The design provides full head and hair coverage for most hair lengths and fits most head shapes and sizes.

Solreya
I received a wrap so that I could try it out and I love it. It’s super soft, absorbent and it’s light weight too. It’s also machine washable. While it’s made of 100% cotton, it could shrink a little, but I haven’t noticed much shrinkage on mine. It’s still as soft and comfy as the first time I used it.

Solreya2

It features button fasteners to keep it in place. It’s seriously comfortable. So much so, that I end up leaving it on for a bit longer than I would a towel. My little girl thinks it’s really neat and asks to use it when I wash her hair. With enough twists, it fits on her head too.

Buy it: The SolReya Wrap is made to be used by the finest spas and hotels in the world, but you can get one of your own for $25. You can call in your order at  208-890-3611 or go here and fill out the contact form to have someone contact you. Be sure to mention that you saw the product on Sweet Deals 4 Moms blog.

Win it: One of you will win a luxurious SolReya hair wrap of your own. Please enter through the Rafflecopter below. It may take 30 seconds or more to enter.

Madison Reed At Home Hair Color Review

Screen Shot 2014-06-03 at 1.39.05 PM

I have always been one to dye my hair at home. It’s not hard and the price is right. Of course there are brands that are better than others as far as odor, coverage and color tones are concerned, so it’s important to me to not just go with the cheapest box I can find. I have been known to experiment with different brands to find the one that is my favorite and this time I decided to give Madison Reed a try.

“Madison Reed is revolutionizing every aspect of the at-home hair color experience. Madison Reed starts with ammonia- and resorcinol-free professional grade products that are used in salons and delivers them to your door. Still afraid to color your hair at home? They’ve developed entirely new ways of finding your perfect permanent hair color – choose from an online color advisor, mobile app, live web chat, digital photo consultation or speak to a trained colorist on the phone. All of this is what makes the Madison Reed “in-home” coloring experience superior to the traditional way of coloring your hair at home. Madison Reed is turning quite a few heads in the beauty world, too – take a look at what Vogue.com had to say about them.”



The Madison Reed experience includes:

  • Expert Advice: Get free professional consultations from the experts on our Color Crew.
  • Salon-Quality Results: Our multi-tone formula is ammonia-free and creates dynamic, natural shades for sophisticated color at home.

  • Convenient delivery: Set up auto-delivery and have our hair color shipped when and where you want.

Here is the hair color kit I received. It’s a bit more “deluxe” that what you would get at your local store. The gloves are stronger (comes with 2 pairs) and it also comes with a hair cap, which you don’t normally get with your box kits from the store. A good sized shampoo and conditioner are also included. The smell was not strong which is usually what turns me away from certain brands.

Here are my before and after shots:

before
Before: I don’t know if you can see it well, but I had some gray and roots showing. The color was a dark reddish brown.

after
After: Used Milano Brown – 5NAC. As you can see there are no roots, no gray, a darker color brown which is a bit more natural looking. It gave me very good coverage. I love it.
