Empties #001 : Hair Products

Welcome to my first ever empties post! This was actually something that was very weird for me to shoot..I felt so odd taking photos of things that I would typically throw away, but I do enjoy empties videos and posts because, since the person has used the whole product, they can usually make an educated decision on whether the product is worth it and if they would purchase again. So, lets dive in.


Mane 'n Tail Shampoo and Conditioner - This might be a bit odd for some of you if you have never heard of this brand, but yes, this is a shampoo and conditioner that can be used for horses AND humans! It's said that if you use this product it will help your hair grow a bit faster than it normally would, my hair grows pretty quickly as it is so I don't really notice much of a difference. However, I do really like these products because they feel like they're quite gentle! I might buy it once in awhile but it's not anything that I could rave about!


Salon Selectives 3 Minute Hair Therapy - I had never tried this brand and I didn't use this conditioner solely for a deep repair mask. I actually used it to mix and dilute some hair dye when I was playing around with a lot of color. Since I leave dye in my hair for around 3 hours I felt like I might as well do a deep repair mask while the dye is soaking in! It was nice and did make my hair soft. It was super cheap so I would probably repurchase if I was out and about and ran into it.

Aussie Aussome Volume - I featured this in a Current Favorites post last year and I said I really enjoyed it, which was true for the time being! However, the more I used it, the more I realized it was really terrible at keeping my hair in tact with humidity and other factors. It was best to keep my bangs in place but now that I've let my front bangs grow out, I really have no use for it anymore. I'm still looking for my perfect hairspray, so if any of you have recommendations, let me know!

SoftSheen-Carson Keratin Sealing Leave-in Conditioner - This product instantly caught my attention when I saw my mom using it. It was mostly the smell that I fell in love with. It smells like sandalwood, which I love! I asked her what she was using and I knew I had to have it! I really loved spraying it through my hair when it was damp, it would make my hair smell good and also help reduce tangles. I would definitely repurchase this!


Garnier Fructis Damage Eraser - I don't really have much to say about this product. It's just an average conditioner that you can get at any supermarket! It smells great, but I don't notice any "damage erasing" regardless, would I purchase again? Maybe. When I'm looking for shampoo/conditioner at a store I usually just pick whatever jumps out. So, nothing special about this certain conditioner but nothing bad about it either!

Clairol Hair Food Mask - This hair mask was sent to me by Influenster. I talked about it in my  Hair Food Moisture Mask review. I actually really loved this product! I thought it smelled delicious and worked great! I would leave it in after washing my hair for 30 minutes to an hour and then wash it out, my hair would always smell so good and feel very soft! I'm pretty sure you can purchase this brand at Target, I haven't tried the other products but I'm pretty eager to!


Manic Panic Enchanted Forest - I had this bottle of dying lying around for awhile. There was a time where I had about 5 or 6 bottles of dye that were full or slightly used that were just going to waste. So after I lightened my hair I thought I would have a little fun! This Enchanted Forest was the first green dye I had ever used. The only reason I gravitated towards using it was because I had used up the rest of my colors and they had all faded out. I didn't think I'd like it but I ended up falling in love! It was so incredibly pigmented and it looked so cool! I never thought I would have green hair and actually like it and a huge plus, it lasted longer than ANY of my other dyes! After 14 washes it was still very vivid! I am definitely going to repurchase this and more manic panic dyes!

Splat Lusty Lavender - I adore purple hair, so when I saw this at Walmart I picked it up on a complete whim. This dye was very messy, and very dark. Once I applied and eventually washed it out it gave a very dark and pigmented purple color. It was a little darker than I wanted but I knew it would fade into a lighter color, I just didn't know it would fade as fast as it did. This dye faded so drastically I don't see the point in having it...unless you only wash your hair once a week, then maybe you'd like it. I just don't want to spend money on a dye that fades and is splotchy after 1-2 washes. Maybe I had too high expectations but I don't think I'll buy splat again. ( I also tried the pink and had the same result.)

I hope you enjoyed reading about my used up hair products! I enjoyed making this post more than I realized I would. Maybe I will do more in the future! Let me know what you think in the comments below!

    1. I think it's just that my hair grows so fast anyway so I don't really notice. I do love the product regardless though!

  4. Really want to try that Mane n' Tail stuff. My hair's really thick so I think a bit of horsey treatment will do it good!
