Valentine's Day is a holiday many of us look forward to. It's fun and a great reminder to show the special friends and family in our lives just how much we care! 

Although my husband and I don't do a lot on Valentine's Day, we still try to make it special whether we go out or stay in. As you prepare yourself for your date night you can count on Alberto VO5, an iconic hair care brand, to help you look and feel fabulous without breaking the bank. 


Praised by All You, Allure and SELF, VO5's proprietary Five Essential Vitamins needed for salon beautiful hair. I was excited to learn about this line and happy when I found out I was going to review the following salon series products:

  • VO5 Hot Oil Treatment
  • VO5 Salon Series Hydrate + Nourish Shampoo and Conditioner
  • VO5 Salon Series Perfect Hold Hair Spray
  • VO5 Salon Series Simply Stunning Leave-In Conditioner


I enjoy finding new shampoos and conditioners to try. The first thing I noticed about the VO5 Salon Series Hydrate + Nourish Shampoo and Conditioner is that they smell amazing! Love it!

My hair has been extremely dry this time of year, so I was happy to find that it left my hair feeling soft and healthy! It looks and feels great.

There are some days I need more conditioning, so I was looking forward to trying the VO5 Salon Series Simply Stunning Leave-In Conditioner as well!

It leaves my hair feeling silky and soft after using it, even when I'm using my hair dryer and straightener! This protective conditioner saturates hair with moisture and vitamin enriched formulas to help protect hair from heat. It also helps to strengthen hair against breakage which I struggle with often as well. I'm really happy to have this product on hand and use it more as time goes on.

I don't style my hair ever day, but when I'm going out with my hubby I always try to do something with it. I find that my hair has extra static this time of year so a little hairspray is always nice. It also helps my short hair stay in place. 

The VO5 Salon Series Perfect Hold Hair Spray has worked great for my needs. It's a great finishing product for any style and holds a long time as well. I haven't noticed stickiness like I often do with my other hairspray so that has been great as well!

I haven't tried the Hot Oil Treatment yet, but am excited to! It's supposed to moisturize and condition hair from roots to ends, helping restore shine, strength and silky softness. This is exactly what my hair needs time of year!

Overall I've been really impressed with the VO5 products and would recommend them to others looking for quality hair products that are affordable. 

VO5 also shared a fun how-to for a braided knot, a classic but chic style perfect for a romantic night.

The Braided Top Knot

1. Gather hair into a ponytail and secure with an elastic at the crown of your head. 
2. Take pony tail and braid using braid-type of your choice (3 strand, fishtail, rope, etc) and secure end with elastic.
3. Grab braid and wrap it around to create a knot formation. Secure with 3-4 hairpins. Use VO5's Series Perfect Hold Hairspray.
