Giveaway: Head & Shoulders Gift Basket

by Migdalia Rivera

hs-giveaway-basketI recently received the basket shown on the left. It contained Head & Shoulders Dry Scalp Care Shampoo and Conditioner, a Conair water resistant shower radio, a Turbine Twist hair towel, a hairbrush, an EarthTherapeutics Back Brush, a rubber duckie and a reusable basket. I loved it, especially since I’m a huge fan of Head & Shoulders!

While growing up  in Puerto Rico, I used mayonnaise to soothe my dry and itchy scalp. It was purported to leave your hair moisturized and shiny. Yet I always felt as though everyone could smell the mayonaise I had just used! Definitely not the smell a teen girl wanted to have in High School!

Thankfully, as I’ve grown I’ve realized that I can use other products on my hair to relieve a  dry and itchy scalp. Head & Shoulders is one of the products we use in my home. It takes away the caspa / dandruff and leaves my hair shiny. So now when I swing my hair from side to side, men can’t help but notice mi cabello / my hair and not because of any flaky dandruff either! ;)

I’m excited to say that one Latinalicious reader will be able to put Head & Shoulders to the test by winning the same basket that I received! I’m sure after you receive it you’ll agree with “Head & Shoulders’ 7 Scalp and Hair Benefits”  (shown below).

  • fights dryness
  • calms itch
  • relieves irritation
  • reduces redness
  • controls oiliness
  • removes flakes
  • leaves hair beautiful

Ready to have beautiful, shiny, flakeless hair? Read on!



Look over the Head & Shoulders videos found HERE  and tell me which hair myth you previously believed. I used to believe using mayonaise would help dryness but now know better! Note: You have the option of viewing the video in English or Spanish.

I used to believe the tomato juice rumor too. Guess that one’s a big lie.

i believed that applying tomato juice gave you beautiful hair. I guess applying watercrest isn’t true either?
