It’s the big 6-0 for Alberto VO5, which is pretty amazing! VO5 seems like such a staple to see at the stores that it’s hard to imagine a time when it didn’t exist. A brief history is that in 1955 Culver City, creator Alberto, developed VO5 hair conditioning treatment to keep Hollywood starlets’ hair looking healthy and beautiful under the bright Hollywood lights, as depicted here in this vintage TV commercial:
Since then, a number of VO5 products have been invented from shampoo’s and conditioners to Shine, Glow & Go Beauty Oil. All contain the 5 essential original ingredients which is how the name “VO5” came to be. (Pretty nifty trivia, huh?)
I was sent a bundle of products to review which included:
- Herbal Escapes Kiwi Lime shampoo
- Herbal Escapes Kiwi Lime conditioner
- VO5’s classic hot oil treatment
- Shine, Glow & Go Beauty Oil
My 9 year old daughter Delia has hair like her mama: A lion’s mane. So I decided to use these products to try to wrestle it into a sleek pony. It turns out, I didn’t have to do much “wrestling” at all. Used the products and then used a little of the Shine, Glow & Go Beauty Oil along with a round brush to blow dry it straight.
My opinion of the line is that it’s extremely affordable. The shampoo lathers really well, but I wish the formula for both the shampoo and conditioner was a little thicker and creamier. A little does not go a long way and you have to use quite a bit to make sure it softens your hair. But the line has been around for 60 years, so it’s obvious that it’s a classic and doing something right for people to love it so much!
Alberto VO5 has offered to give one Leapfrog and Lipgloss reader all the products shown above!
