I am, deep down, a short-hair type of girl. Most of my life has been spent with hair chin-length or shorter. Until I got it into my head around my 30th birthday (milestones always spark change, don’t they?) that I wanted long, flowy, mermaid hair. A couple years (and a couple of ill-fated haircuts later) and here I am.
The proud owner of a head full of hair that falls to the middle of my back.
And no idea what to do with it.
I do know that a good shampoo is a must for keeping hair healthy and shiny and that the Dove Pure Care Dry Oil Collection delivers with shampoo, conditioner, and dry oil treatment that makes your hair 5x silkier after just one wash. I loved the mellow scent and that you all the benefits of an oil treatment without the greasy feel. Even the nourishing treatment, with a blend of African Macadamia oil and Coconut oil, absorbed quickly deep into my hair without weighing it down or leaving it unstyleable.
Because I’m still mastering the “Pinterest braid,” beachy waves take minimal effort and are my go-to style — they’re everybody’s go-to style right now. Quickly wrap sections of hair around the barrel of a hot curling iron (I use a 2-inch and don’t use the prong!) and let it naturally drop free. When you’ve curled all your hair, give it a quick shake, and you’re good to go! The less perfect and more tousled the curls look, the better!
Dove is challenging women to take the “Dove Silky Hair Dare” now through December 31. Try the Dove Advanced Hair Series Pure Care Dry Oil System and if you are not completely satisfied, Dove will refund your purchase (from 9/21-10/31). You’ve got nothing to lose but a good hair day!
