I love to experiment with different hair colors and hairstyles and when you add on using tools like curling irons to color treated hair, it's easy for my fine hair to get damaged and quickly! I'm so excited to be partnering with Dove Hair to experience the quality of their hair care products! I've been an avid user of all Dove's products since I was nine years old and my love for Dove was passed down to me from my very own grandmother and mother!
Color treating my hair goes back to the age of sixteen (going on eighteen years now, wow!) when I got accepted into our high school's cosmetology program. It was a two year program that offered me the opportunity to learn, train, gain school credits and the cosmetology hours I needed to take the state cosmetology exam upon graduating high school. It was an amazing opportunity that I couldn't pass up, and always loved beauty and hair (it's always been a passion of mine even as a little girl). I've gone from red, blonde, brown, black and purple hair and the list goes on! And because I had experience with colors and developers, I very rarely went to a salon to color my own hair (I always colored it myself).
I took a break from color treating my hair from the age of 30 until 32. But over the last couple of years I noticed that the grays in my hair (and my eyebrows, EW) have sprung up so much that I had to start coloring my hair again. Last year I tried to color AND highlight my hair (ombre style) and although it was gorgeous the first few weeks, my hair started getting really brittle and the split ends got to be so bad that I had no choice but to cut off four inches of my long hair. My hair is now medium in length, but I'm super paranoid about the damage treating and styling my hair causes.
The NEW Dove Regenerative Nourishment collection helps to repair the damage of styles, color and treatments of the past to leave your hair looking and feeling it’s very best. I needed that and I trust Dove Hair more than any other store brand so I gave it a try and it's given me my confidence back! I had forgotten how soft and shiny my hair used to be until I started using the Dove Regenerative Nourishment collection! If you have brittle, dry hair – you know exactly what I mean! It's a feeling of a lack of moisture, and my hair looked so lifeless and bland. The reason I color treated my hair was to give it dimension and to cover my grays but the shine and luster weren't there. Using these products from Dove Hair put some life back into the lackluster of my hair and it smells amazing!
You're probably thinking – “I'm a mom on-the-go, I don't have time to treat my hair!” It's okay, because I too am constantly running through the busyness of mom life and I understand how you feel. I have the perfect hair care regimen for you that helps you treat and style your hair in under 20-minutes! Yes, 20-minutes!
Here's my beauty care regimen for the busy mom:
3-minutes to wash my body using a loofah sponge and body wash
2-minutes to do a quick shave (only for areas visible to the public, c'mon now you know you do this too)
5-minutes to shampoo and condition my hair using the Dove Hair Regenerative Nourishment Shampoo and Conditioner
*Shampoo by applying to wet hair, massage into scalp and rinse.
*Condition by applying to mid shaft to ends of freshly washed hair and rise.
10-minutes to prep and style:
2-minutes to pat body and hair dry (don't rub your sking, it will dry out your skin)
2-minutes to apply the Dove Hair Regenerative Nourishment Serum-In-Oil to damp hair.
*On clean, damp hair, spread 3 to 4 pumps of Serum-In-Oil between your hands and apply (avoid applying directly to roots)
5-minutes to blow dry hair and brush
1-minute to smooth hair with hairspray or gel
Ta-da! That's it – not bad, right? Now of course, if you find yourself dilly-dallying in the shower then it will take a lot longer. And if you decide you'd like to style your hair way, well, that'll take you longer too. So be sure to shower and style with purpose and strategy! Haha!
Dove Hair hopes you will celebrate and remember every cut, color, style and transformation fondly – without having to fear hair damage. And now you can have the confidence to keep transforming your hair in the ways that make you feel your most beautiful using Dove Regenerative Nourishment Collection for perfectly nourished hair that’s 100% visibly damage free.
Next time you are at Target, grab the new Dove Hair Regenerative Nourishment Shampoo, Conditioner and Serum in Oil. Your hair will thank you!
