Beautiful Hair and a HUGE Giveaway

One thing you have never heard me say is that I like my hair.  I don't really complain about it, because it could be worse (and, trust me, it has been -- read MAJOR bangs, bleach blonde/green, etc. etc.); but, frankly, it just isn't good hair.  It is thin and coarse - really, who even knew that was possible?  It doesn't grow past my shoulders - true story.  And, it totally has a mind of it's own when it comes to "behavior."  I dream of perfectly straight or awesomely "I-just-woke-up-this-way" curls; but, instead I usually get frizz and a major fifties house-wife flip (unintentional, I assure you). Add the heat and humidity of summers in the south, years of blow-dryer and straightener overuse, and now a baby (i.e. no time for style and an occassional dollop of food/slobber) to the equation and my hair is pretty much a HOT MESS by this time of year.

Naturally, one of my great quests in life is to find a hair product to make me look like a celebrity.  ;)  (Of course, I'd settle for simply soft, smooth, and shiny hair too!)

Enter Dove's new line of intensive repair conditioners.

When I found out about the opportunity to review one of their products, I JUMPED at it.  I have been a loyal Dove-brand user for literally my whole life.  I vividly remember when they first came out with deodorant (I can barely recall a time before my underarms smelled like cucumber-melon) and then, later, hair care products.  Seriously, my shower (and my life) is FILLED with the little blue bird on crisp white bottles.

And, just as I suspected, Dove's Intensive Repair Conditioner did not disappoint.

After using the product with my normal shampoo for the last two weeks; I really can see a noticable difference.  Ya'll, I think my hair just might be HEALING.  Me?  With healthy silky hair?!?!  It is a dream come true!

I'm being serious.  I LOVE my new conditioner.  It doesn't require extra steps (or precious extra time), I just squirt about a quarter-sized amount into my hand and rub it through my hair in the shower.  Then, I go about my business (you know, showering) and rinse with cool(ish) water after about three minutes.   It smells wonderful - fresh and clean, but not over the top; the price can't be beat, and IT WORKS.  My hair is looking better right now than it has in YEARS - and that's despite the whole messy/exhausting one-year-old thing.

Dove just doesn't mess around. Their fancy-schmancy technology soaks deep into your strands to rebind and strengthen the damaged proteins.  Plus, their moisture-serum seals cuticles and actually REPAIRS your poor, helpless hair. (If you like this technical stuff, visit www.dovehair.com for more details.)  But, in a nut shell, the end result after 2+ weeks of using Dove Intensive Repair Conditioner is  hair that I can actually run my fingers through AND that still looks good after a long day of work and play.  Win.
