Have you ever showered at a girlfriend's or female family member's house and seen their stray hairs (stragglehairs) left behind on the shower walls or floor? If not then you have impeccably clean friends and they deserve all the Girl Scout cookie rewards (Samoas, preferrably). But if you've showered in bathrooms like the ones my friends have, then you know what I mean.
And if you're anything like me, you may have looked those stragglehairs up and down while half wanting to puke and half commenting about how different they look than your own.
I promise I have a point to this, don't worry.
I distinctly remember being in my friend Kasey's shower one day back in high school and noticing that her individual hair strands are about seven hundred percent thicker than mine. Each one of hers looked like yarn compared to my tooth floss locks. And here's the point: that's when I realized that this was the exact reason for the monstrosity of issues I have with my hair.
Okay that's a bit of an exaggeration. I really do love my hair. But we all have to complain every once in a while, right? My complaint being that my hair is super fine. There are tons and tons of strands so it looks like my hair is thicker but each of those individual hairs is extremely thin. So doing anything with it other than keeping it long and straight gets a little... hairy. Yikes, I had to.
Exhibit A: I had it curled for my mom's 50th birthday party, which was great, except it lasted a whole hour. Womp.
And in the winter I look like a toddler rubbed a balloon on my head while simultaneously forcing my finger into a light socket because, hello static. So I tend to keep a stock of dryer sheets around just to run through my strands before leaving the house. Enter what happened for this 1 Year Blogiversary picture in Exhibit B...
Add all of that up with the fact that I get a ton of breakage due to everything being so fine and you'll understand why there were a couple of times back in the day when I just said "screw it" and chopped it all off. But then I ended up looking like Suri Cruise so I'd grow it right back out again. Cough my 19th birthday here in Exhibit C:
So as you can see, I've been on a life mission to find products that moisturize and repair dry and damaged hair. Enter the NEW Dove Regenerative Nourishment Collection. Which is basically made up of every single thing my thirsty locks need.
I've been using Dove's products for years now. Shampoo, conditioner, body wash, deodorant, you name it. It's like my Chipotle of bathroom products. But I swear it was like Dove Hair made this specific product just for me. The shampoo doesn't add too much moisture so my naturally greasy roots (ick, I know) don't get even more greaseball-like (which is big for me). The conditioner miraculously moisturizes each baby strand so that my ends aren't flying all over the place from being dried out. And the oil gives that extra boost to keep everything locked in tight so things don't start splitting after a single blow dry.
Like I said, miraculous.
So next time you are at Target, grab the new Dove Regenerative Nourishment Shampoo, Conditioner and Serum in Oil. Your hair will thank you!
