My hair and I have been through a lot together. I've tried countless shampoos and conditioners and dozens of different hairstyles over the years. From my first perm in sixth grade to various colorings and cuts, it's taken me a long time to feel like I finally found my sweet spot with my locks. I've written posts in the past talking about the unique texture of my hair...it's thick and pretty coarse and sometimes just has a mind of it's own!
Over the years, I've gone through a lot of different hairstyles...this particular one below is from a few years ago when I was rocking the bangs. It's also one that I loved, but I can't say the same for all of my hairstyles! (Who can?!) One of my personal faves was what I affectionately refer to as "triangle hair" and was from middle school. I'll let you imagine what that looked like. Let's suffice it to say that I've had my fair share of bad hair days/weeks/months, but my and my hair, we're good now. The different styles and cuts I've had over the years form my own hair story and each moment of that journey, however embarrassing it might be now, is a special one!
I have the kind of hair that responds really well to things like coloring and perms...those types of treatments seem to soften my hair. Because my hair is very coarse and incredibly dry, it has a tendency to also succumb to the elements. That means it gets nice and brittle in the winter and gives in to summer humidity. Add heat styling to that, and my hair definitely needs TLC regularly!
Since my hair loses moisture pretty easily, and it's been damaged over the years by both my terrible hair decisions, the seasons, and styling it, I love knowing that I have the help of fantastic products like Dove Hair. Dove Hair products have been a staple in my family for as long as I can remember. My grandmother has always sworn by these classic, gentle, and effective products and I've always loved them!
I picked up Dove Hair's newest line at Target the other day. The NEW Dove Hair Regenerative Nourishment Collection might just be the best line yet. Between the shampoo, shampoo, and Serum in Oil leave my hair beautifully nourished and 100% visibly damage free, no matter what choices I make in terms of cut, color, or style. I love any product that helps to protect and heal my hair so that I can continue styling it the way I want to without having to worry about damage!
I don't know about you, but I think it's kind of fun to look back over the journey I've been on with my hair. I can laugh at some of my previous hairstyles now. No matter what your hair story is, remember that it makes you unique, so don't take yourself too seriously and instead let yourself laugh about the less-than-flattering hairstyles you may have donned in the past, or draw inspiration from those styles that you really loved!
Next time you are at Target, grab the new Dove Hair Regenerative Nourishment Shampoo, Conditioner and Serum in Oil. Your hair will thank you!
