Summer Hair Survival with Dove!

dove summer suvival

Summer is synonymous with BBQs, beach trips and dips in the pool. While all that fun in the sun may be good for the soul – humidity, saltwater and chlorine can leave your locks looking dull, frizzy and damaged.

Fortunately, with the help of Dove Hair, strands don’t need to suffer this season. The following must-have products provide volume and bounce, beat frizz, and add moisture and nourishment for hair that promises to turn heads through Labor Day!


dove dry shampoo ss

This is my favorite dry shampoo, I won’t admit how many bottles I have in my bathroom right now. I stock up in fear of the stores running out. Its everything a dry shampoo should be cleansing, great smelling and easy to use. And the best part its $4!! I have used a lot of high end dry shampoo’s that couldn’t hold a candle to the Dove formula. Proof you don’t always have to pay more for great products.

We are in camping season in the PNW and I have been branching out and camping at spots without showers. ACK! Being a shower and hair washing junkie that has been a learning curve. I can get dirty with the best of them but love my night time showers and clean hair. Now I have Dove Refresh Dry Shampoo a few spritzes then work through my hair and it smells amazing and looks great. How did I live before?

dove quench mask

Summer always does a number on my hair. With long hours spend in the sun and water my fine hair takes a beating. My curls get a bit wacky and can’t decide what to do. I really love the new Dove Quench Absolute Restoration Mask. I used it after my last camping trip and after 3 days of swimming and sun my hair was very dry. I washed my hair put a dollop of mask on my hair and worked through the ends. After shaving I rinsed the mask and was amazed how smooth and tangle free my hair was. It was soft without being weighed down and my curls got a nice hydrating boost.

dove intensive repair

When your hair is really screaming for help look no further then the Dove Intensive Repair Deep Treatment Mask. The formula is thick and creamy and smells fantastic. The ends of my hair were feeling a bit straw like so I washed and applied the Intensive Repair Mask from the mid shaft to the ends. For a super deep treatment I put a plastic cap on my hair and then wrapped a towel on my head to increase the heat and deep conditioning.

After 10 minutes I rinsed and was amazing how much stronger and shinier my hair was. And even after drying it was soft and smooth and the ends looked great. A fantastic deep treatment that doesn’t leave any residue or build up on my hair.
