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 Refresh+Care Invigorating Dry Shampoo – for when you opt out of washing. Washing your hair every day in the summer can strip it of essential oils, leaving it dry and damaged. Try swapping in dry shampoo to absorb oil between traditional washes so that strands look and feel refreshed.

  • Formulated for all hair types
  • Weightless formula refreshes and invigorates hair between regular washes to transform hair from lifeless to bouncy
  • Contains a freshly-washed scent
  • $3.99,

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.

Dove Intensive Repair Deep Treatment Mask
Despite valiant efforts to keep your hair from the inevitable damage that comes with summertime fun, you’ll want a multi-tasking mask on hand to replenish moisture every 1-2 weeks. This lightweight formula works to repair and protect hair from over washing and sun damage.

Dove Challenges Women to Choose Beautiful

Wow, this film gave me goosebumps. I know I would choose the average. And it seems however a woman chooses she would feel self concious about her choice. I love this movement by Dove and their whole push to help women love themselves just as they are. I love Dove products but the company behind them makes me even more happy to purchase their products.

Dove launches Choose Beautiful
A fresh perspective on women’s relationships with their own beauty – one that truly captures women’s perspectives on a global scale, and hinges on mindfulness.

96% of women do not choose the word “beautiful” to describe the way they look. Choose Beautiful encourages women to understand that they have the power to choose to feel beautiful for themselves every day. The film was shot in five international cities, but the same concept remained: presenting women with a choice regarding the way they view themselves. Each woman had the opportunity to choose “average,” or the frequently avoided “beautiful” as their personal descriptor. Through the results of the film, Dove hopes to encourage women to reconsider the choices they make about their beauty.

Choose Beautiful will culminate at Tina Brown’s Women in the World Summit in NYC (April 22-24), where Dove hopes to further a multi-dimensional discussion on beauty and self-esteem.

Dove believes that when a woman chooses beautiful, she radiates happiness and confidence that help her reach her full potential, so choose beautiful every day, and encourage every woman and girl in your life to do the same.

Dove Hair Launches #LoveYourCurls Campaign and Film


My hair went from wavy to spiral curls at puberty and since then I have to admit I have hated my curls more often than not. When I get my hair highlighted and my stylist straightens it I love how perfect it looks smooth, and straight.

As a mother of a now 10 year old girl I see how early they start to judge themselves and I want to be an example. I am working to embrace my curls and my whole body and lead by example. I love this campaign and the way Dove is helping women of every age embrace and love themselves.

In a recent global study, Dove Hair found that 1 in 3 women in the US have wavy to curly hair, yet the traditional standard of beauty is often considered straight and sleek. In fact…

  • Only 10% of women in the US with curly hair feel proud of their hair
  • Only 4 in 10 girls with curly hair think that their hair is beautiful
  • Little girls are 7X more likely to love their curls if people around them do

The Love Your Curls Film powerfully illustrates the relationship young girls have with their curls (which can often be a source of anxiety, frustration and dislike), and what women can do to help inspire future generations to love and embrace their curly hair.

For more than 10 years, Dove has been committed to creating a world where beauty is a source of confidence and not anxiety. The Love Your Curls campaign promises to be a first in the beauty industry – one that urges women to love their curls in an unprecedented way that will have a powerful cultural impact for adult women, and help set the stage for the next generation to feel more confident about their coils.


dove dry shampoo

Along with using better products to bring out my curls I have finally weaned myself to only washing my hair every other day and it has made such a difference in my hair and curls. I always need a little something to freshen up and I am addicted to Dove Dry Shampoo!.

I get lots of cool products to sample one of them being Dry Shampoo and I have tried so many brands, some that cost close to $40. But my favorite remains Dove’s, in fact I just hit Walgreens this week to grab another can. I love how clean and light it is. It gets rid of any grease in my hair and leaves it smelly and looking great and the best part it doesn’t ruin my curls! And if you want to do a big messy bun this is your new best friend. I spray it around the crown of my head let it sit for a moment then work it in. It adds the perfect amount of volume for a beautiful bun look that people will think you took forever creating not two minutes.

Better style comes through better care. That’s why Dove has reinvented its styling collection to nourish and protect hair for a long-lasting, beautiful style.

Our weightless formula absorbs oil to transform hair from lifeless to bouncy so you enjoy style that looks and feels refreshed with a freshly-washed scent, even when you skip your regular wash.
