So I have some news that I've been waiting to share with you for awhile now, but no longer! I am over-the-moon excited to tell you that for the next year, I'm going to be joining the Dove Hair team as their Brand Ambassador.
I mean...Dove. Dove! Beyond the fact that their products have been a staple for me and my family for as long as I can remember, I've been struck for years (decades?) now by the company's approach to real beauty and their commitment to building self-esteem in women of all ages. I remember seeing those ads featuring a lineup of real women years ago (I think it was right around the time I graduated from college) and thinking to myself how beautiful they were, and how cool it would be to appear in one. So to have the opportunity to work this closely with a company that I have such admiration for - it's a dream come true.
So what does this brand ambassadorship mean? All sorts of awesome stuff: I'll be testing out products and styles for you, providing my very best hair tricks and tips in posts and videos, working as a "real world" counterpoint to celebrity stylist Mark Townsend, and attending Dove events to provide on-the-go coverage (I've got one coming up in the Hamptons that I'm pretty psyched about), among other things.
Another exciting thing about being the Dove Hair Brand Ambassador is that I now have access to all sorts of fantastic Dove products...which means that you now have access to all sorts of fantastic Dove products. So to kick off the program, I'd like to give fifty readers (yes, fifty) the opportunity to try out two products that I'm completely obsessed with at the moment: the Nourishing Oil Care Detangler (I use this every single time I brush out my wet hair, and think it's an absolute beach bag essential) and the Style+Care Frizz-Free Shine Cream-Serum, which is a lightweight frizz-fighter that you smooth onto your ends to break them up a bit and give them some lovely, healthy shine.
To win your very own full-sized version of both products, just comment below - anything goes, really, but I'd love to hear your very first Dove memory (everyone has one, right?). I'll pick 50 winners at random one week from today. (Contest open to U.S. readers only.)
