I used to be fairly fickle when it came to my hair-care products: if I was in need of shampoo or conditioner and saw a bottle that looked pretty (or smelled good) on a drugstore shelf, chances are it was coming home with me. I think it’s safe to say that over the years I tried nearly every major brand on the market…and, honestly? I was rarely crazy about the results; my hair was always on my list of least-favorite attributes. But I figured, you know…it was probably my hair that was the issue, not the products I was using. How big of a difference could a shampoo make?
A big one. Using a shampoo and conditioner that you chose because it’s the right one for your hair type – not because the bottle is purple and you’re into purple that day – is a major way to get your locks under control and looking great.
At the beginning of the summer Dove sent over some Daily Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner*, and now that we’re smack in the middle of August I can officially say that never in my life has my hair been as manageable and healthy-looking as it is these days. (My bangs are still weird when it’s especially humid out, but you can chalk that up to my insistence on maintaining an extremely non-monsoon-weather-friendly hairstyle.)
Proof? The photos in this post were taken for Dove on successive days during one week in July – traditionally the very worst possible hair-related month for me.
What’s so great about these formulas? Technically speaking, they contain something called Pro-Moisture Complex which goes beyond the surface to hair’s cellular level. Hair is beautifully moisturized and healthy-looking without excess residue. But what I love about this shampoo and conditioner is how they make my hair feel: weightless, bouncy, and silky even when I wash it every day (which I’ve been doing lately thanks to the heat, even though I’m usually an every-three-days girl).
If you’ve tried these products yourself, I’d love to hear what you think of them!
