Dove HairDare

Since I was about 13 years old, I was obsessed with experimenting with my hair. Despite my mother’s pleas to not experiment, I just could not resist! My biggest temptation was to take my natural dark brown (almost black, really) locks to a nice shade of blonde. I would constantly see celebs go from dark to light, and think: I can do that, too! But, then at the last minute, right before getting to the salon, I would panic and think that my hair would be way too damaged, and then chicken out and opt for a pretty shade of chestnut brown. While still super pretty, I was always disappointed that I was too scared to do what I really wanted.

Last year, when Spring and then Summer came around I got the itch to go blonde again. But, again, I chickened out, because: 1) I was getting married in the Fall; and 2) I was WAY too scared to damage my hair or do anything ‘different’ before the wedding. Now that I am a happy Mrs., I thought “why not”! Time to switch things up! New last name, new hair colour - and I am so happy that I did! #HairDare accepted!

I’m not going to lie to you gals, going from basically jet black hair to blonde is not for the faint of heart. Having naturally dry, curly, and fine hair is not the greatest place to start. After my first round of bleaching my hair wasn’t feeling that amazing. And, it also doesn’t help that I am addicted to my heat-styling tools: my curling wand, my flat iron and my blow dryer. Talk about breakage...blah!

That’s when I started to use the Dove Regenerative Nourishment line - and I have to say that it has totally saved my hair! It immediately felt better after the first wash (and it also smells amazing...truly!). The line consists of a nourishing Shampoo, Conditioner and Serum-in-Oil. My favorite product from the line is the Serum-in-Oil which makes my hair feel soft, smooth and glossy. I have also noticed that since I started using the Dove Regenerative Nourishment line that I have way, way less breakage. Having hair that feels so much better and so much healthier makes me feel like trying out something even more fun and daring...lavender hair anyone?! Maybe some rosegold highlights?! I’m feeling super daring! #HairDare accepted ;)

The Regenerative Nourishment range, formulated with Red Algae + Keratin NutriComplex, is a specific daily program for damaged, over-processed hair, making it smoother and stronger against breakage - as if damage never happened. Learn More!
