I partnered with Dove DermaCare Scalp Dryness & Itch Relief Shampoo and Conditioner to share a little hair talk with you today.
Lately I’ve been hairlazy. It happens every now and then when I stop doing my healthy hair routine. I stop doing what I know works to keep it the healthiest, then I have the nerve to be surprised when my scalp is itchy and my hair looks fried and raggedy. I’m like a yoyo dieter with my hair care regimen but I’m back on my grind now!
Waaaay back in the day, I started drinking a lot of water so that my hair would grow. (You can go ahead and judge me if ya wanna. lol) I read somewhere that staying hydrated would help your hair grow, and help it not be so dry. It seemed to make sense, hydrating from the inside out. To get back on track, I’ve actively started chugging all the water I can. For more than just hair and scalp reasons!
I started using Dove DermaCare Scalp Dryness & Itch Relief Shampoo to help my scalp stop being so itchy. It’s formulated with Active Pyrithione Zinc to treat dandruff and with a blend of oils, helps nourish and protect the scalp. The shampoo cleans without leaving my hair squeaky, which I appreciate. I also tried Dove DermaCare Scalp Dryness & Itch Relief Conditioner and loved the smell, and the slip it gave when detangling my curls. (If you suffer from dandruff in addition to dry, itchy scalp, know that with regular use you can have 100% flake-free hair*)
*No visible flakes with regular use
I’ve been doing a lot of protective styles again. Yes, I wear my wash n gos mainly, but I’ve restarted doing buns, braidouts and twistouts. I’m loving that my wash n gos are looking bouncy again! More importantly, I’m not scratching my scalp, so they’re not getting frizzy as fast from me touching it.
I always take care of my hair by detangling and combing/brushing gently. However, when I’m in hairlazy mode, I “forget” to sleep in a scarf, which my hair needs nightly to stay looking/feeling good. I’m back in my scarf/bonnet combo keeping my hair “pineappled” up high, Marge Simpson style!
I’m sticking to my revamped hair and scalp routine this time….::avoids eye contact:: OK. I’m going to try my best, so I can keep seeing great results.
Have you revamped your hair/scalp routine lately?
