The Growout Continues with Dove #LoveYourHair

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Dove and The bLink Marketing Network. The opinions and text are all mine.


You remember when I chopped all my hair off to a fade about 3 years ago?

Well, I kept it short for about a year and started regrowing it to donate yet again. I didn’t know what I wanted to do with it. Keep it short…grow it…color it.. straighten it again. (PS Did you know that 8 out of 10 women feel pressured to wear their hair a certain way?! #i’mnotwithit) So… My “growout” started earlier this year. (Click here to see what I’m talking about)

This month I tried out some new products to help me through the grow out process.

Dove’s Coconut & Hydration Shampoo and Conditioner, and Quench Absolute Supreme Creme Serum.

Here are my thoughts:

Shampoo: Smells amazing. Left my hair very clean, but almost squeaky clean. I don’t really have anything negative to say about the shampoo except I wish it was creamier, vs translucent. It’s a mental thing for me.

Conditioner: Smells almost as amazing as the shampoo (and the scent lasts in your hair!) and is creamy and thick. It gave a little bit of slip to the detangle process, but not tons. I used it a second time as a co-wash and OMG!!! Perfect co-wash conditioner. PURR.FECT. I was able to quickly detangle and get in and out the shower.  It left my scalp feeling fresh and my hair feeling moisturized.

Quench: This serum is bomb. Bomb!! It’s light and creamy and goes on smooth. (check my video out here) It gives a sheen to your hair that lasts for days without reapplication. My hair felt soft for days after I used it on my inital wash n go. I was very heavy handed so I did feel a little bit of residue later on, but not much. When I try it again I will use a normal amount instead of being crazy, and I’m sure I won’t feel anything leftover.

This is what Dove says about it:

The first ‘on-the-go’ leave-in treatment for curls by Dove Hair that is a fast absorbing, lightweight serum that utilizes a creamy formula to nourish hair for the ultimate shine and manageability

I hereby attest that this is absolute truth! (And it’s unusual when what is advertised is what is really so…high five, Dove!)

Here are the results of the wash n go with the Quench:

Love my results with these Dove products, and am still loving my color! I’m grateful that I’m able to grow my hair out to donate, and happy that I’m able to wear my hair as I please. We see only certain hair types (and hair colors) in the media touted as what’s beautiful. But I believe (as does Dove) that beautiful hair is whatever hair makes YOU FEEL beautiful. One of the best gifts for busy moms like me is the gift of feeling beautiful.
