A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting and having my hair styled by celebrity hair stylist Mark Townsend while he was in NYC promoting the new Nourishing Oil Care Collection from Dove®. Now I have to admit that I have been loyal to Deva products for my natural curly/wavy hair for nearly 4 years. Yes, I try other products as they are sent to me, but I always go back to Deva. So I was a little skeptical about the effects of a drugstore brand (yes, you can label me a snob).
Mark was a total doll and really sings the praises of this new haircare line from Dove. Truly. He even uses them on his celebrity clients. My hair was washed with Dove Nourishing Oil Care Shampoo & Conditioner and blown out by Mark. I also got a little side swept bang trim. While styling my hair Mark told me he loves these products because the really transform dry, unpredictable hair into beautifully smooth hair without weighing it down. Since I color my hair, it can be dry…particularly the ends.
There are two main causes of dry hair – self-inflicted dryness and heredity. Blow-drying, over styling and coloring may cause self-inflicted dryness, and women with curly, wavy or textured hair are likely to experience hereditary dryness. Double whammy for me! Roughness, dryness and frizz are also early signs of damage. This new Dove Nourishing Oil Care collection, with Weightless Nutri-Oil technology, transforms dry, rough and frizzy hair into beautifully smooth hair.
Mark told me to use the Dove Nourishing Oil Care Daily Treatment Conditioner on my ends and leave it in for a few minutes. When he was done styling my hair he applied a bit of the Dove Hair Nourishing Oil Care Serum and instructed me to mix it with a bit of the Dove Hair Nourishing Oil Care Leave-in Smoothing Cream on the days I were my hair curly.
Well I have to tell you, my blowout lasted 5 days! That never happens! I could not believe it. My hair never looked greasy or oily and had body for 5 straight days! Needless to say, I was eager to try the products at home. Guess what? I'm now hooked. I admit I have been using my Deva No-Poo shampoo, but I have also been using the Daily Treatment Conditioner and styling products as instructed and they have been working beautifully! My hair is super shiny (which is hard to accomplish with curly hair) and weightless! I can't believe these products work so well, are available at drugstores and don't cost over $5!
