Hair Care Update + Healthy Hair Tips

Remember back in September when I shared how I had tested Dove’s Intensive Repair Shampoo and Conditioner? Well now that I’ve been using it for well over a month I’m here to give you a little update on my progress. Spoiler alert: I have been having quite a few great hair days lately. (I mean, have you checked out my Instagram lately? Rarely a hair out of place, I tell ya.)

How to have a great hair day

I’ve been incredibly impressed with how manageable, smooth and sleek my hair has been. Super-soft locks that lead to great hair day after great hair day? You know I’m a happy camper. So are you curious to know what’s been working for me? Here are three tips that have helped tame this mane:

1. I don’t wash my hair every day. In fact I don’t even wash it every other day. It took me a little while to “train” my hair to cooperate, but now I can’t imagine it any other way. Not only is it a time-saver in the mornings, but I swear that my hair has less damage.

2. Less heat styling. Since I’m not washing my hair every day, I don’t need to blow dry it daily either. I’ve come up with a nice system. Day one, I blow dry post-shower. On day two, I typically curl. Day three is either brushed out waves from the day before or it goes in an up-do. Less heat, less damage!

3. Dove! I really am impressed with the way that my hair looks and feels after using their products. Just after two minutes setting in the conditioner, I feel like a new woman. Frizz and dead ends, be gone! And like I said last time, the smell is fantastic.good hair day with doveBut you really don’t have to just take my word for it. You can get a sample yourself!

    I’ve stopped washing my hair everyday as well. I feel like my hair looks better even on the second day than the day that I wash it. You really are having some great hair days!!

  2. Rebecca

    I do the same with my hair – I use dry shampoo often so I don’t have to wash my hair everyday. Which also means I use less heat! I definitely notice a difference in my hair too! I wish my hair liked Dove products. I have heard great reviews about this shampoo, but Dove usually makes my hair so greasy! But maybe I need to give it another go!

    Ahhh…if only I had half the hair you have! My hair gets so greasy if I don’t wash it every day. I know I could “train” it, but I just can’t stand myself long enough to do it. How long did it take you to get used to it?

  4. Rachel

    I use some Dove products for my hair (not shampoo though) and I love them! Plus, I’m a huge Dove advocate since their soap is the only one I’ve ever used!

  5. Sarah

    I have been training my hair too and it’s amazing what a difference it makes! Although today is day two and its not going sooo well today but oh well, that’s what pony tails are for, right?

  6. Stephanie

    yea I was my hair every 3-4 days and it’s learned to cooperate. I just have very frizzy hair and by not washing it as often, I find it helps.

    Love your hair. I also don’t wash my hair everyday. No one should. It just dries it out. I also don’t wash my sons either every day. Love your necklace and your polka dot top.
