My New Hair (and a $1000 SpaFinder Giveaway!)

I’ve been a ‘cheap’ conditioner girl for as long as I can remember. Whatever was on sale, I bought.  My motto was: “As long as I don’t have tangles it must be working.”  Sure, it never worked magic on my coarse hair, but I assumed nothing would.

Add this summer’s drought and I found I could do something new:  Dance along with Izzy, of Disney’s Phineas & Ferb, when she sings her song, “Izzy’s Got the Frizzies.”  In other words, my thick main did not appreciate summer.  Thankfully, Dove® sent me one of their advanced conditioners, Dove Intensive Repair. 

My daughter spotted the new conditioner and stole it.  Seriously!  After she used it, she flung her hair in my face.  “Feel it, Mom.  Feel it!” 


One touch and I could see why she was excited. Her hair felt incredibly soft.  Usually ‘coarse’ would be the term to describe the hair in my family. Yet, even after a summer of swimming almost daily, and a two-week marching band boot camp (outdoors), just one use of this stuff made my daughter’s hair feel silky.

So I stole it back.  I don’t know how to explain the smell except pleasantly fresh, like a spring day after the rain.  My hand literally flew through every strand of hair.  That never happens unless I’ve just had my once a year salon visit.  And even then, a stylist once got her round brush stuck in my hair and had to cut it out.  I’m just saying.

The conditioner boasts a patented micro moisture serum that seals lifted cuticles and fiber active technology that is supposed to rebind damaged proteins.  In practical terms, all I know is my hair was still silky smooth after I dried it and styled it.

My daughter was the one that sold me on the conditioner forever though.  As I walked back to the car after running an errand she said, “Mom!  You looked like a model.  Your hair was shining and blowing in the wind as you whipped your hair back into place.”

 Have I mentioned I love my daughter?

    I will give this conditioner a try. I use handmade carrot soap on my hair followed by cheap conditioner. I’m always looking for a good one. I’ll give this one a try… My hair is coarse too.
