The Silkiest Hair Ever

I could sum up this entire post with two words:


Or maybe three words:


You know those hair commercials where the models is whipping around her long, lovely locks that look like ribbons of silk?

Yeah.  My hair has never looked like that.


Yes.  I have model hair.  SO SOFT model hair.


I’m super into hair.  I cannot stand a bad hair day.  I’m forever trying to achieve that model hair.  But I don’t want to spend all my monies on hair care.  Nor do I want to spend more than a few minutes dealing with my hair (Also, I have two children under the age of 4, so, let’s be real.  No one gives me more than a few minutes to do my hair.).

So when Dove gave me the opportunity to try out it’s Pure Care Dry Oil line, I was all, gimme some of that!  Because I LOVE myself dry oil.  I’ve tried almost every single dry oil formula available at the drug store with mixed results, so I was eager to give these Dove products a try.

First off, love the packaging.  That oil is in a glass bottle!  I’m so fancy!  And the smell of this stuff is….ahhhhh….intoxicating.  I’m all about that macadamia oil scent.  It’s clean and fresh yet sultry.  Which is exactly how I like to smell.  You think, oh, look at Sarah, she’s squeaky clean with her model hair, but, oh, what’s that?  She also smells a little sultry!


Okay, so that’s all well and good.  I smell nice.  But let’s hear more about the performance!

I’ve been using the shampoo, conditioner, and dry oil for several weeks now, and I’m amazed.  It’s made my hair silkier and shiner than any shampoo I’ve used in recent history.  I love how the shampoo makes my hair feel clean without stripping it.  And the conditioner leaves just the right amount of weight in my hair after I rinse.

The best thing about this shampoo and conditioner is, it’s prolonged the life of my recent hair cut.  Usually, by now, I’d need another trim.  But these products condition my hair so well that I’ve been able to hold off getting another cut.  And, get this, after I started using this shampoo and conditioner, I’ve received numerous compliments on my hair and everyone asking me: wow, you’re hair looks so good, did you just get it cut?

Nope!  It’s just wash and wear!

And the dry oil?  My new most favorite thing!

First off, it’s in a pump.  And you know that I love me products with a pump.  That makes application much easier.  I’ve been pumping about four to five pumps into the palms of my hands, rubbing my hands together, and applying the product mostly on the ends of my locks.

I styled my hair as I normally do (blow dryer and straightening iron), and my hair is crazy silky smooth.

Since I heat style my hair every day (and wash it everyday), I need hair care products that aren’t going to damage or dry out my hair.  And these products are winners.  For sure.  Especially now that winter is coming and the dry air always tends to make my hair wacky (Hello, static cling!), I need all the conditioning I can get!


Recently I’ve been styling my hair super sleek like my BFF Taylor Swift.  You know that sleek bob she’s rocking in her Shake It Off video?  Yeah, my hair looks just as sleek and shiny as Taylor’s when I wash and condition with my Dove shampoo and conditioner, follow up with my dry oil, blow dry, and quickly smooth out my hair with my flat iron.  And that’s it!  That’s the only thing I do!

If you’re hair could use some love, I encourage you to give this new line a try.  Dove Hair is daring women everywhere to try Dove Pure Care Dry Oil, risk-free now through December 31, 2014.  If you are not completely satisfied with the Dove Advanced Hair Series Pure Care Dry Oil system, Dove will refund your purchase (from 9/21 – 12/31).

I’m super pleased with these Dove products.  And I’m super pleased with my shiny model hair.  Thank you, Dove!
