More Good Hair Days with Dove Pure Care Dry Oil Collection

More good hair days, isn't that what we all want?  I know I feel so much better about my overall appearance when my hair looks good too.  Tell me I'm not alone? 

I was excited to get to try Dove Pure Care Dry Oil Collection, and my hair felt silkier and easy to manage after just one wash. 

I was able to try the Dove Pure Care shampoo and conditioner, as well as the dry oil nourishing treatment with African Macadamia Oil. I loved the scent of the shampoo and conditioner and didn't feel like it left over any residue, which is always a concern when I'm trying a new hair product. 

I thought the nourishing treatment with African Macadamia oil was awesome.  The directions say it can be used prior to washing, after washing with damp hair, or once the hair is dry.  I have been on the look out for something like this to help smooth fly-aways.  I used a few pumps on my clean, damp hair and loved how it helped to tame fly-aways and keep my hair smooth once it was blow-dried and styled.

This Dove Pure Care Dry Oil Collection is great for all hair types, which I love. I also only wash my hair every-other day and felt like my second day hair looked just as good as the first, which is awesome.  There is nothing worse than hair that feels greasy or heavy, and the Dove Pure Care Dry Oil Collection did a great job or keeping my hair looking good.

This fall I'm seeing a lot of fun hair styles.  I don't have a ton of time to devote to styling, but I do have a few simple, go-to styles I thought I'd share today, and the Dove Pure Care Dry Oil Collection helped make me feel polished and put-together all day.

Each of the styles begin with blowdrying and then using a flat iron on my hair.  I've learned a few tricks when it comes to blowdrying.  First, start by using your fingers to dry your hair, instead of using a brush the entire time.  It will take longer and the brush really only helps with styling once your hair is almost dry.  Most importantly, before turning off your blow dryer and calling it good, do a cold shot of air all over your hair.  The cold seals the hair follicles and will keep your hair looking smooth all day, along with the help of the Dove Pure Care Dry Oil Collection

After blow drying my hair I use a CHI Air to straighten my hair, and although it's a bit pricey it works really well.   

This first style below takes less than a minute, but it's great if you want your hair out of your face, which is a definite pet peeve of mine. Simply gather your hair and pull it back to right behind your ear. Then, secure it with a bobby pin or two.  I sometimes keep it smooth like below and other times I twist it a few times before securing it, just to mix it up.

This next style is the one you see most.  Once again it's about pulling my hair out of my face.  For this style, find where your natural part is on each side of your head.  That is where you'll pull your hair back, then secure it with a bobby pin.  I then, pull the secured hair forward a bit to add a bit of volume.

This last style is all about a simple braid.  I couldn't French braid my own hair to save my life, but a simple braid I can do.  For this style gather a two inch or so section of hair and braid it until you have an inch or so unbraided at the bottom.  Next, pull the braid and the rest of your hair in front of your ear back.  Secure it with a few bobby pins behind your ear.
