Dove Go Fresh Shampoos and Conditioners

dove shampoos“No Girl Should Need a Guy to Get that Fresh all over Tingly Feeling”  I love it! As the new slated slogan for the Dove Go Fresh Campaign, Dove again provides encouragement and self empowerment messaging to beautiful young women.  I love Dove and their commitment to Real Beauty which began with the Real Beauty Campaign a number of years ago.  I have to add that I have used Dove soap as my body bar since I was a year old.  I have tried other body washes for a day or so but I always return to my tried and true Dove soap. 

With the launch of the new Dove Go Fresh campaign I had to get my hands on this fun new line of Dove Shampoos and Conditioners.  With dramatic scents including Grapefruit & Lemongrass, Cucumber & Greentea, and Waterlily & Fresh Mint, I knew they would smell fabulous.  I decided to test out the Grapefruit and Lemongrass Shampoo and Conditioner just because.  I used the shampoo and conditioner for over a week and I am happy to report that my hair feels, looks, and smells fabulous.  It has volume, body, and shine.  You can’t go wrong with the nice prices as well.  So if you are looking for a solid, nicely priced hair care line check out Dove Go Fresh Shampoos and Conditioners!

Celebrity Style: Marcia Cross Hair & Hairstyles

Marcia Cross HairDid you see Marcia Cross’s hair last night?  Her style was fabulous during the Desperate Housewives revival show.  Marcia’s hair was the perfect shade of mahogany red providing a striking contrast with her pale yet glowing skin tone.  Her curls were individually defined with long frizz free 2 inch curls.  It was completely dramatic!  But would you expect anything less from our Housewives diva?

How to get this look?  When hair is wet lightly spray the Bain De Terre Take Shape Mint Balm.  Comb through hair.  The Bain De Terre spray gel will create the perfect frizz free curl and hold that curl.  Section the hair and curl each section with the Hot Tools 2″ Curling Iron.  Remember the larger the curling iron barrel size the softer the curl.  Lightly stroke curled hair with your finger tips allowing the curl to take on a beautiful spring.  Then dab a few drops of the Abba Pure Shine Drops on your hands and stroke each curl with the shine serum.  Your new hairstyle will scream elegance.

Another Reason to Love Aloe Vera, Hair Loss

Aloe VeraIs Aloe Vera the true cure all for every ailment under the sun?  I cannot attest to every ailment but Aloe Vera is fabulous for your hair and scalp and can even help to prevent hair loss!

Aloe Vera has been used for centuries as a remedy to cure and relieve common skin disorders in Native America, India, and the Caribbean.  This miracle plant has been used to help relieve skin and scalp disorders and keep hair healthy. 

So what is the connection with Aloe Vera and hair loss you ask?  Aloe Vera is known to balance out the PH balance and stimulate the production of enzymes on your scalp which helps stimulate hair growth.  So if you are looking to prevent hair loss or just keep your locks healthy use this sure fire routine to keep your full head of hair on your head versus the bed! 

Before going to bed, dab a bit of Aloe Vera on your scalp with your fingers or cotton ball. Massage in the scalp and hair.  Wash the next day.  If you would rather not sleep with the gel, put Aloe Vera in your hair first thing in the morning and then wash after an hour.  Remember longer is better!  You can find either Aloe Vera stalks at your local grocery store or nursery. Not into the natural stalks, use an over the counter Aloe Vera Gel.
