In launching my new YouTube channel I’ve been watching a lot of videos.
*Don’t forget to subscribe and give the videos a thumbs up/comment… shameless plug over*
I came across this international Dove campaign about Real Beauty Sketches a while ago and it really impacted me and resonated with me because I’m guilty of this.
Here’s the video.
I have been a fan of Dove products for years – I use the soap all the time and also love their body moisturisers. I’m thrilled that they have introduced a Hair Care range and on seeing a few beauty bloggers already rave about this, I knew I had to try it too.
What I love about the brand, besides the fact that the products are excellent and affordable, is the message. I’ve watched the various commercials over the years – taking real women and showing them off beautifully. Real women; real inspiration.
It’s so wonderful to look at marketing that is relatable and doesn’t make me feel like I need to be super skinny with perfect skin, hair, teeth etc etc etc… I wish we could all walk around with constant Photoshop, but ahem…
Dove is all about making women feel beautiful inside and out, right now. Not when you’ve lost 5kgs, not when you’ve just had your hair done… right now.
I only started using these products recently and I’m so happy with the quick results. There are so many amazing beauty products on the market these days that it can be very confusing. Everyone promises the world but do they truly deliver what they promise? I’m particularly enjoying the fact that most products these days are quite transparent with their ingredients. I’ll give you some of the science – purely because I’m fascinated and so, you might be too.
Dove Intensive Repair Shampoo, Conditioner and Deep Repair Treatment Mask has their patented Fibre Actives technology that gets deep into the hair to reconstruct from within leaving hair much stronger and with up to 5 times less split ends. The Micro Moisture Serum works on the outside of the follicle to strengthen and nourish hair from root to tip, sealing the cuticles.
My hair breaks from the abuse I tend to put it through (sorry hair); so this is exactly what I need.
If you can leave the Intensive Repair Deep Repair Treatment Mask on for 15 minutes or even at night while you sleep, your hair will feel like silk.
I have found this mask to be as good as those deeply expensive masks you get from salons.
All Vanilla Blonde readers can receive R50 off when you purchase 2 or more of Dove Hair Products at selected Clicks, Dischem and Pick n Pay stores. “My people” have spoken to “their people” and know about it – so here is is a list of the participating stores.
