I have a love/hate relationship with my hair. I’ve struggled with its thick, curly, dryness since I was young. As a child, no one knew how to deal with my hair so it was always a giant puffy, frizz-ball. I hated it. Now that I am older and have learned some curly hair tricks, I’ve developed a better attitude toward my locks. While my hair can be more difficult to maintain, with the right products, I can achieve styles I really love.
The number one tip for great looking curls is to keep them hydrated. Since my hair has been described as “hay-like” on several occasions, I am always on the lookout for products that offer moisture without oiliness or excess weight. For the past few weeks I’ve been using the Pure Care Dry Oil line (shampoo, conditioner and nourishing treatment) from Dove, Don’t let the word “oil” scare you off. I promise it doesn’t weigh down hair or leave it feeling greasy at all. I especially love the nourishing treatment. It absorbs quickly and features a blend of African Macadamia oil and Coconut oil. After using all three products, my hair was noticeably softer, more moisturized and easier to manage.
