The Power of the Dark Side

Sorry, I had to do it. Those of you who got the reference in the title, I love you. Anyway, I have a bit of a confession: I’m a nonconformist. I sometimes do the opposite of what is popular just because I want to be different. I hate blending in. So when summer comes around, I dye my hair dark instead of light like everyone else. Come on, join me on the dark side.

A few years ago, I got balayage highlights. It was one of the first times I dyed my hair and it was fun for a while. Ever since I cut 11 inches off a few years ago, I’ve been slightly more adventurous with my hair. But unfortunately, the highlights totally damaged it. So after I got back from Thailand, I cut off all the dead ends and got a dark glaze.

To solidify the silky, healthy effects of my fresh haircut and darker color, I got a new round of shampoo and conditioner: Dove Regenerative Nourishment. As I’ve shared before, one of my biggest hair tips is to regularly switch out your shampoo and conditioner. I never use the same line two times in a row; I feel like the effects fade when I do. So since I’m working on repairing the damage from the summer sun and ocean salt, Dove Regenerative Nourishment seemed perfect. And it has been!

The line is actually infused with Red Algae + Keratin NutriComplex and repairs the internal structure of damaged hair, reconstructing and strengthening it – and it shows. But aside from looking healthier, I noticed my hair feels much healthier after using the shampoo and conditioner. It’s tangle free and feels super thick, strong and smooth. What else could a girl want for her hair?
