I don't think I've ever done a review for a product before, but when BlogHer contacted me about reviewing a Dove hair care product, I jumped at the chance. You see, I don't have good hair.
Then you factor in genes working in the nasty way they have of gifting unpleasant traits to unwilling and unfortunate recipients, and it's not surprising that Zoe Bug also inherited my lifeless straw-like hair. So sorry, Babe.
Stinkerbell, however, was switched at birth and got all the looks from somebody's family, and the only good hair. She has the Fabio-Shake-It-and-Let-it-Fall-Into-Perfect-Place hair. It's disgusting.
And it's wasted on her because she's not the least bit girly and has to be threatened to even wash and condition her hair, let alone comb it.
Before I signed up to do this review I made sure both girls were on board to help me test it out. I sat them down and I said, mainly to the Stink because Zoe does whatever I tell her to do, "If we're going to do this right, all of us have to wash our hair and use the conditioner for at least a week, FOR REAL. Who's in?"
Since I put it that way, both girls were excited to get started. So we did, and this is what we thought.
We love it! We tested the Dove Nutritive Therapy Nourishing Oil Care Conditioner. Wow, that was a mouthful.
Seriously though, it left our hair super easy to comb through, and when it dried, our hair felt downright silky. Maybe I should emphasize that a little more. It made Zoe's and my straw-like hair silky. No. Lie.
I'd tell you that Peanut Head couldn't keep his hands out of my hair since I've been using this stuff, but I don't want to exaggerate. It's not my style.
Plus you might vomit.
The nifty part about all this for you, is that you have the opportunity to enter the Dove Sweepstakes for a $1,000 Spafinder gift card. I wonder if I can enter this Sweepstakes too? That sounds really good. Probably I can't, so you should do it so I can live vicariously through you.
You need to follow the link below and answer the following question that I just made up.
If you win the Spa Finder gift card, what services would you want available to you?
Feel free to make stuff up. I think spas need to hear about the things that really relax us. Like while I'm getting a massage, I want a team of Maintenance Engineers at my house, cleaning it from top to bottom. That's going to help me really enjoy a massage.
Oh yeah, there's also a link to get a $1.50 off Dove coupon so you can try this conditioner out for yourself. Go ahead, you won't be sorry.
