Healthy Hair All Summer Long

Over my years of blogging I’ve received quite a few questions and comments about my hair and how I maintain healthy hair. So in a sense, this post is long overdue. Few know this, but as a child I suffered from alopecia, an autoimmune disease that causes hair loss – all of my hair, in my case. Fortunately, due to an aggressive treatment regimen, not only did my hair grow back, it grew back extremely thick!


After going through alopecia, keeping my hair healthy became a passion of mine. And although I was never afraid to change the style or color of my hair – I’ve done it all people: perms, blonde, jet black (that was interesting), short, long – keeping my hair healthy was always a priority for me.

Over the years I’ve tried everything from high-end salon brand shampoos and conditioners, to drug store finds. But in the end, I always come back to the basics. Dove Intensive Care shampoo and conditioner are my go-to both in the summer and year round.

Intensive Care for Your Hair

Dove Intensive Repair works to repair hair and stop 90% of hair damage before it happens. Whether your hair is dry from too much chlorine or damaged from styling, Dove Intensive Repair shampoo and conditioner feature a patented nourishment system that works to make hair progressively more resilient to damage after each wash.

And for as potent a moisturizing punch this duo delivers, they don’t weigh hair down with excess residue, which is a hug pet peeve of mine! Since I’ve switched to Dove Intensive Repair, I also find that I don’t need other products to style my hair. Its completely streamlined my routine!

My hair is smoother and more manageable that ever before, with a major reduction in frizziness. And if you’re familiar with Chicago humidity, that’s saying A LOT! Even my husband has noticed the change. So whether your suffering from breakage, split ends, or overall dryness and damage, I challenge you to try Dove Intensive Care shampoo and conditioner. You can have healthy hair too – I can’t wait to hear how much you love it!
