My hair story of 25 years with Dove Hair & the NEW Dove Regenerative Nourishment Collection!
Guess what!? I’m officially 25!
I can’t believe it! I’m not sure if I feel young or old.
My husband made the joke that I am 1/3rd of the way to 75, while my father joked that I am 1/4th of the way to 100.
Either way I am going to be happy for each day that I have & to enjoy it to the fullest & treasure all of the memories & lessons learned!
In honor of my 25th birthday I thought I would share a little bit of My Hair Story with you all today! And boy has my hair been through a lot!
I was born premature & spent several weeks in the NICU, which meant most of my hair was shaven off. Once my hair did begin to grow in it was ridiculously thin and silky. Every clip, bow, & hairband would immediately fall out. So at the age of three my mom began to perm my hair. She continued to perm my hair all the way through my 6th grade year.
In 6th grade, after a day-long canoeing trip (on a week long class trip), my hair was so knotted & tangled I asked my mom to chop it off. She grabbed a pair of scissors & happily complied with my wish to cut off all of my curls. This was the first time I had short hair & anything other than curls since I was a baby!
Between my 8th grade & senior year of high school I had a variety of hair colors. My friends & I would have hair dying parties using hair dye that lasted 8-10 washes. One week I would have light brown (bordering on blonde) hair, the next it would be jet black with a purple sheen. These pictures are better kept in a box hidden deep within our closet.
Here I am as a baby with just a little fluff, in my early years with my hair permed, & then during those embarrassing high school years!
In college I began to yearn for curly hair again. I curled my hair almost every day, but after a while that got exhausting. So I eventually decided to get a perm. Luckily I held off until a few months after I got married during my senior year of college. it was a VERY BAD IDEA & one I don’t like to think about because of the horrendous memories!
Let’s just say they used two boxes of perm on my hair & the result was very badly damaged hair & many bald spots all over my head from where it was very severely damaged.
You can definitely see how my hair has been through a lot with me over the years! I have many memories associated with the seasons & styles of my hair. From every hair cut, color, & disaster, my hair story has been an adventure & one that I have learned from & greatly enjoyed!
This is my current hairstyle. And as you can see I still love to curl my hair as much as possible! Although that does result in quite a bit of damage…
So as you can tell my hair desperately needs help from the hair products I use daily.
Luckily, the New Dove Regenerative Nourishment collection that I picked up at Target helps to repair the damage of styles, color & treatments of the past to leave your hair looking & feeling its very best! Which is great because my hair needs all the help it can get!
I currently have dark brown hair, but I am thinking about slowly lightening it until it becomes a golden blonde. What do you think? Can you see me with warm golden blonde locks?
I love that by using New Dove Regenerative Nourishment collection I can keep transforming my hair & still have perfectly nourished hair that’s 100% visibly damage free!
Plus I love the way my hair feels & smells after I use these new Dove Hair shampoo and conditioner products! But don’t take my word for it! You should try it for yourself!
Next time you are at Target, grab the new Dove Regenerative Nourishment Shampoo, Conditioner and Serum in Oil. Your hair will thank you!
I’d love to hear about your Hair Story!

Blessed is he who considers the poor;
The Lord will deliver him in time of trouble.
The Lord will preserve him and keep him alive,
And he will be blessed on the earth;
You will not deliver him to the will of his enemies.
