Dove Derma + Care Scalp Anti Dandruff Shampoo

Hi loves! I have a problem with dry hair and dandruff in the winter months. My scalp was itchy and very flaky last winter, and I was able to fix the problem with an intensive hair mask treatment. Since the beginning of January this year, my itchiness and dandruff has unfortunately come back. I wanted to try something other than the Head and Shoulders anti dandruff shampoo, since I found it wasn't really working for me anymore (hence the hair mask treatment). After a quick Google search I learned about the new Dove Derma + Care Scalp Anti Dandruff Shampoo. I have tried a few Dove hair products in the past and I've been very pleased with them (the Dove dry shampoo is awesome!), so I figured their anti dandruff shampoo should be good as well. Let me tell you, it made a world of difference after only 1 use!
I used this shampoo for the first time two weeks ago, and I was really impressed by how quickly it worked. The bottle says to leave the shampoo on for 'several minutes'. I decided to leave it on for a full 25 minutes while I soaked in the tub, just to let it really penetrate my scalp. I then rinsed it out and used a regular conditioner I had. My scalp was immediately relived, and I had ZERO visible dandruff the next day! My hair was left feeling soft, smooth, and smelling very fresh. Since then, I've been using this shampoo every other time I wash my hair, alternating with a regular Dove shampoo. The Dove Derma + Care Scalp Anti Dandruff Shampoo will be my go-to shampoo for winter from now on!

What are you favorite anti dandruff shampoos/treatments? Thanks for reading! xo

Love Beauty and Planet Murumuru Butter & Rose 2 Minute Magic Masque

Hello lovelies! I'm excited to be writing my first post of the year! I wanted to share my thoughts on the Love Beauty and Planet Murumuru Butter & Rose 2 Minute Magic Masque. I've been experimenting with different hair colors and venturing into bleaching my hair at home since last fall (I went half blonde in October, and I'm currently strawberry blonde!). Needless to say, my hair has suffered a bit of damage, especially my ends. In November, I picked up the Love Beauty and Planet Murumuru Butter & Rose Masque at Walmart on a whim after seeing an advertisement for the brand in a magazine. I can't say that the cute packaging didn't suck me in as well! This little packet has already given me 4 uses, and I think I can probably get 2 more from it. The masque has a rose scent, but it's not heavy or overwhelming like some rose scents are. The fragrance is actually quite refreshing and light, and lasts in my hair until my next hair wash (I usually wash it every other day). Other than the amazing fragrance, this masque also leaves my hair feeling much softer and healthier looking. I really like its smooth and creamy consistency. It's super easy to apply, versus other hair masques I've tried which were much thicker.
The Love Beauty and Planet brand is committed to producing less waste, and uses 100% recycled plastic for their packaging. Their products are vegan and cruelty free as well! I will definitely purchase this masque again and I would like to try more products from the brand.

Thanks for stopping by! xo
