September 29th was National Coffee Day and October 1st was National Hair Day, so naturally, Dove and Dunkin’ collaborated to create an amazing pop-up experience to celebrate both! The event, Dove x Dunkin, celebrated women on the go by providing free cups of coffee and the chance to freshen their ‘do with a mini styling appointment and free dry shampoo samples. We love that Dove and Dunkin’ wanted to celebrate women who are “running on coffee and dry shampoo,” so we wanted to return the favor by listing the many reasons we love Dove’s Refresh+Care Dry Shampoo line!
Dove x Dunkin' Brought Women On the Go the Products They Can't Live Without
The event was a major success. Celebrity hairstylist, Mark Townsend, did all of the styling while the ladies sipped their cups of much needed coffee. Mark’s fave dry shampoo cocktail is a mixture of the “…Dove Refresh+Care Detox & Purify Dry Shampoo on the roots to soak up any oil and Dove Refresh+Care Volume & Fullness Dry Shampoo on the mid-shafts down for amazing texture.” His most important tip to nailing the dry shampoo technique:
Hold the bottle 8-12 inches away from your hair before you spray to ensure you get a deeply cleansed root.
1. It smells ahh-mazing.
There are five dry shampoos in the Dove Refresh+Care Dry Shampoo line, and they all do an incredible job of freshening up your strands. Since they’re all great, we like to choose based on scent! Our personal fave? Fresh & Floral Dry Shampoo, because it smells like fresh flowers! Fresh Coconut Dry Shampoo is a close second. If scents aren’t your thing, don’t worry, as they have an unscented option too.
2. You can use it for volume while you blow-dry.
One dry shampoo hack not many people know is that you can use it to achieve more volume as you blow-dry your hair. Spray some dry shampoo to the root of your damp hair prior to styling. You’ll notice an amazing difference in the volume and body you can create with this trick!
3. It saves you so much time.
If you’re one of the many women on the go, you probably don’t always have time to wash and style your hair before work or your busy day. Dove dry shampoo is the best option as it refreshes your strands by absorbing all of the unwanted oils you collect every day you don’t wash your hair. It’s also better to not shampoo your strands every day as that can dry them out, especially if your hair is already on the drier or curlier side, like with natural hair. Turning to dry shampoo to give your hair a break from over-washing.
4. It doesn’t weigh down your hair.
For those with fine or flat hair, adding product to your strands can be intimidating. You don’t want it to weight down your style. Dove dry shampoo is a weightless formula that won’t make your hair heavier and flatter. We also love that this dry shampoo leaves no residue in your hair, so you don’t have to look like you’re going gray!
