Soft Curls Tutorial

I have said it before, I will say it again, the products you use in your hair are gong to be what makes and breaks a hairstyle. If you want big hair, you’ve got to use voluminizing products. If you want a style to stay, you need a good hair spray. If you want silky smooth locks, you’ve got to use a good hair oil.

Now, not all products are created equally either. If you’re looking for a good hair oil, you have to make sure it won’t weight down your hair or make it look greasy.

Recently I was sent the Dove Pure Care Dry Oil collection to try. I already love Dove and have been using their deodorant and body wash so I was already thinking I was going to like it. But you know a product is good when you can feel the difference in your hair. And lately, I can’t stop touching my hair!

Their claim is that you can feel the difference in just one wash. Now, that’ s a lofty claim, right? It nourishes hair without making it feel greasy or heavy and the oil is proven to absorb quickly. 

Lovely advertisements, right? Well, what happens if I don’t see these results personally when I use the products? They will straight give you your money back! Yep, you read that right. Dove is so convinced that you’ll love the products that if you don’t, you’ll get your money back. I love it when companies do this because there are so many claims out there telling us what’s the best for what and what we need to buy next. I have a hard time spending money on things if I’m not sure I’m going to like them. When they’re guaranteed, I feel more secure when I do buy!

I’ve used the shampoo, conditioner and oil two times since writing this post. Mainly because I don’t wash my hair that much. Which is actually a good testament to how the product works! For example, it was I hadn’t washed my hair since Monday and it’s Friday and my hair was nasty. Like slicked-back-stays-in-a-ponytail-on-it’s-own kinda nasty. With one wash it was back to feeling fully cleaned, silky smooth and completely conditioned.

I wish you guys could touch my hair to really see. The whole drive home for me tonight I couldn’t stop playing with it! It’s so soft and smooth! I hope you can get a good idea through the pictures though.

I put together a simple way to make the most of this product. It’s soft curls tutorial. They’re great because they’re voluminous curls but still silky smooth. Here’s how I did it:

Soft sexy curls tutorial

  • Start with washing your hair with the Dove Pure Care Dry Oil shampoo and conditioner (not pictured)
  • When you’re hair is damp, add a couple pumps of the Dove Pure Dry Oil to your hair starting half way down the hair all the way to the roots, focusing on the roots & ends.
  • Flip your head over and blow dry until dry, but don’t worry about styling with a blow dryer.
  • Start by sectioning off the top section and starting in the front.
  • With a clip less curling iron, curl the hair back, let it sit for sec and then secure with a duckbill clip or a bobby pin.
  • Repeat this step until your hair head is covered in curls.
  • Let the curls sit until they are completely cooled down, maybe do your makeup or something!
  • Let the curls out & run your hands through them.
  • VOILA! Pretty, sexy, soft curls!

This look is so easy, I know you guys can do it. If you don’t like using a clip less curling iron, then by all means, use a regular one! It will have the same affect.

I would love to see you ladies give these soft curls, or any look really, using the Dove Pure Care Dry Oil products! I really think you will LOVE the effect they have on your hair. You won’t be able to stop twirling it around! When you do, make sure you snap a pictures and use the hashtag #silkyhairdare. If you do, you will be entered to win some of the $20,000 in prizes that are up for grabs!! Sounds like a great reason to take & post that picture! Make sure you check out for more information.

I hope you liked it! Happy Friday everyone!
