Dream for a beautiful hair

Tell me, which girl doesn't like to have a beautiful long, black hair? (like which is shown in clinic plus ad :)) From childhood, I always wanted to have a healthy, black and silky hair. I saw people with curly hair dreaming for silky hair and people with silky hair dreaming for beautiful curls. It's so natural :) Both curly and silky hair has their own advantages when it comes to looks and maintenance.

I have  frizzy, dry and  unmanageable 100% curly hair. Combing the hair daily itself is a big task. Till my 12th standard, my mother was the sufferer. She used to comb my hair with patience. Curly hair is prone to tangles, dryness, splits at the end and so, more hair fall. Frequent oiling, using a good shampoo and conditioning are important for my hair to avoid frizziness and splits at the ends. Sometimes, i used to joke on my hair that


  • It is a concrete jungle and if a mosquito or any insect sticks to it, it cannot come out easily and will die for sure before coming out. 
  • You need to have a glass of glucose water to get enough energy to comb my hair without any tangles

There are positives too :)

  • You can go out after applying oil to your hair without any problem. As hair will be basically dry, will not make your face oily. 
  • No need to use hair pins to pin flowers. They will stick to your hair and very difficult to remove also later. :)

People who see my hair will always feel like I have a thick hair and be jealous as it will be bushy. No one knows actual thickness of my hair unless I do ironing (only in such case, it will be thin)

Now, you might have understood how dry and frizzy my hair was. I have tried several shampoos and conditioners of different brands like Clinic plus, sun silk, Biotech, Loreal, Matrix etc, tried different hair spas, deep conditioning, permanent straightening and also ironing from good parlours, but nothing of much use. Permanent straightening which is supposed to last for at least one year, lasted just 8 months for me. So, the dream of soft, silky hair has remained only a dream forever.

One fine day, I came across Dove shampoo and conditioner specific for 'dryness care' and 'damage care'. I didn't have much hope but tried it. I could see the difference. Frizziness reduced and hair is becoming soft after shampoo and conditioning. Now, hair is manageable. I couldn't believe that this brand suits my hair, as i tried international best brands like Loreal earlier. Whatever may be the reason, this specific product worked for me and that was the end of my hair problems!

There is an awareness quiz by Dove to know which product suits your hair. Here is the link. Try for sure, it may help.

Ramya: While I was reading your post, I thought of suggesting you to use Dove.
I have long (little wavy ) hair. I got rid of tangles after I started using Dove.

Awesome post yaar. I was laughing all the time. The mosquito example was very good. I have straight hair but i am going for temporary curls now. Grass is always greener on the other side ;)

Are there other ways to make hair grow faster?

Indeed, certainly, if you attempt to make the utmost favorable environment for the growth of your
hair, perhaps it may produce faster rate of growth, however it will
be ignorant to assume that despite having
right treatment your curly hair are able to grow many inches right away.

There is an exception to each rule, but the vast majority
of people's hair cannot grow longer than a couple of inches a year - that is set at the hereditary level.
