Pin To Win: Dove Colour Care Contest

A sponsored hip + urban girl post.

It's all about the little things in life, like a smile from a cute stranger, pretty coffee art or walking out of a salon with the perfect just-coloured hair. When it comes to hair, we're all over getting tressed to impress and that is why we are super excited to announce that we have been selected to be Dove Hair Ambassadors!

The timing is perfect as I recently highlighted my hair and was looking for a new colour-safe shampoo to try out. What I really like about the Dove Colour Care collection is that the products are low in sulphates and extra gentle. It's been 8 weeks and great so far in keeping my hair from getting dry and brittle after so much processing. The daily deep conditioner is my favourite and leaves my hair super soft. The price tag (about $10 a bottle) also works for me! My new colour is a lot lighter than my natural jet black hair, but it's definitely getting me in the mood for spring!

To demonstrate that Dove Colour Care keeps colour vibrant for up to 8 weeks, I will be posting pics of my hair once a week on Instagram and Pinterest. Follow along as we #KeepTheColour! Meanwhile, if you also colour your hair, we would love for you to try the Dove Colour Care collection with us and experience the awesomeness for yourself!

Here's How...

1) Enter our Dove Colour Care Pinterest Contest by filling out this form
2) Then repin an inspirational hair image from our #KeepTheColour Board to your own Pinterest page. By Repinning the photo, the entry will be automatically entered into the contest. You are allowed to pin once daily.
** BOTH steps must be completed to qualify. **
