Dove #HairConfidence

Great time at another Dove event: #HairConfidence

Did you know that constantly touching your hair: running your fingers through it, flipping, etc., is a sign of weakness, considered unprofessional, and can even send the wrong signal? (think: flirtation). You may not realize it, but this non-verbal communication just shows that you're not confident! Dove Hair has partnered with behavioral investigator and body language expert, Vanessa Van Edwards to help de-code what most women do not realize: 60% of communication is nonverbal, and touching your own hair is one of the main indicators of nervousness. According to Van Edwards, “even if a woman is using a hair trick to get more volume to help her feel more confident, she may actually come across to others as weak, frazzled and out of control – exactly the opposite of what she’s trying to do.”
Yes, I found the photo booth (of course!)

I always have a the absolute best time at any of the events that my loves at Dove host and this one was truly an eye-opener...

So, be honest, are you guilty of this? If so, stop the hair tricks, because if hair volume is what you want, Dove Oxygen Moisture is what you need (Note: if you have hair like, me, then NO, you should stay away from this volumizing hair line, lol.) Women with fine, flat hair crave volume to look and feel their best. In fact, Dove Hair uncovered that 97% of women with flat hair feel more positively about themselves when they have the volume they crave. Furthermore, the brand discovered that to obtain their desired volume, 99% of women have a tendency to revert to “hair tricks,” such as flipping, teasing, and tying hair up; [1] however, most women don’t realize that these common “hair tricks” can undermine how confident they appear to others.
