Get shiny, silky hair without weighing it down - We dare you!

Dove® Hair to Launch “Silky Hair Dare” campaign and sweepstakes on CBS’s Daytime Emmy Award-nominated talk show THE TALK

ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, NJ (September 26, 2014) – Oils are a miraculous, age-old beauty secret known to provide countless benefits to hair. Women crave the beautiful, silky hair oils can offer, but often avoid them as many have concerns it will leave hair weighed down or greasy.

Dove® Advanced Hair Series Pure Care DryOil system offers a non-greasy formula that enhances silkiness and shine for all hair types. Infused with African Macadamia Oil and Coconut Oil, Dove Pure Care Dry Oil system features a lightweight, luxurious formula that penetrates the hair quickly, leaving no greasiness or undesired product build-up, for hair that is sublimely silky and protected.

“Women often fear the word oil because they are afraid of it weighing their hair down,” says Dove Celebrity Stylist, Mark Townsend. “However, oils offer hair a myriad of benefits including nourishment, shine, smoothness and protection. Using a system like Dove Pure Care Dry Oil is the perfect solution for women who need delicate, weightless nourishment to restore silky shine to hair that has become dry or dull.”

On Monday, September 29, tune in to CBS’s Daytime Emmy Award-nominated talk show THE TALK (broadcast weekdays 2:00–3:00 PM, ET; 1:00–2:00 PM, PT) as Dove Celebrity Stylist, Mark Townsend gives two lucky audience members their very own silky hair transformations using Dove Pure Care Dry Oil.
