My hair is my security blanket, it always has been. When my hair looks great, I feel great. When I'm having a bad hair day, the rest of my day is thrown off as well. For this reason I take my hair care routine pretty seriously. I want my hair to look and feel healthy. As a beauty blogger I'm constantly switching things up and trying different trends. In order to make sure my hair can keep up with the changes, I need to treat it extra special.

I remember the days where I didn't use any products in my hair because I was afraid it would weigh my fine hair down. In return I had to deal with frizzy hair, especially throughout the warmer days. This issue made me feel self-conscious and fed-up with my hair. All I wanted to do was be able to wear my hair straight without worrying about the frizz. And now I can finally do that!

When I find new products that make my hair look amazing, I of course need to immediately share them with all of you. My recent hair obsession has been the new Dove Regenerative Nourishment products. I've been using both the Regenerative Nourishment shampoo and conditioner and they've been so good to my hair. The shampoo helps repair signs of damage on your hair (which I have a lot of from dying my hair one too many times). It also works to replenish your hair's nutrients to make your once damaged hair now stronger. Say goodbye to breakage! The conditioner then nourishes your hair by repairing the internal structure. After using this duo you're left with softer, healthier hair.

The product, which is crucial to achieving the sleek hairstyle below, is the Dove Regenerative Nourishment Serum-in-Oil. A lot of people have been asking me lately how I get my hair so shiny and the secret is in this bottle. With this product Dove brings together the nourishment power of an oil and the restorative qualities of a serum -- making this a pretty powerful duo. Check out the pictorial below to see how I use this little guy multiple times when I'm styling my hair.

Here are the super easy steps to getting a sleek, straight hairstyle. Feel free to pin the pictorial and share with friends!

STEP 1: Start by washing your hair with a nourishing shampoo like the Dove Regenerative Nourishment Shampoo & Conditioner.

STEP 2: Grab your favorite hair oil. Mine is the Dove Regenerative Nourishment Serum-in-Oil because it gives me the benefits of a serum and an oil.

STEP 3: Squeeze a dime size or nickel size (depending on how much hair you have) of the oil onto the palm of your hand.

STEP 4: Rub your hands together and start distributing the oil onto your hair. Focus on the ends and apply the rest lightly to the top of your hair.

STEP 5: Start blow-drying your hair like your normally would.

STEP 6: Flat iron any stray hairs that need a little more straightening.

STEP 7: Here's my little shiny hair trick. I apply a little bit more of that Dove oil & serum -- just a little bit.

STEP 8: And you're done! Enjoy your fabulous sleek, straight hair.

Even though my hair isn't naturally sleek, straight with the help of Dove hair products I was able to achieve a look that I love and makes me feel confident. I love that Dove is constantly encouraging women to love every single part of themselves including their hair.
