When we first saw the press release for Dippity Do’s Girls With Curls collection, both of us were like wait a minute Dippity Do is still around? Apparently our favourite 90’s hair care line is still rocking! We couldn’t wait to be reunited with our old friend who used to be a staple in our hair care routine.
The Girls With Curls line took me right back to my pre-teens from the second I saw the bottles. The big oversized pink bottles made my inner 12 year old squeal with delight. The sweet candy smell and bright pink hue of the product made her jump up and down. The adult in me was concerned though. Just because it makes me want to put on The Spice Girls doesn’t mean it’s going to be good for my hair.
I swapped out my favourite shampoo and conditioner for these giant pink bottles. I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised. Using no harmful chemicals, Dippity Do’s Girls With Curls collection cleaned my hair gently. It isn’t harsh on my hair at all. I might have liked it to do a little more deep cleaning, but that is more personal preference than fault of the product.
A few hours later, when my hair was dry my curls were gorgeous. Even I envied my own hair. I had lots of big volume and bounce in my hair. People were complimenting me on my wow factor hair. I was in love with Dippity Do all over again. My hair didn’t feel as clean as it could, but it looked gorgeous.
The gel in the collection is another story. While some people might want to keep their curls with this gel, I am not one of them. I understand that it will make my hair hold the curl longer, but it also made my hair stiff and sticky. To keep all of my curls intact, I would have also had a helmet of hard crusty gel. If I was going out for a night or special event, I might employ the help of this gel, but on a day to day, I won’t. Every girl was hair they can run their fingers through. Dippity Do’s Girls With Curls got me halfway there. It’s not my new favourite, but it gave me one day of gorgeous curls that I will remember for a long time.
