Since I clearly pay a lot of attention to the hair on my head and face, Dippity Do has reached out to partner with me again to introduce their new, higher end, line of beard and hair grooming products. Of course, I gladly accepted as I’m always down to try new lotions and potions that could improve my hair.
I’ve broken it down into the different products:
Hair & Beard Oil
First of all, I’d like to clarify that I now rock my natural curls out and as a result, I don’t use products that have a hold. Rather, I’m always in the hunt for new oils and creams that make my hair look less dry and more healthy. Therefore, I was quite intrigued at the fact of having an oil that I can now use on my head as all the other beard oils I get are 0nly for the beard (or at least advertised as such).
After applying the product a few times (throughout the day) on both my beard and hair, I was pleasantly surprised! Thank the lord Jesus, I can instantly make both my beard and hair look less dry instantly. I’m sure their elite set of ingredients played a role in this success; ie Tea Tree Oil and Olive Oil. Also, it does help that it smells quite delicious. Here’s a clip of how much oil I apply:
To test the “market”, I will need to go to a bar and get feedback from the girls on my beard (I’ve done this before… great icebreaker lol)
Hair & Beard Balm
Right away, I was very impressed with Dippity Do’s decision to come out with a beard balm; it shows they really respect the beard. For those that have beards, you will understand why beard balm is so essential to your beard grooming kit. Although beard oil is nice and gives shine/moisture, the beard balm will not only do that but it provides some hold so your beard stays intact (and doesn’t have random hairs sticking out). It’s the Shea Butter that I believe helps with the hold.
I’m gonna be honest and admit that I did not apply the balm to my hair. However, as mentioned, it performed very well with my beard. In fact, I would recommend putting on the beard balm right after coming out of the shower while the beard is still damp.
Here’s a video of me applying the Beard Balm:
Hair & Body Wash
This product had me at Charcoal… I am obsessed with this ingredient in face/body washes as it really cleanses your skin effectively and leaves it feeling soft. Additionally, you feel extra fresh because of the, might I add, manly scent. Lastly, it’s quite efficient that you can use this for both hair and body. Kill 2 birds with one stone. 1
Hair Texture Spray Gel
This is what I like to call the “Finisher”. This is the type of product you would spray on your hair when it is nearly perfect and in my specific case, I spray a bit of this after I’ve applied my oil. Do keep in mind that I would spray very little of this product because as mentioned before, I don’t want too much hold for the curly look.
Alternatively, if you have a hairstyle that requires more hold (ie slick back or parted look), I would definitely recommend upping the dosage 🙂
All in all, I’m pleasantly surprised with this set of products as it really caters to men who take hair seriously. Check out my Instagram post for how you can win your own prize pack of the four mentioned products above.
If you don’t get lucky, you can get these at Walmart & Jean Coutu.
Smell ya later.
