Got vivid hair color?! Here are some tips & tricks to keep your vivid hair color beautiful with the Dip Shampoo & Conditioner Bars
Let's dive into the best practices for taking care of vivid hair color at home. Not all of us can make it to the salon for frequent touchups so the best we can hope for is to use products that help keep the color in as long as possible. That's where we shine. Our founder, Kate, even made her hair vivid pink during testing & development to make sure these bars were the real deal. So here are her tips to help maintain color vibrancy while using dip shampoo bars and the dip conditioner bar as a hair mask: 1. Firstly, it's crucial to maintain the hair color by washing it less often. As we know, frequent washing fades the color more quickly. So, try to stretch out your washes as long as possible, and when you do wash your hair, use lukewarm or cool water instead of hot. You can use dip shampoo bars that are specifically formulated for colored hair, as they are sulfate-free and gentle on your hair, helping to keep your color looking bold and beautiful.
Fahrenheit 450: Why your heat-styling tools should never exceed 450 degrees
We all know that Fahrenheit 451 tells the story of Guy Montag and his transformation from a book-burning fireman to a book-reading rebel. But we're here to chat about Dip's imaginary prequel: Fahrenheit 450 --a made up story also about heat, and how to still be a rebel & unbottle your routine :) You know what they say, if you can't stand the heat, get out of the styling chair. Honestly, that is the worst advice ever because high heat from your styling tools can do some serious damage to your hair, leaving it dry, brittle, and lifeless. That's right, folks. If you're not careful, you could end up with a head full of frizzled (or is it frazzled?) hair.
What Do Sharks and Olives Have in Common?
There is Squalene and then there is Squalane. There’s a difference. Squalene is maybe the cosmetic industry’s most controversial ingredient at the moment and that’s because it’s possibly one of the deadly as well. Squalene is an oil that comes from the liver of a shark. There are roughly 2.7 million sharks killed per year solely for this ingredient and it’s contributing to the endangerment of an entire species.
What is the best way to use the Dip conditioner bar for each hair type?
What is the best way to use the Dip conditioner bar for each hair type? Hey, what's up folks! It's Kate here, founder and Chief Detangler here at Dip. Some of you ask: How can the Dip conditioner bar work for all hair types?! Some of you ask: Don't I need special ingredients that are specific to my hair type? And to that I say, your hair is personal to YOU, but it isn't special. Hair is chemically similar between different hair types, so in my opinion, dividing our Dip shampoo and conditioner bars into different hair types would be just "marketing". Specifically, I'm gonna share some tips on how to use conditioner bars for different hair types.
Being a Sustainable Persian Business Owner: Celebrating Nowruz and the Cultural Significance of Hair
As a sustainable Persian business owner, Nowruz presents an excellent opportunity to reflect on our practices and ensure that we are operating in a way that is environmentally conscious and socially responsible. I'd like to share the importance of being a sustainable Persian business owner and how Nowruz ties into our cultural heritage as well as the role of hair in Persian history and how it has influenced Persian culture today. We learn through the tradition of Sizdah Bedar where families must gather outside: on this day fields, plains, parks and gardens are filled with families, old and young, who leave their homes to spend the day outdoors, preferably by a river or a stream. It is embedded in our culture that going outside is essential to our happiness & luck for the new year.
How to Choose the Best Conditioner Bar for Curly Hair and the Importance of Shopping Small to Reduce Your Carbon Footprint
"I have curly hair so a conditioner bar just won't work for me." We hear this over and over, yet our curly customers are our biggest advocates since the Dip conditioner bar can replace so many plastic bottled products including detangling sprays, leave in conditioners, hair masks, air-dry creams, curl creams, and deep conditioning masks. Conditioner bars have become increasingly popular as a sustainable alternative to traditional liquid conditioners. However, choosing the best conditioner bar for curly hair can be a daunting task... ...especially when you have a graveyard of conditioner bars that you've already tried and been disappointed by. Sound familiar? It usually does.
Dip In With Chaz Howard: Dip Model & Customer
You might recognize Chaz from our hair types page with his Type 4 curls. What you might not know is that Chaz was voted Best Hair in our High School growing up, and it's really not hard to see why. Just look at those curls! Dip: Was there one moment that triggered your move into being plastic free (or less plastic blind) Chaz: Yes, watching countless documentaries of sea animals being tangled in plastic waste, and worst. There’s this one video of a turtle that had a plastic straw stuck in its nose that has stayed with me for a long time. It was then when I made a conscious decision to do better.
What's your hair care attachment style?!
Don’t get me wrong, I love my hair. But when I know wash day is coming up, I mentally prepare myself. My hair texture requires a gentle hand and time to pre-poo, wash, condition (I leave it in for at least 30 minutes. . . I use this as a snack break), rinse, and style with my various curly creams and potions. I need to have a patient hand when detangling and a line-up of podcasts for the entire process.
Your Shampoo Bottles Are Not Causing The Ocean Plastic Problem. Here’s Why That Matters
Most shampoo bottles are landfill-bound, not ocean-bound, so be wary of marketing campaigns that automatically tie recycled plastic or plastic-free alternatives as “ocean-friendly”. You still need to consider all the plastic around the bottle too, including the plastic film used for palletized goods (cling film literally lasts a millennia before it degrades!) Our plastic problem goes way beyond what we throw out: it goes back to the amount of virgin plastic we create, the inefficiency of recycling the plastic we already have, and the “on-demand” consumeristic mindset that makes this type of throwaway plastic in such high demand.
Review Pollution & Why We Don't Participate in "Buying Authenticity"
We believe in an intelligent consumer. We think that people can sniff out that kind of inauthenticity a mile away now. As for us here at Dip? We just try to make really great products you want to tell your friends about. That real human connection–and all that gritty, “unsavory” parts that come with it–are what make it genuine. We don't pay for likes, reviews or any other inauthentic marketing. If that means we grow slower, then so be it. We are cool with that.
