ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., July 11, 2013 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ -- A case of the frizzies or limp locks can leave women downright cranky.

"Women are always asking me to unlock the secret to no more bad hair days," said Dove® Celebrity Stylist, Mark Townsend. "I know that the foundation to any great hair day starts when a woman chooses a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner that does not weigh hair down. Using a hair care system, like the NEW Dove® Daily Moisture formula, that delivers up to five times smoother hair, in just one wash**, nourishing hair from the inside out, or the NEW Dove® Intensive Repair formula, which provides smoothness and strength and prevents split ends and breakage, helps ensure that every strand is healthy-looking, shiny and full of life."

Dry, damaged, unmanageable and weighed down hair is a struggle many women face and for most, achieving beautifully smooth hair is a victory that can power their entire day. Recently, Dove® Hair conducted the Great Hair Day Survey*** to better understand how a woman's hair can impact her day and found the following:

Women are struggling everyday to tame their mane.

-- 70 percent of women have not found the solution on how to have a great hair day
-- 74 percent of women are always looking for new products to help their hair look great
-- On average, women use at least two products to tame a bad hair day

Bad hair days can cause "camera shy" moments.

-- 2 in 5 women have refused to be in photos on a bad hair day
-- With good hair on their side, 50 percent of women are more likely to post a picture of themselves on Facebook®

The power of a great hair day ...

-- 80 percent of women feel more confident on a great hair day compared to a bad one.
-- More than 90 percent agree that a great hair day can positively impact their whole day
-- Nearly 85 percent of women agree that everyday events like going out for dinner are better when they are having a great hair day

-- Tri-silicone technology in the NEW Dove® Daily Moisture Shampoo and NEW Dove® Intensive Repair Shampoo formulas is comprised of three different sized moisture molecules to provide exceptional moisturization.
-- Keratin Repair Actives in the NEW Dove® Intensive Repair formula work on the keratin already present in your hair, repairing proteins at the cellular level.
-- A unique Microsheet structure in the NEW Dove® Daily Moisture Conditioner and NEW Dove® Intensive Repair Conditioner formulas evenly distributes moisture ingredients to every strand of hair.
