Reema was from Kerala but her family had settled in Mumbai since she was born. She was a mumbaikar from any means but the trade mark of being from Kerala was long and thick hair which was missing in her. Whenever she used to visit her cousins back in Kerala she used to get pissed off. They all had thick, long and curly hair while she had thin hair that was medium dense but Mumbai water had damaged it. She grew up hating her hair and always used to cut her hair very short so that she doesn't have to undergo the trauma of its maintenance. She had read about Rapunzel and her beautiful locks of hair but she felt sad since she knew she wouldn't have that.
She was now in Junior college and she was one of the beautiful girls in her college. With her long stature and perfect figure she could have been an eye candy for all the guys. The only missing in her was her thin hair, only if she had a voluminous thick hair.. she used to think about this everyday but didn't really do anything. She and Minu were good friends and they used to hate a girl gang consisting of two brats - Rupal and Saloni. They both were from affluent family and always used to wear designer clothes and had perfectly straight hair that they used to take care of. One day there was a beauty contest announced in the college and undoubtedly everyone thought the winner would be either Rupal or Saloni. Their arrogance was increasing day by day and they had started harressing other girls in the college by passing comments on their dressing sense or hair. One day, in a science laboratory they challenged Reema and Minu to take part in the contest and try to at least achieve the runners up position.
Reema was confident that she can be a contestant but she knew about her hair so she encouraged Minu to participate in that. However, there were 3 months left for the contest and they had ample time. They decided to go to a hair stylist and Minu took all the tips from the stylist. After they finished their talk, the stylist gave a look to Reema and asked her why she is not participating. She told him about her frizzy hair which was hard to maintain and not at all beautiful as compared to other girls. But the stylist told her that she can work on her hair and she knows about Dove's haircare range and she was sure that something can come to her rescue. Reema was sure that nothing will work because she had tried most of the good brands and gave up the hope that she can have beautiful thick and curly hair like her cousins. But she gave a chance to her stylist who started working on her hair.
She started applying Dove's damage repair conditioner and shampoo which had patented micro moisture serum and fiber actives that internally reconstructed hair and prevented split ends. Her hair started looking like full of lusture and volume. Her hair was getting damaged on a daily basis, main reason was mumbai's pollution and also Reema was trying all new beauty products that had strong chemicals which were acting against the natural hair nutrition. She met the stylist after couple of weeks and told her how good she was feeling about this new damage repair solution. Her stylist told her that this new range was formulated with Micro Moisture serum that identifies the areas of damage and penetrates deep into the roots in order to restore and strengthen it from inside out. The contest was approaching and just a week before the contest when Rupal saw Reema's hair she started feeling jealous and in order to spoil her hair she spilled a plate full of pasta and soup on her hair. Reema went to the ladies room and she cried seeing her hair. She lost the hope of winning in the contest since her hair got damaged due to the food.
She ran to her stylist who recommended her to use the newest product in that range called 'Dove damage therapy overnight treatment', this was so powerful that it delivers the one month's worth of protein loss in one night and helps to restore hair strength and resilience while she slept. With this new range of Dove Intensive care products she almost forgot about her dull, frizzy hair that looked lifeless and it was indeed solution to her damaged hair problem.
She went to the beauty contest with utmost pride and she was happy that her hair which had grown a little longer was looking very healthy and she could style it the way she wanted. When everyone asked her about her newly evolved hair she proudly talked about 'Dove' and how it rescued her in the last minute. Everyone had seen this miracle happening in front of their eyes so they didn't hesitate to try out this product.
