Latest Dove contest?... can't see any new contest on indiblogger?
it's a great hamper from Dove... check http://mythreeangels.wordpress.com/2011/10/14/dove-says-hello/
HERE'S THE LINK MY FRIEND,
Thanks @Pramod... but this link is certainly not there on the Home page of indiblogger... when you click on the Dove masthead-ad, it takes you to the registration page etc...
Yes, so we again have ipads to fight for... wonder how Navin Bajaj is going to feel. No tech reviews this time. :)
Just discovered that i am able to reach the contest page from 'trending topics'...
That is where the contest page gets updated first, even before being updated on the home page, I think.
As a shareholder of the company it is not fair on my part to take part in the contest So i am staying out of the contest, wishing all the contestants all the best. Take care of your hair.....use DOVE daily Lolz
Buddy that is one of lame excuse, i don t wanna to particpate in hair raising competition, i am sure one more controversy will crop up. Being a female meet, let them take away the prizes lol.
@ DS professionally speaking one should not participate if you have stake in the company or be connected as an employee.
Shareholder or no shareholder, participation is the key. Why don't you just mention at the end, I don't want to take part in the competition - & write a good piece of content.
@ Pramod That was a good joke. I think even males need to take care of their hair if it shouldn't become a play area for mini cars. :-)
I use Dove too P, but they (people who attended dove meet) must have got experts advise which they will rant in their posts!!!
Anyways, All the Best to all
I am going to participate. Let me be honest here. I love the prizes they have announced..so let me try my blogging skills however good or bad it is and hope against hope that I might actually get a hand on one of those Yes yes yes..greed dripping down.
But, I have a bigger reason to write..firstly to thank them that they sent the hamper and secondly I have been using Dove for quite sometime and I love their hair care range, so atleast this is something I can actually write on with 'hands on'..uhh..nah 'hair on' experience.
And yes, I am not going to crib after the results. After all, it is just a contest
All the best guys and girls..
Dove was intelligent enough to gift something before the start of the contest itself. :-)
righto Ranjith, this was a laudable move by dove.
@ Pramodji: Thanks Pramodji :) All the best to you too:)
@ Ranjith: Thanks Ranjith. All the best :)
@ DS: Thanks DS. So you are going to write about your curly locks? :)
@ Arti : He he..yeah hair on experience :) Thanks :) All the best to you too :)
BowTie too want to participate but that blog of mine is pending approval :(
Pooja ji, mail at this id, and I hope it will be resolved soon.
bow tie ko bhi best of luck,
@ DS and Pramodji:Thanks :) BowTie got approved. But I realised I forgot to give Tie some hair Lets see..Bow still has some hair..so I think I can come up with something:)
Hmm.. tough topic! but I'm going to participate..!
when is the last date for submitting entries?
Itna tem mat lagao... aisa na ho ke jitna tha, usme se bhi npej-purje nikal ke bhej de!!
@ Pramod Be careful! Something might be keeping an eye on your brain that is undergoing extra polishing.
duniya naam pe marti hai, DS, main akela nai,
Guys let me write something here itself rather than participating in the contest. I always found my hair is very delicate, so it needed the care and attention. What i discovered is ultimately to have a shampoo bath, i kept changing shampoo. One day i found a economical shampoo packaged neatly in a transperant bottle, well after few days i found my hair loss. It was primarily due to this shampoo, which i vowed not to use it again in my life time, instead i used it to wash my car Lolz. Next i experimented with clinic and sunsilk it was okies performing shampoo. Using shampoo daily can be habit forming too, so i never leave it to soak for long time lest it chemically damages the hair roots. Finally i discovered Dove, dialy care and started using it. Now i need not fear for loosing my hair.
I still did not get the gift hamper. I registered on 15th of this month.
All the best Arti. I think that you can write something about hair care while during a journey....
I think will just sit back and enjoy reading about all your bad hair days
@Pramodji Your humility is great... You are one of the finest writers I know of, coz you write from the heart and that is certainly not an easy thing to do. All the best to you and to Ranjith also.. May both of you win
I should have read the rules properly. I though that we were being asked tips to maintain good hair... but now I realised that it was asking what I do and not what can be done.
Looks difficult for I do nothing more than take a head bath daily with clinic plus ( .... not dove ) and then nourish it with parachute oil ( its again not dove )
I think that I will have to take a photograph of someone's else's hair rather than mine.
@ Arti Thank you and hope that I win atleast this time. I am thinking of devoting an entire day to try Dove's haircare products..... on someone else's hair...
All the best to all the participants. Hope that the results do not ignite another fierce discussion.
bhai, cheers, let's hope for the best.
Its diwali time, chances of some crackers igniting here and there are quite high :P
Hope IndiBlogger & Dove will be more cautious this time to pick the winners, after the Samsung Galaxy incident ;)
Guys tips for hair maintainence includes combing daily at least 100 strokes adviced otherwise one will get bald or get dandruff problem. Oiling once hair and massaging too is another tip. Using Shikakkai powder too is healthy. Finally comes DOVE
wow, umesh ji, 100 strokes, by jove, i remember my mother combing my hair as a child, I seldom use comb, pracrically, never. just a little push to them backwards from my hand. that's all. and at the age of 48 all hair are shining black. no whites.
never use oil too.
#DoveSpa also had to mail the hair style coupons but didnt hear frm them yet..thts wht being told at dove bloggers meet...but seems it was a # Joke!
mail them at this id, I think it will be resolved soon.
WOW ! GREAT CONTEST.I REALLY LOVE DOVE SHAMPOO,SO SOFT AND SILKY..
lmao! the guyd seem more interested than the girls! oooohhh...now i get it! they have got ipads for prizes! all the best!
Thank Gos, you had not thought of releasing your love dove story in fifteen parts. What happened to the second and fourth parts?
Thanks, Pramod, Ranjith, DS, Pooja, Kalpith. I hope all your comments and replies on my forum post teaser count as interaction and I already have 10/10 for interaction on all my 5 blog entries.
@Ranjith - The second and fourth parts are being nurtured and nourished inside a bottle of Dove shampoo and will come forth soon.
ahaa, @the fool, all braced up this time, great ideas nurturing in the bottle. best of luck to you.
"The contest will be judged on creativity, originality and INTERACTION."
does this ('interaction') mean that the 'Likes' 'Tweets' and 'Shares' will also be considered?
interaction looks like the weightage on comments exchanged etc. but this is just my thought. official clarification awaited.
I think that Interaction could also mean the level of interest we have in replying to the comments received.... interaction with the readers...
well, if 'interaction' means the social popularity and/or comments then its a 'disappointing condition' for some people. Not everyone's blog is popular enough to get hundereds of comments and 'likes'. And it does not mean he/she is not a good blogger!!
@DS, point to be noted is interaction word has been added in this contest only. Previous ones, they just asked quality and relevance. or likes, this point raised by kalpit has to be thought & acted upon with importance.
If this is so! It's a bad, bad thing for some new bloggers like me, having low visitors and 'interaction' level :(
may be DS, lets hope for the best.
What DS says is right I think. They did have that word interaction.
I just check Pri's blog..the post that won.. No formatting done, grammar wrong at several places, is that how you choose a winning post?
I am not just disappointed because I did not win.My problem is the basis on which you choose a winning post! these are basic things that one must look , esp. into a BLOG!
Kajal ji, waiting for your post, very little time left now
Its such a nice place to share and laugh at the comments ...Both mens and womens have hairs :)..so dove is open for all ...for the starting few commensts
@Rajnith people with bald head loves hair more than the one having nice hair :P
@Kalpith - But that is a one way street. However we love our deceased ones, they can't love us back.
The only thing that those people can do is to hope that it will love them back in their next life.
