I have a confession to make… I’m a bit of a snob when it comes to my hair and I prefer to spend a little (sometimes a lot) more on salon products, as apposed to those you can get for half the price at the supermarket. My hair is straight, quite long and has no natural “bounce”, so when I use products that are too rich (often the case with supermarket ranges) they end up causing too much buildup, which leaves my hair very greasy and dull even after I’ve just washed it.
Because my hair is also so fine, it often needs treatment to moisturize and de-tangle, but that for me just means more product build up in my hair! Arhh! So, when I received Dove’s Nourishing Oil Care Shampoo to review, I was instantly intrigued by these words “a shampoo with WEIGHTLESS nutri-oils”. They even put the words “WEIGHTLESS” in capital letters, which is exactly what I am looking for in a shampoo!
Putting my hair snobbery on hold, I decided to give it a bash. I’ve always loved Dove soap and their moisturizers and body washes are great, so I wanted to see how their shampoo measures up. Well, I can say that I love this shampoo and I’ve been using it for the last few weeks. It gives my hair beautiful shine and it adds a li’l bounce, so it looks a lot healthier and doesn’t look dry or frizzy.
The formula smells great in the shower and it leaves my hair smelling fabulous too! Although I normally have to use loads of conditioner through the lengths of my hair just so that I am able to brush it -yes, that’s how knotty it gets-, I found that I could easily get away with using less conditioner and still being able to manage my hair when shampooing with Dove’s Nourishing Oil Care Shampoo. The conditioner I’ve been using is also from Dove, from their new range Dove Damage Therapy.
I can happily say that I have finally found a “supermarket” product that I would definitely recommend and one that will stay on my monthly shopping list.
