According to Dove, 34-percent of women have ‘dry hair’. (It’s something you’re either born with or end up with as a result of over-processing.) Fortunately, if you’re one of them, there’s an array of hydrating hair products on the shelves and now Dove has joined the party with their Nourishing Oil Care range.
The new range uses ‘breakthrough technology’ to give your hair all the nourishing, hydrating, smoothing benefits of antioxidant-rich almond and coconut oil but without any of the grease. This is ‘cos Dove’s oil’s don’t sit about on the outside of your hair, coating it in a slick. Instead, they absorb deep into the shaft with just a thin surface film remaining on the outside to smooth down frizz. The range also contains high levels of Omega 9, a an essential fatty acid that, Dove says, will ‘deeply nourish and re-build the cellular structure of dry hair to repair surface roughness’.
Anyway, I’ve got the type of baby-fine hair that gets greasy fast and needs to be washed every single day. If not, I look like a total oil slick. This is why I was a bit nervy about trying out an oil-enriched line up. Still, I’ve been using Dove’s Nourishing Oil Care shampoo and conditioner for a while now and rather like it. They really aren’t talking kak when they say it doesn’t weigh down your hair or make it greasy. In fact, I could even step things up a little by using this guy:
The treatment conditioner’s even more ‘nourishing’ and this is something certain parts of my hair really needs due to being super-fine yet exposed to the damaging effects of highlights.
If I use this boy, my hair’s super easy to brush afterwards and pretty much gleams with health. The only down side is, as it’s a heavier formulation, my looks can look a leetle bit weighed down by the end of the day. As a result, I’ll leave this to someone with hair a bit drier than mine – chances are they’ll love it – and stick to Dove’s other Daily Treatment Conditioner, the one from their Damage Therapy range which I absolutely adore. (Somehow it manages to give my hair the exact amount of hydration that it needs and not one drop more.)
Overall, I’ve been really impressed with Dove’s hair care line up. I’ve never been a fan of their body products ‘cos, like I’ve said before, I’m the only girl in the world who doesn’t like the way Dove smells. Their hair care goodies, however, are the shizz.
If you’ve used any of them; let me know what you think in the comments section. Gushy love or fiery burning hatred, I want to hear your thoughts.
