Dry Shampoo -Dove -Refresh + Care Coconut & Hydration Dry Shampoo

I got a half size sample of this from a target sample box, i think, but I left it alone for several years. I am a daily hair washer, and I have personal reason for that, and so i never had any reason to use dry shampoo. Plus, the one dry shampoo i bought due to massive online raves (the Psst), I find it really gunky, made my hair almost sticky, and just overall made my hair feel grosser instead of less oily/cleaner.

but then, life happened, water heater broke, and i'm stuck without ability to wash my hair. Aarrrrrrrrg!!!!!

So i pulled this baby out because i realized I don't have a choice, and I was surprised at how well it worked. My one gripe is how strong it smelled. I don't know if it's a coconut scent, it smells pretty good but it's just so overwhelmingly strong that I feel like i was wearing a kind of powdery smelling cloying perfume all day. Not a fan of that (if it's a weaker scent i'd be fine, as it does smell good, but it's just too overwhelming).

In term of performance though, it made my hair a bit stickier/more textured (as most dry shampoo will), but once i get it worked in and brushed out a bit, i was surprised to note that from the outside, my hair looked clean, shiny, as if i totally washed it the night before. I did feel like i have to use a lot of it, but it might just be because I can't stand the feel of oily scalp at all, and so went kinda nuts at it. And i was also surprised to find that it really lasts the whole work day as well. I spray my scalp with in the morning, and my scalp doesn't start to feel oily until maybe 7 or 8 hours later. I also noticed that the longer i go without washing, the longer this keeps my scalp not oily, but i think it's a case of just the product building up on my scalp, blocking more oil production lol.

to be clear, this doesn't replace washing. Normally I can run my hand through my hair with minimal snag (my hair is super fine/thin/slippery/straight), but with this product in, it ends up being...dryer feeling, and my brush/hand gets stuck and I'd have to pull a lot more. I feel like i'm loosing a lot of hair due to not washing, but eh, life is life, shit happens. It does add a lot more texture to my hair, and volume - i'm essentially adding powder to clump up my hair, so that it props eachother up. I like volume but i honestly dislike the idea of putting products in my hair to achieve that. Good news is, as long as I don't think about it/touch my hair, it feels clean/normal enough. It's only if i try to run my hand through my hair/bangs that i experience that "ugh why does it feel like i put hairspray" feeling.

This thing is also incredibly cheap as well. I saw there's an unscented version, i'd be willing to buy/try it if it performs as well as the coconut scented one.

using this product made me realize that I MIGHT be able to maybe wash my hair every other day instead of every day but...we'll see i guess lol



Lotions/ Creams -Dove -baby lotion

I went out to buy this lotion because I have sensitive skin. This works better than most hand lotions out there! It's non-sticky and glides smoothly as a liquid.

Gels/Soaps -Dove -Beauty Bar

Although for most people this is generally fine to use on the face, personally I find it far too drying (along with every facial soap I've ever tried including Clinique's). Instead I use this as a hand soap as I find most hand washes, including Molton Brown leave my hands very dry (due to SLS).
Dove lathers up nicely, cleanses well and rinses off easily. I keep a bar next to my kitchen sink and one in the washroom too.
The only thing I dislike is the fragrance - which although 'clean' and not unpleasant in any way, is still VERY strong to the point of being overpowering. If it wasn't for that I'd have given it 5 lippies.
Nevertheless this costs just a fraction of the price of 'designer' hand washes and doesn't contain SLS which is reason enough for me to keep re-purchasing.

Hi!
I've tried the shower gels,foams and i said to give it a go to shower cream.
The packaging is simple,white with blue details.
I thought that being a cream it will be more moisturizing,but I didn't felt anything.
Generally,Dove products are good,but I dodn't like this one.Shower creams are not for me.


Conditioner -Dove -Advanced Moisture Conditioner

My H grabbed this at Costco thinking it was shampoo so I naturally said I’d use it up. I really don’t like it at all. My hair is thin with grey that has to be conditioned or it gets wild and frizzy. My hair doesn’t feel softer or conditioned after using this product. I’ve noticed a lot of greys sticking up since I started using this even after using styling creme, conditioning spray AND a bit of pomade which normally doesn’t happen so that tells me it’s not cutting it. DNW Einstein hair! It’s thin, watery and has an odd feeling like it’s drying rather than emollient. I can usually make do with an off product and use it up but am going to have to toss this one out.

If I had to name positives I’d say it smells okay and def won’t make one’s hair greasy or weighted down. But it’s not a great conditioner for my needs. It’s more like a creme rinse than actual conditioner imo so if that’s what you need you may like this stuff.
