I received this as a Bzz Agent & tried it out last night. My first thoughts were that it wasn't as thick as some of the conditioners I've tried & my second thought was the scent! I'm not overly sensitive to scents but this had a pretty over-powering smell to it. No unpleasant - but just strong.
Well, this morning I woke up & my hair was smooth & shiny & untangled. I don't know about the "fiber active" part of the claim, but it seems to work pretty well as a moisturizing, smoothing conditioner. I'd recommend this to anyone who needs smoother, less-frizzy hair without dullness or too much weighing-down.
Oh, and the scent! It was over-powering in the tube, but now my hair smells delightfully perfumed! Maybe it needed to be that strong for it to last.
The new Dove Daily Treatment Conditioner, Intensive Repair is supposed to be a treatment and conditioner in one. The treatment portion contains fiber actives which penetrate porous hair to help reconstruct from within while the conditioner has micro moisture serum to help strengthen and nourish the hair shaft. It performed reasonably well on my dry, damaged, color-treated hair. After shampooing and conditioning with the product, my hair felt smooth and moisturized. It was easy to comb out and most importantly, didn't feel too heavily coated (looking at you Pantene). As a result, it did retain some body after styling. It does have some 'cones in it but they're not too prominent on the ingredient list. I'll try it a few more times to see how it performs cumulatively, but so far it's a pretty good conditioner for damaged hair. I received a sample as a Bzz Agent but I believe the price I've seen for the product is reasonable. Would definitely re-purchase.
I am really impressed with this. First off, I received this in a kit in the mail because I'm a buzz agent (I get to try cool stuff and give feedback). I know Dove is a reasonably priced product available in drug stores but the results I got are comparable to the high end salon products I buy! No kidding! I can't stop feeling my hair, it's so soft and smooth without being flat. And it smells so good. Why am I spending so much money on products when I can get the same results, if not better with this?! So far I've only tried the intensive repair conditioner in this new line but I wanna try the 'poo and leave-in also!
I bought the new Intensive Repair Conditioner (in the bottle, not the tube) first, loved it, and bought this thinking it would be an even better version of that; unfortunately, it's not. I have no idea why, but this product doesn't do as much for my hair as the regular conditioner version does. If I need super-intense conditioning I'll stick to my Pantene treatment.
This stuff is pretty much amazing.
I have bleached platinum blonde hair and i naturally have a dark dark brown color so I'm constantly lightening my hair. I use this in the shower and as a leave-in conditioner and it makes my hair feel totally smooth with dramatically less breakage.
This works well on my long, thick, coarse hair. It really get the tangles out in the shower, and smooths out the frizz. It smells nice, too. I like how the cap is on the bottom so you don't have to whack the bottle. It was $4 at Walgreens, but they give you $4 in Register Rewards this week.
