It does condition really well but over time made my hair fall out in clumps in the shower :/
Overall, this is a good conditioner, but it isn't my favorite. It claims to reduce frizz and roughness, and let me tell you, that it does. But it doesn't actually seem to be super moisturizing, more like it just coats my hair to keep ot smooth, like most smoothing products. That's not to say it makes my hair feel greasy, or coated in product, just that it feels like it smooths my hair, and has a protective coating, but doesn't actually make it healthier. Kind of like vaseline vs real moisturizer. Sorry if that makes no sense, it's hard to explain. In short, it makes my hair look good, but I don't think it's really helping it. And issue number 2, the main one for me, is the fragrance. It's not a bad fragrance, but it's very strong and I'm sensitive to fragrance. That's completely a personal thing, I'm sure many will love the fragrance, but it's just too much for me. That's not why I'm knocking a lippie though, because that's just me. I just wanted to warn fellow sensitive-noses. The reason I knocked a lippie is because of what I stated earlier, this conditioner makes your hair look good, but it doesn't seem to moisturize it much or improve the overall health. But all in all, this is a good conditioner at a great price, certainly one of the best that the drugstore has to offer, but not my favorite.
Love this stuff! It is moisturizing without making my hair heavy, and leaves my hair feeling like silk. It does contain 'cones, but I have to say this is one of the only products with 'cones I've consistently used that doesn't make my hair look greasy and flat (I have loads of colored, superfine hair). I highly recommend this stuff, and I actually think it stacks up well to several higher end products for a mere fraction of the cost.
Update: This stuff gives me beautiful hair, but also an itchy scalp and zits on my hairline/scalp/face.
Original post: My hair is fine, curly and dry. If I use the wrong conditioner I end up with either appalling frizz on a bucket-load of grease on my head; both looks are pretty awful. I used to use Kerastase Lait Vital which I got online for about £12 - and just thought I would never get any real results from store-brands. Wrooonnnngggg ... Dove kicks the b*tts of all salon brands (and I've tried heaps). I cannot believe the results ... fantastic. Picked this bottle up for £2, only need a tiny amount and my hair feels, looks and smells a whole world better than it did with the Kerastase. I love you Dove!
My fav so far.Conditions just right, doesn't weigh my hair down and smells great. Couldn't ask for more at that price!!
I LOVE this stuff. I've purchased about 5 bottles of it. You know how us girls are, always buying new products looking for something better, convinced that it has to be out there... but I always come back to this conditioner. It smells delicious, makes my hair soft and manageable, and is very inexpensive too. If you're looking to try a new conditioner from the drugstore I highly recommend this one. It does what a conditioner should do- makes your hair soft, smooth and shiny. (I should also mention that it's great for detangling)
I wanted to love this based on the rave reviews, but I was disappointed. It's a nice conditioner, especially for the price, but doesn't provide enough moisture for my thick, dry, coarse, heat-damaged hair. Also, I broke out around my hairline within a few days of use. I like the shampoo and absolutely love the daily treatment conditioner from the same Dove line, so all is not lost, but I won't be repurchasing this conditioner.
Wow. This Dove shampoo plus conditioner is one of my new favorite! My hair used to be like a pyramid for two or three years because it was damaged from using mousse. I was so desperate to find a good product to save my frizzy hair, even buying bottles of expensive junk. Glad I had my guts to try it. After a week, my hair really went into place! It began having its usual body like being straight from roots and spiral-like curls in its tips. It was really a miracle! So satisfied. Will buy again. <3
I have fine hair although there's lots of it. However, my problem really is the front, where I have these sort of wannabe curls that only exist in that area while the rest of my hair is straight. And since my hair so fine these wannabe curls tend to look really out of control compared to rest of my hair. I also don't like to use time styling my hair, so I put my hopes to my conditioner.
I haven't tried any other Dove conditioner and only tried this one based on the reviews here. I have now used about a bottle and it seems to be a decent conditioner. It doesn't really add any shine that I notice but it has this smoothing effect. Not perfect, no, but the difference between this one and something that doesn't suit my hair is remarkable.
One thing I'd like to note is that I think this conditioner really works the best with its shampoo counterpart. For the price it's a really good combo.
Some people have told that the conditioner caused them breakouts. I have the exact opposite experience. While no miracle maker to my hair, my acne prone back has cleared up while I've used this Dove combo. I don't know why since there shouldn't be anything good in those silicone bombs but whatever, if my back likes them so be it. For the first time in years I'll be actually buyng the same products for the second time.
I really love this conditioner. It makes my hair so soft. I have repurchased and will continue to do so.
