The past few weeks months I’ve been in love with the Dove Hair Therapy Nutritive Solutions* Shampoo and Conditioner. It’s not every day that you hear people praising a shampoo and conditioner duo from the supermarket. You always hear of these speciality or hair salon brand products that are the ‘bee’s knees’, but honestly, who has all of that mulla to fork out all of the time? I think that price doesn’t always speak quality and some of the best finds are actually really affordable and accessible. Let’s talk about these goodies in today’s post!
Of course, here comes a bit of background information about my hair! I have a pretty oily scalp and I have tried to do the whole – wash my hair every couple of days, but it doesn’t work. I’ve also tried to force my hair out of its oily habits by not washing it every day, but honestly I look and feel so disgusting that it just isn’t possible for me. In other words, I wash my hair every day.
Moving onto the products! Appearance wise, the formula for both the shampoo and conditioner are just plain white. No fancy colours going on here. The scent is a little bit masculine, fresh and has a teeny sweet twist, which I noticed a bit more with the conditioner.
The shampoo lathers extremely well and a little amount definitely goes a long way. It leaves my hair feeling really clean but not to the point where it feels stripped.
Usually, when I use conditioners, I opt for a thicker formula or hair mask. This conditioner was interesting for me because it was a thinner consistency to that I’m used to. Instructions on the back suggested leaving it on for 1 to 3 minutes, so I left it on for the full three. When I washed it out, wow, it was actually incredibly smooth. The point of smooth where you’d think that I actually just used a really thick smoothing mask for 10 minutes.
Hopping out of the shower and doing my usual hair routine, I reached for my tangle teezer and my hair had a few knots, but nothing intense. I then dried my hair and my hair was not sticky or oily in the appearance at all. There was also barely any frizz.
Where the biggest surprise of all with this product duo is that… wait for it. My boyfriend complimented me and said my hair looked extra shiny and healthy… Pardon!? I hadn’t told him that I was trialling anything new and he noticed straight away. I think that’s definitely made good use of the expression of ‘the proof is in the pudding’ – right!?
So would I repurchase these guys!? I definitely would. They don’t come with a heavy price tag, they’re accessible and they work really well!
