Today we have a review of DOVE conditioner that I picked from Nakumatt Supermarket after lusting for it for almost a year. I almost picked it a couple of times, just that it has silicones which I am not too big on. Nonetheless, I got it and tried it. My first reaction was actually, “why have I never tried this before?”… It is from the nutritive solutions range which is a new line by Dove. It cost 300 kshs which is about $3 for 200ml. I would sy the pricing is okay… not too much.
So it promises to “help boost the volume of fine hair leaving it looking thicker fuller and beautifully bouncy”. The instructions say that you use it after shampooing and apply from mid length to the tips/ ends of the hair and leave it for 1 minute then rinse it off.
I however purposed to use this particular conditioner as a deep conditioner. So after wash day, I applied the conditioner mixing it with a bit of the Mikalla conditioner that I talked about in this post and let it sit on my hair for about 20 minutes while I continued showering. A little sure goes a long way. Ensure your strands are well coated. I then rinsed it out and boy wasn’t I pleased. My hair was so moisturised, and soft to touch. I’m not so sure about the volume though, I think it worked but that could just be in my head.
My verdict: I think the price point is okay,its quite affordable and economical. The scent is very showery and fresh, not too much. It is definitely not a natural smell. The consistency is on the heavier side… and if you apply on the back of your hand it feels very moisturising. it has great slip for detangling. The ingredients though, have a lot of words that you can’t pronounce… which isn’t a nice thing. Otherwise it is a lovely product. I’m not too sure I would repurchase it just yet!!
Ps: If you are a co-washer or anti-shampoo then I wouldn’t recommend this as your go to product. It has silicones!! (see the ingredient list here)
Love and love
