Sent from a-Dove...

Firstly, sorry for the woeful title, I thought I'd attempt clever (I'm not really sorry, I laughed at my play on words...) Secondly, Dove's new nourishing oil care range really is heavenly.

Does it do what it promises?
'Dove's unique nourishing care system containing weightless nautral almond and coconut oils, made of molecules so fine they are rapidly absorbed to deeply nourish and replenish essential nutrients'
I have to say, Dove have got the formulation right, it doesn't weigh your hair down. I have been using the shampoo & conditioner and have found my hair a lot smoother and easier to roughly blow dry without needing a lot of styling the next day (being a lazy girl after the gym! - my arms hurt, I can't do a proper blow dry)
It also promises that it smoothes up to 100% roughness & controls frizz. My hair is just below shoulder, and medium/thick with a natural wave, I haven't got the worst case of frizzy hair but I have definitely noticed a difference with overall styling. With the winter weather arriving I think this would be a great addition to your haircare routine.

Would I get it again?
Yes. For around £5.88 for the shampoo (250ml) & conditioner (200ml) it's good value for the result. You don't need to use a lot to build a good lather, and the conditioner is thick and leaves hair feeling soft and manageable. I'm still using mine and that's after a week and washing 3/4 times a week.

Anything else to say?
The packaging is sleek and I like the colouring.  There is also a nourishing intensive treatment if your hair really needs a treat. I'm planning a bit of a change for my hair soon so will be using this to give my hair a treat.
A few people have commented on the condition of my hair - saying my locks look shiny and asking if I've coloured my hair. So it goes to show Dove is onto a winner! I'm more than happy.
Have you tried this range? Do you suffer with frizz?


  1. I've got a sample of this somewhere, must try it! x

  3. I've always been a fan of dove body products so I might have to give their hair products a try! x hivenn

  4. I always love Dove products but have never tried their hair products, will check it out next time i'm at the shops. (ps. did you have a good time at the Look Show?) x

  5. I've only tried a colour protecting shampoo which didn't suit my hair at all, which is a shame because their skincare is lovely. x

  6. Kel, I love the new layout! I liked the black but this is so fresh and funky :)
