let's review - Dove Nourishing Oil Care Conditioner

Em, you'll want to skip this post. 

So, y'all know that I have really curly hair. It's thick, sometimes unruly, often dry, and frequently frizzy. Despite all that? I'm definitely a curly girl. I think that I was probably 30ish when I finally figured out how to deal with my curls - and I've spent the past 11 years experimenting with nearly every shampoo/conditioner/styler on the market. So when Dove offered up conditioner samples to try, I raised my hand (sorry Em)...

Here's what Dove has to say about this conditioner - 

A unique blend with non-greasy natural almond and mineral oils that are so fine, they are rapidly absorbed to deeply nourish and replenish essential nutrients. It’s next generation nourishment for beautifully smooth, soft, shiny hair. 

They use a patented technology to repair & nourish dry hair. They describe the following - 

  • Fiber Active technology penetrates deep inside the hair strand, helping rebind damaged proteins (Intensive Repair and Color Repair only)
  • Patented Micromoisture Serum targets damage, repairing the surface of hair by sealing lifted cuticles 

A sidenote (for Em, or anyone else wondering why I'm not going green here) - I have a hard time with natural conditioners & styling products for my hair. My curls need serious silicones. I'm okay with that. I lean green in SO many other areas of my life. 

So, back to this conditioner - it gets a THUMBS UP from me. I'd definitely purchase it. A couple of key attributes for me - it rinses well, and it leaves my hair soft instead of heavy.
