Once again I’m having hair problems. This time I’m on the mission to find the right shampoo and conditioner. Today I’m reviewing the Dove shampoo and conditioner.
Well more specifically the Dove oxygen moisture shampoo and conditioner. I’ve always been a massive fan of the Dove range. For me, I personally think they can do no wrong. I never had a skin irritation or a bad reaction.
This could be due to how Dove have always been dubbed as being ‘perfect PH balanced’’. What this mean is how the skin react to soapy products. Any healthy skin has a PH score off between 4.5 – 5.5, keeping in mind this score – this where it can get a little confusing. When using traditional soapy products, their PH is about a 9 which make it too alkaline. But Dove ‘perfect PH balance’ products is estimated to be about a 7, which is consider a neutral level but still to alkaline.
It a little confusing to get your head around. You can read more about the PH levels and alkaline here. I remember back in primary school (about 20 odd years ago now – how scary!) doing a science experiment on Dove soap and looking into PH levels.
That little school project always stuck in my mind and that why I’ve always been more favorable to Dove products.
Over the past week I have been trying out this Dove shampoo and conditioner: Dove oxygen moisture.
Did you know? You do not have to choose between moisture and volume.
Oxygen &; Moisture is a new Dove generation using Oxyfusion Technology. This range, made with lightweight oxygen-fused conditioning ingredients, moisturises flat, limp hair while adding up to 95% more volume. * Our Shampoo instantly dissolves on your hair. It gently cleanses & moisturises every day, breathing life into fine, flat hair. Enjoy beautifully bouncy and moisturised hair, full of natural volume.
*Hair freshly washed with Dove Oxygen & Moisture shampoo versus sebum-treated hair.”
My first impression was that I really liked the packaging – it looks shiny and clean. As I mentioned many time before – I have thick long lumpy boring hair. It’s a lifetime mission to find the perfect hair products that’ll suit me.
This promise to breath oxygen into the hair and to give me 95% more volume. Big promises – so before using this I had high exaptation.
When you squeeze out the Dove shampoo and conditioner, you will see it almost a clear transparent colour and it doesn’t have a perfume smell either. Which is a blessing as I hate using perfumery shampoo and conditioner in my hair.
It lathers nicely in the hair – it doesn’t thicken up or get so bubbly it will then get into my eyes. I always wash my hair with two shampoo and then finish with a conditioner. A hairdresser once told me that the first shampoo gets rid of the dirt while the second actually clean the hair. It always stuck me that little piece of advice so that my washing hair routine.
Once I completed my washing hair routine, I rinsed it out and blow dried it. I always find my hair have somehow clamped together and got into a big knot. So I then have to spend 30 mins trying to brush out the knots.
Once I dried and brushed my hair, did I notice that 95% volume which was promised to me.
My answer is, yes I did. The Dove shampoo and conditioner cleanses my hair very well. It added that 95% volume and made my have a health shine. My hair after usage didn’t look flat or lumpy. I found my hair to also be more manageable.
Overall this is a great addition to the Dove shampoo and conditioner range. I think this suit all hair types and I think you will also be pleasantly surprised.
Try it today.
