When I came to stay at my mums a couple of weeks ago I of course bought along my own shampoo and conditioner however Mum liked mine and used it as well and so she went out and replaced it with this for us to use when mine was running low.
I personally love the Dove brand so I was pleased to see a Dove shampoo and conditioner in the bathroom and this was one I had never tried before.
This shampoo comes in a mainly white coloured plastic and tall bottle which has a flip top lid to the top of it concealing a small hole and then on the front of it in dark blue, white and gold lettering we are clearly told that it is 'New' Dove 'Nutritive Solutions' Daily Care Shampoo 'With pro-Moisture Complex', and that it 'Penetrates to a cellular level. Lightweight formula restores smoothness & shine without weighing hair down' and then on the back of the bottle other information listed includes being told a bit about the product and directions for use are given, the ingredients are listed, the size is stated (which in this case is 250ml), we are told that once opened to use the shampoo up within 12 months of doing so and contact details for the manufacturer are clearly stated. Nice quality packaging this is and suitable for either of the sexes to buy!
This shampoo is white in colour and rather thick in its consistency and it has a sort of light fruity but none distinctive aroma to it...its just light, pleasant and subtle really. A little of this goes a very long way indeed even on my below shoulder length hair and me, I just get a very small blob and massage it into my damp/wet hair and rinse and then repeat.
I really do like this shampoo. Its got a nice fragrance to it, cleans my hair and I'm happy to use this on a daily basis. Not only does it cleanse my hair thoroughly but it leaves it smelling fresh for a good few hours and leaves my hair feeling strong and looking nicely shiny and my hair is easier to deal with too as it seems to calm my usual frizz right down, help to blend in my split ends into my style and never upsets my usually greasy roots!
This is a really nice daily shampoo and I will be certainly buying this myself. My Mum got our bottle and the matching conditioner for a pound a bottle in out local Poundland store but Google if interested!

Dove's modus operandi is natural beauty and kindness to skin, and the Dove shampoo range reflects that. Dove Daily Care Shampoo is an all round shampoo marketed at normal hair designed to keep it shiny, soft and clean with no irritation.
**Price and Availability**
Dove Daily Care Shampoo has an RRP of £2.29 and generally when not on offer in the supermarkets and chemist does retail on or around this price. I, however, found Dove Daily Care Shampoo in Poundland and therefore paid just £1 for it, a huge saving. So though it is widely available I would highly recommend trying the pound and discount shops first because you're getting it at cheaper than a buy one get one free price.
Dove Daily Care Shampoo comes in a fairly plain white bottle with the Dove logo on the front and the Daily Care Shampoo also. It's a top up bottle and has a flip top lid.
The shampoo is creamy and white and ever so slightly pearlised. It has a very fresh and clean scent, not perfumed as such. It lathers up into a soapy, not foamy lather on the hair, using only a small palmful of shampoo on wet hair. It washes and rinses well and overall feels nice to use, leaving the hair squeaky clean and fresh smelling. You can follow on with a conditioner if you need to, or not.
Unfortunately within 30 minutes of using Dove Daily Care Shampoo I had a red rash around my hairline and where my hair rested on my neck. It was very itchy and I suspected it to be an allergic reaction but at first tried changing my washing powder until it was obvious two washes later that it was indeed the shampoo. In the end my scalp became inflamed and itchy, eventually flaking like dandruff. I went to the doctor and was advised to use Neutrogena T-Gel which soothed it.
So even though Dove is primarily marketed as kind to skin it was quite the opposite for me though I have never had a problem with other Dove products. On speaking to a few of my colleagues some of them also react to Dove Daily Care Shampoo so for me I certainly won't be using it again or any of the shampoos in the range and I can't really recommend it and especially not to anyone who has sensitive skin as it made me look awful and cost me nearly £10 in treatments to sort out. A shame.
This was promising at first with a very bad outcome. I can only award Dove Daily Care Shampoo 1 out of 5 based on my own personal experience. It went in the bin! I cannot recommend it at all.
As we were going on holiday a couple of weeks ago, my partner and I went shopping for a few smellies one of which was a bottle of shampoo and a bottle of conditioner. Although we already had a large bottle of Tresemme sat on the side of the bath we decided that it was far too big and heavy to be packed into a suitcase and so sought a smaller more compact bottle for everyday use whilst we were away. Although I have tried Dove moisturiser and deodorant in the past I had yet to try their shampoo and so we opted for a bottle of Dove Daily Care Shampoo and the related conditioner.
This shampoo is packaged rather classically in my opinion, in a white slightly shimmery bottle which is illustrated with the test 'Dove Hair Therapy' for 'normal' hair and a splattering of text in a blue text box telling you that this shampoo is for daily care and contains micro moisture serum. On the back of the bottle we are told that this shampoo makes hair 'so smooth you can't stop touching it' along with the directions for use. This bottle stands upright and contains a white flip top cap for easy use when in the shower and contains 250ml of shampoo.
Once opened, the smell of the shampoo is quite delicious in my opinion. Although difficult to describe I would say that the shampoo has a strongly clean smell with a very soft fruity fragrance. The shampoo is white in colour and is of a medium consistency which isn't too runny but creates a good lather nonetheless.
To use Dove recommend that the shampoo is applied to wet hair, lathered and then rinsed. I generally find that a 50p dollop of shampoo is more than adequate for my shoulder length hair. The shampoo lathers easily in my experience and creates a lovely clean scent that stays in my hair all day after use. It rinses easily out of my hair and after following with the related conditioner I was really pleased with the results. Although my hair cannot be described as thick there is still quite a lot of it and I generally find that it can feel weighed down by certain shampoos. This shampoo however left my hair feeling soft and nourished as well as having a healthy bounce and shine. When left for a couple of days my hair still looked clean in between washes, however as I enjoyed the smell of this shampoo so much I did use it pretty much everyday while we were away.
We bought this shampoo from our local Wilkinsons and paid just £1 for it. However a look around reveals it can generally be bought for around the £1 - £2 mark depending on where it's bought. I consider this a bargain considering the way it made my hair feel and look and will certainly be buying this shampoo again. As a result this product comes highly recommended and will be scoring an excellent five stars from me.
Thanks for reading! x
I tend to chop and change my shampoo and conditioner almost every time I buy a new bottle. I use Alberto Balsam Raspberry most, because it is a good range and is cheap, but another of my favourites is the Dove Daily Care range.
The Daily Care Shampoo comes in a white bottle with a flip top lid. The lid is on the top of the bottle, and due to the shape you can't stand the bottle on its head when you're getting to the end - but fortunately this isn't a problem with this shampoo. Although it is by no means particularly runny, it does flow well so you just need to give the bottle a bit of a shake and you can get every last bit out.
The shampoo itself is white, that kind of slightly pearly white which is a fairly standard colour for shampoo. As it does have a very runny consistency, when you squeeze it out into your hand it doesn't run off when you're closing the bottle before applying the shampoo to your hair.
I have very long fine hair, but I don't need to use a huge amount of the Dove Daily Care shampoo. It lathers up quickly and easily, and it produces a lot of lather. I really like this in a shampoo, as it makes me feel that I'm giving my hair a really thorough clean. Despite the large amounts of lather, it rinses out really easily and doesn't require extra time or effort to get it all out of my hair. The fragrance of the shampoo isn't particularly identifiable - it isn't fruity or floral. I would describe it as a nice clean soapy smell, which isn't overpowering but does leave me hair smelling nice and clean.
As a rule I always use this shampoo along with the Dove Daily Care Conditioner, which is what dictates the condition of my hair once dry, but I have used it a few times without conditioner. It does leave my hair a bit too squeaky clean, and prone to tugginess without conditioner, but it is a bit better than many shampoos when used on its own - my hair can be managed, and isn't quite so static and flyaway as other shampoos make it if I don't use them with conditioner.
I really like the Dove Daily Care Shampoo - it leaves my hair clean, soft and smelling nice, and is pleasant to use. As the regular price tends to be about £2.30, over £1 more than Alberto Balsam, my purse usually wins and I only buy Dove when it's on special offer.
I first came across the new improved Dove haircare range in 2010 and have loved it ever since! One of my favourites from the range is the Daily Care shampoo and conditioner. So here is my review for Dove Daily Care Shampoo:
1. The Smell
For me this is one of the most important things when choosing a shampoo and conditioner. When I first discovered this new range, I expected it to have the typical clean, soapy Dove smell so I was surprised when I smelt it for the first time. It smells really fresh, quite tropical and light. It really is lovely! Smell gets 5 stars from me.
2. The Lather
Well the lather of this is quite impressive. It lathers really quickly and easily and it is incredibly thick, rich and the wonderful smell fills the whole bathroom. I'm always a little sad when the time comes to wash it out! It rinses out really easily too and I am left with a squeaky clean and can feel how soft my hair already is. Ahhh it's lovely. Lather gets 5 stars from me without a doubt!
3. The Result
Firstly I must mention that I always follow a shampoo up with its matching conditioner and I always leave my hair to dry naturally. I can safely say that this combined with the conditioner leaves my long, thick, curly hair so so soft and so shiny, as well as feeling totally weightless. It has also improved the condition of my dry, split ends and oily roots. I have never experienced an itchy scalp after using this either. It's absolutely brilliant and it still surprises me to this day how amazing my hair feels after using this really cheap shampoo and conditioner for normal hair! Result gets 5 stars from me!
Overall this is a fantastic shampoo for any hair type and at around £2.50 (or cheaper if you get it on offer which it is a lot of the time) for a 250ml bottle, it's worth a shot!
Although at first I was put off by the price of this shampoo, I found that it was worth the price. The main thing I enjoyed about this shampoo was the smell, which was very fresh and clean. It smelled like other dove products- you make think this strange to want to have hair smelling of dove products but it was a most enjoyable smell, as well as the smell lasting for a couple of days, making your hair have that "just washed feeling" for more than a few hours. The shampoo also made my hair considerably softer, which meant that I was spending less time on leaving the conditioner in, which is ideal as who has time to leave conditioner in their hair for hours these days?! Due to the shampoo leaving my hair so silky soft, I also found that I saved money from having softening treatments at the hairdressers, which overall made this shampoo a value for money purchase.
I am not particulaurly particular about my haircare choices. Occasionally I splash out on something more expensive, but most of the time I just but whatever is on special offer, although I tend to pick mid-range brands (sort of Marks and Spencer of hair care).
Dove is a one of these and the Daily Care shampoo is a perfect example of a good, no-frills, everyday shampoo that does just what it says on the tin.
It comes in a reasonably sleek bottle, easy to use even one-handed and in a normally-sized bottle. I don't know about others, but I don't like those enormous shampoo bottles that are common nowadays, heavy in a gym/pool bag when you carry them around, heavy to manipulate when in the bath or shower and if children get their hands on them, you lose more! Anyway, Dove comes in a reasonable 250ml bottle which is good.
It has a thick but not too thick consistency, pearly-white colour and that Dovey's scent that is generally pleasantly inoffensive, though it makes me feel like I was about sixty five and probably slowly turning into one of my female in-laws, but this is just my subjective impression and the scent is really quite nice.
The lather is good, but not excessive, and the results are good. I have fine, dry hair that despite being dry gets quickly greasy and lifeless and thus wash my hair every other day (I know that many people wash hair daily, but to me even every other day always seemed extravagantly often), with this shampoo and any not too heavy conditioner I can sometimes last three days.
All in all, a good shampoo from a reputable if boring brand.
I change my shampoo and conditioner a lot as my hair seems to get used to a product and then not I do not get as good of a result as when I begin using the product. When the Dove range was on offer in my local supermarket I decided to give this one a go, I knew the Dove range was good as I had already tried another in their range.
This range usually costs about £2.50 a bottle and considering I always use a shampoo and conditioner this is more than I like to pay but I bought it when it was on offer at £1 a bottle.
The Dove Shampoo and Conditioner which I always use together promise to "protect normal hair from day to day damage"
The bottles are white in colour and is tapered so it is wider at the bottom than at the top. The bottle has some light blue bits on it and of course states the name of the product and states the above claim. I like the simplicity of the bottle and feel that once you have used the product it speaks for itself so over the top packaging isn't needed.
The shampoo has the usual Dove scent to it which I always find hard to describe, I would say it smells clean but also very slightly floral, I have always really liked the Dove smell and this product was no different.
The shampoo is a pretty thick consistency although it comes out of the bottle easily with a little squeeze. The shampoo lathers up really well and you don't need to use much at all which means that although it is more expensive than some it does last probably about as long as they do. When the shampoo is lathered up it feels really silky on your hair and then it rinses out easily without leaving residue however it probably take a little longer to rinse than most as there is so much lather.
I will continue using this product but since I change my products so often I will wait until it is on offer to use it again. This product along with the conditioner left my hair soft and silky and tangle free. My hair needs washing every 1-2 days depending on the product I am using and this one allows me 2 days which is another good thing for me. 4 out of 5 from me only the full price lets it down.
As I use a lot of heat on my hair drying and straightening it I always try and look for a product that tries to nourish my hair and be kind to it where I can. When I came across this dove shampoo that promised to protect normal hair from day to day damage I thought I would give it a go especially as it was on offer. The shampoo packaging is like most shampoos with a flip top lid and you simply squeeze the bottle for the product to come out very easily. It has a flat bottom so it can sit in my bathroom easily.
The shampoo has a great consistency it is not overly thick so it clings to my hands and becomes difficult to wash off but it is thick enough so when you squeeze the bottle it does not fall out causing a mess and of course a waste. I added a small 10 pence size amount of the shampoo to my hands and as soon as the shampoo was on my hand I could feel it was really creamy and soft and as soon as I rubbed my hands together it began to lather up really well and continued to build up as I rubbed it into the top of my hair.
There is a really sweet fragrance to this shampoo but it is not overpowering just noticeable and not over sickly as I find some shampoos can be. While it was still in my hair I could continue to smell the sweetness but as I began to wash it away that smell began to become less noticeable which I thought was a bit of a shame as I do like the scent to lingered in my hair for a while after. The shampoo was really easy to wash away although there was a lot of it in my hair once it had been rubbed in there was no trouble when it came to rinsing my hair underneath the shower. My hair instantly felt a lot softer and cleaner and I was really pleased with the results.
I have a really sensitive scalp and so I do not like changing my hair products in case it causes it to flare up but as I trust dove products I decided it should be fine. I had no problems at all with irritation to my scalp after using this shampoo. After my hair dried I found it to be really soft and bouncy although the sweet scent had completely disappeared and there was no trace of it in my hair at all.
I purchased this shampoo from Tesco while it was on offer for £1 although usual retail price is between £2 and £2.50 for a 250 ml bottle. Although I usually buy larger bottles of shampoo I did find that this lasted a little longer than others as it really does lather up well and a little does go a long way. I would recommend this shampoo and I will be buying it again even at full price as I felt it left my hair full of life and it did look a lot healthier. I am not sure about the protection it says it provides but my hair did feel soft and silky after use and I am happy to continue using this product.
I used to always look for Dove Shampoo and Conditioner whenever we went shopping as I loved the smell and results it has on my hair but over recent years I have been experimenting with various other brands for different results. It was only last month when I depleted my Lush stock of shampoo bars that I decided to re-try Dove.
The bottles have changed since I had last brought any and are now slim and sleek tapered bottles with various coloured label deciphering their usage. The Classic Case is a blue label and its design is simple and clear. Blue and gold writing inform you of its ingredients, directions of use and information. On the top is a flip lid also in white. The Classic Care shampoo will cost anywhere between £2 and £3.99 in Tesco depending on whether it is offer, When I got my last bottle it was 2 for £2.50.
Dove claim that the "Classic Care" shampoo will protect normal hair from any daily wear and tear and live hair "protected, visibly healthy and beautiful ". This range of shampoo and condition is targeted at those with normal hair who need to stop it getting damaged. Dove claims that this shampoo with its "advanced damage care and repair technology contains micro moisture serum to build a shield around the hair fibre to protect it gently from the damaging effect of daily aggressions and maintain hair's natural balance without weighing it down".
To apply you simply apply to wet hair, lather, rinse and repeat if necessary. The Shampoo smells divine and has the same distinctive fragrance as the Dove Soap. The shampoo is quite thick in texture and white in colour. It lathers up quickly and gives a surprisingly rich, luxiourious lather on your hair. I found no need to repeat the lather more than once. It rinses our easily and doesn't stick to your hair like some other thick shampoo's I have tried.
Even without using the conditioner, as soon as I have used the shampoo my hair feels moisturised. When dry you can still smell the Dove fragrance all day long which is a nice conditioning aroma. My hair felt in a good condition and looked repaired and restored. Whilst using the bottle I did notice that my split ends got better and no new ones appeared and my hair felt unbelievably soft and cared for.
I have to say that this has re-affirmed my love for the Dove hair range and although I love the Lush shampoo bars I have to say that the Dove Classic Care is better at nourishing your hair!
I bought a bottle of Dove Daily Care Shampoo from Tesco's a few weeks ago as it was on offer and so I thought it was a good time to try it. A 250ml bottle was reduced from £2.34 to £1.54 - which is a pretty significant discount and a good price.
The Dove Daily Care Shampoo comes in a plastic bottle whose design is not very striking and doesn't exactly jump out at you from the shelf, but I think part of the advertising campaign of Dove is to symbolise purity and simplicity and so I guess from this perspective the packaging makes sense. It does have product information on the back of the bottle, as well as instructions on how to use - which is the typical wet, lather and rinse method. The bottle has a flip top, which I prefer to a screw top because it's easier to open when my hands are wet and slippery.
The shampoo is a pure white and it looks rich and very creamy. It has a luxurious feel to it, despite the non-luxurous price. The fragrance is quite subtle but there is an floral undertone which smells fresh and clean. When applying to my hair I found I only needed to apply a small amount - about thimble full - and this was enough to create a decent amount of lather on my hair. After lathering, the shampoo was rinsed easily from my head and it didn't feel like there was any residue left afterwards.
This shampoo did leave my hair feeling clean and also soft and silky. I do have a tendency to get greasy hair and using this shampoo managed to keep on top of this. However, unfortunately, the Dove Daily Care Shampoo didn't do anything to help the psoriasis I get on my head - and so I had to discontinue using it after a few weeks - which was a shame.
Overall, I do think this is a good shampoo, but it might not be suitable for those with very sensitive skin.
I have never bought Dove hair products before, I have only used their deodorant and shower gel. Their hair range has never really appealed to me as I normally am loyal to Herbal Essences or Aussie, and so I bought this Daily Care Shampoo in Sainsbury's for no other reason than it was on offer.
The Daily Care Shampoo comes in a 250ml bottle. I find the packaging rather boring and non-descript - it's a plain white bottle that narrows at the top and has a flip-top lid. The Dove logo on the front is in navy, while the other writing is blue and gold. I find this would be very easy to walk past in the supermarket, and I only noticed it was there because I always look for notices on the shelves pointing out that products are on offer.
The packaging says that this shampoo contains 'micro moisture serum', while forms a shield around the fibre of your hair to protect it from damage. It also says it will leave hair '100% soft and radiant'. I was wary about the micro moisture serum in case it made my hair feel greasy - despite my hair being on the drier side due to highlights and straightening, I find that shampoos which are meant to help dryness just make my hair look and feel lank.
SMELL AND APPEARANCE
I was initially put off by this shampoo as I feel the smell is very similar to Head & Shoulders, which I dislike. However when you squeeze some out of the bottle it smells slightly more floral than Head & Shoulders. I prefer fruitier smells when it comes to shampoo, but this one does not smell unpleasant at all. The shampoo is a creamy white in colour, and thick.
I squeezed out a 10p sized blob of this, and it created loads of lather immediately. When I say 'loads', I mean my head was absolutely covered in suds! I was worried that this would make it hard to rinse out, but it rinsed out just as quickly as other shampoos. I like my hair to feel squeaky clean after shampooing, but this didn't feel like that at all, and I was worried my hair wouldn't feel clean after drying it. However for the sake of this review I soldiered on (what a trooper). Because it contained the serum, I didn't use as much conditioner as normal in case my hair got too greasy.
When I combed my hair through while it was still wet, my hair still didn't feel very clean. However, once I started drying it, I could feel that my hair felt clean to the touch right up to the very roots. When I finished drying it, it felt very soft. It also felt 'light', as if the shampoo had really gotten rid of any product build-up on my hair.
I then straightened my hair, and it felt smooth, especially the ends, which tend to be slightly dry.
The following morning my hair was still clean. I do feel that it looked very flat and a tiny bit lank, but it did not look or feel greasy.
WOULD I BUY THIS AGAIN?
I got this for £1.16 as it was half-price. I am not sure I would pay the full price as it's a relatively small bottle compared to the shampoo I usually buy, but if it was on offer again, I would definitely stock up. I do like how soft my hair feels after using it.
