I have only just until recently been purchasing Dove hair products.
I usually just buy buy ever is on offer at the time, however I always use descent brands.
My hair dresser dislikes this brand with a passion as it contains silicone that is bad for your hair follicles.
I however ignored her advice and decided to give it ago anyway as I like to make my own mind up on things that I purchase.You can also buy the matching
conditioner but I am yet to purchase this!
Comes in a white plastic bottle he with the dove hologram shown at the top of the bottle.
I'm reviewing the new colour radiance with hair revitaliser.This product also contains u.v.a filter to help protect the hair from damage from the suns harmful rays.
This bottle contains 250 ml of shampoo. It states on the bottle that it keeps hair colour looking good for up to ten weeks.It helps prevent the hair from damage caused from colouring the hair.
I am a natural strawberry blonde. However now approaching the age of thirty six in October I have found rather a few grey hairs and have to colour it every six weeks.
This is why I chose the Dove hair colour shampoo. It not only makes hair cleansed and revitalised and it looks healthy and nourished too.
Both myself and my friend use it and find it the best hair shampoo we have used in a very long time. The shampoo smells of citrus fruits and has a creamy white texture to it. Simply add about a ten pence piece amount massage into the hair and repeat if required and rinse until the water runs clear.Style your hair as you usually do and away you go.
Available from all good super markets and chemists for around 2.00 a bottle.
I am not particularly brand loyal when it comes to choosing shampoos and will often just buy whatever is on offer. The Dove range of shampoos are frequently on offer in Boots and the larger supermarkets so I will stock up on these when I see them at a good price.
I regularly get my hair coloured with highlights and I like the idea of a shampoo helping my colour last longer. For this reason the Dove Damage Therapy Colour Radiance Shampoo caught my eye. This shampoo within the Dove range claims to keep colour looking more vibrant for up to 10 weeks.
This Dove shampoo comes in a white plastic bottle. The bottle is quite sleek looking - it is wide at the bottom and becomes narrower as it gets to the top. The "colour radiance" logo is in pink which stands out well against the white and can be clearly identified. The bottle is shaped in a way that makes it easy to grip and has a flip top lid that is easily opened even with slippery hands.
When you squeeze this shampoo out of the bottle it is noticeably thick and creamy. It is pearly white in colour. When applied to wet hair this shampoo creates a thick lather, meaning only a small amount of shampoo is required to cover my shoulder length hair which is quite thick. The shampoo also rinses out of my hair easily and there is no stickiness or residue left behind. When I brush my hair after using this Dove shampoo it is noticeably less tangled than normal. After drying my hair feels clean and really soft and smooth to the touch.
One thing I love about this shampoo is the smell. It is hard to describe the smell but it is a creamy, feminine scent. I find the scent of most Dove products to be similar - the scent of this shampoo is nearly exactly the same as the scent of the Dove cream bar soap and also the body washes. After drying my hair I find that this scent stays in my hair all day and when I move my hair I get a lovely reminder of the nice scent of this shampoo.
One thing I would say about this shampoo is that the second day after washing, my hair is not as clean as it is with other shampoos and tends to be a bit on the greasy side. I am prone to greasy hair so this may not be the case for everyone. I do find however that this Dove shampoo does not keep my hair as clean for as long as other shampoos. This is probably due to the creamy nature of the shampoo, I find translucent, less creamy shampoos tend to keep my hair cleaner for a bit longer.
I find it difficult to say whether this shampoo actually helps to prevent my colour from fading, I haven't noticed much of a difference but then again I also haven't used this shampoo for longer than a couple of weeks at a time before as I usually switch around shampoos quite frequently depending on what mood I am in. I like it as a shampoo but wouldn't buy it especially for it's colour protecting properties.
At full price, this shampoo costs £2.69 in Tesco for a 250ml bottle. It is often on half price offer, including at the minute, at a bargain £1.34 per bottle. I think this is a great price for a branded shampoo. I give this product a 4* rating, I am taking one star off because it doesn't keep my hair clean for as long as other shampoos, and also because I am not sure if it actually protects my colour. Thanks for reading/rating.
Dove Damage Therapy Colour Radiance Shampoo
Dove is not a brand I usually associate with hair care products; I believe their transition into this lucrative market was in the last couple of years. I know this brand best for their soaps and body washes and have tried a couple of their shampoos and conditioners. I grabbed a tube of this when I saw it having dyed hair and suffering from colour fade I am always on the lookout for good value colour protect products and the fact that this is intended to protect your hair from colours in addition was a bonus.
The shampoo comes in a white plastic bottle with pink detailing. The Dove branding is on the front with the cute little golden dove picture. The bottle holds 250 ml of shampoo, which I find quite small after using 900 ml Tresemme bottles, but they are cheap enough and good for taking away with you on breaks and holidays.
The shampoo claims to:
Have micro moisture serum to help repair hair surface to lock in the colour;
Fibre actives known to penetrate deep inside the hair reconstructing it from within;
Leaves hair with vibrant colour that lasts.
The bottle has a flip lid which is easy to open in the shower and the shampoo easily comes out of the bottle. The shampoo itself is a nice thick and white gooey liquid which smells lovely and salon like. You apply this shampoo to wet/damp hair and massage into your hair until you get a good lather.
The shampoo lathers up very nicely with minimal effort which I always like in a shampoo. You get a good coverage of suds across you hair and it feels really silky and smooth, almost like a hair mask for your hair. It feels very nourishing and more like a heavy and lathery conditioner than a shampoo which is obviously good for my hair.
After washing my hair smells lovely and fresh and clean, more importantly it feels nourished and stronger for using this shampoo. I expect that it helps to keep my colour locked in for longer as well, I always notice when I use a none colour shampoo that my colour strips out much more quickly than not. This shampoo also helps to make my hair look shinier and on the first few washes with this I can see that it looks healthier.
Overall this is a really good colour protect shampoo from Dove, I would not buy this at full price which is £2.49 for just 250 ml of product, but when it is offer it is well worth the money.
WHAT IS IT?
Shampoo from Dove that will protect your hair from colour treatments and can also help to keep your colour looking bright and fresh.
WHAT I THINK
This is good shampoo and I like to use it because of how creamy it is. The shampoo produces a creamy and thick lather on the hair, you only need to use a small amount because it is so creamy that it is very easy to spread it through the hair as I'm washing. It rinses out easy and does not leave any shampoo in my hair that would make it go dull. I like the smell of this shampoo and how the smell lasts on my hair all day even if I use a different conditioner.
After I've washed my hair it feels very clean and looks shiny. This Dove shampoo does not make my hair go flyaway and after I've washed it I can style it like I normally do without having to use extra styling products. I like that when I wash my hair in this shampoo that it removes all the resides from my styling products and does not leave my hair sticky.
My hair is coloured and it goes dry sometimes but as soon as I use this Colour Radiance shampoo it makes it moisturised again and my hair immediately feels better to touch and is easier to brush. I do not know if it protects the colour because I lighten my blond hair to a lighter shade so it is hard to say if the shampoo makes any difference. Even it doesn't I will still buy this shampoo because it is effective at cleaning my hair and a bottle lasts for a long time because of only having to use a little bit every time you wash your hair.
A bottle of Dove Damage Therapy Colour Radiance costs about £2 and that is very good value because it is very good shampoo.
5 Dooyoo Stars.
When choosing my products I usually pick the one that is on offer, so when looking for a new shampoo I found Dove damage therapy shampoo colour radiance in my local chemist for just £1. At that price I couldn't refuse.
The bottle, like most of the dove products, is eye catching because of its unusual shape. It comes in a 250ml plastic bottle. The label is fairly plain with the dove logo and what the product is printed on the front and directions of use and ingredients on the back. It is simple yet effective.
The product itself is thick and creamy. It had an amazing smell (but I couldn't quite put my finger on what the smell was) that lasted in my hair for a good few hours. After just one use of the shampoo and matching conditioner I noticed a difference in the condition of my hair. It made my hair feel smooth and silky. I am always a bit sceptical about products that say they help your colour last but this product really swayed me. I'm sure my colour stayed brighter and fresher for much longer than it usually would.
This product really does what it says on the label and is great quality. Although I always change my products I would use this one again. i honestly couldn't find anything wrong with this product. I would highly recommend it to anyone.
Whilst I would never previously have considered myself to be brand loyal in respect of shampoos and conditioners, my last dozen or so purchases have belonged to Dove. In addition to the fact that their products are very affordable, I find both their hair and hand care ranges to be of an exceptionally high quality. I welcome the challenge of trying out new products and after enjoying some freebie intensive conditioners from Dove's newly launched Damage Solutions Colour Radiance range I decided to seek out their shampoo and matching conditioner. I have now had the opportunity to try them both with this review discussing my experience with using the shampoo.
I always find the appearance of Dove products very appealing to the eye with their unique shaped curvy packaging, which creates the illusion of quality. The brand manufactures a wide variety of product ranges for different hair types with each carrying its own claim. However, due to the almost identical packaging I often find it somewhat of a challenge telling the bottles apart when browsing the supermarket shelves.
As with the majority of the Dove hair care range, the shampoo and conditioner bottles are white with Colour Radiance offering touches of eye catching vivid cerise. Consequently, the range is easily detected amongst the other bottles. The concept of Colour Radiance is that it will nourish and protect colour for up to ten weeks. In addition, the range has been produced with less sulphate to gently cleanse and condition the hair. My just below shoulder length hair is thick and naturally curly and is constantly subjected to home colorants and heated appliances. As a result, I seek out products that are suited to my hair type although due to suffering dryness on the tips I also use their other shampoos and conditioners that are designed to assist with the problem.
The 250 ml sturdy plastic bottle offers a robust lid, which is incorporated into the upper section and it is easily flipped open and securely closed when not in use. The good consistency white shampoo is easily dispensed and despite having thick hair I only need to use a small amount. It is easily applied and spread into my hair and feels soft and creamy to the touch. A sufficient lather is created within seconds of massaging into my hair and as with the majority of Dove's shampoos and conditioners I adore the aroma that greeted me with its delicate floral tones.
The shampoo was tough enough to remove the build up of hair products that I use on a daily basis and it was easily rinsed away without leaving any sticky residue. I followed with the matching conditioner, as otherwise my hair will knot and tangle. Consequently, I was able to layer the stunning aroma, which lingered in my hair for a good few hours following use. Whilst my hair was left feeling silky soft and smooth, I was able to style it as normal.
I can agree with Dove's claim in relation to the shampoo offering nourishment, as prior to applying the conditioner, I was able to witness its effects. It is impossible for me to evidence the claim of the product keeping colour looking more vibrant for up to ten weeks, particularly as I colour my hair every couple of months due to the fact that my hair is fast growing. However, I am able to report that between recolouring there were no signs of fading, which is generally the case, particularly on my crown. Dove advises that the shampoo contains UV filter, but unfortunately, this is a further claim that I am unable to evidence.
This is another gorgeous and very luxurious shampoo from Dove and due to the reasons discussed above, it receive a recommendation from me together with five stars. You can purchase a 250 ml bottle for around £2.44, but I never buy my products at full price, as they are frequently on promotion in stores such as Boots, Asda and Tesco, which is the time that I stock up.
I hope you found my review useful and thanks for reading.
