I bought this conditioning spray following a conversation with a work colleague. She swore that this stuff "saved" her hair, so when I saw it on offer for half price in Superdrug I dropped one into my basket. My hair was very dry from colouring and was in need of some good old moisture!
The spray comes in a pump bottle with a blue plastic lid. The spray contains oil which tends to rise to the top of the bottle, so it's a good idea to give the bottle a shake before use.
I use the spray on both wet and dry hair, although I tend to use it on dry hair more. In fact I use this daily alongside my Moroccan Oil. I use this spray all over my hair and I use the oil on the ends of my hair. The good thing about this spray is that it never leaves your hair feeling greasy. I even massage this spray into my roots as apparently scalp massage helps to stimulate hair growth! The spray doesn't leave me with greasy roots either and I am noticing rapid hair growth.
This spray smells great with the classic "Dove" scent. It also lasts ages as a little goes a long way with its fine delicate mist. It really refreshes my dry coloured hair without stripping my hair of colour. It's easy to use and it always leaves my hair feeling soft and shiny.
I have noticed a positive difference since using this spray. My hair is less dry and I don't lose as much of it compared to before using the spray. It's a lot less brittle so it doesn't break off as much at the ends now.
Overall this is a lovely light hair conditioning spray from Dove. If you colour/ blow dry/ straighten your hair like I do then I would certainly recommend this!
This leave-in conditioner was a bit of an impulse buy. I was in Boots buying shampoo and conditioner and noticed that hair care was on a 3 for 2 offer. Although I didn't want or need anything in particular I decided to get a third item anyway, since it was free. I eventually chose the Dove Damage Solutions Intensive Repair Leave-in Conditioning Spray.
The spray comes in a clear bottle and the product separates whilst in the bottle so half is clear and half is milky. I did notice when buying this that there were several similar products from Dove with only the colour of the lid to distinguish them. Despite reading the bottles I couldn't work out which was which at the time so ended up choosing this just because I liked the blue colouring.
The product is said to help prevent breakages and split ends, 'to help keep hair soft and touchable all day long'. I have long hair and I use a hair dryer and hair straighteners regularly, so I do have a bit of damage to the ends, so this product is ideal for me.
To use, you first need to shake the bottle to mix the two layers, then this can be sprayed into either damp or dry hair. I've used it both ways and neither one seems any better than the other. The spray goes on in quite a fine mist and has a sweet candy scent to it.
I tend to spray this into the lengths of my hair, comb through and then style as usual. If you spray a lot it will dampen the hair slightly, however it doesn't ever interfere with any other styling products and I can just style my hair as usual after applying this.
Once in my hair this feels weightless and I really can't tell that its there. I've not had great results from leave-in conditioners in the past, so I wasn't expecting miracles, but I do think there has been a noticeable difference to my hair since I started using this. The main thing I have noticed is simply that it feels so soft and silky to the touch. I can't say for certain if it is doing anything to reduce damage, but my hair does seem to look healthier and hasn't been breaking off as often as it was.
A 200ml bottle of this costs £3.39 from Boots, which I think is a fairly reasonable price.
On the whole I am pleased with this product. It's quick and easy to use and does seem to have had some positive effects on my hair, so whilst not the most exciting product on the market, I would recommend it.
