As part of the PRO AGE range, this focuses on the hair, obviously rather than the body.
There has been a lot of talk about reducing the features of age [ as always] and there are some recommendations that hair and the look can contribute towards you reflecting that in your hair care ie your hair is now an aging sign!
This you would assume due to the name 'PRO AGE' would be aimed at helping that but instead this aims to help make your hair appear fuller, healthier and revitalised, maybe they are the aspects that age you backwards? Who knows?
For me, I picked this up due to the way I feel quite positive about the results on my skin care and thought this would be worth a try.
I have thick hair and this really didn't help that, this is solely my fault.
I clearly didn't read this in-store and went along with the branding instead.
On my second attempt, as not to waste this product, I tried a smaller amount of the shampoo but still this made me hair thicker, fuller and more unmanageable.
On the upside, this would be a good product for anyone wanting to create that look, on the downside is as stated above.
Overall this is good, it didn't cleanse the scalp in a big way and therefore you know the product build up hasn't been touched. I always think you need a EUCALYPTUS based product to get that.
This as always from this gorgeous range is reasonably priced on average £2.99 x
I came across the Dove pro-age shampoo in my local supermarket & decided to buy because it was on offer for £1.50.
The shampoo is package in a 250ml burgundy bottle with a flip top lid.The scent is pleasant & not too overpowering.
It promises 2 x stronger hair by repairing surface of thin, weak hair thus restoring strength & volume.
To be honest before using this shampoo my hopes were low, I've spent a small fortune on hair products which claim to add fullness to hair but they have either made no difference at all to my fine hair or have stopped working after a couple of weeks but for the small price I'd invested in this shampoo I didnt really have much to lose.
On use the shampoo lathers up really well & once rinsed off could already feel that my hair had expanded. I applied the Dove-pro age conditioner which was also on offer for £1.50, rinsed, applied my new fave volumizing spray (Vo5 plump it up amplifying blow dry lotion) then dried with hair dryer.
Results: Gob smacked! It actually worked! My hair not only looked & felt fuller but also had its shine back. The results were far better than shampoos which I have paid £10 +. I have now been using both the shampoo & conditioner for 2 months & results always the same. My hair also feels stronger & there has been far less breakage. Highly recommended for fine, brittle hair.
Normal price £2.44. Currently on offer at Tesco 3 for 2 :-)
I have always been a fan of Loreal Elvive shampoo and conditioners but recently they seem to make my hair lank. A friend suggested that I try Dove and for some odd reason I picked up the Pro Age version. What can I say, it's brilliant! I have waist length hair and wash and condition it every day and Dove Pro Age works a treat. My hair feels lighter and is in great condition. The shampoo really cleans my hair without stripping it of moisture and keeps it feeling lovely all day. My only minor complaint is that it has quite a thick consistency which means you use more than you need unless you are very careful, I tend to add some warm water to it and mix well once I've used the first bit which thins it down. Although Dove can be a slightly more expensive brand Asda seem to do it at a good price so I just stock up when I'm there.
I have to say that I like Dove products. This is one of the reasons why I was attracted to this product in Asda the other day. Another reason is that I was attracted to the appearance of the bottle, the dark red colour stood out amongst all the other pastel-coloured bottles. I must be a marketing department's dream customer! However, I have to admit the main reason for buying it was the extremely good buy 2 for £2 offer on Dove products. Asda seem to promote this offer fairly often on Dove products, so watch out for it.
I find this shampoo suits my hair type which is quite dry. Because of this, I always use separate shampoos and conditioners so I purchased this along with the matching conditioner. The shampoo was white in colour, smelt nice, and I only needed a small amount to work up a really good lather. This means it is really economical, especially when on offer, as a bottle lasts for quite a while.
Dove Pro Age range would appear to be aimed at the older customer who is looking for a decent product at a reasonable price. It is advertised as removing dirt and build up to give more body and volume. I have to say that the first couple of times I used this my hair did feel noticeably shinier and bouncier, so I guess it worked for me! However after that, I didn't notice any further effects. I change my shampoo and conditioner every few months to avoid build up, but I would definitely use this again in the future.
I must also add that, as mentioned earlier, my hair is very dry so I always use conditioner anyway. I would not recommend using this shampoo on its own, unless your hair is the sort that goes lank when conditioned, as I feel that it does not offer any protection from further drying out your hair.
To sum up, this shampoo whilst not stunning, is a good, solid everyday choice, is good value for money, and so, in my opinion, well worth a try.
Going into my bathroom is always a strange experience when my Mother has been shopping and I love to test all the stuff she had bought so my usual stuff stays out on the shelves and I get to work! She has a habit of buying some rather odd bits and pieces providing they are cheap and cheerful and always chooses buy one, get ones free items. She loves them! I have tried Dove Pro Age stuff before (like the body lotion and deodorant) and been fairly impressed so I was looking forward to using this and of course I had planned on using the matching conditioner, which eventually I did but please read review!
It comes in a 250ml dark red recyclable bottle. It clearly states on the bottle what it is and who it is by and on the back tells us what it is for and how to use to use it. The liquid itself is white in colour and the liquid is white and fairly runny I.E tip the bottle upside down and it runs out. It has the usual fresh soapy smell of all the Dove products and therefore suitable really for male or female usage.
A gentle cleansing system removes build-up to maintain volume whilst protecting hair from damage.
Leaves thinning hair looking fuller & thicker.
For the more 'maturer' hair.
Using The Product....
Well to use it's simple. Wet hair, later and repeat if necessary.
So using it was one hell of an experience and one I won't be repeating. As I've said it comes out rather too runny and the fragrance is pleasant. You really don't need much to get a decent lather and on my first usage I do think I used too much! Soon as I stuck it on my head wow. My hair dried out under the shampoo although my hair was soaking wet! It became like straw and I almost broke my fingers running them through! Hair was squeaky and although I made sure it had rinsed out properly it still felt far to dry. I couldn't get a comb through my hair.
My mobile rang so I dried off my hair and had a chat for a bit. it was drying out worse! It felt grubby and tangly and gritty and just totally vile to the point that I hung up from me mate and ran into the bathroom to sort it out. I did use the matching conditioner and it did sort it out alot but the shampoo on its own is a definite no no. It reminds me of the cheap shampoos from years ago. Hair without the conditioner felt ruined. I lost my comfort and it was dehydrated and just awful and didn't even feel clean.
Disgusting stuff I couldn't recommend unless this unless using the conditioner or any conditioner along with it.
As for results well I have to take into consideration that I did use the matching conditioner afterwards. Well my hair recovered and smelt pleasant. It was shiny enough but didn't give me exceptional results. I wouldn't use it again as I really lost the hydrated feeling during the washing process although it came back with work. Hair did feel bouncy although I wouldn't say hair was any thicker using both the shampoo and conditioner.
I'm 33 and maybe this would be better on more mature hair than mine, but I doubt it!
£2.59 Per Bottle from Boots and all good chemists and supermarkets and do look out for offers.
