Dove Shampoo Normal Hair
Advantages: Makes hair healthy, adds bounce and cleans hair perfectly. Cheap.
I have been using a shampoo designed for just brunettes and dyed hair, but the change in ingredients was making my hair feel and looked damaged and unhealthy, so I knew I'd have to find another decent brand, with so much choice it is hard! But in my local Wilkinson, I noticed Dove Daily Care shampoo, it was on buy one get one free. Although not tried Dove shampoo before, it looked like it would be much kinder to my hair.
The shampoo comes in a 250ml white bottle, with a flip lid. The bottle contains the recognizable Dove symbol, and includes a lot of information on both sides. Dove claim the shampoo has "micro moisture serum" and "protects hair against normal wear and tear". On the back of the bottle there is information on the ingredients and further information on the "micro moisture serum".
Using the shampoo is the same as other shampoo's, I put about a 2p sized amount of the shampoo, but for longer hair you may want a bigger size. I thought 2p was perfect for my hair, it was just enough to do the job, without making my hair feel heavy with shampoo. The shampoo lathers up perfectly easy on wet hair. The Dove Shampoo is how it smells, and it has a creamy, almost soapy smell, which is nice and but not particularly exciting, but the smell is never the tipping point for a shampoo, and I'm guessing not using added smells makes the shampoo more natural for hair.
The shampoo has quite powerful effects, my hair felt instantly clean, but without drying my hair, which was biggest worry. Even when the hair is still wet, you can tell the shampoo is light on hair, perfect! Once dry my hair felt much softer then previously, but had more bounce to it, which is such a benefit for me, as my hair tends to be quite limp and dull. The clean effects of the shampoo last throughout the day, as did the softness, so such a bonus!
The long term benefits of the shampoo are that my hair feels healthier permanently, I have less spilt ends and my hair has more bounce and, just looks healthier and brighter. Also the shampoo lasts ages, I've been using it for a few months and only just past half way through. Couldn't recommend enough!
Dove Daily Care shampoo is available at most pharmacists and supermarkets, costing around £2.65, but it varies from place to place.
Summary: I can't get enough!
