Looking at this product, it stands out with its eye catching red packaging. Smelling the product, it smells pretty average, without much of a fragrance just a nice and plain 'shampoo smell'. The bottles are easy to open, even with wet hands which makes using this shampoo easier than some other shampoos out there. It is a little hard to find in the shops, even the bigger stores around here tend to only get it in when its on promotion, though that is about every other month so no problem if you buy in bulk ;P Use as you would with anyother shampoo - wet hair and lather in the shampoo and rinse. The bottles always recommend using the matching conditioner, and actually, I agree with this and think my hair turns out better than mis-matching them. When I dry my hair with the hair dryer after using this shampoo (and matching conditioner ;P) it dries without looking frizzy or showing my split ends to the world (lets face it though, we all have them :D) If I follow with my hair straighteners then I think this is the thing that helps keep my flyaway hair tame. Though I must add, even though it protects my hair, hides my frizz and my split ends, this shampoo does tend to make my lightbrown hair have a slight yellowy tone to it and make it kind of dull. I'm not sure why, but most of the time I figure its worth it :D Also need to add that my hair gets greasy quicker when using this shampoo - have to wash almost every day whereas usually its every 2-3 days. Again, sometimes I think its worth it, sometimes I just cannot be bothered with the hassle. Overall, I'd say this is a better than average shampoo, though still trailing behind some of the better ones I have come across. I'd mark it a 6.5/10 .
I love this shampoo and conditioner , but the shops don't seem to get it in very often , I have just been to town (Leeds) and none of the big shops have got it in , so had to buy something else , which annoys me . why don't they sell it , I don't know . so very disappointed
I'm sure there are many people like me who have to style there hair every day. I will admit that i have fallen victim to a certain pair of GHD's and have now been under there magical straightening spell for a number of years. My hair is very fine, naturally curly and doesn't cope well with continuous styling, as i found out after about 6 months of using my straightners every day when my hair started to break and split. I then realised that i needed to make a conscious effort to find a heat protection for my locks that wasn't going to end up being a battle every morning of sprays, serums, and any other invention that would, without a doubt leave my hair weighed down and lifeless. After trial and elimination of practically every brand of shampoo on the shelves of my local Boots store i found my hairs God send, Doves Heat Defence Therapy shampoo.
~Whats ON the bottle~
Doves Heat Defence Therapy shampoo comes in an orangy-red, easy to grip bottle, with a flip top lid. I always find the shape and lid type of a bottle of shampoo to be important, theres nothing worse when it comes to washing your hair and you can't hold your shampoo with out dropping it because of an impractically shaped bottle. Doves Heat Defence Therapy shampoo as described on the bottle is for frequently heat styled hair. It contains a protective serum made out of micro particles that protects and strengthens your hair from frequent heat styling, leaving your hair in great condidtion.
~Whats IN the bottle~
The shampoo itself is white and very thick. It has a lovely fruity scent which you can still smell strongly in you hair the following day. When applying, it creates a great lather so only a little is needed essentially, depending on how much hair you have. Once washed out you can instantly feel how silky and deep cleansed your hair and scalp feel. This shampoo is dermatologically tested with a neutral PH so is fine for all skin types.
Once blow dried, my hair feels soft and silky with a lovely bouncyness that i don't get from any other shampoo. When it comes to brushing and straightening (the real test) i get no where near as many breakages and less frizz in general.
~Whats the damage~
Doves Heat Defence Therapy shampoo generally costs around the £2.50 mark but varies alot depending on where you buy it from. I always buy mine for £1.99 from savers, this is the cheapest i have found it and they always have it in stock. You can normally buy the matching heat defense conditioner for the same price.
I could not recommend Doves Heat Defence Therapy shampoo enough for those of you who heat style your hair regularly. It has saved my hair from certain death by breakage : )
You may have read my review on the ghd hair straighteners, in which I recommended this product to go along with them. It's designed to protect hair against very high temperatures from hair straighteners. I use this in conjunction with the shampoo, and not only does it wash my hair very well but it helps to keep my hair from falling out too!
It comes in a 250ml bottle for around £2.18 - the same price as the conditioner. It's not the cheapest shampoo but is certainly well-worth buying if you apply heat to your hair regularly. The bottle is deep red with a Dove Therapy logo towards the top. This specific one is Heat Defence Therapy. It is described as an advanced serum with protecting serum.
It has a small indent where the lid is so it's really easy to open, even in a wet shower! There is a good size hole where the shampoo pours out. It has a creamy off-white colour and smells gorgeous - quite floral and light. Giving it a good massage into damp hair, you can really build up a LOT of bubbles so you don't need much! I'd make sure you give this one a really good massage in as you want to get it right to the roots of your hair. This way, it should keep your hair in fabulous condition.
After using this with the conditioner, I come out the shower with great feeling hair. Once I dry it, it's smooth and silky and feels strong even if I begin to straighten it. Before I used this, I'd get strands of hair falling out all over the bathroom. Inevitably this still happens, but to a much lesser extent. I think a product like this is almost necessary when you style your hair on a regular basis as it could lead to your hair falling out one day and you want to try and stop this by keeping it healthy!
Obviously you should avoid contact of this with your eyes. The magical ingredients that work really well are listed below.
Aqua,Sodium Laureth Sulfate (A) / Sodium C12-13 Pareth Sulfate (B) ,Cocamidopropyl Betaine ,Sodium Chloride ,Glycerin ,Dimethiconol ,Parfum ,Clycol Distearate ,Carbomer ,Sodium Hydroxide ,Guar Hydroxpropyltrimonium Chloride ,Sodium Laureth Sulfate (B) ,PEG-45M ,DMDM Hydantoin ,Sodium Benzoate ,TEA-Dodecylbenzenesulfonate ,PPG-12 ,Citric Acid ,Disodium EDTA ,Mica ,Methylchloroisothiazolinone ,Methylisothiazolinone ,Amyl Cinnamal ,Benzyl Alcohol ,Benzyl Salicylate ,Butylphenyl Methylpropional ,Citronellol ,Hexyl Cinnamal ,Hydroxycitronellal ,Limonene ,Linalool ,CI 15985 ,CI 19140 ,CI 77891
So to sum up, this is a fantastic product and well-worth buying for those of you who continue to style hair with heat on a regular basis! This definitely helps to strengthen your hair, and is a very good quality and reliable product from Dove, still at a generous price.
Thanks for reading!
My hair is incredibly course, thick and curly and can rarely be easily tamed. I saw Dove Heat Defence Therapy Shampoo on offer in Wilkinson for just 99p, and thought I'd buy it and give it a go purely because of how cheap it was. I was surprised to see how much I liked it! I was amazed at how soft and smooth is had made my hair after only one application.
Dove Heat Defence Therapy is primarily aimed at those who frequently heat style their hair as it protects against heat damage. This also makes it a useful product as it does not mean investing in what can sometimes be expensive heat defence sprays. It strengthens the hair to protect against heat damage.
Only a small amount is needed also, as it does lather up rather quickly in comparison to other brands. However it does have a rather bland smell - personally, I like nice smelling products, although this one appears to be unscented!
Often Dove Heat Defence Therapy can be found on offer in Wilkinsons, and occasionally Superdrug, however after looking round I have found Tesco's to be the all time cheapest at £2.18 per 250ml bottle. 250ml is more than adequate as such a minimal amount is required and so it is very long lasting.
It takes a very strong product to tame my hair and Dove Heat Defence Therapy Shampoo definitely does just that. I highly recommend it to anyone who heat styles their hair. It is a bargain for the professional quality job it does. I love this product.
This shampoo is a produced by Dove. The product has a protecting serum in it to protect your hair from heat damaged caused by styling. The shampoo also helps remove any build up of product you have in your hair. This costs around £2.65 for a 250ml bottle.
I do have a little bit of an obsession with shampoos. (I currently have around 10 bottles surrounding my shower). I like to try different products and more so if they are on special offer! I purchased this when it originally came out a few months ago. It was on special offer for around half price I think.
Don't be fooled by the orange bottle. This does not smell of orange or anything really. But I didn't buy it for the fragrance. I blow dry and straighten my hair every day I wash it so I like to mix up my shampoos so my hair gets the best of them all! I liked the idea of the protective heat serum in this shampoo.
You this this as you would any other shampoo, lather into wet hair and then rinse thoroughly. The product does work really well. It is a creamy consistency which I find works best with my thick frizzy hair. After using this product my hair felt much softer and did look nice and shiny. It was very easy to brush through, no tugs. All in all it was a good shampoo. I would have liked it better had it had a nice fragrance, but the smell was really just a normal shampoo smell, nothing extraordinary.
If this was on offer again I would probably buy it to add to my collection.
I'm not one for spending a lot of money on shampoo, and more often than not I buy whatever is on offer, usually spending a £1 per bottle, and it's frequently Alberto Balsam or a shop's own brand. So when I spotted this Dove Therapy was priced at just a pound (usually £2.65 in Boots) for 250ml, I had to try it.
The actual shampoo is called Dove Therapy Heat Defence Therapy Shampoo With Protecting Serum (a bit of a mouthful), and it is tailored for people who frequently heat style their hair. It comes in a bright red bottle with a flip cap; you can't miss it on the shelf.
Now although this shampoo is primarily for heat styled hair, I have to admit my hair does not get a lot of attention in that area. Mainly because I cannot be bothered anymore, and also because I have two young kids, and I don't really think they care what my hair looks like. I usually wash it every other day and dry it with a hair dryer, no straightening irons or tongs (unless I am going somewhere special). So my hair, for want of a better phrase, usually looks a like a bit of a haystack. It's the kind of hair that actually needs heat styling to keep it in line. It's naturally straight, but can be a bit fuzzy and fluffy if it doesn't get attention; needless to say I tie it back most days.
So when I bought this shampoo (and conditioner actually) I was quite looking forward to using it, because my hair does not usually get treated to something this special (special to me anyway). The shampoo itself is a thick white creamy substance and lathers up in my hair really nicely. I only use a small blob and it forms a nice froth, but also washes out very easily under the shower. As soon as I had used it, and this is before I had even got out of the shower I actually felt the difference in my hair, it felt sleeker and smoother while the water was running through it.
So once I had conditioned and dried my hair with the hair dryer, I was actually quite amazed at the difference the shampoo has made to my hair. My hair looked really shiny and glossy. The fly-away hairs that I seem to get so many of had completely disappeared; my hair actually looked like I had just used some straightening irons on it! And I am quite sure that the colour was brighter too, my hair is naturally blonde but it has been looking quite dull lately, but using this shampoo seems to have brought the blonde back to the surface.
Another thing I noticed was that my hair felt cleaner for longer. I usually wash every other day because my hair seems to pick up grease quite easily, but I've found I can stretch to a third day before re-washing with this shampoo.
So all in all I am really very impressed with this shampoo, and I may even purchase it occasionally when it isn't on offer because I like it so much!

I didn't even realise Dove did shampoo and conditioner until recently. I was looking for some on Tesco's online site and scanning though the one's which were on offer and the Dove range popped up. They were on offer for 2 for 1, and as I needed both shampoo and conditioner they seemed the perfect choice. I generally really like Dove products and frequently use them so I was interested to see how their hair care range faired.
There were a number of different variations of the Dove range, however I decided to go for the Dove Therapy Heat Defence Shampoo. I chose this one as I am a bit of a slave to my hair straighteners an I could see on the bottle that this shampoo contained a protecting serum and my hair could certainly do with all the protection it can get.
I paid £2.39 for both the shampoo and conditioner and the shampoo cam in a 250ml bottle. This particular variety is packaged in a bright red bottle which is quite distinctive and stands out on the supermarket shelves.
I used the shampoo for the first time while showering, I applied a average size blob to my hair and began to give it a good wash. It worked up quite a creamy lather without too much trouble and it also smelt incredibly pleasant. I then rinsed my hair and applied more for a second wash, this time the shampoo lathered up straight away and I was able to get really stuck in. To finish off I rinsed and then applied conditioner.
While my hair was wet it did smell very pleasant and I was interested to see you it would feel after drying. I was not disappointed, this shampoo left my hair feeling incredibly soft and bouncey and I was pleased that after drying and styling, it didn't feel dry as it sometime does.
I was really pleased with the Dove shampoo and I will definately buy this one again.
I always like to try different shampoos and am usually lead to purchase a shampoo depending what is on offer in Tescos on the day I am shopping. My latest purchase was Dove Heat Defence Therapy Shampoo. I bought it partly because it was on offer and partly because as I blow dry and straighten my hair I thought the "Heat Defence" element sounded just what I needed.
The shampoo retails for around £2.39 for a 250ml bottle. It is available in most supermarkets and in Boots and Superdrug and other chemists. It is currently on a BOGOF offer in Tesco.
The shampoo is designed for hair that is "frequently exposed to heat styling damage" and is made with a new formula that has a protecting serum. This serum apparently contains millions of micro particles that will protect and strengthen the hair from the damage that can be caused by styling with heat. The shampoo also removes the build up you can get with residue left from styling products and should leave your hair in great condition. It is dermatologically tested and has a mild formula with a neutral pH.
The shampoo comes in a red plastic bottle with a flip top cap. I don't really like the design of the top and cap, mine has got really sticky as the shampoo leaves residue around the top which then leaks down the sides. Dove I think you could improve on this design! The shampoo is a pearly white colour and of moderate thickness it has a lovely fresh smell.
The first thing I notice when massaging this into my wet hair is that it feels really quite luxurious and really feels as if it is conditioning my hair even as it washes. It produces lots of lather and my hair feels really clean. The bubbles are easy enough to rinse out and after drying my hair it feels clean, bouncy and really shiny.
I really like this shampoo it does feel as if it is working well in my hair. I think for best results you probably should use this shampoo alongside another heat protective product such as a spray or cream to give added protection against heat damage but I think this is a great shampoo and I would be happy to buy it and use it again.
