This is the conditioner I usually use when I go over to Dublin, I was given this by my OH mum at Christmas.
I was happy to get this conditioner because Dove is a great brand and everybody knows that. I am pretty sure that it contains 200ml of conditioner.
The packaging is white, looks quite expensive, has the usual stuff on the label ( logo, ingredients, how to use, what it does ).
So what does this do to your hair?
Dove volume boost conditioner helps repairing the surface of fine, limp hair to restore volume.
My hair is fine after everything it has been through, my hair is quite limp, has no volume what so ever..my OH mum picked up the perfect conditioner for me!
I got into the shower and used the Dove Damage Therapy Volume Boost Shampoo which I had also got, I then opened up the conditioner and squeezed it out into my palm.
The texture of this is very creamy and satin like, it has a nice soapy smell about it which is gorgeous, it lathers up so nicely in your hair and makes it feel very thick.
I usually leave my conditioner to soak in for 3-4 minutes when in the shower ( if you feel like you don't have time to do this, soon as you get into the shower shampoo, condition and whilst you are leaving your hair, shave/clean your body ect..) whilst it was in my hair it felt so silky soft and luscious to run your fingers through.
The conditioner washes out very easily, doesn't remain in your hair, and your hair smells so nice and feels amazingly soft.
After I dried my hair, I noticed some of the frizz had calmed down.
I noticed my hair looked a lot more shinier ( a lot of other people noticed this aswell. )
My hair was easier to manage and still remained very soft.
But there was no volume what so ever, my hair wasn't any thicker, but even though this didn't live up to what promises it had said it would, I still loved the way my hair looked, felt and smelled.
I would recommend this! For around £2.99 - 3.99 it is so worth the money, you might think I'm being a weirdo because it didn't do what it said it would, but my hair looked so healthy, a lot of the frizz had calmed down, my hair was so manageable, and people noticed a difference which was a great benefit!
When it comes to purchasing shampoos I usually purchase the same matching formula conditioner. I have a thing about things matching and am rather fussy about it lol! I spotted this in Asda on offer for a pound a bottle recently and I bought both products. I do suffer with hair that lacks volume along with a whole host of other issues and I usually love the brand that is Dove too so I had high hopes for this being brilliant!
200ml plastic white bottle that has a flip-top lid concealing a small hole to the bottom of it and on the front of the bottle we are told that it is Dove 'Damage therapy' Volume Boost Conditioner 'With micro moisture serum and fibre actives' and that it 'Helps repair hair to restore volume' and that it is for fine hair and is a lightweight formulation 'Advanced care & repair for beautiful hair'. On the back of the bottle other information listed includes being told a bit about the product, the ingredients and size is stated (as I've listed already) and contact details for unilver are given (the manufacturer of the product). This is nice, sleek and unisex looking packaging and very informative
A Bit About The Product According To The Information Listed On The Back Of The Bottle:
Did you know? Fine hair is more prone to damage. When hair is damaged, it loses volume quickly. So fine hair needs special care that can nourish without weighing it down.
Dove advanced damage care and repair technology: This unique lightweight formulation contains Fibre Actives and strengthens the structure of fine hair from the roots building thickness and volume for you hair.
Well all you do of course is wash you hair with a shampoo first and then use this conditioner afterwards. This conditioner is of good consistency, white and a bit glossy and feels soft and moisturising on the hands before applying it. It has a well blended fruity but none distinctive fragrance to it and you don't need very much of it at all per application, thus making this an economical buy.
The hair absorbs it well and of course you can leave this on your hair as long as you want to before thoroughly rinsing it off.
It rinses out with complete ease and the hair is left feeling feeling soft enough. However for me this weighed my hair down and I didn't notice any volume to be injected after using this at all. On the positive side like I say my hair felt soft, did appear shiny and strong and it didn't upset my prone to greasy roots and all and did seem to moisturise my dry sections of hair.
All in all I liked this conditioner as the fragrance gently lingered on my hair for a good few hours making my hair feel cleaner for longer and my hair was easy to manage however I was gutted that the claim for adding volume to my hair really was (in my case a completely false one).
Available in all good supermarkets etc and like I have said I purchased mine recently in Asda at a pound a bottle though if not on offer expect to pay about £2.57 a bottle.
