AMW Reviews: Dove Damage Therapy Shampoo and Conditioner

If you are into watching local channels, you've probably seen the super cute and eye-catching commercial of Dove.

Bridesmaid check out her hair and find it frizzy and dry...


Decided to hide behind an "almost bald" man.  *Laughs* 
So cute and funny!


Just like the rest of the blogging world, I did gave this 2 a try and after 2 full weeks of usage, I'm ready to give my initial thoughts because there's so much to say!

Conditioner
  • Gives hair the extra smoothness and softness it needs
  • Use daily
AMW says ---
Pros
  • I love the simplicity of the packaging!  
  • Lathers up pretty well.
  • Smells different as compared to Dove Shampoo and Conditioner from other countries but smells really good!
  • Hair feels light.
  • Hair feels super soft and easy to comb.
  • The conditioner, I can tell is super potent and feels just like it came straight from a hair treatment "tub" but in squeeze-able packaging.
  • Controls frizz.  Let's say it reduces at least 5% of hair frizz.
  • Inexpensive and finally, available locally!
Cons
  • Because it is too"rich" in terms of moisturize, oily hair may find themselves oil-up fast int he middle of the day.
  • May cause dandruff.  It did a bit on me but nothing exaggerating, I do get dandruffs on ALL types of shampoos and conditioners!  I just have to include an anti-dandruff treatment shampoo in between and I'm all set!
Overall
I am not joking when I talk about this pairing on Twitter, Tara and I both love how soft and smooth the hair IMMEDIATELY feels upon usage!  I've been using this for weeks inserting Clarifying shampoo and anti-dandruff shampoo and I'm loving the result!  Hair is definitely less frizzy and less tangle (which equals to less hair fall due to tangles).

Tips

  • If you suffer itchy scalp or dandruff by using a new type of shampoo and conditioner variant, always insert your trustee anti-dandruff shampoo in between.
  • Use clarifying shampoo to remove product build up at least once a week or as long as it works for you!
  • Add water to a small amount of Dove Damage Therapy Shampoo and gently mix between your fingers and massage onto your scalp and the rest of your hair.
  • Conditioners are always applied from mid-hair down to the tips.  Leave it for at least 3-5minutes or much better, wrap it with shower cap as you wash your body!
Will I repurchase?
Yes

To whom do I recommend this to?
Anyone who suffers from dry, frizzy hair.

Where to purchase and how much?

Available in leading department stores and supermarkets nationwide for around Php200.00+ (approx $4.65+)  both Shampoo and Conditioner added together.

    i tend to have dry hair when im in Baguio, because of the weather and i think Dove trio -shampoo,conditioner and body bar- is the best defense! ;)

  9. If not for my dandruff problem, I'd be using this line by itself. :P I'm only using the conditioner right now. Maybe I'll try alternating the shampoo and H&S :D
