Dove Intensive Repair Shampoo & Conditioner

For someone who switches between weaves and colour treated relaxed hair I find that I always need extremely hydrating hair care products. I feel like I’m turning into broken record but here we go anyway–I love Dove products! I tried out the Dove Intensive Repair Shampoo & Conditioner for the first time and to be honest I was already confident when I saw the silky texture of the shampoo and the creamy, milk like feel of the conditioner. Read on to learn more about my experience with the Dove Intensive hair care combo!

Dove Intensive Repair Shampoo & Conditioner for dry damaged hair

Soo when I first tried this hair care combo I had a weave in so I went ahead and dampened my hair first before applying the Dove Intensive shampoo to my damp hair. For anyone who’s interested, my hair texture is Peruvian straight. As mentioned before this range works for natural, relaxed hair, weaves, wigs etc so it basically is meant for every hair type and texture–woohoo! I proceeded to lather the hair using gentle strokes with my hands in one direction. I rinsed out the shampoo then this is where the trick comes in…

So because my hair had suffered some heat damage and dryness due to the weather I went in strong with the Intensive conditioner. I applied a generous amount to my hair (weave) and covered it in a plastic shower cap for 20 minutes. I then gently massaged the hair which was already showing signs of rejuvenation and intensive hydration. I combed it through in a backward direction and gently rinsed out the excess conditioner with warm water. I then air dried my hair and added a tiny bit of virgin coconut oil.

Tip: Allow your hair to air dry for a natural soft and bouncy texture.

How does the Dove Intensive Repair Shampoo & Conditioner Feel?

It left my hair feeling light, bouncy and most of all smelling fresh and looking clean. Watch my video below to see how effortlessly soft and velvety my hair looked and felt. I’m still struggling to put my finger on what the Dove Intensive hair care smells like. I would probably say that its quite similar to the  wild cotton and cashmere scent found in most of their products which is subtle, soft and sensational.
