If you’ve been reading for a while, you may already know that I’m still hunting for the shampoo and conditioner.
I used to have an obsession with Pantene Ice Shine (before it was discontinued and brought back with a different formula); but more recently, I’ve tried tried two flavors of Tigi products, tried a Suave option, tried Nexxus, tried a Neutrogena option. Most-recently been using a 39oz each duo of Tresemme’s Moisture Rich Shampoo and Conditioner.
I don’t hate the Tresemme products I was using. They aren’t really causing my hair to act up…but they aren’t really doing anything nice for it, either. I’ve also been seeing some light dandruff on occasion, something I never used to deal with – I’m not sure whether or not to attribute this to the Tresemme, but it certainly isn’t making me eager to repurchase.
I am now nearing the end of those monstrous bottles, so I decided to take advantage of a coupon for Dove haircare and give it a shot since it has been many, many years since I’ve used Dove hair products (love the classic bar soap, though).
Holly Ann AeRee routinely raves about Dove’s Advanced Hair Series Pure Care Dry Oil on YouTube – since I didn’t have anything in mind, I decided to give it a shot.
Before I committed to the purchase in the store, I confirmed that both the shampoo and conditioner fulfill my requirement of being free of added protein. I’m tired of wasting my money on products that cause my hair to, “become someone else,” ultimately making me miserable. I don’t pay for things to be made miserable by them!
Also, like most people, I popped the cap and smelled it (hey, you don’t want to wash your hair with something that smells awful to you). The prevailing fragrance note was…dryer sheets. It is not a bad thing. Kind of weird for hair, but isn’t whatever Herbal Essences is shilling these days weird for hair when it comes down to it?
I’ll be using it over the next couple months and will report back with my findings!
