I don’t often review hair care on Writing Whimsy, but when you have a chance to try two lines from a brand you adore? Umm, yes, I’m going to test them out and let you know what I think. Dove makes some of my favourite hair care–especially that Dove Pure Care Dry Oil range–and now they’ve released two more lines targeted at dry, damaged and curly hair. Basically, hair just like mine. The Dove Advanced Hair Series Regenerative Nourishment and Quench Absolute Hair Care products include a shampoo, conditioner and styling product for flawless, soft, hair.
The Dove Advanced Hair Series Regenerative Nourishment Shampoo, Conditioner and Serum-in-Oil line is designed for dry, damaged hair that needs some extra care to help it feel soft and healthy again. This range is perfect if you have bleached your hair, or if you’re like me and just a fan of the flat iron. I could not believe how soft and silky these products make my hair.
The Regenerative Nourishment shampoo contains Red Algae Complex, while the e conditioner has Red Algae and Keratin NutriComplex so it leaves my hair extra soft. If you tend to get oil at the scalp you definitely want to focus this conditioner closer to the ends of your hair, where it is probably frizziest anyway. I really loved the previous hair oil I tried from Dove, and this Serum-in-Oil is equally wonderful. I really only use a tiny bit, but it helps add shine and smooths out my hair. I really keep touching my hair after I use it (probably not a good idea!)
If you have curly hair like me, you know how much of a pain it can be to keep under control. That’s why there’s the Dove Advanced Hair Series Quench Absolute range, which includes a Shampoo, Conditioner and Supreme Creme Serum so you can #LoveYourCurls.
The Quench Absolute Shampoo and Conditioner include ingredients like Buriti Oil, which definitely help leave my hair softer and more manageable, without weighing it down too much. With curly hair, I want to weigh it down a little to eliminate the frizz, which this does, but it doesn’t leave it gross or greasy feeling. It also smells great! (In my experience, all Dove products do). This duo is perfect for detangling hair as well, and and combined with a small amount of the Quench Absolute Supreme Crème Serum helps give my curls definition while leaving them soft and silky. Another line definitely best suited to dry hair, but absolutely perfect for mine.
If you have dry, damaged or curly hair you’ll definitely want to check out these new Dove Advanced Hair Series products. Both ranges left my hair soft, smooth, frizz-free and smelling great. While I would repurchase either, my favourites are the Shampoo and Conditioner from the Quench Absolute (which are a little less heavy) and the Serum-in-Oil from the Regenerative Nourishment range. Nobody said you couldn’t mix and match!
