Sometimes you try a product that is just surprisingly effective, and that was exactly the case for me with Dove Oxygen Moisture Root Lift Spray*. This product is from a new Dove line that targets fine, flat hair with oxygen-fused, lightweight moisturizing ingredients for a boost of moisture and volume. There’s also a shampoo, conditioner, and leave in foam all of which have me intrigued after trying this product (although my hair doesn’t need that much volume!)
You can use Dove Oxygen Moisture Root Lift Spray on wet or dry hair, although I have been using it on dry hair. If your hair is really fine or flat you may want to spray it on near your roots before styling it, but my hair usually looks okay right out of the shower. I was more interested in how this performed as a “refresher” treatment on hair looking a little flat, especially because it’s an easy to apply, clear spray instead of a white, powdery dry shampoo. I applied Dove Oxygen Moisture Root Lift Spray around my roots, used my fingers to massage it in a bit, and immediately noticed a difference.
The difference in “root volume” I experienced using Dove Oxygen Moisture Root Lift Spray wasn’t over-the-top, but I’m not looking for something that makes my hair turn into a poofball. Instead I feel like it just gives a bit of a refreshing boost to hair that’s lying a little flat, adding in some moisture at the same time (which my hair loves!). There’s no crunchy hair spray feeling, although if you apply a lot of the spray in one place you might be able to feel a bit, but it was pretty much unnoticeable to me. The effect is supposed to last all day, and although I’m not convinced that it does, you might have longer lasting results if you combined it with other products in the Oxygen Moisture line.
One last thing I love about the Dove Oxygen Moisture Root Lift Spray is the scent. Especially if you are using this on hair that hasn’t been washed for a day or two, I like that this has a slight, refreshing scent to it that really adds to my enjoyment using it (and makes me tempted to use it all over my head instead of only at the roots).
My hair doesn’t need a ton of added volume, so I wasn’t convinced I’d care for or notice a difference with this product, but I was surprised. I will definitely be keeping my bottle of Dove Oxygen Moisture Root Lift Spray around for when my hair needs a bit of a boost–it’s always fun to discover a product you didn’t know you needed!
Do you use anything to refresh second day hair?
