As Summer comes to a close and the crown of leaves start to dry up and fall from the trees, it's important to ensure that our own crowning glory (err, our hair) isn't left dried up and withered as well. All that sun, surf and (in my case) bleach can leave locks dry, frizzy and sadly lacklustre.
In a bid to fix some of the damage I've done to my poor abused, artificially sun-kissed hair, I tried out the Dove Damage Therapy Daily Moisture Conditioner.
(Came with a travel sized Strength & Shine Extra Hold Hairspray. Very nice, not sticky at all.)
The Daily Moisture Conditioner is intended to stop future moisture loss, while leaving hair with smoothness, softness, shine and frizz control and no weight or greasiness. The formula has a patented Micro Moisture Serum which nourish hair, seals lifted cuticles and helps lock in essential moisture. You can find out more about that stuff at DoveHair.com. All I'm interested in is ... does it work?
My hair has been feeling like straw, but I just used a normal amount of the conditioner. It's creamy enough that you don't have to use a whole lot. I usually put conditioner through the lengths and ends of my hair and then comb it through my whole head, so as not to use too much on the roots and weigh them down. I left it in while I scrubbed my face and shaved my legs and did all that other girly stuff, so it had time to penetrate and nourish the hair shaft. I have quite fine hair, so a lot of moisturising conditioners can leave my hair feeling greasy and limp. I found that the Dove Daily Moisture Conditioner was nice and creamy and allowed me to comb the tangles out in the shower easily, but didn't leave residue on my hair. The conditioner has a nice, light scent which isn't too overpowering. The scent doesn't noticeably linger after washing it out, but you can still smell it if you smell the hair closely (which is nice for snuggling).
Overall, after use my hair felt softer, smoother and less frizzy but didn't look limp or weighed down at all, which I was happy about. I didn't have super ridiculously glossy hair, but as it has been pretty fried with bleach, I wasn't expecting a miracle. I am definitely satisfied with the results, especially the fact that it doesn't make my hair limp or leave any residue.
