Here’s the deal. Every once in a while there’s an awesome product out there that I’m ready to blog about. BUT I go to the brand website and this product seems to be missing? Did they discontinue it? What’s the deal? I do see it available on other online retailers. I scratch my head and wonder about it but at the end of the day if it’s gone, it’s gone. But being that some retailers still carry it both in-store and online, I’ll go ahead and give my full review. Here’s my take on the Dove Hair Therapy Nourishing Oil Care Detangler.
What I love about this product? It works! I was a little apprehensive at first as I thought this might be gimmicky. The liquid in the bottle basically consists of the oil part that is clear in color on the top layer and the water-based part that is golden-yellow in color at the bottom. To “activate” this, simply shake the bottle so it’s emulsified and spray onto hair. As stated on the back of the spray bottle container: “The unique dual-phase formula contains a blend of Weightless Nutri-Oils, including Almond and Argan Oil, to replenish nutrients as it separates tangles. Absorbs quickly with no greasy feel, leaving hair soft, smooth and superbly touchable.” It can be used on both dry or damp hair. I’ve used it 99% of the time on damp hair like right after I shower. I personally like the smell a lot…it reminds me of a lighter version of some Calgon body spray. My hair remains tangle free for the most part (I have super long hair I’m about to chop off and donate) and it gives it extra shine. It also says that you can use this “even between washes to instantly nourish and smooth hair” but I wouldn’t encourage using it this way especially if you have some length to your hair. I tried it a few times and it started to look greasy, not refreshed smooth hair. I still have my bottle from almost a year ago but I use it about once to twice a week at most. I spritz about 3 times if I want to be really thorough and comb through to distribute it evenly.
What I don’t like about this product? Nothing really. It’s easy to find and decently priced for what you get. I think it runs about $4 at Walmart. A buy again for me if it’s still around when I run out with this.
