Dove Dry Shampoo - quick review
I have been meaning to write a review about this one for awhile but had decided against it time and time again. I want to weigh the pros to using this product as it being great at soaking up any oil in my hair and even got my day three of no washing or water rinsing hair in tip top non oily shape, and helped it stay that way all day long. If you asked me what the scent was exactly all I would have to say is "It smells like Dove." I guess they have their own signature scent that I cannot put my finger on. It covers up any odors that may come from 3 day old hair to the point where my coworker said she liked the shampoo scent I was using and when I informed her that I hadn't washed my hair in 3 days she was really surprised.
Now for the cons, and there are only 2 that come to mind when I use this product. One of them is that I feel it makes my hair feel to thick and a little powdery. I do brush the hair after spraying and even use a fine tooth comb to distribute and brush out excess. I still feel like my hair is too coated in product that it doesn't have any movement at all. Though I have just solved that problem with doing a quick and easy sock bun to hide the stiff hair. Another problem that I get from using this is that the product gets behind my ear and makes scaly flakes that are crusty and bothersome. I really hate that this happens because this is the only con that makes this a deal breaker product for me. I hope nobody else has this problem because I can see this would be useful product to add fullness to baby thin hair. I myself have thin hair but a lot of it so it can seem thicker than it is.
Overall, I can live with the 3 day hair sprayed and thrown in a sockbun but not when I get flaky skin that people will see when I do use the stuff. So I will not be repurchasing this and keeping it away from around my ear area while I use up the rest of the can. On to the next dry shampoo thank-you-very-much! Any recommendations from my reader will be greatly appreciated! Until next time my lovelies!
