Dove® Intensive Repair Conditioner (review & giveaway)

While lots of people seem to have different shampoo/conditioner needs based on the season, this is not really the case for me. Yes, perhaps my scalp gets a touch dryer in the winter months but, really, my hair and head are never in the oily camp. Ever.


This is good in that I pretty much never look like a greaseball head. It’s not-so-good in that I simply cannot go without conditioning my hair.


It is not an option.


Long, thick, and color-treated, my locks require some sort of supplemental moisture with each and every washing.


Even those who don’t have perpetually dry hair like me, though, probably benefit from some extra care this time of year. While most of us associate winter with harsh drying effects, hot summer weather can contribute to or affect dry, frizzy hair conditions, too.


I was given the opportunity to try Dove® Intensive Repair Conditioner, designed to leave hair strengthened and resilient to future damage.


Will it prevent future damage? Well, that remains to be seen. But the Dove® Intensive Repair Conditioner feels good, smells good, and does a sufficient job as a daily conditioner. I am not a fan of drippy, runny conditioner products, and this one is thick enough to meet my needs– e.g. when I put a big pile on my hand, it doesn’t all slide off before I can even get it up to my head. ;)

At the end of the day, what matters to me most about a conditioner– or, really, any beauty product that I’m using– is that it 1) is easy to use, 2) does what it’s designed to do, and 3) leaves me looking and/or feeling better than I did before I used it.


Dove® Intensive Repair Conditioner manages to meet those three requirements for me. Was it a life-changing experience? Perhaps not. But I don’t really demand that from my hair products, so it’s all good. I’m looking for something pleasant, functional, and that I can afford. So we’re going to call this one a winner.
