Product Review: Dove Damage Therapy Daily Moisture Conditioner

What girl doesn't love trying a new beauty product, right?
So, when I was offered the chance to review the new Dove Conditioner, I signed up.

First let me tell you a little bit about my hair:
My hair is thin and fine, but I have quite a bit of it. My hair is also highlighted. And it's long right now.
I have to use conditioner every time I wash my hair, or it looks and feels dry. But, if I use too much conditioner, my hair will get greasy and limp real quick.
I was sent a bottle of Dove Moisture Therapy "Daily Moisture" Conditioner to review.

First, let's talk about the bottle.
I'm so glad bottles of things like conditioner and lotion have increasingly been designed to have the opening on the bottom. Makes way more sense, it's super easy to squeeze out. I like that. Win.

The Dove Conditioner smelled really great. It has a pure, refreshing smell. It's not an overly girly smell, so anyone can use it.

It's thick and creamy, and lathers easily. The first time I used it, I used way more than I needed to. Oops. A little bit goes a long way. I like products like this, because it means the bottle will last longer, a good thing because you won't have to buy it as often (save $) and you won't create as much waste. Win.

The Daily Moisture Conditioner is designed to help protect hair, and prevent future moisture loss. It definitely made my hair soft, silky and smooth. But the first time I tried it, my hair was limp. The next time I tried it, I used WAY less, and it was perfect. My hair was smooth and not frizzy, but still listened to me when I tried to beat it into style submission with my curling iron.
My husband also tried it. He doesn't use conditioner nearly as much as (I think) he should. The Dove Conditioner gave him so much body, he had a mini-afro. Full disclosure: His hair was long at the time, and it is naturally curly.

This is my first product review, so I hope I did okay, and you feel informed. Now, the fun part for you, a chance to win a Spafinder gift certificate, AND, make sure you scroll all the way down to get a great coupon so you can try the Dove Damage Therapy Daily Moisture Conditioner for yourself, if you are interested.

Is that a picture of you? I'm a little confused because you said your hair is long right now but it's about shoulder length in the photo so I'm not sure. But whoever it is is very pretty! =D
I ONLY use Dove body wash because it is very moisturizing, smells great and doesn't leave behind a yucky film. I guess the same goes for their conditioner!

Based on your review, I bought the Dove shampoo and conditioner. I have fine hair too, and I like it! My hair feels healthier and it doesn't take much shampoo/conditioner--for a good price. Thanks! Karen K

Yes, that's me! I know my hair doesn't look very long in the picture, but it feels long to me! The last time I got it cut was in April, so it feels very grown out. I recently got some Dove body wash with a coupon and I really like it too! So does Michael. :)
