My experience with Dove Elixir Rose & Almond oil
I was eyeing Dove elixir for almost 2 months now and due to such severe n harsh winter hitting Delhi, it was all the more important for me to keep my hair well nourished. I have a tendency of hair fall during weather change and coloring has made my hair quite dry also. So, I had to pick this one as soon as I saw it at a local chemist a few days back. Since then I have thoroughly enjoyed the luxury of rose n almond oil. The texture & feel of this oil is not at all oily, very silky to touch and spreads easily in my hair. Not much of quantity is required to oil my hair although I have dense hair. The fragrance is subtle and refreshing, but it’s not like rose water. I find it a little lemony also.

This oil contains dried rose petals, so the essence of real rose stays in the oil, and the dispenser avoids the flow of petals out with the oil, so no worries about petals coming to your hair. Elixir can be used before hair wash as a nourisher and after cleansing as a stay on serum, for me it has worked both ways. I just take a few drops and rub it in my palm and apply it on the ends of my hair, it gives me totally manageable, tangle free hair. It has controlled the frizz also. Let’s sum up the

The bottle’s gorgeous! But I don’t understand one thing, why so much vegetable oil!?

mineral oil is quite disturbing :( i mean why include mineral oil when they’ve got coconut, sesame, almond, palm this that..it’s not just almond oil in this, ingredients are the same in all the 3 variants with only the suspended flowers being different..that too I read in some other blog mentioning the ingredients list as lotus petals in the oil instead of lavender!

what will those ‘natural’ minded people who keep paloozing around ‘mineral oil ‘ and ‘SLS’ is ‘bad’ will do now? this has 7 more mineral oil tahn almond oil.:-D
Its time those ‘natural bandwagon’ stop tripping on their words and stop spreading unresearched claims through blogs against mineral oil and SLS

Mineral oil, no doubt tames frizz and makes it soft. But it’s very temporary and it doesn’t allow other oils to penetrate the hair shaft or the scalp! *pigtail* And 78% mineral oil is too much of mineral oil, I think. People in the olden days always relied on coconut, almond, olive. Yet, they had great hair and didn’t have the kind of hype we have regarding hair nowadays.

Nice review I see here :)
I bought Lavendar-Olive for me
used today…felt same like Shipi said…it made my harsh hair to feel feather light, smooth, silky, tidy and shiny :)
bottle is gorgeous too
till so far was using roghan badam oil and I still like it over this dove product coz of pure almond oil and no other ingredients as its box says and value of product is also fair for badam oil

overall i have felt dove product is over-costly compared to other mineral oils as it doesnt have only olive oil and more over the oil-potion is not thick so used olive oil is also not virgin

the fragrance is awesome. it also gives a silky effect as soon as u apply it. its really a nice product from dove.

Dollie January 20, 2013 at 10:44 am

Packaging, fragrance both really lovely…but there is 78% mineral oil!!! And silicone too! Which might be good in a serum, but for a hair oil, thanks…but no thanks!

I got this product even b4 it was reviewed here…so not really blamng dis review……. tried this product and i hate it to bits bcoz it has stolen the natural bounce my hair …..has weighed down my hair….initially i thot i was imagining thngs but evrytime i used it either before or after hair wash it just made my hair flat, my hair has a very nice bounce of its own (touchwood) which keeps my hair looking good even if i dont put too much effort in to styling it…. and thanks 2 this product it is all gone now…… Gosh!!!…. i wish i never got this one…. :( :( :(
