Dalan d´Olive Oil Conditioner Review

I get ecstatic when I find good products from other countries being available in India easily. Dalan is a top name in Turkey for their Mediterranean olive oil products that first started with their soaps about 75 years back. Now they have shower gels, shampoos and conditioners. I couldn’t wait for olive oil goodness on my hair.

My Experience with Dalan d´Olive Olive Oil Conditioner:

Oh how I wish this worked for me. How badly I wished. Everything about this product was perfect – abundant in moisturizing olive oil, no bad alcohols or humectants in the ingredient list. Then why didn’t one like even one thing about it after I used it.

First the texture – it is a thick creamy conditioner. I was really happy with that because that would mean easy detangling, but no, I spent almost 7 minutes detangling my hair as opposed to the usual 2 minutes. There was virtually no slip.

The fragrance was okay, a green-y ferny smell that was a bit artificial; a little strong as long as it is in the hair and then it subsided.

Now the next day – oh God! My hair was all frizzy and dry. I could not believe something as good as olive oil did this to me. I had to find out what was going on. And what better than to check up the ingredient list. Yes! There it was. Another culprit that I didn’t know about – surfactants. Lauryl Glucoside and Stearamidopropyl Dimethylamine are both surfactants – they are used to bind the oil and water components of conditioner, i.e., they have detergent-like properties. Nooooooooooooo 🙁 That is the last thing that you want on curly hair – to strip off whatever emollients that you are trying to provide it by conditioning! And I just remembered that I saw a lot of lather while washing off the conditioner, damn!

I really wished the ingredient list was better as this was a good way to incorporate olive oil into my hair care.

  1. Oh, no. I had great expectations from this product Anjana 🙂 Thanks for the review. I now know what not to buy.

  2. Hello, kindly suggest a safe and good shampoo for me and my 8-yr old daughter. Both of us have wavy hair with oily scalp and dry frizzy tangle prone hair. Looking for something sans all the parabens, surfactant etc.
