Even though I have been using Dove products for years now, I have a love-hate relationship with them. I swear by a few of their products while cannot stand a lot of them. When it comes to shampoos, I keep switching and do not stick to just one product or one brand. Read on how this one by Dove fared for me.

My Take on Dove Nutritive Solutions Daily Moisture Shampoo:
I have dry hair with an oily scalp. I hope that makes sense! I recently shifted to a whole new place and my hair has not been coping very well to the new climate. My hair has become dull and hair fall has increased. I wash my hair twice a week normally. As I mentioned, my scalp is quite oily, which means I feel the need to wash my hair more often. But I avoid washing my hair on a daily basis. I don’t like the idea of washing hair every single day as I feel it increases the hair fall; that’s just my opinion, though.
So, coming to the results of this shampoo, it is just a normal shampoo – nothing bad or nothing extraordinary about it. I have been using this shampoo for over two months now. It does nothing to control hair fall but then it never claimed to control it. It cleanses my hair well, lathers well, smells good and makes my hair feel good. Also, my hair looks shinier for over two days. I don’t usually oil my hair before shampooing, so it’s easier to clean my hair in one go only. I don’t feel the need for second application as the shampoo lathers and cleanses well in just one go.
I have skipped my usual hair serum since I have started to use this shampoo, which means this shampoo has made my hair more manageable and moisturised. Due to my oily scalp, my hair turns greasy after two days. I am not sure how healthy it will make my hair in the long run as my hair has become dull due to many other reasons. I don’t see this shampoo doing any magic to my hair; for example it does not make my hair very shiny or bouncy. It claims to make hair five times smoother, which is too much of a claim to make! Obviously, it does not! Yes, hair is softer and smoother but then any normal shampoo would do that. Overall, an average shampoo which can be used daily.
