I simply hate oiling my hair as it makes them sticky and heavy. Nevertheless, after reading good reviews about the Dove Elixir Nourished Shine Hair Oil, I know I had to get it. I thought of reviewing it for you all! So let us begin!
Rs. 185 for 90 ml
The packaging of this hair oil is beautiful but not sturdy. The bottle leaks and thus the product is not travel friendly! The bottle is made up of glass and is bulky, which is another reason that makes this hair oil Travel Enemy :P
The oil is very light and I use it after washing my hair just to get that perfect shine and softness. It does make the hair soft. The oil stays on for around 5 hours but the effect lasts all day. I just love the beautiful Hibiscus petals in the bottle! Actually, the quantity is actually too much and I am sure I will get bored of it soon. Fragrance may be a problem for some as it has a strong smell of mangoes mixed with clinic plus shampoo (this is what I feel :P )
Now, it claims to give the nourishment of overnight oiling in just 30 minutes (Versus Coconut Oil)! Therefore, I oiled my hair with this and after 30 minutes, tried removing it with shampoo. I required two washes to remove it completely. After shampooing, my hair does become softer and shinier but nothing extra ordinary. It does not help much in controlling dryness.
