While I’ve been accused of being a beauty hoarder, I am not often considered a beauty snob. There’s nothing better than finding a fantastic product, worthy of a department store counter, in your local drugstore aisles. My most recent happy discovery is the Dove Daily Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner.
As a lifetime fan of Dove products (you’ll always find a bar of their classic White Beauty Bar in my bathroom), I was excited when I was asked to test a duo of Dove shampoo and conditioner. While I had a lot of faith in Dove, I was also curious to see if their new Daily Moisture formula, could meet my multi-personality hair requirements.
I have very fine and fairly thin, long straight hair. It is also dry, especially after a summer of sun, water, wind and frequent washings. I wish I could get away with every other day washes, but since my hair is so flat and fine, just a touch of oil can make my style look limp and greasy. So I need to make sure my shampoo is gentle enough, and my conditioner lush enough, to keep my dry locks hydrated – without weighing my hair down.
Enter the new Dove Daily Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner system. Both products in this coordinating duo contain the Pro-Moisture Complex that promises to go “beyond the surface to hair’s cellular level for weightless, beautiful results without excess residue.”
Housed in clean, steam-lined white bottles with blue graphics, this Dove duo fit right into my bathroom theme. Even better, they fit well into my hair care routine.
The Daily Moisture Shampoo has a full, creamy consistency that lathers well and really seems to hydrate my hair. Even with the lush lather, it rinses quickly and completely. The scent is bright and sweet with a fruity hint in the shower, and once dry, fades to a fresh clean scent that softly lingers throughout the day.
Meanwhile, the Daily Moisture Conditioner has rich and thick consistency that glides through my wet hair depositing moisture along the way. Again, it rinses cleanly and leaves me with tangle-free tresses that don’t fight my wide-tooth comb.
I’m also a fan of the simple flip-top lids, that make it easy to handle in the shower. The conditioner has its lid on the bottom of the bottle, so even when I’m showering ‘blind’ (without my contacts or glasses) I know I have the right product without reading the labels. Plus, I’ll be able to squeeze out every last drop when I reach the bottom of the bottle.
And reach the bottom of these products I will! The Daily Moisture duo delivered on their promises. They leave my hair feeling super soft, shiny and hydrated without weighing my fine locks down. After a morning shower, my hair stayed fresh and even bouncy all day long. I’ve only been testing a few days, but I think the gentle formula will play nice with my dry hair even with daily washes.
Overall, I’m thrilled with this new drugstore discovery and will continue to reach for Dove when I need some quality beauty on a budget.
