Packaging: The Dove Damage Therapy Intensive Repair Daily TREATMENT Conditioner comes in a tube with a lid. The tube it not unlike a toothpaste tube but a little bigger with a wider opening. It has a lid that keeps it from leaking. The tube makes it easier to squeeze every last drop out, so none is lost in the bottle.
Product Look and Feel: The conditioner is a thick creamy liquid that resembles something like cold cream when you squeeze it out in your hand. It is not runny at all. A little bit goes a long way.
Scent: The product has a mild perfumed scent. It is not the selling point of this product, but it is not awful either. I am very sensitive to scents and this one does not bother me at all, but it also does not get me excited about using it.
Application: When using the Dove Damage Therapy Intensive Repair Daily TREATMENT Conditioner. A little bit goes a long way. This has oil in it so it is really not like other daily use conditioners. It goes on and smooths your hair out right away. I usually leave it on while I am washing up in the shower which seems to give it enough time to work into my hair.
Rinsing: I have to be careful to thoroughly rinse this from my hair. I have long hair so it can take a little longer but if I don’t, my hair feels greasy. The reason for this is the oils listed in the ingredients. Rinse it really well and you will be happy with the results. If not your hair will look and feel greasy.
When properly rinsed hair is not weighed down and feels soft and smooth, just no frizzies.
Results: When thoroughly rinsed out of my hair this conditioner Treatment leaves my hair in fabulous condition. I normally have thick but really fine hair that since I got grey hairs tends to get really frizzy in spots. I am not sure what is going on but my hair just all the sudden started looking damaged and frizzy, after I started getting some grey. I do not use any damaging coloring only a little loving care which does not strip your hair and just adds color over the grey and brightens it up a bit.
When using the conditioner my hair is completely smoothed out. It is quite amazing really. I can get similar results by adding a shine type oil after I dry my hair but I prefer to have a rinse out product so this is my number one product to keep my hair looking healthy and getting the frizz out.
How often to use: The packaging suggests that this is a daily conditioner but I find that it has lasting results for 3 to 4 shampoos. In between I use a regular conditioner. When I notice the effects wearing off I use it again. Even though this says it is a daily treatment conditioner, I do not agree and it is not necessary to use it daily to maintain great results.
Final thoughts and Rating
Even though I am not thrilled with the scent, I love how Dove Damage Therapy Intensive Repair Daily TREATMENT Conditioner works. It leaves my hair feeling so soft and completely gets rid of the frizzy hair that I normally have. I am giving this conditioning treatment 5 stars because it works better than any other rinse out conditioner treatments I have tried. If rinsed properly it does not leave my hair feeling greasy or heavy. Also I only need to use it every third or fourth shampoo. I have to say that my hair looks and feels so nice I can not stop touching it after using this product.
