MyrnaMyrna Posts: 2,332Registered Users Curl Neophyte
Has anyone used a Dove Conditioner?? I dont think there are any reviews of them. I used one this AM and my hair looks perfect, I love it. I am wondering if anyone else has tried one - this was - I forgot the name - it has a pink design, I think it is Revitalizing..wondering if its just a fluke of a good hair day or if I should stock up...

    That is one of my questions, but I think it is, I did not see any cones in the ingredients.

    I used Dove until I went CG. Mine were NOT cone free, but yours may be.

    For me my hair would look good the first couple days, but then it felt weighed down AND dried out.

    But I was still pooing regularly, with sulfate, and the dove condish I was using did have cones.

    Would be interested to hear how things continue for you with it!

    I haven't used Dove in a long time but I use to love the conditioner, I didn't have any issues with build up and dryness and I loved the smell. I'm not particular about cones so any conditioner that works for me is a keeper.

    Hi, Jas, you often turn up in my posts! to you and to the others here who posted, do you know which conditioner you were using?
  • Jas76Jas76 Posts: 2,283Registered Users
    Mine were the damage repair intensive therapy and the damage therapy nourishing oil treatment.

    Both have cones. In fact I haven't seen a dove condish that doesn't.

    Im going home and will check mine carefully, but which cones do yours have?
  • Jas76Jas76 Posts: 2,283Registered Users
    Dimethicone and amodimethicone. But they are a couple years old - perhaps things have changed! Let me know, if so!!

    Just got home and checked mine - it has dimethiconol, which I understand is an "OK " cone?
  • Jas76Jas76 Posts: 2,283Registered Users
    I think that's water soluble?

    Well, I am devastated. It is not water soluble. Unfortunately, my hair looks and feels great today. I guess the verdict is that it may be OK to use some of the time but not all of the time. : (

    You could use it the last wash before you do a clarifying poo or even a low poo with coco betaine!

    I made a post on a new Dove conditioner that is cone free. I haven't tried it yet because I wanted their to be reviews first, but since my Tresemme Naturals Conditioner is almost gone, and I want to try a new condish, I think I will test this one out.

    Here's the tread I made about it:
