Product Review - Dove Intense Repair Shampoo and Conditioner

   Last year, Dove developed specifically tailored ranges - Damage Solutions to repair damaged hair and Nutritive Solutions to make dry hair feel nourished. The products that I am reviewing here belong to the Damage Solutions category.

    Product Claims: This formula with Keratin Actives help fortify proteins at the cellular level, reduces breakage and gives you strong hair. Enjoy free-flowing, lustrous locks.

    Dove Intense Repair Shampoo:
   Price: Rs. 155/-
   Volume: 180 ml
   Shelf Life: 24 months
   Directions: Apply to wet hair, lather then rinse. For best results use daily and follow with Dove Intense Repair conditioner. In case of contact with eyes, rinse thoroughly.

    Dove Intense Repair Conditioner:
   Price: Rs. 150/-
   Volume: 170 ml
   Shelf Life: 24 months
   Directions: After shampooing massage conditioner through hair and rinse thoroughly after 1 to 3 minutes. For best results, use daily with Dove Intense Repair Shampoo. In case of contact with eyes, rinse thoroughly.

    The Dove Intense Repair Shampoo and Conditioner come in sturdy white plastic containers with flip-caps with all relevant details printed on them. Both the products have the signature 'Dove' fragrance and are just the right consistency - Neither too thick nor too runny. The shampoo does the job of cleansing the hair quite well, getting rid of dirt and grime in just a single wash. The conditioner makes the hair smooth and easier to detangle. Both the products work perfectly well when used in small quantity and are very easy to rinse off. 
   The end result of using this range over a period of time is healthier, well moisturized and more manageable hair which are soft and smooth to touch. Helps marginally in reduction of hair-fall. Easy availability and it's cost effectiveness are cherry on the top!

    Verdict: 4.25/5. Easy on the pockets and gentle on hair, definitely a range worth giving a try!
