A few years back, Dove sent me some information about hair damage. The brand had conducted a worldwide survey and found that a whopping 60% of women who experience hair damage don’t actually do anything about it! This statistic blows my mind because many women don’t realize that with the right treatment, you can restore your hair’s strength against breakage and even make it healthier looking in the long run.
The Main Causes of Hair Damage:
Chemical processes like colouring, perming, bleaching and straightening result in hair that splits, breaks and frizzes.
Pollution, sun exposure, cold and dry air all make the hair dull and dry.
Brushing, washing and towel drying often results in dry hair that’s prone to frizz.
Recently, Dove sent me three products to try from the Nutritive Solutions Intensive Repair line. What sets this very affordable haircare line apart from others is that all the formulas contain Nutri-Keratin Repair Actives that repair damage deep inside the hair, while providing nourishment. Most conditioning and repairing shampoos work on the surface of the hair, however this range also penetrates deep inside the hairs fiber to build strong, resilient hair. In fact, this nourishing complex is so potent that it claims to stop 90% of damage from the first use!
Dove Nutritive Solutions Intensive Repair Shampoo (R49.99 for a 250ml)
Aside from the glorious fresh smell, this shampoo lathers really well and works to restore the hair’s strength against breakage. In addition, the formula also helps protect against future damage (if used continuously) and leaves hair looking healthy and strong. I also like that it does not weigh the hair down in any way, and is suitable for daily use.
Dove Nutritive Solutions Intensive Repair Conditioner (R79.99 for a 350ml & R49.99 for a 200ml)
The Dove Nutritive Solutions Intensive Repair Conditioner works to smooth, visibly repair damage and strengthen hair against breakage. It repairs the signs of damage to the hairs surface and, with continued use, penetrates the hair’s strands to progressively nourish, ensuring the hair is stronger so it can withstand breakage. It’s excellent at detangling and improving manageability and can be used daily.
My 15-year-old daughter also demanded that I include how this conditioner makes an excellent shaving cream for legs and underarms (it would, as it softens hair) and allows for a very close, smooth shave #LOL
Dove Nutritive Solutions Intensive Repair Treatment Mask (R79.99)
This is my favourite product from the line because I LOVE a good hair mask.
Daily styling, chemical processes like colouring, straightening etc. take a lot out of our hair. Luckily, it only takes is a little extra care and effort to boost the hairs health and get it looking healthy again.
This intensely nourishing, wonderfully creamy treatment for damaged hair helps repair hair damage inside and out, instantly alleviating the signs of damage, leaving hair looking and feeling healthy, shiny and nourished. Used regularly, it provides progressive nourishment while strengthening the hair, leaving it up to 10x more resilient against everyday damage!
It’s recommended that you use this mask weekly, but I often use it two to three times a week in place of my conditioner. I apply to freshly washed hair, smoothing it in from mid-lengths to tips and massaging through with my fingers ensuring I cover every strand. I leave it on for around three to five minutes and then rinse out.
Do you have damaged hair? Are you keen to put Dove’s claim that this range stop 90% of damage before it even begins to the test?
I have a Dove Nutritive Solutions Intensive Repair hamper containing the shampoo, conditioner and mask up for grabs.
