Dove Nourishing Oil Care Hair Mask

Guest Review by Sangeeta

When I was a kid my mom would oil and comb my hair everyday into a tiny braid or a cute puffy pony tail. One day she decided I was big enough to do it myself and ever since it’s mostly been a slide down hill. I’ve jumped numerous hair products, some that have done more harm than good and some I didn’t even realize was damaging my hair before it was too late. Over the last year or so I’ve been cautious about what goes on my hair and take a little extra care for it. Natural hair masks have helped me quite a bit in this period. So I thought why not a readymade hair masks and thats when i chanced upon the Dove Nourishing Oil Care Mask?

The product claims to “Dove Nourishing Oil Care Mask gives advanced care and repairs for beautiful hair. Your hair turns rough and dull on the surface when it is damaged from the inside. To restore your hair’s softness and shine, Dove Nourishing Oil Care Repair Mask gives advanced care and repair that your hair needs. Its revolutionary Vita Oils nourish your hair from deep inside and effectively repair damage for 99% smoother hair.”

Dove’s nourishing oil care mask is part of their vita oil care series. It’s a light yellowish cream in triangular tub. It has the typical dove fragrance which as always smells good but is a bit strong. The consistency is thick and a coin size amount is enough for my shoulder length hair. It can be used after using a conditioner or you can skip the conditioner and use this mask. I’ve tried on both and I have used this along with my TBS Banana conditioner and it works even better then. Leave it on for 2 to 5 mins and you’ll find that your hair is softer and more manageable. You can keep it longer if you want. The maximum I have kept this is 15 minutes. My hair behaves better when I use this mask. This is a once a week product and I’m not sure if you can completely replace your conditioner with this. One downside of this product is that it is loaded with silicones and parabens, apart from that a must try product.

What I Like about Dove Nourishing Oil Care Mask

  • Makes hair soft, smooth and silky
  • Removes tangles
  • Reduces frizz
  • Adds a bit of volume to my hair.

What I don’t really like  about Dove Nourishing Oil Care Mask

  • Contains parabens and silicones
  • Fragrance though pleasant is a bit strong
  • Makes hair soft and manageable but nothing more.

 Overall Verdict:  B+

Price: Rs 300 for 200 ml

Would I repurchase this? This was my first hair mask, I quite liked but I would like to explore other similar products as well.

Overall Recommendation: In my experience this DOve Nourishing Oil Care Mask has been one of the nicest products from Dove’s Oil Care range. This Hair Mask makes my hair soft and frizz free,  soft and manageable. I definitely think its worth a shot given the price!
