Dove One Wash Challenge

I was recently selected by Beauty Bulletin to take part in their Dove Hair Review Trial. I received a huge package from Beauty Bulletin containing 30 Dove hair products with the goal to repair damaged hair and prevent it from further damage. Myself and four friends each chose four products that are tailored for our hair care needs to trial and share our experience on social media. The rest of the products were shared with family and friends that struggle with damaged hair.


A couple of months ago my hair was highlighted which resulted in my hair feeling a bit dry and because of the weather my hair has been looking a bit dull and frizzy so the four products that I chose to address my hair care needs are:

  • Dove Pure Care Dry Oil Shampoo: it gives dull and dry hair the nourishment it needs,
  • Dove Pure Care Dry Oil Treatment Mask: it contains African Macadamia Oil which instantly replenishes and adds shine,
  • Dove Nourishing Oil Daily Treatment Conditioner: works like a treatment at the speed of a conditioner, leaving hair nourished and silky and
  • Dove Nourishing Oil Treatment Mask: which instantly eliminates frizz.

I will be going into more detail about each product and how it has worked for my hair in the order that I have tried them.

Dove Pure Care Dry Oil Range

The Dove Pure Care Dry Oil range is designed for dull and dry hair it is a luxurious range infused with African Macadamia Oil. It deeply nourishes and beautifies hair with lustrous shine and up to 5x silkier texture.

Oils can enhance silkiness and shine, without being greasy or weighing hair down.

Dove Pure Care Dry Oil Shampoo

I only received one of the Pure Care Dry Oil Shampoo in my huge box and before anyone else could choose it I snatched it up as I felt that it’s best suited for my hair needs as it’s for dull and dry hair.


The Pure Care Dry Oil range packaging really stands out from the rest. The shampoo comes in a 250ml white and shiny gold tube. The shampoo itself is gold in colour and has a beautiful scent that stays behind in the hair after every wash.


I found that I needed quite a lot of product for it to foam up well and cleanse my scalp and medium length hair. After using quite a bit of product it foams up well and thoroughly cleanses both my scalp and hair, my hair feels clean and soft to the touch after rinsing.


Even though the Shampoo contains African Macadamia Oil it doesn’t leave my hair feeling greasy and my hair didn’t get oily as quickly as it usually does. My hair felt soft and lightweight.

Dove Pure Care Dry Oil Treatment Mask

Dove Pure Care Dry Oil Treatment Mask comes in a 200ml round tub which is different to the packaging of the other Dove Treatment Masks. The tub is white with touches of gold which differentiates the Pure Care Dry Oil range from the other Dove hair care ranges.


The Treatment Mask contains precious oil that deeply nourishes the hair for sublime silkiness leaving hair feeling smooth and shiny without weighing it down.


The treatment mask is pearlescent gold in color and smells just as divine as the shampoo, they both smell of luscious oils. The mask feels buttery soft and creamy. A treatment mask is used in place of a conditioner so after washing and rinsing the hair the treatment mask can be applied, massage into hair and leave for 3-5 minutes then rinse thoroughly. Not a lot of the product is needed as a small amount spreads nicely through my hair but when it comes to hair masks I like to put on a good thick layer of it like I would with a face mask. I like to brush the mask through my hair so that it spreads evenly, the mask makes my hair feel so soft that’s easy to brush it through.


My hair immediately felt soft to the touch after using both product’s and easy to comb through, I could easily run my fingers through my wet hair without it getting stuck. Blow drying my hair was quick and easy because my hair was soft and manageable. After blow drying my hair my hair felt silky soft, looked shiny and healthy and was frizz free. Even though the formula contains precious oils the product’s didn’t weigh my hair down, my hair felt light and looked amazing not dull and dry like it did before.


I’m impressed with both products, the Shampoo thoroughly cleanses my hair and scalp while the Treatment Mask nourishes my hair making it manageable and giving it a healthy shine, both products work well together at delivering nourished, shiny and healthy looking and feeling hair.


Dove Nourishing Oil Care Range

The Dove Nourishing Oil Care range contains a unique blend of weightless Nutri-oils which nourishes the hair, smooths up to 100% of roughness and controls frizz. Hair becomes smoother and less frizzy with each use of the Nourishing Oil Care range.

Dove Nourishing Oil Care Daily Treatment Conditioner

The Dove Nourishing Oil Care Daily Treatment Conditioner comes in an off white 180ml tube with a touch of gold and orange on the packaging. The orange wording on the packaging is what differentiates the Nourishing Oil Care range from the rest of the Dove hair care products.


At first I thought that the Nourishing Oil Care Daily Treatment Conditioner was a regular conditioner but to my surprise it is a treatment that works at the speed of a conditioner leaving hair intensively nourished and silky smooth. The Nourishing Oil Care Daily Treatment Conditioner is applied onto freshly washed wet hair, it is kept on for 1 minute like a normal conditioner then rinsed out. I was so excited to use this product as I’ve never used anything like it.

The Treatment Conditioner looks so pretty and smells good enough to eat! The product oozes out in half white and half gold, I always wonder how they package the actual product inside a tube for it to come out looking like that without the two colors mixing. The product smells amazing it has a sweet floral scent that stays on the hair till your next wash. Not a lot of the product is needed you would use the same amount as you would a normal conditioner, once the product is applied I comb it through my hair. It’s so easy to comb through as it makes my hair soft and knot free. After rinsing my hair it immediately feels soft as a marshmallow, hydrated and it’s easy to brush through and drying time is a lot quicker as my hair is easier to work with.


The Nourishing Oil Care Daily Treatment Conditioner is my favourite product from the four Dove hair care products that I have tried. My hair sets straight and sleek after blow drying it, it feels amazingly soft and smooth with no frizz at all, my hair also looks shiny and looks and feels healthy. Not only does this product make my hair look and feel great but also smell great too the scent lasts till my next wash.


This product addresses all of my hair concerns and my hair looks and feels at its best every time I use it. I will definitely be repurchasing this product once I have run out of it. I highly recommend the Dove Nourishing Oil Care Daily Treatment Conditioner if you have dry and frizzy hair, you will love it!

Nourishing Oil Care Treatment Mask

The Treatment Mask comes in a 200ml almost eye shaped tub (most of the Dove Treatment Masks come in this shaped tub), the tub is white with touches of gold and orange.


The regenerating mask with a unique blend of weightless Nutri-oils immediately helps to eliminate frizz while deeply nourishing from within leaving hair supremely soft and manageable.


The mask is used in place of a conditioner, after washing and rinsing apply the mask through mid-lengths and ends, leave on for 3-5 minutes then rinse. It can be used weekly or as often as needed for deep conditioning. I like to use a hair mask once a week. Once I apply on the mask I comb it through my hair so that it’s evenly spread, not a lot of the product is needed but with all masks I like to apply it on thick. The Treatment Mask is pearlescent cream in colour, has a beautiful scent and feels buttery soft and smooth.


I found it a bit difficult brushing the treatment mask through my hair, my hair didn’t feel as soft as it did when using the other products. Styling my hair also took longer as my hair felt a bit dry and knotted easily. To be honest the Dove Nourishing Oil Care Treatment Mask is not my favourite of the four, after blow drying my hair it looked frizzy and dry and didn’t have that healthy shine and silky feel to it.

I’m really impressed with the other three Dove products that I chose as they work well and deliver what it claims. I continue to use the three products and loving the results every time, my hair looks and feels healthy. No more bad hair days in winter with Dove! 😉

    1. Is the soap not harsh on your face? I haven’t used the soap on my face before as I have sensitive skin.
