If you use to color your hair, then this review is for you. Today I'll speak about the range of products I use for my hair. But particularly I'll speak about Dove Colour Care; it really changed the "life" of my hair. But first things first :- )
Blond with tresses, lightened brown or darkened one, blue-black or black to brown - it is clear: you are more beautiful when your hair is beautiful! This is the secret! :- ) the beauty of your hair has its own secrets, a few of them, I will write here today.
»» How I started to use Dove products? ««
Well, by trying everything else; this is the only way that makes you at one point to stop looking : -). Maybe I'll be considered crazy by many of you, but me I'm more than crazy when it's about my hair. I used to have a very nice and thick hair, but during the years because was going white (it's a genetic thing I think, my mother's the same, I say this because I have only 23) I had to color it, and as you well know, this kind of paints are destroying the health of the hair. So after intoxicating it with colors, I had to treat it with some "respect", if I wanted to be happy about the way it looks, and to start some treatments to make him healthy and shiny. After trying and looking thru many products (I mean manyyyyy) I said to my self, a bit disappointed that I was not finding the right one, I'll try Dove Colour Care too, after all I lost so much time spending to find something that will please me, I started to loose hair too, so another more product will bring me more lost or something good and very welcomed in my life, making my searching period to end. I was very happy, let's say lucky this time, to realize a change in the way my hair looks. For this change I have to "blame" the full range of Dove Colour Care, because to be fair, you can not use only the shampoo and to get a "wow" result, as many people expects, after all that's why Dove people made the Conditioner Colour Care and the Mask Colour Care. Ok this means you'll spend more, but at least you know for what, and I can assure you, that at the end you'll be very pleased about it.
Now I realize that I did a good thing looking, and looking, and… until I found what my hair needed, because today I'm not the only one who is happy, even my hair is, its smiling to me (this is how I say all the time :- ) ) by the way its shining.
But too much talk will get you bored, so I will start presenting you these little secrets I discovered during my searches.
»» About Dove Colour Care ««
Colour Care comes in two categories: Colour Care Shampoo for Lightened hair & Colour Care Shampoo for Darkened hair. This to ranges makes everybody happy, because anyone could buy to use it, mine is for darkened hair, because my color is blue-black.
*** The Shampoo Colour Care ***
This shampoo is made especially for the colored hair. Comes to complete the tone you have chosen to "wear" making your hair soft and silky. Because the shampoo contains ¼ hydrating cream, all dove range it's based on this, makes you feel the difference from the first time you used it, the hair is like silken made of, sliding between your fingers. When you start to apply the shampoo you have to have in minded these following base rules: 1) wetting your hair very well 2) applying as much shampoo as needed (depends how long is your hair) 3) get all the hair in the top of your head and massage it slowly, don't rush it 4) once the foam started to become thick, leave the hair to take a break in it at least for 1 minute(I'll recommend 3) 5) rinse out the foam until the hair is clean and you don't feel it foamy
I wrote this rules here, not because I want to offend someone or showing that they don't know how to use a shampoo, just because is very important how you follow the steps and to keep in mind how this product will give the best results. After all we like to have only excellent results :- ) And as we all know, the shampoo is taking care of your hair from the bottom to the top, the bottom here being the hair thread root.
After the shampoo, and all the steps following the shampooing, is very welcomed to use the Colour Care conditioner.
*** The Conditioner Colour Care ***
This indeed, will make your hair more relaxed. I think everyone knows what a conditioner is for, but I would like to mention about this too: - The role of the conditioner is to make the hair more smooth and easy to work with, to be less painful (for some women) to brush it and to feel it more lax. Now that I mentioned this too, I'll continue with "how to apply" for that exceptional result to be noticed. You'll apply the conditioner on your hair, massage it first, until will cover all of it, after you spread it you'll let your hair to feed at least for one minute. (2 minutes will not harm him). Once again you rinse your hair until you don't feel any trace of conditioner.
*** The Colour Care Mask ***
If you want you can apply after the mask, that will complete Dove range, but this is only if your hair is really damaged from the color and you feel it really dry. If so, the same rule, like the conditioners will be kept in mind, only that you have to leave it 3 minutes and rinse-off.
Once you used these products, fallowing all the steps, you'll start to feel the difference. What can be nicer, than to feel your hair, well not to feel it, because will become so light and so lax that will have the impression your head is not in his place(joke) what I mean is that you'll start to have a perfect healthy hair, without tangling any more and starting to shine in its beauty.
*** The package ***
Dove Colour Care Shampoo comes in a pinky-lavender colored bottle, with the silver bird on it (the actual mark sign of dove products). Has 250ml shampoo, pink color, as the package is. On the back of the bottle they are some instruction of how to use it and what kind of results you'll get after washing your hair with it. It's very easy to handle while you are in the shower (or bathtub). The same package style has the conditioner too; the only difference is that the lid of the bottle is up-side-down, sits on it. If you bought the mask too, that one is coming in a pot, but the same, has 250ml.
*** My advice ***
As I said at the beginning, you can not use only the shampoo if you want the very best, but being a product range for every pocket, with such a great result, I think it worth to be given a try. Only if you have a greasy hair, but in the same time you color it, you can use only the Shampoo Colour Care and a mask for greasy hair, that dove has it too. Why I like so much dove? Because till now made me happy, gave me all I needed for my hair; even when I recommended to some friends of mine, the same answers and results I heard. So, why not you too, use this product? Give it a try, and you'll make your hair "smile". My hair is "happy" now for almost one year; this is the period, since I'm using Dove Colour Care, and I'll continue to do so.
Thank you for reading this review, and maybe will help you too for the future.
