As I get older, I have become more and more cynical about the marketing that surrounds shampoos and conditioners - I find the best way to keep my hair in good condition is to use any old shampoo and a well-known brand of conditioner, which more often than not, I purchase from Poundland. This one fell into my hands because I'm currently staying with my mother and she brought it to try. Dove's recent advertising campaign for Pro Age products is very attractive - I love the idea that their campaign is targetting older women - but is there really any difference between this range and haircare products aimed at younger women? Certainly, I think the Pro Age hand and body creams are fantastic and well worth the money, but I'm still on the fence with this one.The claim
I colour my hair to hide the grey; despite this and the fact that it is shoulder length, it is in pretty good condition and usually has a nice shine to it. My mother has undyed and unpermed short hair. Both of us like a bit of extra body when we can get it!The packaging
The conditioner itself is very thick and white - very like the shampoo from the same range, but it is thicker. The smell isn't particularly noticeable - a shame I think, because I love the smell of most Dove products - but then nor is it unpleasant in any way. Not for you if you like your hair to be fragrant though.
I can't deny that the conditioner does as it promises in that it leaves it thick and full. After using, my hair is full of body and looks and feels soft and well-conditioned. My mother hasn't noticed any particular benefits with regard to body, although she thinks her hair is softer and more pliable when it comes to styling.
It currently costs £2.59 for 200ml on the Boots website.
