Holiday favourites #7 - Dove nourishing oil care express treatment and leave-in conditioner review

This is the last post in my holiday favourites series.  Sorry if it seems like an odd time to be banging on about holidays when Christmas things are already hitting the shops, but I nearly always go on holiday in September!

My last post is about the conditioning products I took away for my hair.  Although I have oily roots, I have dry ends which can get totally frazzled in the sun and turn a bit straw-like if I don't take care of my hair with some good products.

I've blogged about the Dove nourishing oil care express treatment conditioner before - it's one of my favourite conditioners which I buy again and again.  When I was picking it up this time, I noticed a new addition to the range which is this leave in conditioning spray - it seemed perfect for sorting out holiday hair, so both came along with me.


After washing my hair in the shower I squeeze as much water as possible out and then I apply a big dollop of the conditioner to the ends and mid lengths.  I then leave it on while I wash my body and face before rinsing it all out.  I like that I can give my hair a treatment with this without having to spend ages with the product on my hair.  
I used the leave in conditioner after towel drying my hair.  It made my hair really easy to de-tangle and I actually let my hair to dry naturally nearly every day, which I hardly ever do at home.  It's always easier to dry your hair naturally in hotter climates, but it can still ends up really frizzy.  The leave-in conditioner left my hair pretty smooth looking with hardly any kinks or fluffiness.  I've even used it back at home when leaving my hair to dry naturally at the weekend, and it works just the same, even though it takes a few hours to dry here!

The Dove nourishing oil care range also includes a shampoo, a regular conditioner and a hair mask and they're all currently available on 3 for 2 at Boots.

  1. I haven't purchased this conditioner in a while. Might try the hair mask though. I like really like their treatment sprays. Haven't tried this one yet but I've been loving the blue one for damaged hair. :) x
