Dove Intensive Repair Conditioner {Review & Giveaway}

Recently, I ran out of shampoo and conditioner, and instead of going to the store to stock back up on the same brand I had been purchasing, I decided to deplete the large stash of travel sized samples I had collected over the past 2 years. I was busy comparing all the different brands, when I received an email asking if I would like to try one of Dove's new conditioners.

Um... yes, please! I tossed my sample containers aside, and traded them for this beauty:
Considering the fact that it's summer and we've been doing a lot of swimming, on top of the fact that I keep my hair in a pony tail A LOT (which means that my hair is not in the healthiest of shapes), I gave the Dove Intensive Repair conditioner a run for it's money.

I've always been drawn to the smell of Dove products, and this conditioner is no exception. It's a very clean smell. The conditioner itself is really thick. I applied it to the bottom half of my hair (my roots tend to get oily more easily so I've never conditioned them on a daily basis). I've compared my hair after blow drying and after towel drying and the softness and sheen that the Dove Intensive Repair conditioner leaves in my hair is the same regardless of how I finish it.

One thing that really steers me away from a lot of conditioners is that they are really weighty, and make my hair super oily. I haven't felt this way at all with the Dove Intensive Repair conditioner. In fact, like I normally do, I've gone at least two days between hair washes, and my hair has still looked and felt clean even after 2 days of not washing it. I was really interested to see how this conditioner would handle my frizz, as I tend to have a TON of frizz, especially if I let my hair air dry. I've noticed over the past two weeks while using the Dove Intensive Repair conditioner that my hair has been noticeably less frizzy, even after I let it air dry. This is a MAJOR plus for this on-the-go momma, who often doesn't get a ton of time to sit and blow dry or straighten my hair.

Overall, I really, really, REALLY liked the Dove Intensive Repair conditioner. It was a game changer for me over the past two weeks. Not having to deal with frizz, and not having to worry about my hair looking greasy dirty 2 days post-cleaning were big reasons why this is one of the best, if not the best, conditioner I have ever used. And that's no lie. If you'd like to try out some of the awesome hair products that Dove offers, be sure to click on the coupon link at the bottom of this post. 

Oh, and for your amusement, I thought I'd share what my hair looks like after air drying in a pony tail for a few hours:
Laugh all you want about how ridiculous this picture looks. But you can't deny that there's....NO. FRIZZ.

Here's a better idea of what it looks like when I actually blow dry and straighten it. I love the sheen that it added to my hair.
