A lot of you guys seemed to enjoy my previous hair history post, I promise next time I get boxes out I’ll scan all those old photos too!
So next steps: actually using the Dove Nutri-Oil system. There’s a giveaway at the bottom of this post if you want to try it out yourself too.
This is how my hair is currently, it’s a bit oily around the roots as it was unwashed when I shot this but the rest was in decent condition. The pink needs touching up and I’ve got 3 day old curls >_< I don’t know why I chose to shoot this today!
You can’t even see it on my hand.
So the bottle says use 3-5 pumps depending on your hair length, I used 4 because my hair is still really long even after I cut some off a little while ago. Basically you distribute it evenly through your hair but avoiding the roots then brush through and style however you want. You’re supposed to use it every day in combination with the shampoo/conditioner for the best results. You can use on wet or dry hair and I found it suited my hair best when it was wet.
I found when using it that 2-3 pumps was more than enough for my hair otherwise while it was super shiny it became a bit too wet. Definitely do avoid the roots too, anywhere near my roots gave it a bit of an unwashed result. Lesson learned: less is definitely more! It took a couple of applications before I found the perfect balance to use for my hair type but once I did it was a really nice product to use.
On the bottom 2/3rds of my hair it gave a really shiny finish without weighing it down at all. Like I mentioned in the last post, I was a bit worried it would be oily and heavy but I was pleasantly surprised because it wasn’t at all. The end result felt smooth and had a very healthy looking finish to it.
Done! I’ve been using it for around 2 weeks every day now and while I haven’t seen any long term improvement to the texture or condition of my hair it feels nice going in and works for me as a short term product. As my hair was in quite good shape to begin with so I wasn’t really expecting to be able to see the kind of results you would expect in a before/after infomercial and I’m happy with what it’s done so far. I think as far as hair treatments go this is a good cost effective solution as at $9.99 it’s quite a bit cheaper than a lot of things I’ve used.
And here’s the comparison, before on the left and after on the right. The easiest to spot difference is how much fluffier the right is, I think that’s mostly due to the extra brushing. The right definitely seemed shiner to me in real life but it’s quite hard to capture that on camera.
