great for oily *and* dry hair- clean, soft, and silky.
on July 12, 2012
I have sort of a weird hair situation- I have a ton of very fine hair, so it looks thick as it is. And any kind of shampoo or conditioner with tons of additives in it sort of weighs it down.
And while my hair's natural condition can go to the oily side of things and get sort of flat and slab-by looking (if that makes any sense) , I'm a serious swimmer, so I'm in chlorine/salt water at least two hours a day, which strips my hair of it's natural moisture. So I basically need a shampoo that will get all the chemicals out from the pool, replenish my hair after having it soaked in chemicals/salt for two hours, condition it just a tiny bit, and then prevent oil from building up for the rest of the day.
The Dove Energize Shampoo does the trick. It prevents my hair from looking like a crazy, frizzy ball of fuzz right after I shower, yet no matter how many hours I spend outside in the garden or running around in the sun/heat or with a hat on, my hair doesn't get oily. I don't know how Dove found the right balance of chemicals to make this happen, but I'm grateful. After years of either having WAY too dry hair (frizz!) or looking like I did some hot oil treatment and never rinsed it out, this shampoo is perfect at getting my hair super clean, super shiny, super soft, and looking super healthy. EVEN in the Florida heat and humidity, which is a BIG DEAL.
Even my stylist, who got on me for years about the chlorine's effect on my hair, totally noticed the difference.
Good work, Dove.
