Dove Advanced Hair Series Review
I was recently sent a sample of the Dove Advanced Hair Series Shampoo & Condition and would like to share my review of this product with my readers.

Now on with the review.
Since this is a sample pack I can only tell you my thoughts on the mini bottles. I like the white, crisp look of the bottles. It reminds me of a fresh pair of clean sheets. I think the Advanced Hair Series Shampoo looks a little more elegant with the faded blue color towards the cap. The product label, description and logo are exactly as I would imagine they would be for the Dove Brand. The cap is very easy to unscrew and replace, and no residue was found through my entire use of the sample.
The scent of both the Dove Advanced Hair Series Shampoo and Conditioner reminded me of flowers. (purple flowers to be exact) I personally thought the conditioner had a more prominent fragrance with a little hint of mint. The smell while in the shower was not overly powerful, but more than I am used with my normal shampoo and conditioner choice. The fragrance lasted well beyond my normal work hours. I noticed that even right before bed time I could still smell the floral scent from the shampoo and conditioner.
Color & Texture
The color and texture of the shampoo & conditioner is what you would expect from the Dove line. Clear liquid from the shampoo and a white creamy color for the conditioner. I did not like the texture of the shampoo, as it felt sticky in the palm of my hands as I lathered my hair. The conditioner texture was perfectly creamy while lathering after the shampoo cycle.
As I mentioned in the Color & Texture section, the shampoo did feel sticky in the palm of my hand, but lathered up pretty quickly. It was not as “bubbly” as my normal shampoo, but definitely left my hair feeling clean. The conditioner lathered into a creamy bubbly mixture. The first time I used the conditioner I noticed that my hair was not as smooth as I would have liked upon rinsing. With this in mind; I decided to leave the conditioner is for about 2 minutes during the next application the next day. Again I was left with my hair feeling like it was rough and unclean. I personally like the silky smooth feeling I get after I condition my hair.
I am very simple when it comes to styling my hair. I am a mother of 3 boys, so it is normally wash, rinse, condition, rinse, add a little mouse and done! This time was no different, I did take a little more time brushing my hair though. I just couldn’t shake the feeling that I had forgotten to condition my hair since it was not as smooth as I normally like it. I added the mouse and continued with my daily routine.
The price of the Dove Advanced Hair Series Shampoo and Condition is very comparable to other products on the market. The price listed below is based off the Wal-Mart.com website on 7/19/2014.
- Shampoo – $4.98 12 fl oz
- Conditioner – $4.98 12 fl oz
I am fairly happy with overall appearance, fragrance and outcome of the Dove Advanced Hair Series Shampoo & Conditioner, however I do not think this is the product for me. It mentions fine, flat hair on both descriptions but the lack of smoothness from the conditioner was the deal breaker. I will have to continue using my normal shampoo and conditioner.
I did receive this product sample for free, however I was not asked and will not be compensated for review. All opinions are 100% my own.
Have you tried the Dove Advanced Hair Series Shampoo and Conditioner? I would love to hear what you thought or think of this product.
