I am always on the hunt for affordable hair products that help to increase the volume of thin hair, therefore, I had to try out the Dove Advanced Hair Series Rejuvenated Volume Shampoo and Conditioner. This range claims to nourish and smoothen the hair while enhancing its visible volume, here are my thoughts on whether or not the products live up to these promises.
Both the shampoo and the conditioner come in glossy tubes with purple accents that I really like. As for the formula, the shampoo is a white liquid, which is not too runny and lathers quite well whereas the conditioner has the run of the mill creamy consistency. The shampoo leaves the hair quite clean without making them feel stripped. In fact, if I notice closely, it seems like it leaves behind a thin film on the roots, which might not bother most people but is annoying to me as my roots tend to look oily anyway. The conditioner is very nourishing but does not weigh down the hair or make them look oily. When used as a combo, this duo leaves the hair looking fluffier, smoother and shinier, and does not make them overly dry, unlike most volumizing hair products.
On the volume front, I do see an increase in the volume from my mid-lengths till ends, owing to the fluffy and bouncy effect created by the products. The volume at the roots, however, does not really increase much. I do find it commendable that Dove has released a well-balanced formula that nourishes the hair and adds some volume at the same time. As an added bonus, both the products have a pleasant floral scent that lingers on the hair for a couple of days. Unfortunately, I haven’t found any shampoo that significantly improves the volume at the roots, except for the Loreal Elvive Fibrology shampoo that I have reviewed earlier, but for the affordable price (INR 250 for 240ml) of this range, it is definitely worth a shot. I would recommend these products particularly to those with thin, limp hair and dry ends, provided that you are fine with a slightly silky finish at the roots.
