So ,I had this dove elixir for quite sometime but i have never used it because the packaging was so cute that i did not want to open and use right away .But since winter is here and I have no other choice than moisturizing my dry curly hair .So I have been on a quest to find the right products and thought I will give it try .
So,I ripped open this cute little packet and tried using it .AND HERE IS THE REVIEW :
PACKAGING : It comes in a cardboard box with a plastic seal ,I would say the classic dove kind of packaging and inside is a glass bottle which looks like a perfume bottle . The cap is a spray on cap (typical perfume packaging). And the smell is amazinggg … Inside the bottle there are a few petals of hibiscus which makes it look even more adorable .
PRICE :185/- INR.
MY TAKE ON THE PRODUCT :As I have thick,long and dry hair I like to saturate my hair with oils be it any kind of oil .But the problem I had with this one is the bottle is so tiny and that i ended up using half of the oil .The other thing was problem with application ,I had to spray it 8-10 times to get the right amount of product to spread through one section of hair . Apart from that when I applied this oil my hair did not feel greasy (maybe because I have high hair porosity ) It was light and glided on like butter . I left it in my hair overnight and washed it off in the morning .It definitely enhanced shine and my hair smelled awesome even after hours of washing . I would say it fulfilled the claim of nourished shine . My hair being healthy I did not think it needed nourishment but it definitely made my hair look more healthier . It kept my hair moisturized till the next wash.
-Light weight oil .(no oil on the pillow case 🙂 )
-Made my hair shiny .
-Made it look healthier .
-Goodness of hibiscus and argan (my hair loves hibiscus)
-The spray method did not and will not work for me .EVER.
-More chemicals -I like my oils to be oil ..no silicones and parabens please .
-Used half the quantity for the 1st wash . Definitely should increase the quantity .
MY RATING 4/5.
WOULD I RECOMMEND : YES, I would recommend it to all the girls who have lack lustre hair . I would have given it a 5/5 if it did not have the spray on cap (but it looks cute that way ).
