Say NO to gaps with the new Dove Intense repair Range with Keratin Actives

Say NO to Gaps!
The New Dove Intense Repair Range with
Keratin Actives helps Rebuild Damaged Hair at the Cellular Level
New Delhi, 29th May 2013:
‘You look exactly the same!’ While it’s great to hear that from someone you haven’t seen in years, you hope they don’t mean your hair. No woman enjoys wearing the same hairstyle day in and day out, much less for years together. We all love experimenting with our hair, whether its various styling products or instruments to make our hair look beautiful. In the attempt to look our best, we end up overlooking the daily damage we put our tresses through. 

Knowingly or unknowingly, hair damage is often self-inflicted. A gamut of factors are responsible for damaging hair, not just on a superficial level but from deep within. Constant and excessive exposure to the sun and daily pollution may strip hair of its natural luster, making it weak, dull and lifeless.
Self-inflicted activities such as blow drying, straightening, perming, colouring, etc. may leave hair damaged. Continual exposure damages the hair at cellular level causing gaps in your hair. This results in recurring hair problems in spite of various efforts women make to keep their hair nourished and damage-free.
Recognizing this need to repair hair damage at a deeper level, Dove introduces the new Intense Repair Range with ¼ moisture milk with the Keratin Actives that goes deep within strands to reconstruct hair by strengthening it at its core. So now with the Dove Intense Repair range, you can have healthy beautiful hair that’s strong and resilient to damage. Dull and damaged hair is transformed into shiny and smooth hair.

Speaking about hair damage, Ms Meena Rajan, R&D Head – Hair Category said, “We all like experimenting with hair, but in the long run, damage takes its toll within the structure causing gaps due to severe damage of keratin. Dove Intense Repair range with Keratin Actives works at the cellular level of the hair structure and helps reconstruct damaged protein making the hair strong and resilient to damage.”
Mr. Srinandan Sundaram, General Manager Hair Care adds, “At Dove, we know that when hair problems keep coming back, it means something is amiss at the cellular level. Signs of hair damage never show up alone. If it’s breakage now then it’s dryness later. New Dove Intense Repair with Keratin Actives goes deep within strands to repair damage”

It may seem that understanding what causes ‘damage’ is half the battle against it but to win the other half, you need expert-care. So, say no to gaps. New Dove Intense Repair Range reconstructs hair at the cellular level making it strong and beautiful.
Say No to damage!

My take on Dove Essential Nourishment body lotion: The body lotion is a thick, creamy lotion, white in color. It has a smooth texture, and it spreads, easily. Also, it gets absorbed into the skin by almost 90%, leaving behind smooth, moisturised skin, soft to touch. It keeps the skin hydrated almost the whole day. The fragrance is mild, and has a mix of floral and musky tones to it.

Dove Intense Repair shampoo and conditioner- Review

Hi girls!!!
Today I’m reviewing the Dove Intense Repair shampoo and conditioner. Since I never use a shampoo without the conditioner from the same range, I feel it is better to review the whole range together, rather than reviewing the individual products. So here’s the review for the Dove intense repair products.




Dove Intense Repair Shampoo


About Dove Intense Repair shampoo:


Price: Rs. 123 for 200mL

Packaging: The shampoo comes in a white, curvy plastic bottle, with a flip-top cap. The packaging is simple, chic and easy to travel with.


Ingredients and directions for usage:


Texture/ consistency/ fragrance: The shampoo has a runny consistency, though not very runny. It is smooth, texture wise, and on a closer look, the shampoo seems to have some shimmer particles to it. I wonder why a shampoo has shimmer particles, but never mind! They do not stick to the hair. The fragrance is nothing to boast about. It smells like a ‘shampoo’ usually does. Can’t describe here.


Dove Intense Repair Conditioner


About Dove Intense Repair conditioner:



Price: Rs. 64 for 90mL

Packaging: The conditioner is housed in an inverted, squeezy tube, which is white in color. The tube has a flip-top cap, and is again easy to carry.


Ingredients and directions for usage:


Texture/ consistency/ fragrance: The conditioner is white in color, and of thick consistency (see above pic), and is easy to use. Smells similar to the shampoo.
My experience with Dove Intense Repair shampoo and conditioner: I started using this range at a time when my hair was severely damaged, dry, brittle, and I was suffering from a hell lot of hairfall (because of the Matrix Opticare range). The Dove Intense Repair shampoo and conditioner has been my saviour! I’ve been using this range for more than 6 weeks now, and the hair-fall is reduced by upto 95%, my hair looks much better now, and split ends are also reduced (split end reduction is more visible, probably because I started using this after a hair-cut). But all in all, I am loving this shampoo and conditioner for now. No complaints as such, other than the fact that these are loaded with chemicals.
Pros of Dove Intense Repair shampoo and conditioner:
·         My hair looks shiny (probably because of the silicones in these L)
·         Reduction in split ends
·         Major reduction in hair fall. So if you don’t have hair-fall, you can be sure that using these won’t result in hair fall J
·         Controls frizz moderately
·         Nourishes the hair, making them soft to touch
·         Pocket-friendly price
·         Easily available everywhere
·         Travel friendly packaging
Cons of Dove Intense Repair shampoo and conditioner:
·         Lots of chemicals, including silicones
Verdict: Do try Dove Intense Repair shampoo and conditioner if you have dry, damaged hair.
Rating: Overall rating for Dove Intense Repair shampoo and conditioner: 8.5/10
