Quick and Dirty Review: Dove Sheer Moisture

I get random samples in the mail all the time. So, I figure, why not review them?

Away we go!

Dove Sheer Moisture Shampoo
Dove claims this product is for "normal to dry hair with slight symptoms of dryness" and "for best results, use Dove® Sheer Moisture Shampoo with Sheer Moisture Conditioner."

Product is the unholy child of semen and sweetened condensed milk. Combines the visual appearance of semen with the disturbing viscosity of sweetened condensed milk. Spreads effectively through hair, lathers nicely.

Smells faintly of urinal cakes.

Left my hair feeling drier than when I started. Apparently that's why it's best used with the conditioner.

Dove Sheer Moisture Conditioner
Your typical "white turd" conditioner consistency.

Smells like J and R's Tub and Tile cleaner which, as you know if you've used it, is not a good smell.

Difficult to spread. No real lather action to speak of, so conditioning your entire head is an art and science. Leave conditioner in hair for 1-3 minutes before rinsing, per directions. Hair is left feeling soft and lush when all is said and done.

The Bottom Line: The disturbing consistencies of these products do them no favors, but when used in a pair they do seem to fulfill their promises of softer hair and reduced frizz and flyaways. I would not recommend using the shampoo alone, based solely on the fact that my hair felt worse after using the shampoo.
