This post is brought to you by
the letter "D" Product Talk by Nuffnang.
I spend most of my time perfecting my "inner beauty" via healthy eating, exercise, de-stressing techniques (which I fail at quite spectacularly) and making small steps towards various self-improvement goals. If you've been reading this blog recently though, you will have noted my recent attempts to lift my game when it comes to my external appearance as well. How can you let your inner beauty shine when it's buried under daggy clothes, lank hair and outdated makeup?
So when Nuffnang offered, I jumped at the chance to give Dove's new Nutri Oil Serum a test-run.
By the way, I love Dove's campaign for real beauty, and the recent Facebook campaign where women got to replace a negative beauty message with a positive one. But I digress...
This product contains a "unique blend" of oils, including coconut and almond oils. Dove maintains that it's:
- Rapidly absorbed and doesn't leave hair feeling greasy
- Deeply nourishes, tames unruly hair and revitalizes shine
- As good as Moroccan Oil Treatment
I have very fine, thin hair and it does love to frizz. Add the fact that it's had chemicals dumped on it to disguise the rapidly encroaching grey approximately every six weeks for the last billion years, and I struggle to make it look halfway decent, let alone healthy and shiny. I was more than ready to give this stuff a whirl.
I used it for four days. The directions say to use 3-5 pumps, depending on hair length, but I found that it dispenses a pretty generous amount and 1-2 squirts seemed to be enough for my sparse mop. It's a no-fuss process - squirt, rub hands together and smooth evenly through wet or dry hair. It's the ends you want to work on, not the roots...
My verdict? There was a noticeable difference after only a couple of days. My hair felt smoother and was less inclined to frizz. Shame it didn't transform my short locks into a Jennifer Aniston-esque thick and long style, but I suppose that's asking a bit much. I can't speak for the third claim, never having used Moroccan Oil Treatment, but it definitely lived up to the first two claims.
I'm going to keep using it and will hopefully banish the dreaded frizz altogether. I'll keep you posted.
Here's a bonus for my readers: The folks at Dove were very generous with their sample products, and I have more than I can possibly use in the foreseeable future (...maybe if I had J.A.'s long, thick, luscious locks.... *sigh*). So I'm giving away three bottles of this great product. To clarify, that's one bottle each to three readers.
To enter into the draw, just leave a comment on this post, sharing the biggest battle you have with your hair. I'll draw three names randomly next Monday, so be quick! Australian residents only, sorry...
Disclosure: This is not a paid post. I did receive samples of the product to review, however no monetary remuneration was involved.
Edit: Entries close at 5:00pm Monday 14th May and I'll post the winners' details Monday evening.
