Dove Damage Therapy Conditioner: Review & Sweepstakes

I confess: I love Dove products.  

 I have used them for years, 
from the bar soaps to the deodorants 
and everything in between.
So I was excited for the opportunity to review another Dove product.
This time, it was the Dove Damage Therapy Intensive Repair Daily Treatment Conditioner.

You may notice the package is all bent out of shape.  
That's because, by the time I took the picture, we'd already used it a LOT!  

When it arrived in the mail, the first thing I did was pop the cap and smell it.  It smells wonderful.  I wish I knew how to describe it, but it's not a fruity or floral scent.  Just a very clean, soap-like aroma.  Love it!

It's a thick yet weightless formula.  I condition my hair every time I wash it because I like for my hair to feel soft and free of tangles.  This conditioner was perfect for that!

We also took it camping with us last weekend.  I liked that it was in a lightweight, portable container.  It made it really easy to toss in the caddy and bring it along.
We swam in chlorinated water and lake water, and baked in the sun.  
Our hair definitely needed repair and protection, after all of that abuse!

After my 16 year old daughter, Shelbie, used it for the first time, I asked her how she liked it.
She said that she hadn't styled her hair after using it (obviously, since we were camping), but her hair definitely felt soft and she was able to comb through it easily and had no tangles.
Our hair looked great and never had that straw-like feeling it so often gets in the summer after the typical summer activities in Florida.

Instead of the dry, rough hair we often experience at this time of the year, 
our hair was silky-smooth.  

Dove uses a patented technology to achieve this; it penetrates deep inside the hair strand, helping rebind damaged proteins.
The patented Micromoisture Serum targets damage, 
repairing the surface of hair by sealing lifted cuticles.
It's available in two daily treatment conditioners:
a nourishing oil care daily treatment conditioner as well as the intensive repair daily treatment conditioner.
There are also other formulas that I'd like to try, like the Color Repair Conditioner - 
Mama colors OFTEN to cover up the gray!

Many conditioners that I've used in the past for repair of damage and dryness left my hair greasy.  It can be hard to nourish and moisturize your hair without leaving it oily as a result.  But Dove succeeded in that area as well.  My hair is soft, smooth, silky and shiny - not weighted down with oil.  

It feels great, and I think it looks pretty good!
