Review: Dove 'Style+Care' Dry Shampoo & Heat Protectant

Last week I told you about the new line of styling products from Dove. I've been trying them out for the past few days and wanted to give you a quick review of two products from the line.

The first is the Dove Style+Care Heat Protect Spray, which protects hair up to 230C. Heat protectant is one of those products that you can't really 'see' working... so you just have to trust it's doing it's job in the long-run...

There are a couple of things however, that (in my humble opinion) determine a great heat protectant from a bad one. Firstly, it should be undetectable in the hair once you've styled it, not sticky. Secondly it should help hold your style in place throughout the day, and thirdly, it should smell great (always a bonus, right?!). The Dove Heat Protect spray does all of these beautifully. I've really enjoyed using it and it feels weightless in my hair. I've almost run out of my Tresemme version and I definitely prefer the scent of this one, so it'll happily take it's place.

The second product from the line I'm going to be reviewing in this post is the Dove Refresh+Care Dry Shampoo. Now, I have a very sensitive, dry scalp, so dry shampoos usually send me running in the opposite direction. However, when I went in to try out the line with Dove's celebrity hair ambassador, Christian Wood, he told me he best likes to use dry shampoo for creating texture in the mid lengths and ends of the hair, not to combat grease at the roots. He used this in my hair and it looked great, helped my style last longer, but even better... it didn't irritate my scalp at all as it never came into contact with it! If you like to use dry shampoo to refresh your hair too, this one contains less starch than comes in normal dry shampoos so it doesn't look and feel too chalky. Coming from someone who is very wary of dry shampoo... this is a good one. It actually has a similar effect to using a texturising spray that I like from Oribe, which has a price tag of almost 10x the price, so I'll definitely be using this to create my beachy waves in the future (and saving myself a pretty penny while doing so!)

So far I've been very impressed by Dove's new Style+Care styling range, especially considering how affordable the products are. I'm going to be reviewing the two serums here on Friday, once I've had the chance to give them a full test drive so watch this space!

The Dove Style+Care styling range is available now in stores and online here, RRP £4.49*

A big thanks to Dove for sponsoring this post and introducing me to the line.

  3. I've been loving Dove hair care products lately but I haven't tried these out yet. I'm not a big fan of dry shampoo in general, but in stressful times it might come in handy as a refresher for my hair haha :) Lovely review!

  4. I really love Dove's hair care just for the scent. Haven't tried these yet but I'll be on the look out as I do like a good dry shampoo for hiding my roots!

  5. I also have very sensitive and dry scalp, and have always been weary of dry shampoo because I don't want it to look like more dandruff.

    Heat Protectant is essential in my home because I'm a flat iron addict (although I've been laying off lately to help heal my hair!) I hate when heat protectant SMOKES upon styling... seems very counterintuitive!

  6. I really want to try the dry shampoo, it sounds like it'd work great for my fringe, which always looks greasy, even after I've washed it :)xo

  10. I haven't tried Dove's haircare before but I'll definitely give it a look the next time I'm out. Especially since I'm in need of a good heat protectant for my hair.

  13. I'm definitely going to try these, if the heat protect spary is just like the Tresemmé one and better, I'm all in! I definitely want to try the dry shampoo too, since it's not as chalky as most! The price of these is great too. x

  24. These sounds really good…it's a shame because if I hadn't seen this review and saw these products in a shop I wouldn't have gone to look at them, purely because of the boring packaging….just looks like deodorant or something.

  25. What a genuine surprise this is! I really expected you to say these are mediocre/not great products. To read they're actually quite nice is a huge surprise. I haven't thought of Dove outside of deodorant well, ever...this has me interested in checking them out <3

  26. I love how both these products sound. I don't love the effect dry shampoo has on my scalp since I have a dry and sensitive scalp too but on busy days it's such a lifesaver!

  32. So intrigued by both of these products, I'm not faithful to any heat protectants and haven't had a non-sticky one in ages so this sounds fab! I'd like to see if the dry shampoo could knock my beloved Batiste off the top spot too :-)

    Your blog is so amazing! Love reading it and I find it very useful, especially with the drugstore products!
    I would be honored if you could look at my blog wanillablog.blogspot.com and just give me a very quick opinion in a comment on a post or at my email wandabrozova@gmail.com ... It would really be amazing if you could take a moment of your time and just quickly look at my blog!
    My blog was actually inspired by you. I started reading your blog and watching your videos on youtube and I thought that I could start writing my own blog, so I try to post something at least every month.
    You're such a great person, my idol and I admire you so much!
    Lots of love from Prague (Czech Republic)
