I was given the task of trying and reviewing Dove Daily Moisture Treatment Conditioner. I thought this will be a nice change from what I normally use. So I received my sample and honestly even all wrapped up I could smell it, a sweet smell. I thought that could be a good sign, my hair will smell nice all day long.

So, the next morning in the shower I opened up the conditioner (after reading the directions - gotta be serious about this product testing) and that smell was almost overwhelming, what smelled nice yesterday started to smell too strong. Ok, I know it washes out so it should be fine. I used the conditioner according to the directions and then, because I was running late for work, did not dry my hair, but let it air dry. My hair looked horrible. I felt like the conditioner was still in my hair after completely rinsing it out. My hair looked greasy and clumped together, kind of what it would look like when you put too much product in your hair. Ok, so that was not impressive.

So the next day I tried it again, and this time I dried my hair. My hair normally is thin and when dried is fairly straight, with this product it still looked like there was conditioner or something in my hair. The look was not great. So one more day of trying the conditioner and honestly I was worried because I had meetings that day... I used it and then rinsed my hair for what seemed like forever to make sure it was out... and again when my hair was dry it did not look good.

I cannot recommend this product for everyday use, unless you want to look greasy and like you didn't shower. I am disappointed in this product. I was hopeful that I had found a good inexpensive conditioner to use daily. But, when you aren't happy with how your hair looks in the end, then it just doesn't work. It might be my hair type - so if you have thinner hair that doesn't look good weighted down with product, this isn't the thing for you.

I had our family use the Dove Daily Moisture Daily Treatment Conditioner. I have fine hair and found the conditioner to be too soft for my hair, making my hair flat and hard to style. My husband, who has thicker and drier hair, liked the smell and the results of the conditioner. My boys would prefer the conditioner to be packaged with a pump rather then the tube for easy use.
