We are always looking for reasonably priced hair care that helps with frizz, and now there is something new to try from Dove. Nutritive Therapy Nourishing Oil Care is a collection that includes shampoo, daily conditioner, treatment conditioner, leave-in smoothing cream and anti-frizz serum designed to eliminate dryness and frizz with weightless oils that won’t leave hair lifeless and greasy.
We put the products to the test recently on both fine, wavy hair and thick, curly hair – both with a tendency to frizz, especially in high humidity – and we were very pleasantly surprised at how well the products work, both individually and as a “system”. We tried different combinations of the products with frizz-free results, and we quickly discovered our favorites.
For fine hair, the shampoo, daily conditioner, and a pea-sized amount of smoothing cream is the best system for eliminating frizz without a weighed down or greasy look.
For our testers with thick, curly hair, we like the shampoo and daily conditioner, with the treatment conditioner substituted in once a week, plus daily use of the smoothing cream on damp hair and an application of anti-frizz serum to dry hair before styling. The cream penetrates quickly and seals in moisture while the serum is great for finishing.
The Dove Nourishing Oil collection is available in stores now, and prices range from $4 for shampoo or conditioner and $5 for treatment conditioner or smoothing cream, but the anti-frizz serum is only sold at Walgreens (we wish it were sold everywhere the other products are available), also for around $5.
