I’m quite an addict when to comes to hair products; having curly hair and wanting to tame it drives me to try almost every product I can get my hands on. Today I will face off Pantene and Dove Oil Replacement therapy.
Pantene was a miracle worker for me when it was first released. It helped relax my curls into waves, not to mention its glorious scent. However what would bother me was the texture which was way too sticky on my hands, even after I’d wash them I would still feel the product. When washing my hair, it would be sticky after the first rinse off, which means the hair didn’t absorb it, but merely was coated by it, so technically it wasn’t ‘therapy’. This oil replacement product was my go to choice until I recently tried Dove for the same hair care series. Funny thing is, when i reached for it on the supermarket aisle, I actually thought it was Pantene! To my luck when I got home, it turned out to be Dove. The scent isn’t as delish as Pantene, but the results are equal if not greater. What I prefer about this product is that it isn’t sticky, you can easily distribute it over your hair without the risk of it being more dense on some parts and barely there on others. Your hands come out clean and so does your hair when you wash it afterwards.
Verdict: Dove Hair Therapy – Oil Replacement is the winner.
I recommend using more than the suggested amount, distribute equally on wet hair. You can blow dry your hair afterwards or leave it to air dry, either way you’ll love the results!
