Dove Frizz Control shampoo and conditioner review

Updated on July 19, 2009

My hair has always been frizzy. It is thick and long almost to the middle of my back. Enough of my hair likes to stick up about an inch off my head to make it look bad. I needed to use a brush with the stiff plastic bristles to get the knots out. That just seemed to make things worse. I did let it air dry, and did not like to use any types of gel though.

It seems like no matter what I do, I can not tame it. Last year when I had some extra money, I had my hair permed with a very large chunk of money. It looked better with a nice wave in it. The frizz did not look quite as bad, but it was still there. The hairdresser suggested I use Redkin fifth avenue ringlett 07 curl protector. It helped to keep the curls in, but I thought my hair felt stiff after use, and did nothing to reduce the frizz on my hair.

I used suave shampoo and conditioner, which just seemed to irritate my skin no matter what type I tried to use. I ended up staying with VO5, which got my hair clean without any irritation. I tended not to try different types of shampoo for that reason. To tame my hair I actually even tried using my daughters suave detangling spray which left it feeling greasy. It did very little for the frizz in my hair. I ended up wetting down all of my hair before going to work, and wetting the top a little at work when I could hoping I didn't get it too wet making it look greasy.

A over nine months later I found Dove frizz control therapy shampoo and conditioner. I didn't even realize there were products for frizz control. By this time, my hair has gotten longer, but I have not had the money to get another perm. The top of my hair is straight, and starting at the ear it starts to get curly. If you Google long hair styles, there are some models that have straight at the top and curly at the bottom. Now I'm dealing with both curly and straight hair, but at least it is not dry.

The first time I used the Dove frizz control shampoo and conditioner, I didn't see a difference. It took a couple of weeks before I saw my hair starting to tame down some. Now about after a month of use, I feel it is doing a good job. I can still see some frizz, but not half as bad as before. Dove does not tame all of it, but it has done such a good job that I do not have to wet it down all the time. It did not irritate my skin at all.

Both the shampoo and conditioner are thick. The shampoo is about just as thick as the conditioner. I believe both have a lot of moisturizer in them. I have applied it liberally to all of my hair, and make sure I rinsed well. I did keep the conditioner in longer. I let my hair air dry, and have not used any thing else in my hair. It feels nice and soft. I no longer have to use the brush to get the knots out. Now I use a pick to get the knots out, which probably helps keep the frizz down.

For someone with oily hair, it may be too much moisturizer though. I will probably still be looking for another product to eventually tame the rest of it. I recently saw on Amazon that Dove also makes a frizz control taming cream. I might eventually try that one of these days.

The bottles look blue in the picture, but are actually purple. The bottles themselves have a feature I do appreciate, since they are both the same color. I wear glasses, and am practically blind without them. I would have to have the bottles practically an inch away from my nose to read them. With the shampoo opening at the top and the conditioner opening at the bottom, I can tell which is which without having to read them. Makes my life a little easier.

      I agree - the Shielo creme works wonders!

      My stylist introduced me to the Shielo Bounce Style Creme to me about 6 months ago and I have been using it ever since. It helps control the frizz, even when its very humid out. It also makes your hair very soft and shiny without weighing it down.

      I have a short cut and I still have lots of body when using this. You only need a small amount too which is great because a bottle lasts you a long time. Just be careful not to use too much or your hair could look greasy.

      I believe it does to an extent. It won't totally control the frizz. It has tamed my hair a lot. Right now I prefer this shampoo and conditioner to suave, pert, vo9, and a couple of others I have tried.
