Dove Advanced Hair Series Oxygen Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner review PINCHme program freebie sample free ingredients beauty haircare

I recently signed up for yet another free-to-sample program, PINCHme. With PINCHme, you sign up for samples according to what you're interested in sampling, and you have to write a review in exchange for the freebie. The first sample I signed up for was the new Dove Advanced Hair Series Oxygen Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner set for fine, flat hair.

Now full disclosure (if you didn't already know) -- I don't have fine, flat hair. Well, flat is subjective and yes, somedays my roots are quite flat because I have that triangle hair thing going on. But I haven't had fine hair since before I hit puberty. No, I have dry, thick and usually frizzy hair.

But in my dabbling with shampoos, I have found that whatever claims a shampoo may have, my hair will react as it pleases. Which means my hair often likes shampoos suited to fine or flat hair and not ones suited to thick, dry hair (which can leave even my hair greasy, waxy and altogether lackluster). And I just so happen to be on the lookout for a new shampoo to try.

The Dove Oxygen Moisture line promises "Moisture with 95% more volume (Shampoo and Conditioner vs. flat limp hair)":
Oxygen Moisture Shampoo is made with Oxyfusion Technology, a new generation of moisture. With lightweight, oxygen-fused conditioning ingredients, the formula rapidly disperses on your hair. It gently cleanses & moisturizes, breathing life into fine, flat hair.
Oxygen Moisture Conditioner is made with Oxyfusion Technology, a new generation of moisture. With lightweight, oxygen-fused conditioning ingredients, the formula rapidly disperses on your hair. It delicately smoothes hair without weighing it down.
I've used the sample (one ounce of each) a couple times now, and I can report that I really enjoy the shampoo. It is indeed gentler than a lot of the other shampoos I've used, and doesn't leave my scalp too dry. The downside is that I can often go two days without shampooing with my other shampoos, but I can feel a slight oil buildup within 24 hours of shampooing my hair with the Oxygen shampoo.

The smell of the shampoo and conditioner is phenomenal -- a really fresh, floral scent that makes me feel really clean. However, it may overwhelm some, as it is quite strong. The conditioner is certainly for finer hair types -- I found it runnier than I'm used to, though a decent enough conditioner. It fared better than some conditioners made for dry hair, but not as great as others. It surpassed my expectations for a conditioner made for fine, flat hair, though.

So from my perspective, the Dove Oxygen Moisture shampoo and conditioners do as they claim -- they offer moisture without leaving any residue or weighted feeling. I can't say whether it prevents flat hair, but my hair did look smoother overall without looking, again, weighed down. I would recommend this set to just about anyone with fine to thick hair who is looking for a shampoo and conditioner that will cleanse gently and moisturize sufficiently.

From an ingredients standpoint, the shampoo contains an odd ingredient for shampoo -- mineral oil. Lactic acid is present in the conditioner. And as expected, the conditioner (like most) contains a couple forms of dimethicone. Both the shampoo and conditioner contain glycerin.

  1. I love Dove products since before, even My mama always telling that her dark spots have gone since shes using the Dove soap.. We love the product because of its mildness and effectiveness just like LifeCell cream, its very effective for us with its natural contents.
