Intensive Repair Conditioner
The best conditioner ever!
After trying countless conditioners from the cheapest to the most expensive, this has to be the absolute best I have ever tried. I have been a loyal customer of this conditioner for over 2 years now. My hair needs change as the weather changes but this conditioner has been with me through extreme cold winters, rainy springs, hot and muggy summers, and cool falls. I decided to write a review after coming back from vacation where I could not find this conditioner anywhere and had to opt for another brand that was twice as much money and left my hair feeling horrible! When I came home my hair became an instant wonder after using this conditioner just one time! What a relief! I have color-treated, oily yet dry and damaged combination hair (straight, thick and fine all at once!) and this is the only product that leaves my hair feeling and looking its best without weighing it down at all! I really love this product and highly recommend it to anyone I come into contact with!

Gross ... No other way to describe it.
I've used many of Dove's products over the years and have always been satisfied ... Until now. For almost a month I was having issues with my hair immediately after washing it. My hair was really greasy/coated & I found little clumps of congealed product in it. I have thick, curly hair & believe me I rinse it well. I couldn't figure out what product I was using that was doing this! Finally last week I was washing my hair & went to put the conditioner on but noticed something when I put it in my hand. It had little globs of sticky stuff in the conditioner. That's what was getting stuck in my hair and not rinsing out or coming out when drying & straightening. It was so gross to have to pull those clumps out of my hair at work when I Just washed it. I won't be buying this again and I hope Dove makes sure that this product doesn't have this issue going forward. Very disappointing.

Terrible new formula!
The new formula is the absolute WORST! I've been using this product for about 9 years and have seen it go through many changes, but the first time I used the new formula, I thought I had purchased the wrong product. It smells awful, has a much thinner and runnier consistency, and doesn't get absorbed into my hair. The old formula was thick and creamy and did a much better job moisturizing my hair. Do not buy this product! I am declaring a boycott until the formula is changed back.

Changed the conditioner
I love this product but I am trying to find out why they changed it? I loved that it is super thick and creamy and now it is just runny and I buy at least 3 of the big bottles every week. This change has only occurred over past moth or so. Does anyone know why they would change it?? Thank you all for your time

4 stars across the board!
I have no idea why this product doesn't have a full four stars to begin with. I live in CT, we've had a very dry winter and my hair is taking a beating. I've used every product out there, most salon grade and maybe one or two drug store products. Since I use Dove body wash and it's so soft on my skin, figured couldn't hurt to try their hair care products. By far, hands down, the best conditioner out there. I would get a hair cut and have split ends within three days and totally frizzed out. I have dark straight hair and I use a flat iron every day. I've used this conditioner daily for 3 days now and there is a noticeable difference! My hair is so soft and smooth and the ends are already 50% better. I can't wait to see what another week with this product will do! Even co-workers are saying "You're hair is so shinny and soft looking"! Forget the $40 salon products, by Dove Intensive Repair, you won't be disappointed!

Healthy Hair, Happy Me
I have been using Dove Intensive Repair Conditioner for the past months now and I have noticed that as each week passed I had less and less split ends and flyaways. I color my hair and between that and regular blow dryer and curling iron use my hair was definitely in need of some TLC. Dove leaves my hair feeling clean, soft and silky smooth and has improved the overall health of my long, wavy hair without weighing it down.

I dont like the formula change
Before the change this was my fAvorite product. I highly enjoyed the texture and scent of the product. I was very confused and disappointed when I used the new formula. The richness is gone and the scent is bubble gum like instead of luxurious perfume. Please change it back. Make this formula a new line but please don't discontinue a great product.

Great results without salon costs
Always the brand I turn too. Thanks for making my hair awesome! Nothing else gives me the results I want every single time except this conditioner. I have long, medium thick, black hair which is very prone to frizz and I don't really have the time to spend (or money) to sit in a saloon once or twice a month. So this product absolutely helps to the point where I must always have a bottle in the shower. I suppose you could mix and match any shampoo, but I typically just go with the same line of shampoo (to match the chemistry and everything). I still need to follow it with straightening iron, and get the semi-wavy/straight/messy look.
If you have very thick hair then this product might not do much for you, but for those with medium thick hair that gets frizzy after you dry, I really recommend this.
