Intensive Repair Conditioner
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

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.

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!

You hear the "hype", you see it advertised. So, you say...WHY NOT TRY IT. Well, I did. And boy oh boy...it truly does work!!! I purchased the DOVE Repair Shampoo and also the Conditioner. I washed my hair with the DOVE Repair Shampoo and after the 2nd wash I felt it was "different". I mean it felt softer than before. OK.Now the Conditioner. I applied it and left it on for 5 minutes. Rinsed it out...again..my hair felt "different". SOFT. After styling, my hair was soft and shiny. What a difference this first time made! And I continued to use it and now it is very noticeable. I see they have a coupon. It works so well that I would buy it anyway. But a coupon always helps! It really is amazing. A product that stands up to what it says...OUTSTANDING.

Changed formula, added keratin. Awful
As a loyal intensive repair shampoo and conditioner user for YEARS I am disappointed they changed the formula to add keratin, my hairs arch nemesis. If your hair is healthy (which mine WAS from using the original intensive repair) keratin usage can have the OPPOSITE effect on your hair and dry it out as keratin is not meant to be used too often. I noticed my hair started to feel not as soft and silky after I rinsed the conditioner out and it felt sort of dry. Also when it was dried and straightened it felt almost plastic-y and dryer than usual. I also noticed the scent changed which is what made me check the bottles to make sure the new set i purchased wasn't a different version of dove and that's when I realized it said "new" and "keratin" actives on the bottle and instantly knew why my hair was in the condition it was. I actively avoid ANYTHING with keratin in it due to bad experiences I've had with previous usage of products containing it. I'm so upset! No other shampoo or conditioner (even salon brands!) have ever even slightly compared to the intensive repair collection from dove to keep my long hair super healthy. PLEASE change it back! Why change a product which had nothing wrong with it?!

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.
