Review: Dove Nutritive Therapy Nourishing Oil Care Nutri-oil Serum

It’s been ages since the last time I publish a post and I admit I feel quite guilty about it. With so many things going on and with the fast-approaching Christmas, it’s a bit difficult to find time to take and edit product pictures for the blog, let alone write a review about a particular product. But guilt and lack of fulfillment creeping in, I somehow managed to gather all the strength (and motivation) to finally sit down and review this product that I have been using for one month.

I bought this Dove Nutritive Therapy Nourishing Oil Care Nutri-oil Serum for Php 242.00, more expensive than the Human Heart Nature Sunflower beauty oil I used on my hair before this. The latter costs around Php 120 and has many uses thus marketed as miracle in a bottle. I have nothing but good words about the Sunflower oil but like many other girls out there, I sometimes crave for other brands or products in the hopes of finding the one that performs better than the one I am currently using.
Sorry for the crappy photo. I took this using my phone's camera.
As a whole, I cannot compare Dove Nutritive Therapy Nourishing Oil Care Nutri-oil Serum to Human Heart Nature Sunflower beauty oil because they are entirely two different products. The former is geared towards hair care while the latter was created as an all around beauty oil so I am leaving Human Heart Nature Sunflower beauty oil out of this topic. :D

Dove Nutritive Therapy Nourishing Oil Care Nutri-oil Serum comes in a clear bottle with pump. The bottle is sold in a clear plastic box which for me gives this product an edge in packaging as compared to other local products or similar valued products. The serum is very light yellow or gold in color but is hardly noticeable when you pump the serum into your palm. The concentration is just right - not too thin neither too thick that can make you feel like you are putting ordinary baby oil on your hair.

What I like about this product:
There are so many things I like about this product. First of course is the sleek packaging. Yes, I am a sucker for pretty packaging and it always makes me happy seeing a beauty product in an unusually cute and sleek container or tube. The packaging is sometimes what I need when deciding whether or not to buy the product. The bottle of this product looks like it is that of a perfume and won’t ruin the view when placed in a pretty dresser along with other expensive beauty products. Anyway, so much for the packaging... I will move on to the product itself. As what I have said, the serum has a tint of very light yellow or gold but I can no longer notice it when the serum is in the palm of my hand. With this, I never have to worry about white residue in my hair or forehead especially when the product is not spread evenly (shout out to hair cream!).

I expected this product to be thick and hard on the hair but fortunately, it isn’t. In fact, it glides in the hair without problems during application and gave me that light feeling I never felt before, when it comes to hair products that is. It helps tame and moisturize dry, frizzy hair without wearing it down. Bad hair day was my constant companion before but when I met this Dove Nutritive Therapy Nourishing Oil Care Nutri-oil Serum, our relationship is on the rocks now and I am hoping to get rid of it soon. My hair has become easily manageable and no longer has a mind of its own nor flying in all direction because of this serum. I also love that it contains natural coconut and almond oils.

Two or three drops should be enough to a medium-length hair thus one bottle may last a couple of months or more, giving you your money’s worth. It is also available in most department stores nationwide so no need to worry if your supply runs low.

What I do not like about this product:
The only thing I do not like about this product is the smell. Though it is not that overwhelming, I am not a fan of it. I’d prefer an unscented one than this.

Will I repurchase?
