Hi lovelies, www.beautybulletin.com recently sent me the entire Dove colour radiance range (how generous of them) to review.


This range consists of:
1. Dove colour radiance leave-in conditioning & care spray (R71.95)
2. Dove colour radiance daily treatment conditioner (R71.95)
3. Dove colour radiance deep repair treatment mask (R69.99)
4. Dove colour radiance shampoo (R64.95)
5. Dove colour radiance conditioner (R64.95)

In the picture below you can see the improvement in the overall appearance of my hair and hair colour after only a week's use:




Basically what this range promises is to improve the health of your hair, thus also helping to lock in your hair colour for longer.
I have been using this range for almost two weeks now, and so far I am incredibly impressed with the results and I also have to mention that it smells absolutely heavenly. I'll give you a short review on each of these individual products.

Dove colour radiance shampoo: This shampoo lathers well but doesn't make your hair feel dry and "squeaky" clean, you can actually feel that this is a gentle  and conditioning shampoo. It also contains lower sulphate formulation to help your colour stay vibrant for longer. And an added bonus is, this shampoo can be used daily. So if you are someone with naturally oily hair or you just love the feeling of freshly washed hair everyday, you can use this product without worrying about your colour fading or drying out your hair.

Dove colour radiance conditioner: This conditioner locks in colour and shine, and you can feel it working as soon as you apply it. I wash my hair with the colour radiance shampoo first, then I squeeze out all of the excess water with my hands, then I apply this conditioner and comb it through my hair from just below my roots to my ends. afterwards I tie my hair in a loose bun and leave it on for 3 minutes before rinsing the conditioner out. It makes my hair so wonderfully soft and the light just bounces off my hair. 

Dove colour radiance daily treatment conditioner: This conditioner can be used instead of the regular Dove colour radiance conditioner, and has the same basic idea, to condition your hair as well as lock in your colour for up to 40 washes. I think it is meant to be more moisturizing than the regular conditioner, but in all honestly I prefer the regular conditioner to this one. This conditioner is a slightly heavier formula, and I think if you have thin hair it might weigh your hair down. My hair also didn't comb through as easily with this conditioner as it did with the regular conditioner. If you have thick hair this will work for you, and I have read a lot of rave reviews about this product, but personally I think the regular Dove colour radiance is absolutely amazing. I think if I used this daily treatment conditioner first I would have loved it, but it didn't quite measure up to my expectations after being so impressed with the regular conditioner.

Dove colour radiance deep repair treatment mask: This mask is amazing, I would say that in my opinion this mask is salon quality! It feels wonderful when you put it on, it drenches your hair with moisture without weighing it down and it helps to rebuild your hair and repair the damage caused by colouring. It also locks in your colour for longer. This is by far the best hair treatment I have ever used and I don't think I can ever go back to using anything else again. I am hugely impressed with it! I apply it to towel dried hair, comb through my hair from just under my roots to my ends, but focusing mainly on my hair from mid lengths to ends. Then I wrap my hair up for 5 minutes and rinse. This treatment should be used once a week.

Dove colour radiance leave-in conditioning & care spray: This leave-in conditioner is feather light and doesn't weigh down your hair at all, it's moisturizing and locks in colour and shine. It has UV filters which protect your hair from the sun, keeping your colour from fading. It can be used on wet or dry hair. I usually spray it in when my hair is damp, and then I use it on in between days when I don't wash my hair just to keep my hair looking silky, shiny and smelling wonderful.

I would recommend this range of products to anyone with coloured hair. The only product that I like but don't LOVE is the Dove daily treatment conditioner. And although all of these products are amazing on their own, I would say it's best to use them as a system, as that's how they were developed and for the best possible results they should be used in conjunction with each other.

Thank you for reading, I hope this review was helpful.
