I've been itching to try Moroccanoil for a longgggg time. I know it's so over-hyped, but I have dry hair, and anything that promises to fix that catches my attention. It's pretty expensive though, and I haven't been able to justify buying it yet. So when I saw that Dove had come out with a detangler spray with argan oil in it, I had to buy it. Unfortunately it was harder to find than I expected! I finally found it at Target, on sale, no less, and had to take it home with me.
The Dove Nourishing Oil Care Detangler is $5.69 at drugstore.com: You get just over 6 oz of product, which is pretty solid. You can see that the product separates in the bottle, with a lighter fluid on top, and you shake it to apply it. It sprays on lightly and very evenly, which I really like.
Smell: I don't love how this smells. I think it's the sweet almond oil in this, because it smells like marzipan. I hate marzipan. Luckily the smell fades, but I cringe a bit when I apply it.
Packaging: Like I said, the application process is very easy because the spritzer works really nicely. I like the bottle--it's simple, but clean.
How it feels: I really like that this has oil in it, but doesn't feel oily when I apply it. It really feels like my hair absorbs it right up, no matter how much I spritz on it.
What it actually does: I use this to detangle my hair and to give my dry ends some moisture. It's really great at detangling. My hair gets gnarly after I shower, and this prevents me from growing dreadlocks, which is always nice. In terms of moisture, I've only been using it for a few days, but I can say that it does help give my hair more moisture. My hair feels softer and healthier when I use this. However, it's certainly not a miracle product. The amount of argan oil in this is admittedly pretty small, so my hopes weren't sky high.
Awkward Chic rating: B+. It's a good detangler and moisturizer that applies easily and is pretty darn affordable. But the argan oil it totes is pretty far down the ingredients list, and I don't think it's a life-changing product by any means.
