Dove Elixir Rose and Almond oil Hair fall rescue Review



Dove Elixer Rose and Almond oil Hair fall rescue Review
Hello girls!!
You might have seen Dove’s latest hair oil ads going on air and Today, I will review Dove Elixer Rose and Almond oil for hair fall. They have got other variants as well but  I chose this one as it claims to reduce hairfall. 
By the way do you really think they do cure hairfall? I think in most of the cases they don’t therefore, I use it like regular oil.
You can buy this oil for 180 rupees and this is available on drugstores and most of the online shopping websites in India.

Dove Elixir Rose and Almond oil Hair fall rescue Review
What I find interesting about this product is its packaging. It is very interesting for hair oil. It looks more like a perfume bottle and made up of glass with a pump dispenser on the top. I have been thinking, what is the use of a pump for taking out oil. Firstly, it is very tight and it’s such a pain taking out the oil from it. Moreover, no matter how much care you take, the bottle will get oily or when you use the oil and want to take some more, then you will obviously use your oily hands to take out the oil again so, by doing this, the bottle will get oily and Imagine what if it slip out of your hands as it can happens since the dispenser is too tight and the bottle crashes.. Argh!! your money goes down the drain. I really dislike the packaging for that!
Undoubtedly, it looks beautiful but what’s the use of the beautiful packaging when it can serve the purpose well.

One more thing, did you see those tiny dried rose petals at the bottom? I couldn't understand the need to put them there, since no ways they will come out of the pump or will be absorbed in the scalp. :P  might be they have been added to make it look more beautiful or maybe some of their extracts gets mixed up in the oil. :D Sheer genius, who created this :P

This oil has got almond oil and rose oil and it claims to reduce hair fall though they have also mentioned that hair fall due to breakage which means it can make the hair soft and smooth so that there are lesser tangles and eventually less hair fall which I agree as hairfall can be caused by various factors like environment, stress, pollution etc so just by putting some nourishment into your scalp, we can not possibly cure it fully.
I would say we should stay stress free if you want to really reduce your hair fall and stop worrying about the things you have no control over. I know it sounds preachy but trust me friends, I had followed it and condition my self like this long ago.. and since then stress level has come down, while the external conditions may be still the same. Not just your skin and hair, it actually improves the overall quality of your life.
I realized, I got diverted from the topic! :P Anyways, moving back, this hair oil smells good, and just like a regular oil, I use it to massage my hair once a week at night and then shampoo the next day in the morning.Hair felt soft and silky but honestly, there was nothing which I noticed extraordinary about this hairoil which other hair oils a bit cheaper than this cannot do except for it’s unique packaging for a hair oil. Moreover, if you will see in the ingredients list it contains silicones and mineral oils.

I would say it’s packaging is to lure consumers to buy it and feel as if they have applied something extremely good that can solve their hair problems like hairfall, dryness etc which isn’t the case as you can also use almond oil in a normal plastic bottle, much cheaper than this and yet giving equal effects. What say??
Moving on to Pros and cons of Dove elixir Rose and almond oil

Pros
Availability
Fancy beautiful packaging.
Almond oil and rose oil nourishes the hair.
Helps dry and damaged hair 
Makes hair shiny

Cons
Packaging looks good but not at all user friendly.
No extra ordinary effects that an regular almond oil can not do.
Contains Mineral oil

Rating- 3 out of 5

My take: I wont say that the Dove Elixir hail oil is a bad product but it is nothing more than the ordinary hair oils. Packaging is beautiful and attractive though not user friendly and it’s such a pain to take out the oil from that very tight pump which squirts very less amount and prompts you to press it again and again. If you want to try it go ahead else go for any other oil or almond oil. I will not recommend it!

  4. The biggest con is that it has 78% mineral oil! When the ad talks about precious oils, I'm sure they arent referring to the high mineral oil ratio.

    1. Even I doubt what precious oils it contains. It's better to use normal pure almond oil.

  11. When it was launched initially it created such mania on blogosphere. It promised a lot but did not deliver. Your review is apt. The packaging I have to agree is what created a big hype. Sadly the ingredients are not 'Dovey' enough or all natural. That is where the product has failed completely. After seeing the ingredient list, which I am happy they wrote properly, I never bought it.

    1. Absolutely Coral. Blogs were flooded with this. I am not at all impressed with this oil. I better stick with my olive oil or Jojoba oil.

  14. I have been curious about this product for a very long time. I was really tempted to buy it & at one point I almost bought it. But boy! am I glad I didn't! Like you said, I too kept debating over the same issue. I mean, after all a pure almond/olive/coconut oil is any day going to be much better for the hair. & now after reading your review I have finally made up my mind. Definitely not gonna buy it ever! Thank you so much for the review.Helped me a lot. :)

    1. You are right Payel! Pure and organic almong/olive oil is way too better than using this oil with silicones and mineral oils.

    I Too Brought One and When I Read 70% Mineral Oil, I Was Like "Whaaa!"

    1. Thank you Heena! :) No it was not! I guess the packaging also contributes to its hype but sadly its nothing but a pain to use this pump dispenser to take out oil. Pure almond oil would be better to use than this.

    1. Glad you liked the review! I am someone who will not rely totally on skin care/hair care to solve problems as most of the problems can be due to our lifestyle so, I think we should try to change that first and most importantly, that doesn't cost anything.:)

  18. The packaging is certainly attractive but seems like its another ordinary products. I have tried and tested lots of hair oil but nothing to shout about. I am currently sticking with Pantene daily conditioner and I have to tell you that is the best I have discovered so far.

  20. Such a nice and honest review Niesha. I loved your review. Sure the packaging and bottle is attractive but not worth the money. In fact, I have a shop near to my home where I can take almonds and get the oil from them in front of my eyes. Once every 6 months, I get olive oil and almond oil mixed in equal quantities from that place and I use it for myself, my hubby and my son :) Its so good and pure. No more looking back to any other oil :) :)

  34. I agree that a pump dispenser is not very convenient for something you intend to use everyday or may require more quantity of. And i am disappointed that this contains mineral oil. Truly it's something very ordinary in a misleadingly alluring fancy packing. Thanks for the review Niesha.

    ReplyDelete

    1. I am still thinking dear, why they have given a pump as it gives a small quantity and bottle gets slippery which makes it more likely to slip and break. It has mineral oil, so I think we should better stick with the pure forms of the oils used in this range. I would agree that even when I know it is not that good, whenever I see the bottle I still get tempt to use it. blame it on its attractive packaging that makes us think it will do wonders for us.

      Delete
    2. Yes a glass bottle getting slippery is what nobody would want and I am anyways a bit clumsy :) A few years ago i would have been lured too but with age I have become a little khadoos and check a lot before buying. Still I sometimes make mistakes.

      Delete
    3. I used to always fear while using this that it will slip as the pump is a bit tight so when we apply a lot of force, it is more likely to slip as well.
      It's good dear that check a lot before buying as experience comes with age which is a great thing but still we are bound to makes mistakes. :)

  35. The product seems to be really disappointing, Thx for the review Niesha :-)
