Dove shampoo for curly hair: 4 Reasons to love it

Cleanse your mane with this gentle, curl-friendly shampoo!

Sure, curly hair is cute, bouncy and beautiful, but we’re willing to bet that most of the time, curly-haired ladies will confess to you that they’re constantly facing a hair battle, trying to define and moisturise their manes! Truth is, curly hair can sometimes be a pain to care for (I of all people should know this!), especially when it comes to washing it! But more importantly, how can you avoid the unflattering frizzy halo look? Well, that’s easy! Just use a hair care system that’s specifically designed for those with curls and kinks, like Dove Advanced Hair Series Quench Absolute Shampoo (£5.99*). This shampoo for curly hair is perfect for cleansing and conditioning – and it just so happens to be one of my personal favourites.

Still need convincing? We thought you might. So ahead we’ve listed 4 reasons why we think you’ll love it too. You’ll soon be running to try it out on your tresses, we promise!

4 Reasons to love Dove shampoo for curly hair

1. It’s gentle

The shape of the twists and turns of curly hair means that it’s more difficult for sebum to travel down the hair shaft. As a result, curly hair is naturally more susceptible to dryness than any other hair type, which is what causes it to feel rough and frizzy. But the great thing about the Dove shampoo for curly hair is that it gently cleanses curly tresses, which indirectly helps to avoid breakage – because as we all know, dry hair can be brittle and prone to breaking! And did we mention that it’s also suitable for everyday use? Now, that’s what we call gentle!

2. It conditions curls

Remember what we said earlier? Curly hair is a naturally dry hair type. But fear not: the great thing about the Dove shampoo for curly hair is that when used with its matching conditioner, it not only gently cleanses and provides definition to curly tresses, but it moisturises to help quench thirsty curls, too! And it makes hair feel smoother, softer and improves manageability for up to three days**!

3. It’s infused with some great stuff for curly hair!

The Dove shampoo for curly hair is infused with nutrients, proteins and rare buriti oil, which is naturally rich in Omega-9. The advanced nourishing formula of this shampoo, as well as all the other hair products for Dove Advanced Hair Series Quench Absolute system, helps to smooth frizz and strengthen curl tresses against breakage!

4. It can help reduce frizz

How? Well, as curly hair is prone to dryness, your curls can appear less defined and feel slightly rough. But thanks to its moisturising formula, the Dove Quench Absolute Shampoo can help make your curls look and feel smoother because the range is specifically designed to quench dryness, nourishing each strand and leaving curls 4x more defined***.
