But here at All Things Hair, what we love the most about this product is that it’s so versatile. Not convinced? Well, just to prove our point, we’ve put together a list of 5 things you can do with this amazing hair oil. Just read on to discover the different ways you can use it as part of your hair care routine.

5 Ways you can use the Dove Pure Care Dry Oil

1. Pre-shampoo treatment

Like the idea of using a hair oil, but worried that it might leave your locks feeling heavy? Then why not try using it as a pre-shampoo treatment? Apply the Dove Pure Care Dry Oil to damp hair and leave it on for 3-5 minutes before washing it off. Follow with your regular shampoo and conditioner as normal. It’ll leave your hair feeling super nourished and touchably soft!

2. Daily detangler

Find it difficult to tame your hair? Don’t want to deal with tear-inducing tangles? Apply a few pumps of the Dove Pure Care Dry Oil between your hands and work it through your mane. Trust us, it’ll work a treat in coating your hair, making it easier to comb out your tangles and knots. Plus, it has a fast-absorbing, dry formula, so you don’t have to worry about your tresses having a greasy finish!

3. To moisturise

Have dry, dull hair? Whether it’s due to excessive heat, over-manipulation, colouring or chemical treatments, the Dove Pure Care Dry Oil can help restore your hair to its former glory. The product’s formula helps to replenish your hair’s lipids, and is infused with African macadamia oil, which is one of the richest sources of omega-7 (a fatty acid found in your hair’s natural oil). So expect a nourishing boost and a healthy-looking and silky-feeling mane!

4. Weekly treatment

Looking for a more indulgent treat to give your hair that extra little bit of TLC? Here’s a little trick we’ve learnt: try using the Dove Pure Care Dry Oil as a hot oil treatment! Start by gently heating the Dove Pure Care Dry Oil. (You can do this by pouring some of the product into a small cup before placing it in a heatproof bowl filled with boiling water.) Once the oil is just starting to get warm, apply it to damp tresses (your hair cuticles are raised when wet, so it’ll make it easier for the oil to work its magic) and leave it on for 3-5 minutes before washing and conditioning your mane as normal. This will leave your hair feeling extra soft.

Putting oil through your hair and wearing a swimming cap will massively reduce its contact with chlorine – says Unilever creative director and head stylist Dan Lynes.

5. For protection

You might have your beach body on point, but how hair-prepared are you? If you’re planning to do some swimming, before you jump into a pool or the sea, apply some Dove Pure Care Dry Oil to your hair. (Well, we would suggest a swimming cap, but let’s be realistic, how likely is that going to happen?) This is will help protect your tresses from the abrasive effects chlorine.
