Dove Elixir Hair Fall Rescue Rose and Almond Oil : Review

Dove Elixir range of hair oil got a place in my wish list ever since they were launched. Since I was on a ban then I was just passing time reading all raving reviews about this miracle oil that came in three different variants 

  • Nourished Shine -Hibiscus & Argan Oil, 
  • Dryness Care - Lavender & Olive Oil
  • Hair Fall Rescue - Rose & Almond Oil
Though I needed all the above my major concern was hair fall and so I decided to buy the Hair Fall Rescue version. Read further to know if it did what it claimed.


Description

You can see the '*' after Hair Fall* which explains later that the hair fall rescue promise is only for hair fall that is caused due to breakage ! Rather they could have said it helps prevent hair breakage ! but the term 'Hair Fall Rescue' works better than 'Hair Breakage Rescue' I guess and thus the name. 

The oil is light and flows like water and not being really sticky it is easy and mess free to apply. I apply very little of this oil after hair wash on dried hair to control frizziness and oil my hair completely before I shampoo my hair. Either ways it didn't help much with my hair fall or make my hair better in any way. It did not cause any harm as well. The fragrance is a bit strong and those artificial/dried rose petals just adds beauty to the overall look and nothing else at all !





Likes
  • The oil is very light.
  • Easy to apply and spread.
  • Comes in a pump dispenser and thus keeps the bottle oil free.
  • Packaging is simple and neat.
  • Comes in 3 different variants serving 3 different purpose.
  • Easily available.
  • Affordable.
  • Did not do any harm to my hair.

Dislikes
  • Did nothing to my hair ! 
  • It has 76% mineral oil so the rose and almond oil is just there for the sake of mentioning it in the bottle !!
  • Fragrance is a bit strong.
  • Not travel friendly.
  • False Claims !



Price

The price of Dove Elixir Hair Fall Rescue Rose and Almond Oil is Rs.185 for 90 ml.




Verdict

I am surprised that this did work for a few people , however it did nothing to me ! The ingredients list is not so pleasing too :(  I am glad it didn't do any harm to my hair but still that does not make me happy that I got this one. If you really care for your hair then the normal coconut oil / olive oil should help you and your hair, which is sold for a lesser price. I wanted to try the other variants too but I doubt if I would do that now !
