In the interest of beauty science, I keep experimenting with new products and brands. But ask me about my favorite ones and they are only a handful.  Dove hair therapy daily shine shampoo is one of them. Why? Because it is gentle on my hair and comes at a fraction of the cost. But price and hydration isn’t all I like about this shampoo.

To know more about my love for Dove daily shine shampoo, read full review:

My Take on Dove Daily Shine Shampoo for Normal Hair


IMG_20150919_110508Dove daily shine shampoo comes in trademark Dove white plastic bottle with bluish font.

The flip open cap makes the packaging travel-friendly and convenient to use.


The shampoo is pearly white in color and has just the right consistency, i.e., neither too thick and nor too runny. It is ideal for normal to dry hair and is gentle enough for daily use.


Best part of this shampoo is the typical mild Dove scent that lingers on in your hair for whole day long.


The shampoo creates abundant lather to effectively cleanse the scalp of all oil, sweat, and dirt. It works equally well on oiled hair. Only little quantity is required at every wash. No wonder, Dove daily shine shampoo is one of the most economical shampoos I have ever used.

Marketing Claims:

The marketing says Dove daily shine shampoo contains nutritive serum to protect and nourish the hair from daily wear and tear.

Protection from daily wear and tear? Really?

Well, consistently using this Dove shampoo every other day and the verdict’s out: I do see an increase in softness, shine, and bounce!

But in terms of daily protection and nourishment, no ways! I haven’t noticed any visible change in my hair strength.
Though I was experiencing post-partum hair fall and have a few dry ends before I began using this shampoo, I’m glad the shampoo hasn’t made my condition worse.

The shampoo makes my hair soft and shiny. It’s also gentle enough for daily use and for this I’m sold on Dove hair therapy daily shine shampoo.

  • Pleasing Dove scent that lingers

R2B Rating: 4/5

Overall Take:

The fact this Dove shampoo provides luster and bounce to hair without causing any damage and at the fraction of the price is a big positive.

  1. I am so glad Dove worked for you. Dove however never suited me. It always dries out my hair or gives me hairfall. But I know ladies who swear by it. Great review. 🙂

  2. This seems like a gentle shampoo for daily use. Lovely review 🙂

  3. I like Dove shampoo, and in fact I am a bit lazy, I use whatever I see 🙂 But you are so right on the cons, saying that it is not good for dry damaged hair, and mine is dry, so I’d better avoid it 🙂 It was good to see it here, so it will spare me some money 🙂 Hope you have a very nice weekend!

  4. Dove never suited me..It makes my hair frizzy 🙁 however i am glad it worked for you 😀

  5. I have tried dove before but it did not suit me… Maybe I should try it again.. nicely reviewed 🙂

  6. I haven’t tried it yet….thanks for reviewing 🙂

    Nice review, my go to shampoo is one from L’oreal, i have dry hair so this may not suit me…

    This is my daily shampoo too! Love that it cleans my hair and lathers well!

  9. I love a shampoo with good lather, even though I know it has no correlation with how clean your hair gets. Having the lather makes me feel like I’m scrubbing all that dirt out.
