Budget Beauty : Leave in Conditioning Spray

Monday, 11 August 2014

A leave in conditioning treatment has and will always be a staple in my haircare routine. I’ve dabbled with a few variations in the past most recently the Redken All Soft supple touch spray – Gosh that’s a mouthful. This particular spray acts like a leave in conditioner/treatment, detangler as well as helping keep my hair feeling very nourished and soft after washing.  At £12.95 it isn’t the most expensive hair treatment out there but I was sure I could hunt down another product similar that you wouldn’t have to purchase online or in a salon.. This is where we welcome the Dove hair nourishing oil care leave in spray. Retailing at £3.59 it’s a lot easier on your purse for a start, as well as being easily available from your local Boots or Superdrug.

Just like the Redken version, the more budget friendly Dove leave in Spray not only helps detangle your hair after washing (Now I have gone a bit blonder I struggle with the tangles more often!) but both contain Argan oil to provide your locks with nourishment and shine, therefore my hair feels extremely soft and in better condition after continued use.  Both are very lightweight in consistency, so you do not have to worry too much about product build up weighing your hair down. In fact I would say, that you can be pretty liberal with the application of the Dove leave in spray on both wet and dry hair. Yes that's correct you can use the Dove spray straight after washing on damp hair, or alternatively use it on a 'no wash' day to liven up and refresh your locks, keeping your frizz at bay. 

As you can 'top up' your hair using this spray it is a great product to take with you away on holiday. Being out in the sun all day, in and out of the sea or pool your hair is gong to become a bit dry and malnourished, keep this handy little spray in your beach bag (or decant some into something like this from muji) so you can continue to use it as you sunbathe! As it is cheaper than the Redken version I wouldn't mind taking it away with me, I don't like to take any pricer products with me on holiday as I have a habit of forgetting them & leaving them in hotel rooms! 

Have you tried this budget friendly leave in conditioning spray? 

Much love


  1. I've never tried any Dove hair products but i've always heard great things, definitely popping this on my shopping list :)

  2. I've not tried either product but am tempted to give the Dove one a go :) xx

  3. I have a Dove one, only from the different range and I swear by Aussie leave-in conditioner. :)


  4. I'll definitely be trying the Dove one at some point, I don't spend much on haircare and usually go for Tresemme hair masks and Aussie leave in conditioner etc - maybe I'll pick up the Redken one and see how I get on! Personally I'd rather spend the money on makeup but as I get older I realise how important it is to take care of your locks and keep them looking healthy and shiny :)
