Dove Nutritive Therapy Nourishing Oil Care Leave-In Smoothing Cream

RATING (out of 5 stars): 2 stars
COST: $4.49 for 4 fluid ounces
THE SKINNY: Having fine hair and a penchant for knit caps in cold weather, I seem to battle staticy, flyaway hair all winter long. Sadly, if there's a leave-in cream designed to fight static, it leaves my dark blonde hair looking and feeling dirty.
Dove Nutritive Therapy Nourishing Oil Care Leave-In Smoothing Cream generally gets fabulous reviews, so I was eager to try it. Sadly, it doesn't work for me.
This cream does look and feel lightweight coming out of the bottle. It doesn't smell or get sticky either, both pluses in my book.
The instructions say the product can be added to dry or damp hair. I tried it both ways with the same result. My hair looked a few shades darker and flat. I didn't get static or frizz, but my hair did end up looking a little greasy by the end of the day.
Have you tried this product with a different result? Leave a comment and let us know.
KEEP OR TOSS: Toss. No much can you look worse than bad, dirty hair.
