I recently jumped on the Dry Shampoo band-wagon. I was pretty impressed with the whole idea you could get away with washing your hair less than everyday or every other day. Sounds great! Let’s do this.
However, my first try was filled with disappointment. I bought Dove’s “Fresh and Floral” scented dry shampoo. I was pretty stoked about it and the cashier at the Target checkout said it was her favorite. “Sweet, I made a good decision.” I think to myself.
Excited to save a ton of time in the morning by not having to deal with wet hair before work, I give it a try.
At first notice, it smells, okay-ish, I guess, but by the time I get to work, I’m completely over it. I smell like… low rent. Every time I turn my head and get a little whiff, I get increasingly agitated. My hair smells like cheap perfume on a sweaty gym shirt. Gross. It’s not a light scent either, it pungent. By the time I got home, I could only focus on taking an immediate shower. Now, I know what you’re thinking and believe me, I’m as surprised as you; Dove has a bad scent? Nahhh, can’t be true. But it is true! Dove lied to us! Fresh and Floral is a lie and now I have new trust issues.
What gives, DOVE? Not only am I out the $6 but worst, you betrayed me! You played me like a fiddle and gave me dreams of great hair that smelled wonderful and without too much fuss. But you lied, Dove. You. Lied.
I’ll be waiting right over here for your apology scent, Dove. I’ll even help you name it. How about “This scent doesn’t suck”? That has a nice ring to it, no?
