Review: Dove - Intensive Repair Conditioner

There seem to have been a lot of nail related blog posts of late, but this is something a little different. 

I have fully used this up now and have made my mind up about what I think. I got a sample free with something which is why I went and tried this rather than my usual Lush / Aussie combo.
[Hair reminder: 34" long, relatively straight and thick, recently bleached and in need of TLC]

Dove describe this product as: Dove Intensive Repair conditioner provides instant deep nourishment and helps prevent split ends and breakages. Dove recognises that the main reason for our hair struggles is damage. That's why we put damage care and repair at the heart of everything we do.
Regular conditioners mainly repair surface damage but some damage lies deep inside the hair fibre, our unique dual-action formula contains:- Treatment with Fibre Actives™ which penetrates deep inside to rebind damaged proteins and reconstruct internally without weighing hair down.
Conditioner with Micro Moisture Serum which intensely nourishes and seals lifted cuticles to protect against future damage. All the benefits of a treatment at the speed of a conditioner, leaving your hair nourished, strengthened and protected from split ends.
TL:DR? Well basically its a quick acting treatment you can use everyday without a build up effect

Overall I think that it is a good conditioner, however it doesn't seem to continue treating the hair. First few times of using it works wonderfully however it must have built up as it didn't seem to be all that amazing after that. I wouldn't repurchase this.

+ Left my hair feeling sleek and smooth
+ Minimises flyaway's
+ Leaves hair smelling nice
+ Thick creamy consistency
+ Cuts down time standing about waiting in the shower

- You can't stop split ends from splitting further without trimming them off, product claims to stop them
- Built up quickly
- I had to wash my hair more often when I used this
