Swatches of Shampoo:



My Experience with Dove Environmental Defence Shampoo:

Likewise all Dove shampoos it comes with a milk-white plastic bottle and has a transparent green cap. I think here the green colour symbolize the environment.  It has a nozzle for the product’s discharge. Its packaging is very travel-friendly. It does not make your vanity bag messy. It comes with various sizes and prices options, you can choose according to your preference.

Besides that, it is a gel-based shampoo and it has a mild fragrance, therefore, it does not irritate your nose and last throughout the day. First, In my wet hair, I applied this shampoo and gently massage it on my scalp with the help of my fingers tips. Then, wash it properly with normal water.

As a result, it cleanses all impurities from my hair and makes my hair more bouncy. But my dry hair becomes drier if  I do not use conditioner, hair serum. Also, it is not able to control hair fall. I am using this almost 1 and 1/2 month but there are not any stunning result comes out. But it is a very good mild shampoo for daily use.



  • Best for daily use
  • Nice mild fragrance, not irritate if you have a sensitive nose
  • Easily available online and offline both
  • Very affordable
  • Cleanse very well all impurities from hair
  • Make hair bouncy
  • Travel-friendly packaging
  • It comes with various size and price



  • Not good for dry hair like me
  • Need conditioner to shield freshness
  • It can not control hair fall
  • It does not give any shine on hair
  • Freshness does not stay long


In conclusion, it is good for normal to oily hair. Mainly who have an oily scalp or thin hair. But if you have dry hair just like me, I am suggesting that use conditioner after washing your hair. This shampoo is very good for daily use. Definitely I recommend this for daily use.
