Like skincare, haircare is something that is incredibly important to me. I was born with the curliest of ringlet curls — ones that are naturally dry, prone to breakage, and now color treated. I went a bit lighter. My bad. I had been using the same few products for a good year now (Moroccan Oil, Alterna, etc) and really felt the need to use something different.
Into the Gloss published this little baby not too far back and I was immediately intrigued. No I don't have the same hair concerns as the author but when someone claims that a sulfate-free haircare line basically changed their life, I listen. I did quite a bit of research on the line, waited to make sure it all felt right and made the purchase.
So yep. That happened.
Davines OI shampoo and conditioner are a complete godsend. They've changed my hair for the better and I can't say enough good things. You don't need to use much shampoo at all and it never feels like it's drying your hair out. If anything my hair feels more moisturized after shampooing which is kind of a weird sensation. The conditioner is incredibly thick and I usually use it in one of two ways:
1. I use a very small amount and condition normally (aka apply mid-shaft to ends and let sit for 2-3 minutes)
2. I grab a scoopful with my hand, apply, and let sit on my hair for a good 10 minutes before rinsing
The first way is great for an every day condition, especially on dry, damaged hair. It doesn't seem to weigh down my hair and the shine/texture I'm left with after styling is beautiful. The latter is amazing for a super rich deep condition which is something I find I need once a week or so. I love that one product can also be multi-use!
Obviously I'm way too excited about shampoo and conditioner but when you have hair that never seems to want to be tamed, you can't help but rejoice over lack of frizz and smooth smooth hair.
P.S. This line is sulfate and paraben free.
