All Hail Davines · Part I


Davines OI Shampoo ($12-26) and Conditioner ($14-32)

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.

What are your favorite Davines products?!

  2. I love Davines! My two favorite products are the oi all in one milk (it leaves my hair extremely soft and tagle free) and melu conditioner. I also like oi oil but it's not the best oil I've ever tried.

  5. I really need to find shampoo that I stick, and stop being so fickle. Both of these sound great.

  6. Love Davines products! Another favourite is Kevin Murphy, their products are amazing (!!) & silicone, paraben and sulfate free!! Jennifer Aniston's Living Proof is also supposed to be really good, especially for curly frizz-prone hair, never tried them myself but I've only heard great things about them. I also have curly dry hair (and yes, felt the need to go lighter...). I usually have 2 different haircare options in my shower, because as the skin the hair also have the ability to get used to the products and they kind of loose their effect. x S.
