I recently learnt from the wonderful hair team at Root Salon how important good quality hair products are for the health of your hair. And so I was excited to discover the Davines range, an Italian beauty brand who ensure that none of their products have any nasty sulfates (chemicals which are harsh and damaging to your hair and scalp). Davines have a huge range to cater for all hair types, and present their collections in minimalist modern packaging… what’s not to love?! I’ve picked my ten favourite products for you to try, they make brilliant stocking fillers…
SOLU SHAMPOO – This ‘clarifying solution’ shampoo is suitable for all hair types. I found this light shampoo left my hair feeling moisturised and shiny, without any unwanted heaviness.
MINU SHAMPOO – Let’s be honest, most of us have some colour in our hair… to preserve and look after coloured hair, try the Minu Shampoo which I found illuminated my dip dye blonde tips. This shampoo has blossom extract in the ingredients and smells floral and lovely.
NOUNOU SHAMPOO – For curly and brittle hair I would recommend the rich and nourishing NouNou shampoo. This citrusy shampoo will replenish the nutrients in very dry or damaged hair.
NOUNOU HAIR MASK – This rich repairing mask is the perfect follow on from the NouNou Shampoo. I left the mask in my hair for 5 minutes after application and after washing out my hair was wonderfully soft and silky.
MELU CONDITIONER – I’m always on the look-out for a multi-purpose conditioner. The Davines Melu Conditioner was lovely to use, leaving my hair soft and light but also adding volume and shine.
ALCHEMIC CONDITIONER – Bright coloured conditioners can be a little terrifying to use, so when I saw the vibrant purple hue of this product I thought twice about putting it on my head! But the Alchemic conditioner has wondrous effects. It can be used as a mask and left in the hair for 10-15 minutes… in this time it will brighten the tone of highlighted or grey hair. For me, it removed the unpleasant coppery tone of my blonde tips and left my hair looking much more natural.
VOLU HAIR MIST – This leave-on formula is brilliant for adding volume without weighing down hair. The mist has a lovely fragrance that will leave your hair smelling fresh all day.
BLOWDRY PRIMER – I always aim to blow-dry my hair as they do in professional hair salons, but it is impossible. This blowdry primer helps to tame your locks before drying and it adds a little texture whilst also protecting against heat and humidity.
OI ALL IN ONE MILK – This is one of my all time favourite hair products… as the name suggests, the Davines all in one milk conquers every hair conundrum. Apply to towel-dried hair and it will hydrate and nourish your hair whilst also taming frizz and enhancing volume. The little bottle is perfect for taking away on travelling trips.
DRY TEXTURIZER – I choose hairspray dependent on smell. This Davines dry texturizing hairspray has a delicious vanilla fragrance and also provides a natural hold to the hair without being sticky to touch.
