Davines OI Shampoo and Alchemic Conditioner

Davines OI Shampoo and Alchemic Conditioner

If you are in to sustainable, eco-friendly, environmentally conscious brands, you need to get yourself some Davines. They are all about sustainable beauty and haircare products (you can read more about their research, development and ethos on their website here), and produce some seriously good stuff. The salon I go to to tame the mane uses solely Davines products, and after seeing how great the results were (and how utterly delicious they smell, might I add) I took the plunge and purchased a couple of things for myself.

Now. For reference. I have extremely thick, long, wildly curly hair which is balayaged to within an inch of its coarse, unruly life. I need all the hydration and colour protection I can get. It is frizzy, it is enormous, and it is friable. Lucky me.

It is, therefore, the ideal hair to see if super-conditioning products actually work.
Davines OI Shampoo and Alchemic Conditioner Review

First up - Davines OI shampoo. Touted as softening, conditioning, and bursting with roucou oil, a deep conditioning ingredient. Pretty spendy for a shampoo (especially when you have yards and yards of curls to contend with). The scent is lovely - quite sweet, fresh, and in line with other Davines products - apparently the company try to make everything smell very similar so that you've only got one scent going on in your hair routine. Clever. The formula is lovely - I do find this shampoo to be quite softening and it certainly doesn't strip my hair. If you have fine hair, this might be a bit heavy for you, but otherwise this is a really nice, if pricey, shampoo.

My other purchase was the Davines Alchemic Conditioner in Silver Grey. These colour-protecting formulas are nothing new - they've been kicking around the premium haircare aisles for a while now - but this one promises a deep-condition, amazing shine and softness to boot, whilst maintaining the tone of your hair.

I don't know about you, but colouring my hair costs a small fortune - anything to maintain it for as long as possible!! There are various colour options here - golden, a chocolatey brown, and a firey red colour enhancer - and I have seen various posts around the internet of people using the red as almost a wash-in toner for a little colour change. The formula packs a punch! I use this conditioner about once a week, and after eight weeks post colour I am still regularly being asked if I've just had my hair done. Win. The purple Silver Grey formula really keeps brassy tones at bay. Honestly, I've used deeper conditioning masks (John Frieda is the high street brand for hair masks, in my opinion) but as a hybrid colour-protect and shine-enhancer, this is just the job.

Have you tried any Davines products?
