To protect hair from breakage, Davines shampoo has active ingredients including spinach extract, rich in vitamin A and C, with antioxidant properties that make your hair stronger. The anti-breakage, lustrous conditioner helps smooth and condition long or damaged hair. An apricot butter formula, rich in vitamin A and C, adds shine and moisture to the hair. It also protects hair from damage caused by styling and heat.”
I have never loved the fragrance of a shampoo as much as I love the Davines Melu Mellow Anti-Breakage Lustrous shampoo. The texture of the shampoo is more liquidy compared to say, regular drugstore brands. It feels soft and light on the hands and on your hair and washing my hair has never been such a pleasure before! I found that the shampoo leaves my hair soft and manageable with little or no need for any additional conditioner. My hair feels light and bouncy after washing but sadly, it doesn’t have the lovely shine and luster I get with my L’Oreal Nutri Gloss Light shampoo. Haven’t seen any improvement in the hair fall area though, because my hair still falling like there’s no tomorrow.
While I absolutely loved the shampoo from Davines Melu Mellow Anti-Breakage Lustrous range, I can’t say the same for the conditioner.
The scent of the conditioner is not the same as the shampoo. It smells heavy and cloyingly sweet compared to the light and sweet fragrance of the shampoo. The texture of the conditioner feels more like a mask and it made my hair feel weighed down and I noticed that the oil build-up was extremely fast – I would feel oily within 12 to 16 hours. To make it sorta work for me, I found that I had to use very little amounts (think pea-sized), make sure I don’t apply it even halfway up my hair, just at the very ends and rinse extremely thoroughly. As in, when you think you’re done, go back and rinse again!
I reckon I would repurchase the shampoo based on the fragrance alone but I definitely won’t be repurchasing the conditioner once I’m done with the tub I received.
Note : It may be cheaper to get Davines haircare from Strawberrynet depending on your currency exchange rate.
