For curly hair care, try Davines Love Curl Enhancing Kit.


Birchbox Breakdown

You’ve been dedicatedly growing out your hair ever since you gave into your urge to go for the Michelle Williams-inspired chop. Now that your locks are long once again, make sure you show them a little TLC (that’s tender long-hair care). This kit includes a team of Davines Melu Shampoo, Davines Melu Conditioner, and Davines Oi/Oil Absolute Beautifying Potion that work together to soften, condition, and strengthen to help prevent breakage of your Rapunzel-rivaling strands. They also work to speed up blow drying time (less heat, less of a chance to do damage).

How it Works

Both shampoo and conditioner harness quatenium-8 to speed up drying time and protects hair from heat damage, as well as polyquaternium-67, which softens and conditions. The shampoo’s vitamin-rich spinach extract strengthens and fortifies, while the conditioner’s apricot butter nourishes. The appearance and health of your hair get an immediate boost from the hair oil with the help of protective silicone and antioxidant-rich roucou oil. The end result? Strong, healthy, lustrous locks.

How to Use

Massage shampoo into damp hair and rinse thoroughly to undo tangles. Repeat if needed. Apply an ample amount of conditioner, leave for a few minutes so it can work its magic, then comb through and rinse thoroughly. Follow with the oil, applying two-to-three squeezes on damp hair to target frizz or on dry hair for extra shine. Adjust the amount according to texture (less for thin hair, more for thick hair). Be sure to coat your strands from root to tip.

I only wish this came in a bigger size. Ive been growing my hair out for some time now, and any product that advertises hydration with less drying time has got my attention. This delivers results. I absolutely love the oil.

Won't use anything else

This kit is freaking amazing! I refuse to use anything else because my hair looks fantastic thanks to this kit. I especially love the Oi/Oil Absolute Beautifying Potion because it makes my hair very soft, smells great and it doesn't take long to blow-dry my hair. And the kits lasts! I ordered this in December and I just ran out of it this week (and I wash my hair a lot). I'm reordering today. Get it!

This smells amazing and my long, growing hair is conditioned and shiny! I would highly recommend this as I've been looking for a product for my hair for a while. Living in the dry Denver climate makes finding the right shampoo and conditioner very challenging.

davines... need I say more

Awesome product samples. Received full- size bottles! Awesome smell n SO high-end!! I have used davines for years, ever since I called them n asked if I could come buy some hair products. They said certainly, but did I know I was calling Italy!! :) They hadn't even started selling it in the usa yet. I love their products n try to hoard/keep them all to myself. Ssshhh... the one secret I don't tell even my closest friendz. ;)

Pretty nice

I love the conditioner and oil, they really help my dry damaged hair feel more healthy and smooth, but the conditioner also causes a lot of build so make sure to use a clarifying shampoo! Not so sure about the shampoo, I felt like when I used a different shampoo my hair was less weighed down, more smooth, and didn't get as oily as it did with the Melu Shampoo. Despite the shampoo, the conditioner and oil are great for my very long hair and will work even better once I get a haircut. They even cut my hair drying time down a lot. If you have long dry damaged hair try these products!

Love the smell!

Love the smell of this shampoo & conditioner set, plus leaves hair super shiny!
The drops are perfect for a sleek blowout. Excellent travel companion.

I purchased this on a whim - I dig the love smoothing shampoo/conditioner, but the description of this set intrigued me so I gave it a try. My hair has been blonde, to fire engine red, to black and back again - and this stuff does wonders. I wish they sold the full size here! I know a lot of folks have been put off by the smell... I actually think it's really nice, it's just uber earthy - be prepared for that.

Love it

I ordered the Davines Melu Kit on a whim and I am so glad I did! I have thick wavy/curly hair that tends to get very tangled and frizzy no matter what I do, but from the first time I used the Melu shampoo and conditioner it has been so soft and easy to comb, plus frizz is basically nonexistent even in the southern humidity where I live. The oil works well too, but the shampoo and conditioner are really where the magic is.

Oi, yes - melu, no.

Love the OI potion - it makes my hair soft and smells great. I'm disappointed with the shampoo and conditioner. I have thin hair and it still seems like I need to use a lot of product to fill my hair each time. The Melu smell is not as great as the OI. I do love Davines products, but this particular one is not for me.

Like what it does to hair, but don't like the smell

The shampoo and conditioner make my hair feel squeaky clean and hydrated but the down fall is the smell. It does not have a nice florally, fresh smell. It is more old lady perm kind of smell so I found myself spraying my hair with body mist to mask the bad smell the shampoo and conditioner has. The oil works like a dream. Even though the smell would hinder me from buy the shampoo and conditioner I would still purchase the oil.
