Davines

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.

Awful!!!
Purchased

I adore all the Davines products I’ve tried, so when I saw this travel size kit, which specifically addresses long and damaged hair, I was super excited. What a disappointment! I don’t even know how to describe how terrible it was. Both the shampoo and the conditioner smell horrible… like Pine-sol and vinegar and something else really terrible. The shampoo wasn’t intense enough to wash the styling product out of my hair. The conditioner didn’t smooth my hair at all. When my hair dried, it was frizzy and felt like straw. Ew. I’m so unhappy. Maybe it’s my hair type (I have fine, curly hair) but although I love many of the other products from this line, this purchase was a complete waste of money. I will be returning it immediately.

Best hair products I've found for long hair

I found this at a local salon, and it truly is amazing for long hair. It's the only thing that really keeps out the tangles, and keeps my hair soft and smooth. I typically have frizzy, wavy hair, and these products keep it smooth and manageable. I really like the way it smells, so I love it. If you can get the large bottles, the conditioner comes in a pump, but agree the pot is a little awkward. But it wouldn't stop me from using. This stuff is amazing, and my favorite of the Davines line.

Great product except the size
Purchased

Purchased this in January in full size for $24, it is now only a full size sample. Do not waste your money on purchasing a $24 sample when the full size is that price and when birchbox used to offer both shampoo and conditioner for $24.

I have long hair that's prone to breakage and is very oily. The product is beyond fantastic for these issues. I highly reccomend it otherwise.

Not that great
Purchased

I used this one time and my hair dried out. I thought the shampoo smelled "ok" but the conditioner didn't smell good at all. I didn't like this product.

Hair Repair
Purchased

These products TOTALLY saved my hair!!! Ok so the bottles were a bit smaller than I was expecting, but man did those little things pack a punch! I don't think my hair has ever felt so smooth and looked so shiny. Perfect summer SOS for dry hair.

Ineffective

I purchased this shampoo and conditioner from a local salon, and was terribly disappointed. I wanted to love this product because it was refillable and more eco-friendly. I kept thinking that the next time I used it, I would have better results, but no such luck.

First, I hated that the products were in these pots, making it impossible to use without taking off the lid, getting water inside, and then dipping my hand into it to retrieve the product. There is a reason why most shampoos and conditioners come in squeeze bottles - it's simply more convenient. I have no idea why these are packaged this way.

The products did nothing to manage my wavy, somewhat frizzy hair, or to hydrate it. I hated that they didn't lather, and the fragrance and texture didn't impress me either. Basically, there was nothing about this product that I liked. I ended up giving away 2/3 of both "buckets" of shampoo and conditioner because I wanted to switch to a different brand and couldn't return these. (It's worth noting that *every* product I've used since has done far better things for my hair - whether from a drugstore or high-end beauty retailer!)

I cannot recommend this product at all.

Great product, strange smell
Purchased

I was excited to try this product after I received the Love samples in my June box. After one use I definitely noticed that my hair was softer, shinier, and had more body. I've been hopelessly devoted to a pro-V conditioner for years, but this conditioner works much better. Friends even commented on how healthy my hair looked.
The only drawback is the smell. I find it so off-putting that I will not use the Melu line. My hair smelled like I washed it with my dog's flea shampoo for two days. This is a great product, but I plan on sticking with the Love kit.

Pretty Good
Purchased

I like that Davines includes slightly healthier ingredients and liked the scent of the oil. The smell of shampoo and conditioner could be better, but spinach seemed interesting as an ingredient in haircare.

Product really helped!

I loved this product! My hair was dry and brittle and after just one use, my hair was smooth again! The product also smells nice, which is always a plus!
