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 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.

The oil is great for protecting hair before heat styling, but the shampoo and conditioner left my hair feeling brittle and straw-like. I think it may be the sulfites in them...

I don't understand the hype. I purchased the travel size to try it out. I have long, naturally wavy, color- treated hair. All this stuff did was weigh down my hair and make it smell like an old lady. And it's just too expensive.

Love the softness but the smell is starting to gross me out...
Purchased

This stuff makes my hair feel incredibly healthy and smooth! I've been mixing it in between my normal shampoo/condition routine mostly because the smell is pretty intense. It kind of smells a bit medicinal I guess? Either way, the product is great for silky smooth locks!

Davines Melu is my favorite shampoo ever. It smells like candy! I use it on a daily basis and my hair is super soft as a result. I tried to find a different less expensive shampoo, but i keep coming back to Melu. I wish BirchBox had the full size bottles!

Conditioner is the best
Purchased

This has to be the best conditioner i have ever used. I wish Birch Box sold the full size version instead of just the smaller sizes- I can't get enough!

Great product, but really strong smelling
Purchased

These products were great for smoothing out my hair and keeping frizz to a minimum. I especially liked using them on the days that I would flat iron my hair. The downfall of these products is that their laundry fresh smell can be overwhelming. Definitely not a product for those who are sensitive to strong smells.

I received a sample of this brand and loved it. I decided to buy this one for my curls. It smells like the Violet candies and it works so great!

Overwhelming smell!
Purchased

I love Davines products- I also own the pink and tomato extract yellowish lines. I DO believe this speeds up drying time and I DO believe it delivers on conditioning, softening, etc. I docked a star, because the scent is so overwhelming! Even after I do my hair (heat tools or not), I can smell it. It sometimes gives me a headache and then I become paranoid whether everyone can smell it! This is a great product if you can get over the scent.

Disappointing
Purchased

I received the Davines Love samples in my box a couple of months back and loved them. I decided to purchase this kit instead of the Love ones because it seemed more appropriate for my hair type (long, straight and fine). The scent of the Melu kit is not good at all. The size of the shampoo is not nearly enough to last as long as the conditioner even though I have been using more conditioner than usual. I have more than half of the conditioner left and just ran out of the shampoo. The conditioner does make my hair nice and soft but that's about all I liked about this. My hair is too naturally oily to use the oil included.

Perfect Davines Starter
Purchased

I recently used a few salon samples of Davines hair products and fell in love. This is a great sampler for long, thick, curly/wavy hair. I'm in love with the oil and will be purchasing it in a full size :-)
