Give your hair a double dose of moisture with Davines Love Smoothing Conditioner.

Davines

Birchbox Breakdown

As a last-minute defense against frizz, we’ve been known to sport a topknot and be done with it, but sometimes we just want to let our hair down. Luckily, this gentle shampoo is specially formulated to tame frizzed-out and tangle-prone hair. An infusion of olive extract—from Minuta olives grown in Messina, Italy—nourishes and enriches the hair with fatty acids, vitamin E, and polyphenols. That leaves our strands smooth for a style that’s more manageable, which helps get us dressed up and out the door faster.

How to Use

Massage into damp hair and rinse thoroughly to undo tangles. Repeat if needed.

The old pink Love Shampoo was better
Purchased

I just got this shampoo last week as I've been waiting for it to come back in stock. The new formula (the purple love shampoo) is not as good as the pink stuff. It did not smooth as well; and was a little drying and did not leave my hair as soft. It's still good; but not nearly as good. After I am done with this bottle; I will be changing brands.

Such a disappointment
Purchased

The old pink formula was my all-time favorite shampoo. I was so excited to see that Birchbox had restocked it until I tried the new formula. This formula doesn't lather as well and isn't as effective--I feel like I have to wash my hair with twice as much product to really get it clean. I've switched to the OI shampoo instead, which is at least more effective, though not the miracle formula this used to be.

If it is the "Love smoothing shampoo"

Is anyone can tell me if this brand change this shampoo line's color?
It use to be light pink.
Smells like peony, very lovely, and make my hair soft.
Love it, but I really need to know this brand changed the color or anything else of this shampoo.

Great smell and frizz reducing!

The smell of this product is amazing. Definitely leaves hair smoother and less frizzy after use. Lightweight product. Would recommend to anyone with slightly frizzy and/ or curly hair. Great for thin hair too.

Love LOVE Shampoo

I received a sample of the old formula/format in a previous Birchbox and loved it, but I recently got this new version and I have to say, it is even better! It still has that great, creamy formula that makes your hair feel amazing but it now smells AMAZING.

Daviness smooth shampoo. Great product!
Purchased

I tried all of the Davines shampoos when I purchased the trio trial set from
Birch Box. The smoothing shampoo has been great for my hair. I am 55, color my hair and this fights those squiggly grays! Doesn't weigh my hair down and the formula is gentle because my hair is really healthy. We also have well water but this product appears to clean the minerals off as well. No regrets! Great product.

Best shampoo ever!!
Purchased

I first was introduced to this shampoo when my blow out bar used it on my hair. I loved the smell and asked what it was and then immediately bought it to use at home once I saw the effect that it had on my hair. This shampoo really takes my frizzy hair and gets my blow outs to be super smooth. I absolutely love it and will not use anything else

Fine hair but lots of it!

I love the shampoo! It smells great cleans my hair really well, and doesn't cause oily a mess at all. I have a lot of fine hair and it gets oily very easily. I will purchase this

Highly Cleansing, No Noticeable Smoothing

Though entirely free of SLS (Sodium Lauryl—or Laureth—Sulfate), this shampoo boasts a very heavy lather. For users who enjoy or prefer it, it's ultimately quite gentle for such a strong foam. For those who prefer low-lather or no-lather cleansing products, I'd avoid this. As for its smoothing qualities, after a few uses, I've yet to notice any. However, the shampoo is gentle enough not to overly dry or damage the hair to exacerbate any frizzing. Davines' LOVE also has an unusual, though not (to me) unpleasant, scent—perhaps the olive extract—that reminds me of rich leaves and lush soil.

Heavenly!

Not only is the smell amazing and light, the lather is amazing and perfect for my hair which I am constantly bleaching. My hair has never felt softer and I have used so many different brands. So glad I found this!
