Davines Nou Nou

I am going to be honest. When it comes to shampoo and conditioner, I have never been the one to buy the hair salon brands. I always thought they were too expensive and I was quite happy using my L'Oreal sulfate free shampoo, in fact, I still like that product. But at the beginning of this year, I used a drugstore brand that I hadn't used before and it ruined my hair. My hair broke all over, was lifeless and dull. And that's when my experience with Davines began.

About Davines: It is an Italian brand, founded in Parma in 1983. I was actually surprised that I hadn't heard of them until I moved to Canada, given that they're European. Davines are into being very eco-friendly. Their packaging is made of as little raw materials as possible, recyclable materials are used and reduce the use of composite materials as much as possible, as they are difficult to recycle. You can read more about Davines sustainability projects here.


Now, onto the products that I have used. My hairdresser recommended that I try Davines Nou Nou shampoo & conditioner since my hair was so dry and damaged. I happily bought the products, as who doesn't want that 'just-walked-out-of-the-salon' look and feel?!

My thoughts:

First of all, I love the smell of these products. It reminds me of parma violet sweets, it made my hair smell so good. I believe the shampoo is sulfate free as when I lathered it in my hair, it didn't get as sudsy as some shampoos but that is ok! I like sulfate free products, as I feel that they weigh my hair down less. I got off to a really good start with this shampoo and conditioner. With the dry Calgary climate in winter and spring, my hair can get a little parched and very static. The conditioner is quite thick and I didn't need to use too much for it to untangle my hair - a little goes a long way.  Both of these products really quenched my hair and made it shiny.

However, recently I felt that these products were starting to weigh down my hair and I couldn't go more than one day without washing it. My hairdresser said that it is probably because it is coming into summer and the climate isn't as dry anymore. I started using a different shampoo and conditioner and my hair is back to its shiny self.

It seems that Davines Nou Nou products are better suited for my hair during the dry winter, which means I have a lot left over that I will keep until winter comes around again!

I did feel that the price was quite high for the amount of product that you get (250ml). But I guess with a good quality product comes a higher price!

Next week I have a review of their purple conditioner on the blog!
