Most people don't need to wash their hair every day but for some daily hair washing is an absolute must. If you have extremly oily hair, certain scalp conditions and/or a personal preference for washing your hair daily be sure to use products that will prevent damage and dry scalp.
Davines Oi Shampoo is considered le creme de la creme for several reasons:
It's formulated with a blend of milky smooth natural active ingredients, including Roucou Oil, which helps to nourish and protect your hair from environmental damage and reduces frizz and flyaways.
Roucou oil also works to supplement diminishing levels of melanin. As we age, the production of melanin decreases, leading to the appearance of grey or white hair. This shampoo uses melanin compounds that deposit color onto the hair shaft, temporarily coloring the grey hair and making it appear darker. This can help to blend the grey hair with the natural hair color, reducing the visibility of grey strands.
It does not reverse the greying process or permanently restore the natural color but melanin acts as a natural sunscreen, protecting the hair from harmful UV radiation. Excessive exposure to the sun's rays can accelerate the greying process.
The formula is concentrated so use less than usual. A little goes a long way! This is a professional product and it is priced accordingly. It lasts a long time, even if you shampoo daily. Drugstore shampoos are typically formulated for the general population, which means they may not address specific hair concerns or cater to your individual needs.
Some Davines products can be quite fragrant so if you want a shampoo with next to no scent, I suggest something like Numea Beauty ReNeu Shampoo. It's free of harsh chemicals as well!
Davines Oi Shampoo is an excellent choice for those with curly or frizzy hair who struggle with managing their hair's texture. Even the thickest hair types can be weighed down by natural oils if you're not cleansing frequently enough.
Unlike other shampoos that can weigh down the hair, the Oi Shampoo has a lightweight formula. It cleanses the hair effectively without leaving any residue or heaviness, making it suitable for all hair types, including fine hair. Yes some will argue that you don't need shampoo at all but the scent of your scalp could be offensive if you're not using natural alternatives to traditional shampoos.
I'm continually suprised by how many male clients, actors, musicans and models tell me this is their absolute fave (unless they're thinning / losing their hair). For people with hair loss I reccomend that they try the Davines NaturalTech Energizing range.
Using natural ingredients can also help minimize the risk of irritation or allergic reactions. Davines Oi Shampoo is free from sulfates, parabens, and artificial colors. Sulfates, such as sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) or sodium laureth sulfate (SLES), are commonly found in many shampoos and can strip the hair of its natural oils, leading to dryness and damage.
Parabens are preservatives that have been associated with potential health risks. By avoiding these harsh chemicals, Davines Oi Shampoo helps maintain the health and integrity of your hair and scalp.
The Oi Shampoo has a delicious, fresh fragrance. The scent is a blend of bergamot, jasmine, and vanilla, which adds to the overall sensory experience of using the product.
There's an entire range of Oi products. You don't need to use every single one.
If you have super oily hair use the Davines Oi Milk ( a leave in conditioner in spray form) rather than the Davines Oi Conditioner and the Davines Oi Oil. You'll still get the softness and detangling benefits.
The Davines Oi Oil is available in two sizes and it's known for adding shine and making your hair feel incredibly soft. I like it because it never makes anyone's hair look dirty and most serums do. I take a very small amount of oil, warm it up between my palms, and apply it to the mid-lengths and ends of the hair. Then I comb through to distribute the oil evenly.
Pro tip: If you need more add it after the fact.
