DAVINES Mellow Anti-Breakage Lustrous – Shampoo and Conditioner is just wonderful! Follow the link to get the details on how this line worked for my thick, color treated hair and you can also check out our review on Davines’ MELU Shield (thermal protectant spray)
I use about two quarter size amounts of the shampoo. I found it lathers best after you put it in your hair and let a bit of the shower water mix in. This shampoo creates just the right amount of suds to cover and clean the full surface of your scalp . I have thick hair so I tend to use more of the product than the product suggests. Portion control will be up to your discretion, try a small amount first and then judge from there the amount that works best for you.
The conditioner came in a little round tub, I would prefer if it came in a squeeze bottle or pump as it’s hard for me to judge the amount to use when I have to scoop out the product with my hands – I’m definitely an over scooper. I used about a toonie size portion of the conditioner, again use your discretion, start with a small amount and work it into your hair , this way you can always add more.
I’m convinced that as soon as the Melu conditioner was combined with the freshly Melu shampooed hair, a match made in heaven had been created! The smell I found to be very subtle and light, I can’t quite pin point it’s similarity but it’s a soothing fresh smell. Quite enjoyable. After rinsing out the Melu shampoo & conditioner it left my wet hair almost finger comb-able. I can’t even remember the last time I was able to do that! I found that my hair felt soft, light (bouncy) and clean longer than usual, I was able to go 4 days instead of 2 before my next shampoo. Normally after 2 days my roots start to feel oily, after using the MELU s&c it was 4 days before my roots felt oily. I possibly could have even stretched it to 5 or 6 days max.
My hair looks vibrant and the colour doesn’t seem to fade while using this – not that it’s a shampoo that boasts it holds colour but all around my hair just looks and feels healthy-strong and all around Fantastic! I love this product and would recommend it to anyone!
Since the trial run I have incorporated MELU into my weekly hair regime..
