My hair is long, fairly thick, wavy and bleached. My scalp gets oily pretty fast so I tend to shy away from oils or too many styling products. I’ve tried a couple serums in the past and found them a bit too heavy so this light oil suited my hair better. I didn’t go too heavy with it and kept it to my ends where my hair gets a little frizzy. It has a stronger smell, that I can’t quite define, paired with a soft powdery smell.
I tried it both as a pre-styling oil and ran it through my hair before blowdrying as well as a finishing product on my wavy hair. I’ve been going lighter and lighter with my hair and found it harder and harder to get those smooth locks – this really did help smooth out my hair when I blow dried it with a round brush. My hair wasn’t completely back to it’s healthy, pre-bleached state, but it definitely helped.
When I used it as a finishing product, I went really light with it and just worked some into my air-dried wavy hair. I found it helped get rid of some of my frizzy ends and helped define my waves a little better.
Although oils and serums aren’t usually a staple in my hair product regime, I really was surprised at how light this one is and have begun incorporating it. And my little bottle will last me a long time – good purchase!
This oil really is a beautifying potion! I absolutely love it. The only thing about it that may scare some is that it says OIL! This isn’t your typical Moroccan oil or Argon oil, as I do find some of the leave in oils I’ve used in the past tend to be a little heavy or produce extra unwanted oils in my hair.
The Davines OI/Oil is a wonder hair drug. I’ve incorporated it into my hair regime… Shampoo and condition then use the OI as a leave in treatment. The results are as follows…
- leaves a shine in my hair without creating oily roots. I can use this product and go for days without worrying if its going to make my hair greasy.
- I’m big on smell of a product and found that this oil is a soothing smell, and apparently you can use it to moisturize your skin (hands and face) if you wanted to.
- I found that it kept my hair colour looking vibrant and less dull. After about 4 weeks my hair usually starts to look dull and dry. Since using this OI Oil, my hair continues its shine up until my next hair apt.
- Since using the Davines Oil with the Davines Melu shampoo & conditioner, I have found my hair to be a lot shinier, healthier and fight the premature natural production of oils on my scalp. I can go a week without shampooing my hair or looking like I need to. My hair actually looks and feels great longer than it ever has, and that is why I truly enjoy this line.
I do believe in this miracle oil potion and will continue to use it in my hair regime until some other miraculous line comes about.
