Davines says this shampoo is particularly perfect for giving hair extraordinary softness, shine, and body, and I have to admit, I agree with that. My hair is straight so I’ve never had issues with manageability, and thus can’t comment on that side of things, but I can say that my hair feels super soft and has a ton of extra body when I shampoo with this.
When you first open the bottle you’ll notice the scent, which is medicinal in a eucalyptus sort of way, and I really enjoy it. It’s definitely natural smelling, and reminds me of old-fashioned barber shops.
When I use this product I find you really, really only need a little bit of it. I also like to use this product because the effect is decidedly more “spa treatment” when you take the time to fully indulge. Really massage it into the scalp, inhale deeply, pause, and then rinse. Soak it in.
Loaded with roucou oil, which helps prevent hair aging and is a strong antioxidant, the Davines Oi Shampoo is billed as an absolute beautifying shampoo for all kinds of hair.
