" My Style Lounge: davines

Saturday, November 22, 2008


I'm a hair product junkie. Aside from shampoo and conditioner, I use a minimum of three products at a time. First, I use a hair thickener to get that dirty hair grit without actually having dirty hair (it's a must to wash my hair daily). Then, I use some kind of pomade. I switch between 3-4 different kinds depending on my mood. Finally, I use hairspray.

During one visit to the hairdresser, I was introduced to Davines. To get that high hair I was carrying through the summer, he told me I needed Davines Matt Pliable Putty No. 5. Yeah, that stuff works well but the Bumble & bumble I already had was pretty good, too. He also used Davines Crystal Fixative Lacquer No. 7 but he didn't try to sell it to me. I just bought it. I instantly fell in love with the hold that I got from the hair spray. Now, that product is a winner!

And today... I got a haircut. I have to say, it looks mighty fine. I'm very happy with the results. Prior to getting the cut, I asked the stylist to use one of the Davines shampoos. He used Davines Love. When I asked him why, he said, "It smells good." Huh... that through me for a loop. I wanted him to say that it would manage my Asian hair, it wouldn't weigh it down, it lathers well... or something to that nature. When it was time for conditioner, he switched to Kersastase. I was slightly bummed but he said that the Davines conditioner was too heavy.

So... now, I'm at a loss. I really want to try the Davines shampoos and conditioners. I just don't know which one. For you "I just use drugstore shampoos and conditioners," I'm sorry to bore you. For you fellow product junkies who have used Davines, I would love your input.

I found a site called Blush Beauty that sells the line dirt cheap. DIRT CHEAP I tell you. Osgood O'neil sells the hairspray for $31. I can get it from Blush for $21. Plus, if you use the coupon code BLUSH, you get a mediocre discount on top of their already cheap prices. I need to replenish the hair spray; might as well try out the shampoos and conditioners. PLEASE HELP.
