The Shampoo & Conditioner Duo That Will Save Your Winter Mane
Winter wreaks havoc on all that comes into her path, including our hair. Dry skin? Check. Dry complexion? Check. Dry cuticles? Feet? Tresses? Check, check, check. Literally, we are dehydrated from head to toe. And each area of our body needs a specific combination of lotions and potions to bring our dull, depleted selves back to a healthy, glowing state.
Enter Davines OI Shampoo ($28) and OI Conditioner ($34), the duo that is going to save your winter mane. The shampoo is sulfate-free but suds like old-school Pantene. It cleans without stripping. In fact, I’d say this shampoo is on the oilier side, so for seriously dehydrated scalps, you’ve met your antidote. The scent is like a musky Diptyque candle (delish), and it lingers well after you turn off the shower. The conditioner is more like a mask in its heavy consistency and leaves hair silky, soft, and easy to comb through.
I let my hair air dry, as I usually do, and it didn’t get fluffy or frizzy, nor did it look weighed down like some thick oil-based products tend to do. It was pretty much the perfect combination of clean and hydrated.
Both formulas contain antioxidant-fueled roucou oil to protect and guard hair from harsh UV radiation and heat styling. The sulfate-free OI Shampoo also has sunflower seed oil for shine, while OI Conditioner combine apricot butter to soften, condition, and soothe.
Use together for optimal results, but I’ve been using the conditioner with a clarifying shampoo as my scalp tends to lend itself to the oilier side, and this conditioner has breathed new life into my dull, lifeless winter locks. YESSSSS.
