“Kevin.Murphy’s Damage Manager,” says our bookeeper, Chelsea.
“I’m not a stylist- sometime’s I’m accidentally rough on my hair. I don’t mean to be, and Lincoln (my stylist) had to trim split ends regularly because I’d brush roughly, or hold the hairdryer too close to my hair, for too long. I’ve been using Damage Manager for a year, and you can definitely see the improvement in my hair. I have fewer frizzies, my hair is less poofy after blow drying and I definitely have less breakage.”
Damage Manager can be used with any product- when you’re finished washing & adding products, just spray all of your hair (spraying from approximately one foot away from hair). Then heat style as needed.
Looking to refresh your hair, but not washing it? No problem- just spray Damage Manager on your hair and dry briefly before flat ironing or curling.
Split ends happen. No one likes to bring them up, but we’ve all had them- be it from enjoying a summer pool, or overzealous brushing, they pop up.
Fight them with the Davines Melu line. Spinach extract remineralizes, strengthens & conditions, anionic resins provide thermal protection, Keratin fills existing split ends & apricot butter hydrates & smooths.
Want another bonus? Quatenium-08, found in each product, is an anti-static miracle that can speed up total drying time.
To use, gently massage the shampoo in to damp hair and rinse. Repeat if needed. Follow with Melu conditioner, applying a small amount starting at your ears and working downwards. Leave on a few minutes and rinse. Pat your hair dry with a towel, apply a few pumps of serum on to your hair ends, then spritz your hair with the thermal shield. The serum & shield can also be used on dry hair, for daily styling between washes.
For people with harsh, frizzy or curly hair, finding the right shampoo & conditioner can be a battle. Enter your new ally- Davines Love.
Love Curl Enhancing contains Myrtle extract to moisturize and reinforce the scalp, olive amphoacetate to gently cleanse & olive oil peg-7 ester as an emollient agent. The conditioner features pistachio oil as an anti-oxidant, and rice wax to nourish & help prevent dehydration. Smooth your hair’s natural curl, for volume and softness.
Love Smoothing is formulated for harsh, frizzy hair. The shampoo features Indian gig extract for moisture, and rice proteins to protect your hair; while the conditioner compacts rough cuticles and protects hair with Borage seed oil.
Both lines are exceptionally easy to use in your daily regimen- for shampooing, gently massage into damp hair & rinse. Repeat if needed. To condition, apply a small amount to your damp, clean hair, starting at approximately your ear lengths. Leave in for a few minutes, comb through, and then rinse. Style as you like.
