It’s a Sher thing exclusive Q&A
Q: Are there any new product launches from Davines that we should be made aware of?
A: While not available for purchase in SA, I would love you to read up on our Davines Good Hope Hand Sanitising Gel. The Davines Group has donated over 100,000 units of this ‘little angel in a bottle’ to communities in need worldwide. The 98% naturally derived, biodegradable formula is quick-drying, gently hydrating, and contains 63% Alcohol. All inside sustainable bio-plastic packaging. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Q: What do London summer trends look like right now?
A: We are seeing more natural-looking hair both locally and abroad. Very wavey, natural colours, shorter and easier to maintain bobs, the more experimental are opting for a fun colour toner with Davine’s view in shades such as lilac, as opposed to permanent colour. Younger people are experimenting with washout toners as they want to have fun and they aren’t going into the office every day.
Q: Any advice for someone who has freshly coloured their hair?
A: The most important thing about maintaining good hair health is the products you use on your hair, so use the best products you can. Double wash with shampoo, condition, use a mask/treatment weekly, come to the salon for regular trims and toner and use as little heat on your hair as possible
David’s Davines Love of the week:
Nourishing shampoo and conditioner
Shampoo for dehydrated scalp and dry, brittle hair. This nourishing shampoo cleanses gently with a nourishing action, without changing the hair structure. I use this shampoo and conditioner every second week and I always notice that my hair feels healthy, shiny, and moisturised after I’ve used it.
Shampoo R345 for 250ml
Replenishing conditioner for dry, brittle hair. This balm is suitable for unstructured and fragile hair. It deeply moisturises the hair, making it soft, bright, easy to comb, and reinforcing the structure. I absolutely love it!
Conditioner R435 for 250ml
