I remember a few years ago when I was blowdrying my hair and freaking┬áout when I noticed I could see my scalp through my hair at the top of my head. I wasn’t sure how it got so bad so quickly.­čśč┬áI mean, I had noticed my hair shedding but never imagined this!

I didn’t want to wait any longer so I went to my hairdresser to get a diagnose. He used a special camera-like gadget to zoom into my

scalp to see what was causing my hair loss and it turned out to be a shampoo I had been trying which left lots of residue on the follicles, causing these to block and weaken the roots. ┬áHe told me I had to do something fast before it was too late as I could end up with permanent bald patches. ┬áI thought this was all too dramatic but couldn’t risk it getting worse, that was for sure.

From then on, I discovered the wonderful world of Davines. ┬áI was a little sceptical as it was a little pricey and hadn’t heard about them before but, once I saw results after a couple of weeks I knew I was hooked. ┬áI was using the shampoo to clean and revitalise the scalp and massage the Energising Superactive lotion into my scalp. I was told to do this every other night (whether you’d washed your hair or not) for the first month and then twice a week for the following three months. After two weeks, the results were obvious. ┬áI┬┤d noticed the hair that had fallen during washing and combing was close to nothing and after a few months later my hair looked, felt stronger and thicker at the roots. ┬áI continued the treatment for about a year and half, gave my scalp a break for about three months in between each treatment and after that my hairdresser recommended using the Energising Gel instead which I still use now.gel-energizante-150-ml

As I have long hair, ┬áit took a couple of years to fully appreciate the results down to my ends as I had to let it grow but I’m so glad I found this wonderful product. ┬áIt not only prevented my condition from getting worse but it also fortified and thickened my fine hair.

Davines claims their Energising Superactive combats hormone-related hair loss, alopecia and sebum hyper-production. I guess if you’re really worried about your condition and think it might be due to a health issue, my best bet would be to seek advice from your doctor or dermatologist.

Happy hair day­čĺő

If like me, your hair looks fine and limp when straightened and you’ve tried several thickening products to add the extra oomph it needs, well you’ve been warned what not to try. ┬áKerastase┬┤s thickening effect gel treatment from their Volumifique line is anything but effective. The fact that it was a gel appealed to me as I didn’t want anything too creamy to weigh my locks down. I did exactly what it said on the bottle and left it on for an extra couple of minutes while dreaming of the voluptuous locks I┬┤d end up with…

Unfortunately, I felt it was all a con. It is sold as a conditioner and already while rinsening it off it felt quite tough and just the same as I when I rinse off my shampoo. After blowdrying with my regular heat protective balm (Kerastase┬┤s ┬áCiment Thermique, which is fab BTW) my hair looked just the same as when I hadn’t done the treatment. ┬áIn fact, it also seemed to leave more fly-away hairs and my ends were more prone to frizz. So as for volume that’s as far as it went.

Don’t get me wrong, I love Kerastase and have tried many of their products. ┬áSome I still use and others I still go back to, but this one I’m afraid is a big no no.
