As much as I love the beachy waves look, I just can’t do it in the dead of winter. Getting my hair adequately wavy requires air drying, and in the colder months, that means frozen locks and an inevitable head cold. While some New York City women are celebrating today’s soaring temps (it’s 70 degrees here!) by busting out spring dresses and bare legs, I am reveling in the warmer weather with my fave post-surf hair style.
To get the look, I am trying a new combo of Davines products that I picked up earlier this week at their New York headquarters: the Love Smoothing Shampoo, the Love Smoothing Conditioner, and the Sea Salt Primer N° 14.
I have very high standards when it comes to hair care because my head is basically a mop of super thick and dry strands. Happily, the shampoo lathered like a dream and the conditioner was incredibly creamy and hydrating. As you’d expect from products named “Love,” the scent was also amazing (this is what hair should smell like!). The best part of all: Davines is exceptionally particular about ingredients. Their formulas are all-natural and some are even Ecocert organic certified, which is no easy feat.
Of course, even the best frizz-fighting shampoo and conditioner won’t be enough to give you that just-out-of-the-ocean hair. For years, I have been a devout Bumble and bumble Surf Spray fan, but Davines’ Sea Salt Primer N° 14 is officially my new love. Much like other high-performance salt sprays, it helps you easily get well-defined waves, but the major difference is the scent: it’s divine. I’ve never encounter another salt spray that works this well and smells so good. And I must say, I like looking as if I’ve been to the beach, but still smelling like I’ve just come from a salon.
