When I was recommended one of the new Davines “Renaissance Circle” hair masks during a visit to my favorite Cleveland salon, I was intrigued. I wasn’t sure how I felt when I read the label saying it was for “hopeless hair.” I am the kind of person who gets bored with their hair color every few weeks and I’ve been through just about every color in the rainbow, so yeah, my hair has been through the ringer. Despite the unavoidable damage that comes with processing hair, I pride myself on keeping my hair relatively healthy throughout rounds of bleach and dye. I wouldn’t call my hair “hopeless”, but I had no idea how much better my hair could look and feel until I tried this product.
The package says it is made from Babassu Butter, which the Davines website describes as “an emollient,” (for the layman, that’s basically a fancy word for a moisturizer) and Yellow Clay, which, “reassembles the external structure of the hair.” Now these are two products that I was unfamiliar with, but after trying the mask I swear they must be magic because I could feel a difference in my hair almost right away. After leaving the product in my hair for only a few minutes it felt noticeably softer and, after drying, it was shinier and looked and felt much healthier. Not to mention it smells AMAZING.
And when you use this product you are really getting the most of your $10. Not only is it a magical product, but a little really goes a long way. I have very thick hair that goes about halfway down my back, and I was still able to use the product from this little package a few times. I even had some leftover that I had my boyfriend try. He also has chemically damaged hair as he recently went from his natural black to a light blonde, so I knew he could use a little help too. He loved the hair mask, maybe even more than I did, and it really helped to maintain the integrity of his hair. (Which is good since I don’t think he’s gonna stop bleaching it any time soon.) Instead of feeling like straw, it feels like hair again, which I think we can all agree is a step in the right direction. I could go on about this product, but the bottom line is that Davines “Renaissance Circle” hair mask is actually magic, a lifesaver for damaged hair, and ultimately a steal for only $10.
