Keep Color Bright Between Salon Appointments

Because of the holidays, I had put off my trip to the salon, styling my hair, trying to disguise the tell-tale signs of the I-missed-my-last-coloring-appointment. I knew that I was going to need to find a color-enhancer/intensifier shampoo and conditioner that could carry me through the first couple of days of the year. When I heard that Davines had a product line in my area, I jumped at the chance to try both shampoo and conditioner on my reddish-brown hair.

The results? Let's just say that I'm glad that I usually don't rely on first impressions. If so, I would have dismissed this product line right away.

My first impressions, of the negative variety included:
Heavy glass containers? Ugh! Not in my shower.
Reddish-pink colors? How does that make my hair more reddish-brown?
Staining? The total down-side of colored shampoos and conditioners.
Rose-scented? I am SO not a rose-scented woman.

Beyond the first impressions, this is what happened:
I used it for four days, every day.
I became affectionate towards the scent. It grew on me.
My hair looked shinier.
My color took on a new life.
Most importantly, when returning to work after the holiday break, I had co-workers making comments right away about my hair.

Feedback I got:
Your hair is so shiny!
Did you add highlights?
How did you manage to avoid the winter frizzies?
Who's your hair stylist?

Although Davines Alchemic System product line isn't one I intend to use on a day to day basis, I now know what I should be reaching for when I find myself in the same bind again.

Davines Alchemic System also comes in the following colors: Tobacco, Chocolate, Golden, Copper, and Silver.

    Claudia, You can find this in hair salon's that carry the Davine's line. If you do a search through any search engine (like google), there are a couple of boutique spas who offer it for sale via an online purchase. Regards, Kristina

    Maria, It's best - in my opinion - if you use them both together. Regards, Kristina

    I can't wait to try to product.. I would like to know if you recommend using the shampoo together with the conditioner? or does the conditioner along do the trick? I would love to hear from anyone who has tried this product.. It's very hard to find place where they carry it or customer feedback. Thanks

    This is a great tip, I went red almost a year ago and I am still searching for a product that can really help between colorings, red fades so fast and this product sounds like it might do the trick. Thanks!

    I need this now! I am between hair colorings and am just starting to show a bit of fading. This definitely seems like something I could get into. I'm not fond of glass jars either, although I'd keep this on the bathroom counter and use it in the sink (yeah, I'd stain our fabric shower curtain with this stuff!). Thanks for the scoop!
