Davines: The Holy Grail Hair Styling Brand

The majority of hair styling products available in salons, drug stores, and grocery stores contain toxic ingredients. Parabens. Polymer plastics. Artificial fragrances. Synthetic fillers. All of these ingredients found in common hair styling products can harm your health–and the environment.

Unfortunately, even seemingly “natural” hair care brands use toxic ingredients. Take a look at the Environmental Working Group (EWG) ratings for a brand like Pureology: Most of the brand’s products are considered a moderate to high hazard for human and environmental health.

“Pure” indeed.

Not to single out Pureology–plenty of brands, like L’Oreal, Tigi, and Redken, to name a few, use toxic ingredients. But Pureology deserves special distinction because of its name. In reality, words like “pure” and “natural” have no legal definition–so a brand like Pureology can promote a sense of “purity” while peddling toxic, harmful products (the brand also tests on animals).

Fortunately, in recent years more consumers have become ingredient savvy about hair styling products–and many now strive to source healthy shampoos, conditioners, serums, and more.

That said, the holy grail of today’s hair styling products is a truly natural product that actually works.

“We don’t need to expose ourselves to toxic ingredients,” say Trisha Stewart, owner of Barberella Salon. “Today you can find safe, natural, cruelty-free hair styling products that are as effective as the toxic products.”

Trisha even believes she’s found the “holy grail” hair styling brand: Davines.

Barberella Salon is a “Davines Concept Salon“–short hand for the promotion of beauty and health, what Davines calls the “good life for all, through beauty, ethics, and sustainability.”

Originally founded by the Bolatti family in 1983, in Parma, Italy, as a “high-end hair care research lab,” Davines has since blossomed into an international brand. Today Davines sources all of its ingredients from local Italian farms, and all Davines products are still made in Parma.

“Though we are an international company,” Davines says, “our roots are planted in our heritage as a family-owned lab, guided by the desire for quality products with timeless appeal.”

The Davines formula is simple: the company combines the best locally-sourced, plant-based ingredients with rigorous testing to create clean, effective, environmentally-friendly high-end hair care products.

This value of this formula is evident in the Davines product line–a longtime favorite of the stylists at Barberella as well as many of Barberella’s customers.

“Our clients clamor for these products,” Trisha says.

A Davines expert, Trisha recommends the Davines “treatments” to remedy hair issues.

“The Oi Oil is outstanding for dry hair,” she says. “And I love the Circle treatments, like Wake-Up or Renaissance for nourishing damaged hair.”

Of course, in addition to the treatments, one could make a Davines regime, choosing from a variety of shampoos, conditioners, and styling products.

So yes, you can enjoy the best of hair styling products without the toxic add-ons. Just ask for Davines at Barberella Salon.
