The Summer heat can be hard on your hair; and even more so for those who are actually out in the sun day to day. We love ALL our brands – but we’ve taken some time to select our favorites for Summer hair care. Firstly – it’s important to protect your hair.

Protect: Hands down our fave is Kerastase Huile Céleste spray – because it’s a double agent. While it’s a shine spray – it also protects your hair from damaging UVA and UVB rays and the effects of chlorine and salt. Don’t forget – any time you leave a pool or get out of the ocean – it’s smart to rinse your hair with water.

Correct: If your hair is damaged and dry from too much sun – try the Kerastase shampoo and conditional for sun-exposed hair. Bain Apres-Soleil and Lait Richesse – are a great combination to give your hair what it needs to heal.

Beach waves: A good “salt spray” do the trick nicely. We love Kerastase Spray A Porter and Davines “This is a Sea Salt Spray”. Mist your hair lightly and let it air dry. Do you have straight hair? To create soft waves that look really natural – twist sections of hair all around the head, secure each section with a hair band, squeeze out excess water and allow it to dry.

Davines-SustainableBeauty-logoIf you’ve been into Clive and Co. recently, you’ve noticed a new brand on our shelves – Davines. We love this brand, because of the natural, high-quality ingredients in their products – as well as their expertise and exclusivity – and it’s why we chose to carry the name and use these products in our Dallas salon.

A bit about Davines

Davines was founded in Parma, Italy in 1983 by the Bollati family. Originally, they produced high-end hair products for cosmetic companies only. In 1996, they began making an exclusive line for salons as well as skin care products for premier spas worldwide.  The products are simple, but based on over 20 years of experience and knowledge, passed down and refined to a natural perfection.

Davines is concerned with ‘Sustainable Beauty’ – meaning,  producing a product that deals with the responsibility we all have in this world, with a commitment to minimize production impact on the enviroment without compromising quality.

We have been looking for the right line to off set Kerastase for a few years now. Davines fits the bill. Davines is everything Kerastase is not, as well as compliments each other in philosophy and price point. Davines packaging is simple, the price point is reasonable, and the performance is great!
