5 Davines Ingredients That Will Make a Difference for Your Hair

The best hair starts in the shower with a good shampoo and conditioner. The products you use have a lot to do with your hair’s texture, shine, manageability, and overall health. We love Davines’ focus on powerful, plant-derived ingredients, and wanted to highlight five key ingredients in some of their most popular products. Here are 5 Davines’ ingredients that will make a difference for your hair:

Caper Blossoms

The extract of these ethereal looking blossoms are an excellent beautifying ingredient. Capers have been growing around the Mediterranean basin from time immemorial, with references to its use as a food and medicine found in the Bible as well as the works of Hippocrates.

Rich in quercetin, a powerful amino acid with a protective effect on hair structure along with hair colour-protecting polyphenols, Salina Capers are one of the key ingredients in Davines Minu shampoo. Its formula, characterized by a rich and full-bodied foam, is ideal for gently cleansing and adding shine to coloured hair.

Lentil Seed Extract

Known as a source of protein and fibre, lentils are also an excellent ingredient for hair growth and strength. Davines Melu line for long hair uses lentil seed extract to give strands the extra strength and elasticity it needs. Strength and suppleness make long hair more resilient when pulled or snagged, thus reducing breakage.

Lentils are also rich in serine and glutamic acid; two strongly reparative and nourishing amino acids which protect and rebuild fragile hair. If your locks are long or damaged, you can improve elasticity or strengthen brittle hair with their Melu shampoo and conditioner.

Minuta Olive Oil

There’s a reason olive oil has been a coveted beauty product for 1000s of years. Harvested from the farm of Mr. Caremlo Messina in Ficarra, Italy, Minuta Olive extract is abundant in fatty
acids and Vitamin E, which are extremely nourishing, softening and moisturizing. Unlike other oils from Sicily, the Minuta olive oil is delicate with floral aromas.

Davines Love line uses this highly nutritious oil with a high concentration of polyphenols and vitamin E to help tame frizz and deeply moisturize hair. If soft, touchable and defined curls are one of your hair goals, then give Davines Love Curl a try.

acai oil

Acai Oil

Acai oil is sourced from the tropical Acai tree, and has some of the highest potency of restorative and protective antioxidants of any fruit. Acai contains omegas 3, 6, and 9, vitamin A, vitamin B1, vitamin E, and other nutrients that make it deeply nourishing to hair.

Davines uses this ingredient in some of its most popular conditioners: Nourishing Vegetarian Miracle Conditioner. Like it’s name implies, this conditioner works miracles on damaged hair. Deeply moisturizing and healing, Vegetarian Miracle is an intensive conditioner that replenishes the hydration levels of brittle hair leaving it stronger and more resilient.


Rich in anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial polyphenols and sugars, dandelion helps to cleanse and balance without causing irritation. The antimicrobial properties of dandelion phytoceuticals make it effective in treating dandruff. Davines Purifying Shampoo is a great choice those looking for a gentle, clarifying shampoo that will help balance the ph and of your scalp.

These are just a few of the quality ingredients found in Davines hair care products, which is why we use their brand exclusively.
