We put our tresses through quite a bit to get that confidence-boosting “I feel like a million bucks” hair style. Between blow-drying, straightening, curling, coloring, and sun exposure, it’s no surprise that those same beautiful locks can cry out in thirst. All that stress from color and heat styling is seriously damaging and it can be exhausting trying to rescue your hair and keep it healthy.
As someone with A LOT of generally dry, coarse hair that gets major color treatment (like jet black to blonde!), I am super familiar with this little dance of trying to love your hair and having it love you back. For me, it boils down to a great shampoo and conditioner (read my Function of Beauty review for details!) combined with a $10 packet of miracle-working hair magic – otherwise known as the Renaissance Circle Repairing Hair Mask by Davines.
With all my blonde highlights, deep conditioning is obviously a must, but this moisturizing powerhouse really blew me away. I use the Renaissance Circle mask once a week and it really keeps my waves smooth, soft, and healthy. But what’s really amazing is that this beauty bargain is only $10!
A few tips for using The Renaissance Circle mask:
+ This is a seriously hydrating product, so only use this on the ends if your roots get oily easily.
+ Do yourself a favor and actually let the product process for the full 10 minutes. None of this “well I’ll just leave it on while I shave” nonsense. Trust me, the result is well worth the wait.
+ The smell isn’t for everyone, in fact it’s not my favorite. But don’t let that deter you, the scent fades pretty quickly.
+ I have super long hair and can still get 2-3 uses out of each packet; lots of bang for your buck!
A quick note on Davines the brand:
The company started as a family-based beauty research lab in Italy in 1983 and they have a purpose statement that I absolutely love…
“TO BE THE BEST FOR THE WORLD, CREATORS OF GOOD LIFE FOR ALL, THROUGH BEAUTY, ETHICS AND SUSTAINABILITY.”
The Renaissance Circle is definitely the most heavy-duty and intensive of all the “Circle Chronicles” offerings by Davines. With all the bleaching and heat styling, my hair totally craves it, but be sure to check out their other great hair masks for different needs, including: the Wake-up Circle for hair and scalp recovery, the Spotlight Circle for shine, the Purity Circle to clarify hair and scalp, and the Quick Fix Circle for a fast, three-minute moisture and shine boost.
I love this product so much that I bought these hair masks for all the ladies in my life as stocking stuffers last Christmas and now they’re obsessed. I suggest buying in multiples because you’re going to love it, too. Cheers to lots more great hair days in your future!
