6 Ideas For a More Sustainable Hair Care Routine
Changing the world may seem overwhelming, but at Davines, we believe everyone can contribute by abandoning old habits and acquiring more sustainable ones. We are striving to do our best for the planet, creating effective formulas with high naturality and biodegradability percentages, and following eco-design principles.

- Opt for a cooler and shorter shower
- Turn the running water on only to rinse
- Try leave-in products
- Let the hair air dry
- Reduce styling time
- Wash your hair less frequently
- Bonus idea! Choose renewable energy suppliers
1. Opt for a cooler and shorter shower
When taking care of your hair, please be conscious of the energy in use! Most of the CO2eq emissions related to haircare products come from water heating. So, try to start with a cooler water temperature: warm, but not boiling hot. And remember that while a shower is hopefully a moment of relaxation for you, one that's too long can cause stress on the planet.
2. Turn the running water on only to rinse
While you massage in the shampoo, conditioner, or hair treatment, remember to close the tap and avoid wasting water. Turn the running water on only to rinse, then shut it off immediately.
3. Try leave-in products
To save running water, a good solution is using products that do not require rinsing. At Davines, we have several: from a leave-in milk that guarantees long-lasting hair softness and conditioning, to treatments that help repair the hair fiber.
4. Let the hair air dry
Use the hairdryer at the lowest possible temperature — or even better, if you live in a region where the climate permits, let your hair air dry. There are many Davines products that you can use to improve styling even without using a hairdryer or other hot tools! Discover some popular ones below.
5. Reduce styling time
While there are many great air-dried hairstyles, sometimes you'll need to turn to heat styling to achieve your look.Our advice is to use products that can help reduce drying time, facilitate styling and/or other offer thermal protection.
6. Wash your hair less frequently
Have you ever tried using a dry shampoo to decrease your washing frequency? We have two great dry shampoo options that can help in situations of need, where the hair is not exactly perfect but can last a while longer.
7. Bonus idea! Choose renewable energy suppliers
One of the main ways to fight climate change is to choose renewable energy sources to heat water, from which very little or no CO2eq is emitted. Nowadays, most suppliers offer sustainable options: re-check your contract and make sure it includes only solar, wind, biomass or hydro energy.
Here at Davines we're proud to set a good example: the Parma production plant is powered only by renewable energy.
