Davines Texturising Serum
Hair serum that lets you achieve a texturizing effect without giving up softness or workability. It’s the perfect choice for creating body, structure and shape while you blow-dry.
Not a hair spray, not a powder, the silky new serum is Davines’ answer to keeping hair full-bodied while you blow-dry, instead of tackling its shape after styling.
