Hair -AVEDA -Salon Hair coloring

on 3/19/2019 2:41:00 PM

I disagree with the person who suggested that all negative Aveda reviews were written by the same reviewer. I am my own person - loved my local Aveda salon and stuck with it for 3 years before finally conceding that the color had destroyed my hair. I stuck with it, I really did! First my scalp would itch like CRAZY and I'd get sores; I thought I was getting acne or something until I read other, similar reviews). Next, my hair started falling out. Not clumps, just a LOT of hair each time I'd wash or brush my hair. I stubbornly blamed it on pre-menopause. Finally, it just became SO dry, like straw.

I eventually had to admit the Aveda color was just bad for my hair. I know it's not the case with everyone but that was my true experience.

Treatments (Eye) -AVEDA -Botanical Kinetics Energizing Eye Creme

foto

This is an excellent eye cream. It's moisturizes well and sits beautifully under makeup. It is also unfragranced, which I appreciate in an eye cream. I don't know about its dark circle reducing or depuffing properties, but it definitely felt cooling and a bit energizing (thanks to the caffeine?). The packaging is also great--a hygienic (and attractive) tube that dispenses just the right amount.

With all of that said, it's a bit pricey at $36 for half a fluid ounce. For the money, I prefer the Cerave eye cream, but I would repurchase this as a special treat. In fairness, the tube did last me a long time.

Conditioner -AVEDA -Rosemary Mint Conditioner

Not many people seem to like this conditioner, I happen to love it! The ingredients: lots of botanicals, no silicones, plenty of good stuff. The texture: completely unlike most other conditioners I've used before. It's like a watered down thin gel! If you're not used to a silicone-free conditioner this will probably take some getting used to. The aroma: refreshing, zingy and uplifting. If I've had a long, hot day I cannot imagine anything more refreshing than massaging this into my scalp under the shower. It gives that 'tingling' sensation, pretty similar to my Briogeo scalp treatment but thankfully a bit less intense! The results: I wouldn't say the conditioning effects are amazing but they are decent enough, despite this being more geared towards fine/normal hair (mine being quite thick), my hair is less frizzier, more manageable but not artificially scented or coated in silicones that make it 'feel' soft temporarily. Yes it takes some getting used to, this is a very unconventional conditioner and definitely won't be to many peoples liking.
Unlike the matching shampoo this has so far not caused me any itching or other problems (now on my 5th use) so once this trial size runs out I will most likely re-purchase and use with a different shampoo.

Shampoo -AVEDA -Rosemary Mint Shampoo

I was (and still am) a big fan of Shampure so I decided to give this a try as my hairdresser had mentioned this one a couple of times. I loved what I could see of the ingredients in the packaging, however after about 3 or 4 uses my scalp began to itch and flake in a way that it hasn't done in a very long time. This was the only thing different in my haircare routine.
Although I'm tempted to say it's the invigorating/stimulating ingredients in here: i.e rosemary extract, peppermint or Camphor, the truth is I regularly use other products which contain these ingredients AND at stronger concentrations so I know that can't be it. My guess is one of the chemicals in here is causing the reaction. Such a shame as I was really looking forward to switching over from Shampure to this based purely on its 'invigorating' plant extracts...
For what it's worth (and the reason why I've not given it 2 lippies) I loved how this is actually a very effective shampoo at cleaning without weighing down or stripping my hair. Each of the few times I used it I found the peppermint/rosemary aroma really invigorating as I inhaled it (I imagine this would work brilliantly at the end of a hot summers day) and my hair itself super-clean and vibrant. If only my scalp had loved it as much!

Conditioner -AVEDA -Smooth Infusion Conditioner

This conditioner is OK and nothing special. The price is exorbitant for a conditioner whose third ingredient is cheap, non-water-soluble dimethicone that will cause build-up over time. The fragrance is light and not offensive, like a light floral. I won't rush to repurchase but would consider buying if on sale to rotate with my other conditioners.
