Although I did not like this shampoo or conditioner at all, I do like the scalp revitalizer. With hair loss, it’s important to know the cause (hormone imbalance? Medication side effect? Nutritional deficiency?), so that can be addressed, otherwise you’re not really going to get that far. However, I do find that keeping my scalp clean (“regular”, properly formulated shampoos without a lot of added stuff/ nonsense in them) and applying certain things topically, can help.Previously I was using rosemary essential oil and real aloe, which is a lot cheaper and was helping me with my shedding issues. However, after receiving and using up a sample of this, I decided to buy a full sized bottle. It says to use it twice a day, but I’ve been using it once a day, at night, about 5 times a week. It does have a strong/ essential oil/ herbal smell, which I happen to love, but maybe test this in the store, because the scent does linger. It has a lighter base (alcohol denat), since those with hair loss/ thinning hair probably don’t want oils/ anything greasy on the scalp. I have zero issues with irritation, and I appreciate it not being oily, since scalp oilings make my hair loss worse. There’s a nozzle on it so you can squirt right on your scalp, but I like to squirt on my finger tips and then apply, because I find I don’t use it up as quickly this way.After using it for about a year (almost done with my first bottle), I can see in photos and in my ponytail, that my hair looks better/ thicker. I do have a back up bottle that I purchased recently. However, I noticed on their website that they reformulated this. It’s a once a day formula now, is more expensive, and some of the reviewers are complaining, so maybe check out a sample of the new formula before committing to it. Overall, I do like the original formula and will continue to use this second bottle that I bought when I’m finished with my first one.

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 which is something 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 :/Selena x~ My HG list ~(I've sampled many 100s of skin, hair and m/u products over the last decade and a half, as I love trying out new stuff all the time - usually sample sizes via e-bay, also plenty courtesy of a friend who works at Sephora.

I just had my hair colored at an Aveda salon three weeks ago. I noticed after washing it that it felt like glue when I applied shampoo. I thought maybe I needed to wash out some of the products the stylist had applied, since she used several products after washing it. It didn't feel great, but I was hopeful that whatever was on it would work its way out. Not so. The next time I washed it, one week later, it felt even more glue-y when wet and was absolutely straw-like after showering. To make matters worse, a TON of hair fell out. I freaked out when I realized that my hair was chemically damaged. Feeling a little better that I'm not the only one who has had these issues, but I will certainly never use Aveda color again. FYI, I've had my hair colored regularly for the last 8 years and NEVER experienced anything like this.

Which product can help my hair retain volume when faced with humidity on a daily basis? This was the question I was asking my hairdresser at the salon recently. She had a few ideas, 'Volumizing Tonic' being one of them. As a fan of a few of Aveda's products I decided to give this a try. She actually demonstrated how to apply then and there. Firstly she sprayed on my hair whilst it was still damp - applying directly to the roots. This was then massaged in and finally followed by brushing though with a brush whilst at the same time using a blow dryer. Instant volume, although I was curious to see if it would pass the humidity test when I stepped outside (it did!). She also advised it must be used on clean hair to avoid interactions with other products that may be coating the hair and weighing it down. Sound advice...because a few days after purchasing I decided to try it on my hair some hours after using a hair spray. The results were just meh. Oh and I love the fragrance in this, just wish it would last a bit longer on my hair. Ingredients seem to be missing as of 7-20-18 so here they are:Ingredients: Aqueous (Water\Aqua\Eau) Extracts\Extraits Aqueux:Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Flower Extract, Echinacea Purpurea (Coneflower) Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice , Vp/Dimethylaminoethylmethacrylate Copolymer , Alcohol Denat. , Panthenol , Wheat Amino Acids , Oryzanol , Tocopherol , PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil , Cetrimonium Chloride , Maltodextrin , Fragrance (Parfum) , Eugenol , Linalool , Hydroxycitronellal , Phenoxyethanol Selena x~ My HG list ~(I've sampled 100s of skin, hair and m/u products over the last decade and a half, as I love trying out new stuff all the time - usually sample sizes via e-bay, also plenty courtesy of a friend who works at Sephora.

I used to dye my hair jet black for years and used to use this to maintain my colour, mainly to prevent that annoying red hue from shining through especially during summer and it worked great at the time. All I did was slather it around my roots and mid-shaft after shampoo and let it sit for a few minutes, then rinse and apply a hydrating conditioner because this stuff can be drying...But I haven't dyed my hair black in about 5 months as I'm trying to gradually lighten my hair in preparation to eventually become blonde. However the brassiness in my hair has become super prominent and it's not something I enjoy so I figured that I would pull this out to tint/tone my hair instead of dying it. My issue now is that I have realized how much residue this product tends to leave on my hair whilst simultaneously drying it out. I guess I didn't realize while I was dying my hair as black hair colour itself tends to dull out and leave my hair not as soft, but now that my hair has been untouched for several months and it's regained its natural shine and smoothness I can reaaaally tell how this conditioner just tends to sit on top of my hair no matter how well I rinse out (I even shampooed once afterwards but all that did was further remove the tint and still I was left with weighed down hair).It definitely did tone my hair and cancel out some redness, but imo it's not worth the sacrifice of hair quality.Not to mention this stuff is expensive. Will not be repurchasing.
