Like all things Aveda, it's plant-based. It smells very strongly like the Whole Foods beauty department, which is to say, full of essential oils. It's a bit off-putting for me, but if that's your thing, you'll like this. Its performance is good. I have thick, unruly curls and I apply this after the Aveda Curl Enhancer. Its texture is a thick jelly that is easy to work through the hair. I let it air dry. The gel provides good hold without feeling crunchy. It also lasts well for second day hair. I think if you had fine hair, this might be too heavy, but for dampening down considerable volume and frizz, it works a charm. I've been through about half of this tube so far and I am confident I will finish it. However, I don't think I'll repurchase. The scent is annoying enough that it's prompted me to look for other options, and I have a Kiehls product waiting in the wings to try.

I got a sample of this sent anonymously (which was a little weird, but freebies, so OK). To date I have only tried the revitalizer. It's ... fine, I guess?It is easy enough to apply. I found the scent fine -- and it disappears once it dries. I can't say that I have noticed any real benefit from it though. For all I know, this is just water with some random essential oils in it. In fairness, I did not use it with the rest of the system, nor am I sure I need a scalp revitalizer (is my scalp fatigued? Aging? What issue is this meant to address? The package doesn't say and no materials came with the sample.) But I suspect none of that would have made much difference in the effectiveness of this product. Might be worth a shot if you have $$ burning a hole in your pocket and feel like your scalp needs to be addressed in some way, but I honestly don't who this would be recommended for.

“Disappointment” is an understatement. Because I was unsatisfied with the product (I’ll get to that later), I went to the store to get a refund. However, I was told that Aveda does not do refunds (?!?). I was never informed of that – had I been, never would I have purchased a $85 cream. I was instructed to call the head office for them to redirect me to their Canadian office, who then transferred me to a store in Toronto. The manager at the store laughed when I told her that I was directed to her store while being in Montreal, Quebec.
Seeing as customer service was dissatisfying, I ended up using the product instead of letting it go to waste. While it claims to moisturize, it dried me out. I have combination skin that can be qualified as oily. I was extremely surprised to wake up to skin that felt tight. To top it all off, it gave me a few annoying blemishes.
I used the product with the recommended serum and it still did not deliver.

I was pretty disappointed with this shampoo. It smells wonderful, but I have pretty dry wavy hair, and this just dried out the ends and irritated my scalp. The Shampure worked much better! The bottle is pretty nice and high quality though.

Was convinced to purchase this after my stylist used it on me at the salon. It was not the only product he used, however, and I’m thinking perhaps the other sprays he spritzed me with downplayed what ended up being disappointing effects. This does not give me tousled texture. Instead, it just makes my hair look wet and sticky, as if I had poured hairspray into my hands and then used it to stick various strands together. Even a very light misting gives me a slick, greasy look that I don’t see anyone going for.The smell is nice. I’ll give it that. It has kind of a patchouli scent, which may not be everyone’s thing, but I like it. One more negative is definitely the price. Incredibly high for such a small bottle. Will not repurchase!
