I donīt really understand how this can be called an exfoliating shampoo, when it has trouble getting my hair even clean. It doesnīt lather much, but this is how many natural shampoos behave and I could get used to it if the product would do its job properly. I had to shampoo sometimes 3times to get clean hair, or of course wash my hair every evening so it doesnīt get much dirty in the first place. I donīt see the point, especially not if the shampoo is so expensive.
I received a sample of this product along with the conditioner and LOVED it INITIALLY. I have naturally curly, color treated hair with a scalp that gets pretty oily/unbalanced at times. With the sample, my hair was soft, scalp felt super clean and I had big, soft, sausage curls. I had high hopes!
Now, I really love Aveda's Rosemary Mint line, but I can only use it just before I'm ready to color. Thinking the Invati line would be the safe for color treated alternative, I splurged and bought the shampoo and conditioner.
So far, I'm NOT loving the results. The smell - I can get used to it. It's the dryness, and the feel that my hair just doesn't seem to want to flow, or lay right. Like, it's parched, but it feels like somethings on it to make it straight, and make it feel stiff. Think Gene Simmons' hair.
As far as hair loss, I am no better off now than I was before using this product. Still plenty of shedding. It's still early, so I may need to give it a chance. For now, this line has too many concerns against it for me to really recommend it to anyone.
I am not sure about the bad reviews but i think was the best shampoo i have ever used.I wasn't keen about the smell but it did made my hair look and feel much better and i was dreading to finish it!Now i repurchased and the same with conditioner!After i used it for 2 weeks or so everyone would compliment my hair.I haven't repurchased the spray tho..don't think it did do anything,but this shampoo and conditioner is my HG
I am only on day 4 using this system. I am using all three, the shampoo, conditioner, and the spray. I noticed right away how wonderfully clean and shiny and soft my hair after felt after just one use! That just seems to get better and better each time I use it. True the smell isn't that great, but I'm paying for a finished product here and that's healthy beautiful hair, not smell. I figure if my fall-out doesn't improve I simply won't buy again. No harm, but my hair has NEVER felt so clean and soft before and if it grows too, then added bonus!!!!
I guess I'm in the minority here - I love this stuff! I got a sample several months back, and just got around to using it (you know the drill, you finally get around to cleaning out under the bathroom sink and find all sorts of things!) I tried it "straight up" - both the 'poo and 'dish - and WOW. I almost didn't need styling product. My hair was so full (I have fine hair but lots of it). It was pretty soft and I love the scent. The next time I washed (I've become an every-other-day girl) I used two pumps of my DermOrganic (my HG) 'poo and about a teaspoon of Invati 'poo. Same with the conditioner. GREAT combination for me. I get the body and control of the Invati and the moisture and overall goodness from the DermOrganic. It is quite expensive (even for Aveda, and I've used a lot over the years!) but combing it with other products will make it last.
I used the shampoo and conditioner for about a month. I have straight, color treated hair just a bit longer than chin length, cut in a modern bob. It is heavy the kind that does not hold a curl well but has been thinning over the last few months, at least it seems that way to me. I saw the ad for this, got some samples of the shampoo and conditioner but not the serum for the scalp. Maybe because I didn't use the "3-step system", but I felt it hasn't done much at all. I don't mind the smell and he does seem to limit some of the hair loss but it has not thickened my hair noticably. I even felt it left my hair a bit greasy which has not been a problem for me since my teen years. I would not spend the money to buy these at full price.
I didn't find it thickened my hair yet but....
it cleared up my psoriasis/seborrhea dermatitis in two uses..
A miracle for me as i have been battling this problem for years and have tried everything from plain olive oil to head and shoulders and Nizoral, TeaTree oil everything... Korres scalp exfoliator, coconut oil, apple cider vinegar to coal tar and everything in between..I love it . It is expensive but i would buy it forever if it keeps the flakes, scales and itch away.
This product contains turmeric. A known hair remover and hair inhibitor. Why the would put it in a shampoo aimed at reducing hais loss is beyond me.
Finished the bottle and won't buy again because didn't help with my hair loss at all. It cleans my hair very well, almost like a clarifying shampoo but also leaves my hair very dry and tangled. It's a must to use a very good conditioner after.
I bought this to try revive my hair after it tooka bashing from kerastase bain de force shampoo. Thisis even worse!. The smell is disgusting i was walking round smelling like a health food shop it's very unattractive. The price is ridiculous and the packaging is dull brown not nice to display in the bathroom. However worst of all is the actual products!. I bought the whole lot and th shampoo actually appeared to have been used when I received it!. Very bad Aveda. After using this my hair was heavy, dull, felt full of product, looked greasy and disgusting. The smell was so disgusting I actually went out for a walk and when it was hit by the rain the smell became even stronger!. How anyone could use this i do not know unless you want to go out looking and smelling like a total troll. It's shameful they are selling this at such a high price. I sent them back and have not even received a refund for over Ģ80 worth of products I could only use twice!. It took three wahes one after another to get the products and smell washed out of my hair. Really bad do not waste your money. I was brain washed by all the lovely Invati advertisements really fell for that one.
