Thicker, Fuller Hair Is Yours
My hair just piles up, and up, and up, but individually, the hairs are fine, I just have more follicles than I think is physiologically possible. Maybe you can relate? You blow dry it, add product and thicken it up and give it shape, but by midday, it all just snaps back and flops. It needs more lasting volume!
But, whether flat hair, fine hair, thin hair or receding hair, it's Aveda Invati to the rescue?[/one_half][one_half_last]The range has reportedly been one of Aveda's biggest ever launches and revolves purely around the core trio of products – Invati Exfoliating Shampoo, Invati Thickening Conditioner and finally Invati Scalp Revitalizer.
It relies on Densiplex™, a thickening complex of natural plants and herbs including ginseng and turmeric. This Cradle to Cradle Gold Certified range, through clinical trials has been proven to reduce hair loss due to hair breakage in just 12 weeks. It sounds very promising![/one_half_last]
The Exfoliating Shampoo is a weird one indeed and something quite unique to the world of shampoos, I love it. When I first read that it was exfoliating, my heart sank as I once tried the Aveda men pure-formance exfoliating shampoo, which is filled with tiny exfoliating beads that just didn't seem to wash out, I was never really a fan.
This however relies on totally gentle, chemical exfoliation, I did spot Salicylic Acid in the ingredients list among others, so they're really not messing about here. It lathers into a rich foam, but a word of warning, do NOT get this in your eyes, if you do, you'll make sure you only do it once! It leaves your scalp fresh and hair feeling very cleansed, but definitely ready for the conditioner straight away.
The exfoliation is designed to unblock pores and smoothen the scalp, creating a better environment for hair production.[/one_half][one_half_last]The fragrance is stunning, created by 'world-renowned clinical aromaologist Pierre Franchomme and Aveda master organic perfumer Ko-Ichi Shiozawa' and is predominantly made up of all the various natural actives that they fill their products to the brim with.
Let me tempt you with – Safflower, Tumeric, Grape, Lady's Thistle, Millet, Rosemary and Kukui. It has an overall very herby and planty smell (some real professional fragrance language there) and is very reminiscent of the fragrance of the Aveda Men's Pure Performance range.
I should probably also mention that this has just received another award, this time from GQ magazine as the best new shampoo with feedback such as “an intense formulation – with intense results!” and “This has made a real difference to the thickness of my hair.”
– So don't just take my word for it![/one_half_last]
The Thickening Conditioner foams gently as you work it, thickening your hair as you massage and at the same time releasing a burst of the Aveda Invati fragrance. You can really feel it getting to work.[/one_half][one_half_last]Because the whole range is for all hair types, this conditioner hydrates your hair but doesn't leave it greasy and lank, nor does it leave you gagging for more! It's definitely not one of those conditioners that slime in and seem so disappear on contact, it really packs a punch and hair feels amazing as soon as you begin to rinse it through.[/one_half_last]
The Scalp Revitalizer is great. It took my a long time of researching and asking, but no one could give me a definitive answer whether you massaged it into a dry or wet scalp, so I took initiative and pursued logic by [/one_half][one_half_last]massaging around 16 shots into a damp scalp, as the follicles will still be warm and more open, allowing the product to penetrate more effectively. Once you've massaged it in for around 30 seconds to a minute, continue to dry and style your hair as normal, you will find that your hair immediately becomes more volumised and increasingly so after prolonged use.[/one_half_last]
I've only been using the range for a week or so, so haven't seen that much immediately noticeable volume, but what I have seen, which to me is the most important thing, is that through the day my hair is staying fuller and more volumised for longer, not simply collapsing into a flat pancake as aforementioned. As well as the prolonged volume, my hair appears shinier, generally a little healthier and unimaginably soft to the touch. Big thumbs up for Aveda Invati here!
