I went to John Lewis the other day and stopped at the Aveda counter cause I wanted to try some of their hair care products. My hair was a mess. I actually felt a bit embarrassed but Anna, the Aveda beautician, made me feel so comfortable. I sat on the chair and was asked a few question about my hair. Anna also did a test on my scalp to see how the skin and roots of the hair were doing. She gave me a lovely head massage (<3 <3) and it was all really, really nice. Best part, apart from some of the products I got of course, was the tea I drank!
What did I get?
I have always wanted to try Aveda and since I am in the UK now and can actually get my hands on some products, I got a few suggestions and bought one full size product and a few travel size ones to try out.
If you want to try several things from a brand, why not get travel size versions before you invest?
Full Size Smooth infusion 150 ml/5 fl oz
This is a liquid cream product you leave in your hair after you wash it. It is supposed to make it less frizzier and more smooth. It has some sort of straightening ingredient, so you may not even have to use a straighter after you dry your hair whilst using this product. Now, to be honest, I like this product, it does make my hair softer and I do think it is more straight when I blow dry it. But I still use a straightener. It does not make my hair greasy or oily. A little product goes a long way.
Would you repurchase? Maybe. I am not sure it is worth the 25 pounds.
Travel size products
Damage Remedy restructuring shampoo
It’s a shampoo that is meant to treat damaged hair aka my hair (I dye it and use loads of straighteners/ irons).I am glad I bought the travel size. Unfortunately, I do not like this one. Didn’t do anything. It actually made my hair tangly and feeling really rough, in definite need of a conditioner!
Would I buy the full size? Nope!
Damage Remedy Restructuring conditioner
It’s a conditioner. It leaves the hair nice and soft like all conditions do.
Would I buy the full size? Probably not.
Damage Remedy Daily hair Repair
This is like a hair mask. It does make my hair softer and I do like it.
Would I repurchase.? Sure.
Damage Remedy Intensive Restructuring Treatment
This is a more heavy duty mask. I haven’t used it yet. Nothing to say here ladies. Sorry.
I must say though that I tend to use the conditioner and the daily repair together and my hair feels super soft. Along with the smooth infusion, I am quite happy. I do not have to spend hours trying to get my hair all straight and non frizzy.
Beautifying Composition Oil
I was given this for free. It is an oil you can use on your head/ body. It smells like peppermint tea. I am really liking this one. Wold I buy the full size? Yes!
On the whole this was a great experience. I really enjoyed talking to the Aveda girls in the John Lewis store in Sheffield, so do stop by if yo are in Shef 🙂
