Great conditioner but at a price

My hair is actually very thick and course so I don't actually have the kind of hair this conditioner is created for but I never like to say no to a sample and like to try new products so I used half of this tube and then let my husband use the other half as his hair is quite thin. I used all the second tube as I did quite like how it felt on my hair !

The conditioner is not that thick and gloopy and is a creamy sort of colour. It has a lovely fresh slightly citrus sort of scent . The thing I like about more natural conditioners like this is that they sort of melt on your hair as opposed to feeling slippery and slimy in my hair. This is because the natural oils and butter do melt and nourish the hair while cheaper High street brands rely upon silicones to make the hair feel smooth and shiny but these build up in your hair and so you have to use more and more.

Needlss to say you massage this conditioner into your hair and scalp after shampooing then rins it out as you do with any other conditioner.

I used to wash my hair daily and use tons of conditioner and I have gradually reduced my hair washing and apply natural oil like argan to my ends in between washes. I only use natural shampoos and conditioners and my hair is so much better and shinier. My scalp doesn't itch as much and my eczema has gone.

This conditioner left my hair feeling soft and nourished but I can't say it felt any thicker though I really don't need that for my hair. My hair smelled nice and styled easily but I did still use my argan oil on my damp hair before drying and in between this use and my next wash. I did like the fact that it didn't make my hair feel heavy which I found some conditioners have in the past.

My husband also has nice soft and pleasant smelling hair and I really cannot say it was any thicker but I suspect that you need to use it more than once or twice and also Aveda say it should be used with their exfoliating shampoo which I also had and did use and then follow that with their invati scalp revitalizer which I didn't have.

I loved the way this felt on my hair both wet and dry and my scalp didn't itch after using it. My hair did look healthy and had a nice shine so I was happy with the results for me but I m not sure how thickening it would be long term.

I like the ethics of this company. They only use natural plant ingredients and never test on animals.
Aveda claim to be the first beauty company with 100% post consumer recycled PET for skin care and hair styling. They use minimal packing and as much recyclable and post-consumer recycled materials as they can.

They also claim to be the first beauty company manufacturing with 100% certified wind power.

All natural
smells great
leaves hair soft and shiny
ethical company
Weakest points
Didn't notice any thickening
Whopping high price
Summary
This is where I struggle with Aveda as their products are expensive. Even compared to other 100% natural companies they are expensive which is why I rely on samples to try their products.

Summary
I received a sample of this product but it wasn't for a my hair concerns. However I thought I would try the product as I wanted to try the Aveda brand.

The conditioner has a good viscosity which is similar to the types of conditioner I generally use on my long, dry, curly hair. The texture of the product felt nourishing on my hands and I found that it softened and conditioned my hair instantly after application. As with the shampoo, the fragrance of the product is not unpleasant with a faintly minty combined with herbal aroma. I found it hard to put my finger on any one particular fragrance. It was an unusual fragrance, but not unpleasant. The conditioning properties are excellent. I used the entire 10 ml sample as my hair is long and I am generally greedy with my use of conditioner as my hair tends to need it to combat its wayward nature. I noticed that my hair felt instantly softened after the thickening effect of the shampoo.

After conditioning and drying I noticed later in the day that my hair had renewed bounce in the curls and that they were more defined than usual although I had changed none of the other products I applied from my usual routine other than swapping Invati shampoo and conditioner for my usual brand. The next morning my hair still has the bounce and body in the curls and increased softness. This may be an expensive product and not for my hair concern, but I feel it has improved my hair results and I would be tempted to use it regularly.

An excellent thickening conditioner

I received 2 small tube samples of Aveda Invati shampoo & conditioner which are recommended for fragile/thin hair. I have very thick hair so Invati isn't really suited to my hair type, but I thought I'd give the samples a go. Both the shampoo & conditioner have a thickening effect - after using, I struggled to get a brush through my hair. Highly recommended for thinner hair types!

Strongest points
The conditioner has a pleasant scent that's slightly less medicinal than the shampoo's. Has a caramel colour with a silky consistency. Easy to massage through the hair, and rinses out easily.
Weakest points
Expensive. Not moisturizing enough.

Incredible shine!

I received a free sample of this product and decided to try it the day after I had tried the shampoo. Again, the results were spectacular and you only need a little. It coated my hair and really felt like a quality product. I am still not sure about the aroma of these Aveda products. It's not unpleasant but I would say it could be improved.
My hair dried naturally leaving it soft, manageable and looking fantastic.

If I could only afford one Aveda product from the range it would be this one!!!

Creamy conditioner that packs a punch.

Does it really smell of ginger beer, or is it just my weird sense of smell?
The price.
