Having thin hair has been a blessing and curse for me over the years. It’s a blessing because I have hardly any body hair and only have to shave my legs once or twice a week. But it’s a curse because the thin blonde hairs on my head are delicate and break easily. Coloring my hair makes them even weaker. Because of this, I have to spend extra time taking care of it, nourishing it, and strengthening it. I’ve tried all sorts of natural shampoos and conditioners and haven’t really fallen in love with any in the past.
This process has been a bit of a struggle, so when Aveda asked me to partner with them and try out Invati, their three-step thinning hair solution, I jumped right on it. I don’t know about you, but I’m always down to try something that is going to thicken my hair! The products are made with naturally-derived ingredients! After two weeks of using this system, here is my honest review:
Step 1: Exfoliating Shampoo
What they have to say: Cleanses, exfoliates and renews the scalp with wintergreen-derived salicylic acid. Removes build-up of sebum and product residue that can clog pores.
What I have to say: My hair and scalp feel super clean after using this shampoo, plus it smells so good which is always a plus.
Buy it here.
Step 2: Thickening Conditioner
What they have to say: Soy protein and naturally derived amino acids mimic hair’s building blocks to help weightlessly thicken hair from within.
What I have to say: First of all, this conditioner smells amazing. I hate when hair products smell chemically and fake, and this one smells like essential oils and a little bit of heaven. Because I do have oily hair, I never use a lot of conditioner, so as usual, I just used this on my ends. It went on smoothly and felt great. My hair has now looks more voluminous and feels stronger. It’s generally very flat and dull, and I’ve seen a big difference, even when I blow dry it at home.
Buy it here.
Step 3: Scalp Revitalizer
What they have to say: Helps keep the hair you have longer after using the complete Invati system for 12 weeks. Contains densiplex™—an invigorating blend of Ayurvedic herbs, including ginseng and certified organic turmeric.
What I have to say: The bottle states to spray this product on scalp 2x/day, on damp or dry hair, so I thought I’d try both. I was worried that it would make my hair greasy, but it ended up having the opposite effect, almost like a dry shampoo. I think it’s too early to tell exactly how this product and the entire system are going to work, but my scalp instantly feels invigorated after I massage this product in. I want to see fuller, more voluminous hair, so I will keep using the system religiously.
Buy it here.
I really like this line so far and will continue using them since they will help make my hair look great. I think post-baby they’ll be a life-saver too because that’s when a lot of hair tends to fall out. I’m guessing the Scalp Revitalizer will be key in those months.
For all of you with thin/weak hair, I’d love to know your secrets!
