I was at the Aveda Experience Centre at the Pavilion not too long ago. OK, I have a little longer then shoulder lenght hair, but because of me being a vainpot and liking to colour my hair etc, I have problematic hair. I have oily scalp that flakes from time to time, my hair is very damaged and dry, and I suspect I have thinning hair as well from the stress I undergo .
I have heard of Aveda, and have tried out their Invati range which I must say I love so very much. Of all the hair fall shampoos I encounter (which usually smells so horrible - including the Yun Nam and so on), Invati is my favourite because it really works wonders and the best thing of all it leaves my hair smelling so fabulous, I cannot stop smelling my hair after every wash....

This visit to the Experience Centre was to try out a couple of other new products.
The Volumizing Tonic which is quite remarkable in creating maximum volume for fine and medium hair. With certified organic aloe and wheat amino acids to help build body and add shine. Enhanced with a Pure-Fume aroma containing essential oils to uplift your senses.
"Rough-dry" hair using a blow dryer and your fingers until it is about 80% dry. Lift sections of hair and spray Volumizing Tonic near the scalp area; then use a round brush, blow dryer and hands to further enhance volume.
| Once dry, set with Pure Abundance Hair Spray. The Pure Abundance range helps lift the hair and fills it out by making it look fuller, healthier , volumnized and it also stays more abundant. It contains certified organic acacia gum, calendula and honey to help the hair feel thicker and look fuller.|
It is weightless and has an extra firm hold to make your hair stay the way you want it to be and again, like all Aveda products, it is so great for your olfactory senses
As you can see... it makes a lot of difference for me....
Ok... (below) after using the Volumizing Tonic and Pure Abundance, I certainly can boast that I got a head full of hair, but sadly.. it is very dry and rough looking.
The hair consultant decided to tone it down and give me sleek looking hair. She brought out one of Aveda's new products, Smooth Infusion Naturally Straight to apply on my hair.
It is said to straightens curls with every use
As you blow-dry your hair, the plant-derived fibers help create a locking layer to help hold your hair straight, day after day. One of the main ingredients in it, the organic cassava root helps form a barrier against intense humidity to help you forget about frizz. This makes straight styling so much faster and easier.
*After 5 consecutive applications of naturally straight, hair will stay straight for up to 3 washes.

And check out the difference in my appearance with Smooth Infusion Naturally Straight on the left of this picture and compare it to my naturally frizzy hair.... I was definitely bowled over by the contrast..
Taaa daa... I look like one of those supermodels at this moment...simply fabulous...
The hair consultant decided to finish it off with the Brilliant Emollient Finishing Gloss, a high gloss emollient with rice bran oil that smoothed my hair, conditions it and make my hair easy to comb while giving it a healthy shine....
Look at my hair.... Isn't it gorgeous... I really admired my own hair here...
I would really have bought the whole range as I was so in love with the products but these gorgeous and lovely products are a little bit out of my price range, so I can only spoil myself with one bottle or two, every so occasionally...
But seriously, you need to check it out and if money is not an issue for you, get the whole range, I swear they are just my favourites!!!!
