Aveda Sun Care Review
It's kinda sorta difficult to drum up excitement when it comes to haircare but I do so admit that Aveda recently captured my attention with it's new collection!
As Summer quickly approaches, better still as my vacation quickly approaches (June 1st) it's always a good time to think about good ways to get hair in tip top shape. The heat, the beach, and the pool are all harsh elements on our hair. Aveda Sun Care is a line developed to protect hair and help defend it against the Summer elements that may be fun but turn everyday into a bad hair day.
The Muse is either easy to excite or she's just digging the entire Aveda Suncare line. One thing I'm very impressed with is the lack of build up (hey, anything that's meant to cleanse the hair of chlorine shouldn't cause build up right?) and the rather interesting scent of all three products. All the products are an interesting blend of wintergreen and cinnamon bark oils, green tea extra, organic sunflower seed oil, shea butter, coconut, palm oils, and tamanu. The Muse admits she
hasn't a clue what tamanu is but she bets anything in the world it's damn important stuff. The scent might not be for everyone but I LOVE it. It's very organic smelling. Not really floral not really green and def not fresh but it's a little green and a touch of fruit and a tad bit of floral. It's interesting, trust me.
I'm impressed with all three of the products I tried out but I'm the biggest fan of the Aveda Sun Care Protective Hair Veil. This leave in spray protects hair against harmful sun rays. Ok, so no offense but if I'm being honest I just dig how it makes my hair feel soft and bouncy after application and I'm totally digging on how it makes my hair smell. As far as protecting the locks from the sun....well let's just say I don't see the point but it's on my to buy list again because props to a cool spray that makes my hair smell awesome and feel nice! Likey!
Lucky me I went swimming today so I took full advantage of seeing how Aveda Hair and Body Cleanser (Yes! Multitasking goodness! Score!) and Aveda After-Sun Hair Masque worked. I love, love how well this hair and body cleanser performs. It's ideal for toting with me on my trip next month as it works as a shower gel and a shampoo. It smells lovely and does a fine job of rinsing my hair clean after a swim and making it nice and fluffy, very smooth, and clean feeling. It's gentle enough that it's not causing any build up simply aiding in removing chlorine or salt (if you've been to the beach) plus product build up in general! Loves this stuff! Awesome in a bottle. The After-Sun Masque is just as good at restoring my hair to a nice moisturized finish. This is a tad heavy so I do have to be careful it doesn't load my hair down with silicons but all in all it conditions very well and makes my hair nice and soft plus it's a great follow up after using Aveda Hair and Body Cleanser.
I generally liked these alot and I'm Muse Approving them for purchase as they were quite worth checking out. Pretty nice to stash away in your luggage during travel if you're going to be at the beach or pool side a whole lot (or in the sun). I have a pool so I'm in it everyday, sometimes twice a day, when the weather is warm so anything that rids my hair of chlorine and keeps it from damage is always a plus in my book!
