In partnership with Aveda
My hair seems to have changed in the last few years, from thick and curly to thinner and straighter. I don’t know the cause, but I started to notice it more after giving birth to Red Bear. And it became most evident to me when I was doing sports- suddenly my scalp was showing more than normal. After posting an image of myself on the field, a reader asked me if I had an accessory in my hair. I knew I didn’t so I started investigating the image to see what she was seeing and then I saw it—the skin under my part was quite visible looking a bit like a barrette. I was so embarrassed.
I’ve never heard about a hair product that could help address thinning hair and help it stay longer and stronger, so you can imagine how thrilled I was when Aveda asked to partner with me for their Invati™ 3-Step System for thinning hair.
The system breaks down like this:
Step 1: EXFOLIATE: The invati™ exfoliating shampoo with salicylic acid (naturally-derived from the oil of wintergreen) helps to exfoliate and renew the scalp.
Step 2 THICKEN: The invati™ thickening conditioner consisting of Soy protein and naturally derived amino acids mimic hair’s building blocks to help weightlessly thicken hair from within.
Step 3 ACTIVATE: The last step, massage in Aveda Invati™ scalp revitalizer is designed to help people keep the hair they have longer by increasing hair density and thickness. (Sounds amazing, right?!)
I’ll be honest, I was a little skeptical at first. I mean, can this really work? Of course I figured it wouldn’t hurt to try — and the product is made with naturally derived ingredients including certified organic turmeric from India.
I used them for a couple days and here’s how:
After using invati™ exfoliating shampoo and invati™ thickening conditioner, towel dry hair, and then spray Scalp Revitalizer eight times on each side of the head (total of 16 sprays), evenly covering scalp. Massage in, and don’t rinse. Then style as usual!
My hair feels softer and thicker; I think the combination has created good results. I will continue using it for a few months and see what the difference is in that time period. Everyone’s different, of course, but don’t forget to use the system as directed for best results.
