Aveda Smooth Infusion
By Carrie Pokrefke
Back in February, I posted about hair health and fessing up to my hair stylist that I was using Pantene. And, as I suspected, she got onto me for using it. I left there with some organic shampoo and conditioner, which I didn’t like. I tried another organic shampoo and conditioner from Whole Foods, but gave up on it after a week.
That weekend, I found myself at the Aveda store. I used to use Aveda hair products along time ago, but quit using them. I don’t even remember why I stopped using their products. Since I have become more aware of the products I use and the company that manufactures those products, I really liked what Aveda’s mission is. From their website: “our green ingredient promise at aveda, we continually strive to increase our use of naturally derived ingredients, i.e. those in which more than 50% of the molecule comes from a plant, non-petroleum mineral, or other natural source, like water. we set other standards for use, too, like avoiding certain types of processing. Our standards have made us a pioneer in the green cosmetics world: now more than 90% of our essential oils and 89% of our raw herbal ingredients* are certified organic.” They also use 100% post consumer recycled PET for skin care and hair styling and they manufacturing using certified wind power.
So, I let myself get lead around the store by a guy from Alabama who loaded me up with a bagful of samples! We went over my hair needs and I settled on Aveda’s Smooth Infusion product line.
I LOVE this shampoo and conditioner! It is fabulous! I don’t use a lot of the product – and I have REALLY long hair and it does a great job. My hair is smooth and silky and looks healthy. I couldn’t be more satisfied with the results.
If you are in the market for new hair products, seriously consider Aveda products. They are a great company to support and offer wonderful products!
