Hi everyone! I have been so excited to do this post for you all reviewing the Aveda hair products I started using. I wanted to give these products a good amount of time to use them so I could give you the best review possible. I started using Aveda products after I recently had my long locks cut into a shorter “lob”. I mimicked my hair cut off of a popular beauty influencer who is also a hair dresser. So, I took it straight from her that these were the products I must try.
Spoiler Alert: She was right!
I use the Aveda Paddle Brush – never before did I think I could get so much volume from not using a round brush, but I really do! When I am blow drying my hair I section it off and use it in the same technique as a round brush.
When my hair is wet I add three Aveda products to it. First, I spray the Aveda Texture Tonic into the bottom half of my hair.
I then spray the Aveda Thickening Tonic throughout my entire head of hair.
Lastly, I then spray the top portion of my hair really targeting the roots with the Aveda Volumizing Tonic.
After spraying my hair with all of these products I clip the front up and let it begin to air dry a bit to get the heavy wetness off while doing my makeup. I then section my hair off as I stated before and blow dry it exactly like I would with a round brush – just using my Aveda Paddle Brush!
Lastly, for extra volume I tease my hair a bit and use the absolute best hair spray the Aveda Air Control Hair Spray. This spray is so good! it really locks in the hold needed without making your hair sticky, hard or crunchy. It is considered a light hold hair spray, but it seriously holds my hair so well!
This may seem to some people like a lot of products, and it is hefty on the product, but the results are amazing. I have never had so much volume that lasts in my hair like when I use these products.
The thickening spray increase your hair size by 30%, and I truly believe this. I can honestly feel a difference in my hair thickness and density when I use this. My ponytail is what made me realize it first, I have thin and fine hair, but a lot of it according to my hairdresser (who is an amazing woman that loves to hear all about the crazy new things I am trying!). I have never really had a “big” ponytail, but when I put my hair up after using these products I swear it doubles in size!
Also, my hair feels so good when I use these product. I am not a fan of my hair feeling very dry and straw like after certain products. These products do not dry my hair out or make it frizz when I am blow drying it, which is super important to me.
Another huge bonus is getting multiple days out of my hair, I love using hair products but am not a fan of hair products that clog my hair and cause me to need to wash it daily. I wash my hair about 2-3 times a week and use dry shampoo in between. I have used products in the past that forced me to wash daily and the health of my hair really suffered. With these products I can go about 3 days before needing to re-wash – perfect!
Here are a few photos of my hair before and after using these products:
I really feel like in the after pictures my hair doesn’t look as plastered down to my head as the before pictures. My hair is more bouncy and airy.
