I am so impressed!
on October 14, 2012
Been a long time customer of Amazon but unless I'm missing something, the scalp revitalizer is overpriced here. Go to the Aveda website or to an Aveda store (mine was in a large mall, and many salons carry the line) to buy this- I paid $60.00 for 150 ml of this product.
Now for the product review: I have always had baby fine, pencil straight, thin hair and I've always had to either perm my hair (until my thirties when I became sick of the time and money wasted) or I've use a lot of styling products to make it look halfway decent. Now that I've turned fifty, due to diabetes and hormone changes, my hair has thinned out even more and is limp and lifeless and dull. I was very skeptical about this product. Nothing has worked for me so far- I've had only temporary fixes to date. I read the reviews online and took a chance and shelled out a lot of money (at least for me) for the shampoo, conditioner and scalp revitalizer (the entire Invati system).
This product is incredible. I noticed a difference in my hair the first time I used it. My hair looked and felt much thicker. I used the product at night, and in the morning just wet my hair, and as I did I thought "this is where the magic goes away". However, to my surprise, although my hair did not seem as thick as it did the night before, it was still thick and held a style well. My hair actually had "bounce." It actually looks and feels healthy. So far, I am very impressed with this product, but I've only used it for a very short period.
Some women have been turned off by the smell of the revitalizer. I didn't mind it. To me it smells like herbs and I didn't find that unpleasant. It goes on a bit strong but as it dries it fades. I also note that the product was drying to the hair for some; this hasn't happened to me yet. I haven't noted any more than normal hair loss in the shower.
If you are thinking of trying this product, do so. I was glad that I did.
I am going to check in again in about a month to give an update.
