If you've been following GG for long, or if you've read my book, you know I'm generally a no-pooer. I've been no-pooing for a couple of years now, which means I haven't been using shampoo or conditioner. My hair washing routine involves baking soda and water to clean my hair and vinegar and water to rinse it.
But every once in awhile, a company asks me to review their hair products and I'll break my routine.
This is one of those times. I've reviewed other Ava Anderson Non-Toxic products before, so I was eager to try their hair products when one of their consultants contacted me. Why not? After all, their products have zero toxins and I'm all about promoting safe products to the GG community. I figured that even if I went back to no-pooing, you all could benefit from my review.
So, let me tell you, I love these products! The lightly scented shampoo smells wonderful. It is designed to repair, beautify and strengthen hair with mild cleansing ingredients and organic aloe vera juice. There are absolutely no harmful, damaging chemicals in the Ava Anderson shampoo.
Check out some of these ingredients for yourself: organic aloe vera leaf juice extract, organic rice bran oil,
vegetable glycerin, peppermint extract, organic mojave yucca extract, organic nettle, organic lemon
balm, organic sweet orange essential oil, organic lemon essential oil, organic
pomegranate essential oil.
The shampoo lathers up nicely with just a small bit, and rinses clean. My hair does tangle a bit after being washed, but the conditioner works nicely to detangle it and leaves it soft and manageable.
So, in addition to no-pooing for all this time, I've also stopped using any styling products in my hair. Until now. And the timing couldn't be better. I'm now sporting shorter hair than I've had in many, many years. And shorter hair needs something to help it out. Enter the Ava Anderson Styling Cream. A pea-sized drop of this lightweight styling cream gives my hair the body it needs. There's no stickiness, no filminess, no heaviness. Just a bit of bounce my flat, straight hair needs.
I'm sold on the products and am so happy consultant Nancy decided to send them to me (at no charge, of course). And I'm equally happy that she's going to send them to one of you, too, provided you have a U.S. mailing address.
So enter to win full-sized bottles of shampoo, conditioner and styling cream from the avaHAIR -- Hair Care line! The giveaway starts NOW and ends at 12:01 AM EST on April 4th (in honor of my hubby's birthday)!
