My wife will testify that I am always on the hunt for new grooming products. I love testing out and trying new things because after a few months of using anything my skin and hair seems to get used to it and be less effective. It might just be in my head but it feels very real to me.
I’ve written about my hair routine before, but as a quick refresher, I only wash my hair a couple of times a week. This came after I realized I hated the way my hair felt after shampooing and conditioning every day. I initially switched to shampooing twice a week and conditioning on the off days to feel like I was doing something. Instantly my hair felt healthier and less dry. I recently embarked on testing out AVEDA’s new invati men™ shampoo and scalp revitalizer. It claimed to thicken hair and make it stronger. After a few weeks of mixing it into my grooming routine I have definitely noticed thicker, healthier hair which is huge. I still only use it a few times a week and mix in the scalp revitalizer on the days that I wash but even that has yielded great results. The nice thing about these products is that they seem gentle enough to use daily–nothing harsh in them that leaves hair feeling stripped and lifeless. Learn more about them here.
I even tried out their grooming clay and I’ve been pretty impressed. It’s a soft, pliable cream that has pretty good hold. I use it on days when I want a slightly looser look with less hold.
I was so thrilled with the way the shampoo and scalp revitalizer worked that I started using their other hair grooming products and a few of their skin products too. The aftershave is awesome–it’s creamy and moisturizing which I love and I’ve noticed less ingrown hairs where I use it on my neck which is key for me since I have sensitive skin. Speaking of sensitive skin, have a I also mentioned that I have extremely dry skin too? Ugh it’s the worst. But, I’ve been lathering this composition oil on my arms and shoulders, basically anywhere I’m a little dry, when I hop out of the shower and it’s been a lifesaver. You can also use it on your scalp to moisturize and promote healthy hair (I like to use it on days when I shampoo my hair as it adds a little moisture and body back to my hair).
Something else to note, AVEDA uses the best ingredients. They all include only the best ingredients, including certified organic essential oils and you can definitely tell. I feel a little spoiled now because I’ll never be able to settle for less. #lifeishard #justkidding
