Curtain Call: Aveeno Active Naturals Nourish+Volumize Shampoo & Conditioner
Here’s another segment of Curtain Call. The product up for evaluation and review this time is Aveeno Active Naturals Nourish+Volumize Shampoo & Conditioner. I managed to get these with my Extra Care Bucks (ECB) from CVS to get more ECB with this purchase.
At 311 ml / 10.5 fl oz, this retails for $7.49 at CVS and is similarly priced at various retail and drugstores. It goes on sale from time to time (like right now!) and combined with coupons from your weekly Sunday paper or through tearpads in the store, this can essentially comes close to being free. The whole bottle lasted me for almost 2 months. With my long hair, that’s only okay. The front text reads “WITH NOURISHING WHEAT COMPLEX AND BLUE LOTUS FLOWER” and “strengthens and adds body to fine or limp hair”. The back of the bottle reads the following:
“NOURISH+VOLUMIZE SHAMPOO/CONDTIONER does much more than nourish and cleanse/condition – it creates abundance/adds body with a fusion of light weight conditioners, giving hair lush, rich life. Scientific studies show that three washes helps repair damage, providing the three key elements that give hair life – strength, softness and shine.
This exclusive ACTIVE NATURALS formula, infused with Nourishing Wheat Complex and Anti-Oxidant Blue Lotus Flower, is designed to feed your hair by replenishing moisture to protect fine, fragile hair. It zeroes in on the weakest part of hair – fortifying the hair shaft with protein where it needs it most.
Developed with a team of experts, including a leading dermatologist and stylist, our ACTIVE NATURALS formula harnesses the power of nature combined with advanced scientific methods, and is shown to give you the beautifully strong, healthy looking hair you desire and deserve.
And because it’s from AVEENO you can trust that it’s gentle on color-treated hair.
DIRECTIONS (shampoo): Apply to wet hair and lather with a gentle massaging motion. Rinse thoroughly and repeat if needed. Follow with AVEENO NOURISH+VOLUMIZE Conditioner.
DIRECTIONS (conditioner): After using AVEENO NOURISHING+VOLUMIZE Shampoo, massage into wet hair and work evenly through to ends. Rinse thoroughly.”
Verdict? I like it, but it’s a bit pricey for what you’re getting. I could get the same result from many other different brands. Formula is nice and creamy with the usual consistency of shampoo and conditioner. It cleans hair pretty well. My hair is left soft and smooth after using both shampoo and conditioner. The scent is that of a typical clean shampoo. I avoid applying conditioner to my scalp area to properly balance moisture in my hair. I find that my roots don’t need much of it, so I start application from the tips working my way up to the scalp.
This product can easily be purchased in various retail and drugstores such as Walmart, Target, ULTA, CVS, and Walgreens. It is also available online at various websites that carry beauty and personal care products.
