AVEENO Nourish+ Hair Care Products - A Review

I have a lot of hair! Finding the right hair products for my thick, wavy, frizzy, long hair isn't always easy. My hair needs lots of care and getting a comb through it isn't always easy.  With all that said, I love trying new Hair products. When Family Review Network offered up the opportunity I was quick to respond.

Aveeno is a company I am very familiar with, mostly for my makeup and skin care needs, especially their oatmeal bath mixes which my son has used since he was a baby.  However, I had never tried their hair care products.

Aveeno has partnered with Patrick Melville on their new products and I couldn't be happier. I love it and so does my hair.

This exclusive ACTIVE NATURALS® formula, infused with Nourishing Wheat Complex and Hydrating Oat Protein, is designed to feed your hair — replenishing moisture as it targets the weakest part of hair and 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. * NOURISH+ MOISTURIZE shampoo and conditioner system.

AVEENO® NOURISH+ REVITALIZE SHAMPOO does much more than nourish and cleanse — it helps protect hair's intrinsic moisture balance from everyday damage, invigorating it with new life. Scientific studies show that just three washes helps repair damage, providing the three key elements that give hair life — strength, softness and shine.* In a clinical trial, 88% of women who used the NOURISH+ REVITALIZE regimen had shinier hair, and 92% had significant improvement in how soft their hair felt.

AVEENO® NOURISH+ REVITALIZE CONDITIONER does much more than nourish and condition — it smoothes and helps repair everyday damage to hair, invigorating it with new life. Scientific studies show that just three washes helps repair damage, providing the three key elements that give hair life — strength, softness and shine.* In a clinical trial, 88% of women who used the regimen had shinier hair, and 92% had significant improvement in how soft their hair felt.

NOURISH+ STYLE Smoothing Shine Creme instantly smoothes and locks out frizz all day while giving hair silky new life. This luxurious, yet lightweight creme, with ACTIVE NATURALS® Nourishing Wheat Complex, helps maintain hair's moisture balance and add shine without making hair greasy or weighed down. Plus, it acts on the most damaged parts of hair to keep hair healthy-looking and prevent frizz from returning.

What I Can Tell You:

Aveeno Hair Care Products are awesome. I love the smell of my hair and how little conditioner I had to use to get a nice sheen and more importantly be able to run my big tooth comb through my hair. Thick hair that tends to frizz out looks silky, smooth and shiny. Love it! In fact, I am not the only one who loves it, family came over and my niece wrote it down for her mom to pick up for her. 

With New Years just a few short days away, check out Patrick Melville's tips to be office to party ready.

Patrick’s  Tips n Tricks

·         Get ready for this season’s festivities by going with a look that can be worn from the office to the office party.  Keep it sleek and simple with an up-do in the morning and be sure to take any accessories, pins, or hair ties you need to re-primp and jazz it up at the office. Remember less is more: adding a simple headband or jeweled-piece provides that extra layer for a perfect evening look.

·         Always prep your hairstyle with a proper wash. Remember to comb any tangles out before you wet it and use warm water to open the cuticles of the hair and to wash all the oil and dirt off. Then, you only need a dollop of shampoo to rub your hands together and apply to your scalp. Take note that you should put the shampoo on your scalp and not at the ends of your hair. Rinse your hair with cold water afterwards to close the cuticles and add to the shine of your hair. Whether you are looking for a smooth, wavy or curly style, I recommend using AVEENO® NOURISH+ Shampoos and Conditioners to keep your hair naturally beautiful for any occasion.

·         To flatten frizz on the go, dampen your hands with a finishing spray or smoothing agent like the AVEENO® NOURISH+ STYLE Shine Crème. Run hands through your hair, and then loosely pull your hair back into a bun. Wait 15 minutes and take your strands down for flawless, shiny hair in minutes.

·         When you're strapped for time do the T-zone blow-dry: dry down your part and around your hairline only. Not only will you look finished, but your hair will thank you. For best results with lasting hold all day long, use the AVEENO® NOURISH+ VOLUMIZE Shampoo and Conditioner in addition to the NOURISH+ STYLE Volumizing Foam - this combo will give you great volume and hold your style for 12 hours.

·         Many people make styling curly hair harder than it needs to be. Classic curls are in this season, so if you have them, rock them! To define and pump up those curls, use a conditioning leave-in treatment with a curl-defining spray to add softness and de-frizz those curls. I love to use the AVEENO® NOURISH+ STYLE Curl-Defining Spray Gel on my clients.

·         Think about giving the gift of beauty for the Holidays. Not only is it practical, but there’s no better gift than that of pampering someone you love. I recommend a gift certificate with at least one product to round it out, like: The Patrick Melville Salon Signature Blow Out with the AVEENO® NOURISH+ STYLE Shine Crème.  It provides nourishment needed to keep hair healthy looking and manageable after the salon.
