Aveeno positively nourishing - positively fabulous!

I have been a fan of Aveeno for years so I was intrigued when I saw a display of Aveeno hair products at the drugstore.  I read up on the nourishing wheat complex which helps replenish lost moisture by zeroing in on the weakest parts of the hair and depositing just the right amount of conditioners for hair to look and feel stronger, softer and shinier.  I also discovered the claim that it would nourish damaged hair back to life in just three washes.  My intrigue turned to interest and I decided that I needed to test out this claim for myself.
My hair is chin length, fine and colour treated so I decided the best one for me would be the VOLUMIZE formula.

Day One - I wash and condition with the Volumize shampoo and conditioner and go to work.  At 9:15 I call Christelle and tell her that she has to come downstairs and feel my hair - it's that soft! (She won't, I think she's jealous!)

Day Two - I wash and condition with the Volumize shampoo and conditioner and go to work.  2 people ask me if I got a hair cut and how much they like it.  (I hadn't!)

Day Three - I wash and condition with the Voumize shampoo and conditioner and go to work.  I'm in the bathroom after lunch which has the dubious distinction of having the most unflattering lighting ever.  Normally my hair looks like a flyaway mess in this mirror, today my hair looks perfectly smooth, like I'm wearing a ton of serum on it.  (I'm not wearing any!)

I'm sold.  This stuff is awesome!  I totally think you need some of your own, although the Volumize one might not be right for you so here are all the options:

positively nourishing MOISTURIZE Shampoo and Conditioner - moisturizes dry, damaged hair.

positively nourishing REVITALIZE Shampoo and Conditioner - help protects hair's moisture balance and repair everyday damage.

positively nourishing VOLUMIZE Shampoo and Conditioner - infuses hair with lush, rich body.

positively nourishing SHINE Shampoo and Conditioner - replenishes moisture and promotes shine.

positively nourishing SOOTHE Shampoo - helps to soothe dry, itchy scalp.

There is also a CONDITIONING Leave-In Treatment

All products are gentle enough for colour treated hair.

Aveeno positively nourishing products - 310ml (except the Leave-In which is 153ml) - $8.99 - available now at a drug or mass retailer near you.

  1. Sold. I will definitely give this a try the next time I'm at the drugstore, haha. I'm an Aveeno fan, too! :) Thanks for the post!

  2. Mellie, I tried the Revitalize combo, it did nothing for me. But then my hair is thick, so it might be a different story.


  3. Mellie, you should totally give it a try unless your hair is very thick and chemically relaxed like Christelle's!

    Best, Lisamarie

  4. I love Aveeno! You are sooo convincing... I think I might spend some Shoppers Optimum points on the volumizing ones. It sounds like we have the same hair type (colour treated, fine, and fly aways galore). I need this in my life, stat!

  5. Hi Arianne,
    if you're hair is fine and flyaway then you should totally try it. Even Christelle admitted that my hair looked good and she hates to say anything nice to me! ;-)

    Best, Lisamarie
