I Tried The Aveda Invati Hair Thickening System {Plus, A Giveaway!}

In partnership with Aveda.

Last month, I told you about my post-partum hair thinning, and how the hair on my head basically revolted after having my second kid (yes, that innocent-looking little boy above!). I also told you how I was going to be testing out Aveda's Invati system to try and bring my hair back to life.

A reminder: Invati is a three-step system containing a shampoo, a conditioner (there are two types: regular or intensive), and a leave-in spray. So, I've been using the Exfoliating Shampoo, which removes pore-clogging sebum and product residue; the Thickening Intensive Conditioner, which helps thicken and prevent breakage (it also moisturizes like crazy); and the Scalp Revitalizer, which features an Ayuveric blend and stimulates the scalp with massage. 

Well, I've been using it for several weeks now and I'm ready with my report: I do notice a difference. My hair feels noticeably thicker, and when I look at these photos now, I feel like it really looks fuller, too! The immediate benefits of the product are the real deal--your hair will feel much "bulkier" even the very first time you use it. Mine definitely did. But I'm starting to notice some other benefits, too, which is cool. For one, my hair seems to be breaking less easily, which means I'm losing less hair when I style, so BIG PLUS there! 

I also really appreciate that there is nothing gross or medicinal about the line. Products of this nature aren't typically accused of being super appealing, but these really are. Everything smells awesome (they have that great, herbal, "Aveda" smell) and feels good going on. Even the leave-in (which, truth be told, I was nervous about) is nice. It's very light and feels cooling and kind of refreshing--it's not heavy or slimy or anything like that. I also really like that all three products also come in adorable travel-size bottles (that's them in my "what's in my makeup bag" pic above). It's great because you can totally take them to the gym or on vacation and not miss any precious hair-thickening, scalp-stimulating time. 

Anyway, I'm very excited to keep using the line and see where my hair goes from here. Stay tuned...

So, would you like to try it now, too? Well, you're in luck! Once again, I've partnered with Aveda to give away five complete, full-size sets of all three products, valued at $123. Enter via the Rafflecopter widget below and good luck!

Such beautiful hair! I love the travel sized products. I have so much hair though so I was insanely excited when mine fell out post-partum.

Post-partum hair thinning/shedding is the worst. My first pregnancy did wonders for my hair, but after I had my second, I thought for sure I was going to go bald. LOL. Your hair looks amazing and I'm glad you've found some products that are working well for you. I will definitely have to give these a try.

Aveda has some awesome products! My complaint is that it's hard to upkeep my color, make my hair look smooth, and not damage it.

It looks beautiful and thick to me. My hair, nails and skin was amazing when I was pregnant. So sad how a bundle of happiness wrecks havoc on our bodies after the fact.

Brittney said...

Your hair looks great! After this baby, if I have any hair thinning I will definitely keep these Aveda products in mind. Thanks!

Mariana said...

Wow; your hair is gorgeous! I'd love to see a before and after picture!

My hair isn't thinning because I have so much of it, but I have noticed that I'm losing it at a faster rate than before the three kiddos. Pregnancy does weird things to our bodies, that's for sure :)

My hair is too thick but this sounds perfect for my mom who wishes she had thicker hair.Glad this is working for you!

Sondra Barker said...

Let me start of by saying your hair looks AMAZING! I can't say that I have gone through the same experience but I am always looking for ways to add a little volume to my hair. I will defiantly need to try Aveda!

I had a severe hair thinning problem after having my third child. My hair is still recovering. It didn't start to thin out until she turned one and a half. Now she is almost 3. I'm taking hair vitamins.
