Nutriplenish: Hydrates Dull Hair

Aveda Nutriplenish Light Review

About Nutriplenish

The Nutriplenish range comes in two intensities; deep and light. The Light Nutriplenish range is designed for fine to medium hair textures that tend to be on the drier side, adding shine to dull hair and a lightweight layer of hydration. Read Keavy’s review of the Light Nutriplenish range below.

Nutriplenish Review

“The fresh floral scent is so nice to wash your hair with, and I love that the shampoo left my hair feeling clean without feeling overly stripped. The textures are lightweight and left my hair feeling so soft – even the ends that are usually dry felt healthy! I also really like that the Leave-in Conditioner doubles as a heat protectant.”

The Deep Moisture line up has a formula with 50% more butters than the Light Moisture range, intensely hydrating thicker hair textures that are dry or very dry to have a beautiful, healthy sheen.

Nutriplenish Facts

Be Curly Review

“I have been raving about the Aveda Be Curly range! Not only are the smell of all the products divine, with a fresh citrus and almost cinnamon scent, but my curls turned out better than ever! After using the range just once, my curls were soft, healthy, bouncy and tightly coiled with a hold that lasted all day. As a bonus, the products were very kind to my sensitive scalp and didn’t give me any itchiness. It’s an absolute win for me, I would buy the whole range in a heartbeat, and I encourage anyone with curls to give it a go!”.

About Botanical Repair

Powered by plant essences, the 94% natural formula of the Botanical Repair range reduces the appearance of damage whilst making your hair stronger over time. A top tip to see if you need the Botanical Repair range is to pull on a hair strand gently – healthy hair will stretch 20% and bounce back into shape, whereas damaged hair will snap or retract with broken coils. See what Zainab thought of the lightweight formulas…

Botanical Repair Review

“The Botanical Range made my hair feel instantly soft, and I think it looks healthier, especially where it has been dyed. The whole range smells great, like essential oils but not in an overpowering way. The range is all really lightweight, but I was especially impressed by the Overnight Serum; it doesn’t weigh your hair down, and I couldn’t even feel it when I went to bed, so it’s very comfortable to sleep in.”

Rosemary Mint: Balances Oily Hair

Aveda Rosemary Mint Review

About Rosemary Mint

The Rosemary Mint range purifies the hair from the scalp down, and is gentle but leaves your hair so clean and fresh. White vinegar clarifies your scalp without drying it out, and the rosemary-spearmint scent is invigorates your senses. I put the range to the test…

Rosemary Mint Review

“I struggle with an oily scalp but have dry ends, so for me, the standout is the Rosemary Mint Shampoo! It has a lightweight, almost gel texture that instantly made my hair feel so clean and really helped me last 3 days between washes without my hair becoming greasy. I also found I needed to use less dry shampoo than usual after my Rosemary Mint washday. The conditioner was nourishing, but as my long hair is naturally wavy and dry, I have switched to the Nutriplenish Light Conditioner, and it’s a perfect combo!”

Rosemary Mint Facts

  1. Cleans oily hair without stripping it
  2. Gentle for all hair types prone to grease
  3. Lightweight hydration
