Review - Aveda Rosemary Mint Shampoo and Conditioner

This unique daily shampoo adds body to fine hair—without stripping, build-up or static electricity. Formulated with peppermint to awaken your senses and rosemary to help protect from environmental damage. Its pure plant aroma naturally energizes and motivates your mind and body.

This daily conditioner adds weightless body and shine while preventing tangles and static. The tonic properties of rosemary and peppermint cool and revitalize your scalp.

Movie Maven says:

I just want to keep smelling this shampoo and conditioner forever. It smells so good, like a minty forest. I love using it just for the smell. Aveda knows what they're doing when it comes to delicious-smelling products, and this Rosemary-Mint Shampoo and Conditioner are no exception. As far as function...well, that remains to be seen. While I love Aveda overall, I don't think this shampoo is quite what my hair needs. While I love the invigorating feeling it gives my scalp, and how my hair looks after it's just been washed, my hair seems to be going limp a lot faster with this shampoo than with some others I've used. That said, however, I have a freakishly oily scalp and absolutely must wash my hair every day to prevent me from looking like a recently-arrested celebrity mugshot (Nick Nolte comes to mind). So because this shampoo is recommended for "fine to normal" hair as opposed to "oily," I may not be the target audience. The same goes for the conditioner - I don't use conditioner at all because of my overactive sebaceous glands, so I told my roommates to feel free to use it. They freaked. I'm taking that as a good sign. I did use it once for review purposes, and it smells just as glorious as the shampoo. So if you like natural things and have fine to normal hair (or roommates who do) - check this out!

Sheba says: Wow, these are really refreshing products to use. They feel so good as you are using them and they work!! Yes, I do notice a bit more texture and the appearance of more body to my fine hair. I usually wash my hair every other day as the day's accumulation of everything gives it a bit of uuumpph for the second day -- but after that I get the Nick Nolte look, myself. When using the shampoo I thought -- gee, it even feels like it is cleaning my hair so well!! To get the extra body is a real bonus. I did notice the static free condition of my hair also. Aveda Rosemary Mint Shampoo and Conditioner are two hard working, terrific smelling products! Like Movie Maven said check them out, especially if you love natural products. Your hair will be glad you did!!
