Aveda Cherry Almond Shampoo & Conditioner

     Let me preface by saying that I know Aveda products have been around forever! I have NEVER used them before though. Hard to believe, right? Totally true. I recently emceed a charity trivia night & the person that set it up is a stylist. She put together a gift bag for me as a "Thank You" & there were some gift cards to her salon & a bunch of these cute little Aveda samples. I grabbed a couple of them this morning to give them a try. Pictured are the Cherry Almond Softening Shampoo & the accompanying conditioner. 

     I have always been particular about what I put on my hair, I'm sure most of us are. I've got a lot of very thick hair & it's naturally wavy to boot. That means it tangles easy. Right now, it's about shoulder length & I used that whole little bottle of conditioner on it! lol! More on that in a minute. This being salon products, I really didn't feel like I had anything to worry about, but I ALWAYS worry when trying something new on my hair.

     The smell is AMAZING!!! It smells like luxury, that's the best word for it. Very few hair products smell like the scents on the bottles. How many times have you opened a lid & given that bottle that tiny little squeeze so you could get a whiff & were instantly sorry you did? Yeah, I know. Way too many to count. No worries if you do that to the Cherry Almond Aveda. Trust me, you'll want to keep doing that little quick squeeze. This doesn't have all the junk in it that lathers up either. It's a clean formula so you get clean hair. You get some lather but not a bubble bath on your head. It rinses clean, no film left on your hair, just that great smell. 

     Now, for the Cherry Almond conditioner. Yes, once again you're greeted by that incredible smell. I squeezed that little bottle into my hand and worked it into my hair & there wasn't a tangle to be found. Keep in mind, I mentioned above that I have a lot of very thick, naturally wavy hair that tangles easy. Once this conditioner hit it, my hands just glided right through it like a hot knife through butter. I was shocked! 

     This was my very first experience with Aveda products, but it won't be my last. I've had my hair in a ponytail all day & when I swing my hair around, I can still smell the luxury. Yeah, Cherry Almond Aveda shampoo & conditioner has won a spot in my shower. Have you used it? Tell me about it! Will you try it now? Let me know! Don't forget to subscribe to my blog. You never know what I'll review next.
